Ebola: as ZMapp stocks run out doctors turn to alternative treatments

ZMapp is for now out of the picture. There are no more stocks anywhere in the world. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States has promised the company more than $42m (£27.6m) to speed up production and trials, but the drug consists of three monoclonal antibodies that have to be grown in the leaves of genetically modified tobacco plants, which takes months. It is also very expensive, which means that mass production for Africa is unlikely.

Bill Clinton identified in lawsuit against his former friend and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein who had ‘regular’ orgies at his Caribbean compound that the former president visited multiple times

A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton’s friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute.

Bill Clinton’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire’s private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves.

Ooooh, big shocker there! Bill Clinton was having sex with girls not his wife!!!!

The Battle of Our Time: Breaking the Spell of the Corporate State

In late 2010, political activist John Perry Barlow tweeted: “The first serious info-war is now engaged. The field of battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops.” In the last four years, new insurgencies have arisen from cyberspace to participate in the battle against government corruption and secrecy. From Snowden’s disclosure of NSA mass surveillance to the release of the CIA torture report evidencing war crimes and murder of innocent people, a crisis of legitimacy and moral depravity of authority are becoming increasingly undeniable. All of this reveals an invisible force of governance working to control the thought and perceptions of the greater population for nefarious ends.

WikiLeaks: U.S. worried Israel becoming ‘the promised land’ for organized crime

The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv sent a cable to the State Department in May 2009 expressing little confidence in the Israel Police’s ability to counter the growing wave of organized crime.

The cable, released on WikiLeaks, said the embassy was taking pains to prevent members of crime families from being issued visas to the United States.

The cable, under the headline “Israel, a promised land for organized crime?” notes that the U.S. Embassy was following Israeli crime families closely and considered them a serious threat to the United States. The embassy has set up a database on the subject with the help of Israeli and American law-enforcement agencies.

“Given the growing reach and lethal methods of Israeli OC [Organized Crime], blocking the travel of known OC figures to the United States is a matter of great concern,” according to the cable, signed by James Cunningham, the U.S. ambassador to Israel.

New IRS Rules on Dark Money Likely Won’t Be Ready Before 2016 Election

The Internal Revenue Service says it won’t come out with new proposed rules for so-called dark money groups until late spring at the earliest, increasing the likelihood that no changes will take effect before the 2016 elections.

These groups — social welfare nonprofits that can engage in politics, but do not have to disclose their donors — have become a major force in elections, pouring at least $257 million into the 2012 elections. The Wesleyan Media Project estimates that dark money paid for almost half the TV ads aired in the 2014 Senate races.

Remember as well that if this were a Muslim or a group of them engaged in the very same behavior and were let off the hook, the JMSM would be SCREEEEEECHING at the top of its lungs how the US Justice Department and USGOV had been ‘co-opted’ and ‘taken over’ by Hamas, ISIS, ISIL, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, etc, and how the next step was them overthrowing the US Constitution, instituting Shariah law and circumcising young girls.

Prince Andrew could face a Scotland Yard investigation over sex abuse claims

The Duke of York could face a Scotland Yard investigation into Virginia Roberts’s claims if she makes a formal complaint against him, police sources have confirmed.

Despite the fact that all criminal prosecutions are brought in the name of the Queen, members of the Royal family are not immune from the law.

Much ads I like to see Andrew (and Dershowitz) sweat a bit, I am wondering if this is not a variation on the Dominic Strauss Khan gambit by the bankers. Strauss got too close to the issue of the missing gold, and was ejected with a tawdry sex scandal. This story about Andrew and Virginia Roberts actually goes back three years. So why the sudden heating up now?

Britain has been making noises about leaving the EU. Maybe this scandal is being used to blackmail the royals into supporting keeping Britain tangled up in Europe.

50-Year-Old White Man Carjacked, Bashed In Head With Hammer 13 Times By 2 Blacks = No Hate Crime, No Media, No Protests

In 2012, A 50 year old white man named Mark Slavin was pulled out of his vehicle by two black men and bashed in the head with a hammer 13 times in Florida. This occurred a short distance from where Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, only a month prior. Slavin reportedly died two years later. But his assailants, Julius Bender and Yahaziel Israel, were never charged with murder and were never even charged with a hate crime. The victim’s father went to the FBI for help and they told him to get a lawyer. The father also contacted two congressmen and s senator: Congressman Walter Jones, R-N.C.; Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.; and Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., but they ignored him. No major media outlets have reported on this story. Here is the tragic story of Mark Slavin- that you have never heard. Because #MarkSlavinMatters.

Two U.S. citizens implicated in failed coup in Gambia

Two U.S. citizens have been charged with taking part in a failed coup last month to overthrow the Gambian government, a botched effort that ended with some of the attackers being killed and others fleeing the small West African country, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

The men, Cherno Njie, 57, of Minnesota, and Papa Faal, 46, of Texas, were part of a ring of approximately a dozen co-conspirators who agreed to participate in the coup that turned bloody, according to a criminal complaint.

In an interview with the FBI, Faal admitted playing a role in the coup and identified Njie, a businessman, as one of the leaders and main financiers of the plot, the complaint alleges. Faal told the FBI that Njie intended to serve as the interim leader of the country after they deposed of 49-year-old Yahya Jammeh, the president of Gambia.

Pensions of Union Workers Cut in Federal Budget

Well, there’s something very radical happened that people haven’t been talking about very much. Normally a budget is supposed to decide what gets funded and what doesn’t get funded, and it’s simply a decision of what to cut back. A budget is not supposed to rewrite the law.

But what happened is something very radical. They rewrote two laws. One of the laws was about bank derivatives that Elizabeth Warren has spoken about, promising to bail out Citibank and other banks. If they lose on derivatives, they’re going to get bailed out like they did in 2008.

The Royal Family are exempt from Freedom of Information requests and can veto BBC programmes. Why do we put up with this?

Let us go back to Prince Andrew, the prodigal son. The Palace has never denied that he has, for years, been cavorting with insalubrious billionaires and vicious autocrats. Human rights? Why should an ageing, playboy prince care about those? Prince Charles is matey with Arab despots too. The next time you feel the urge to denounce Robert Mugabe, remember these royal appeasers. Yes Blair, Clinton and Bush also had unsavoury friendships. But they lost power, eventually. Our royals can carry on sleazing indefinitely.

 

Hezbollah’s Drug Trafficking: A Mere Propaganda

Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) was not alone to accuse Hezbollah for narco-terrorism and drug trafficking. Israeli media has been publishing inconsistent stories about “the success” of the internal security forces (Shin Bet) to expose “Hezbollah-related” drug traffickers.
Furthermore, the Saudi media (Arabic) also accuse Hezbollah of narco-terrorism and they used to invent imaginary stories like “Drug trafficking is Hezbollah’s major funding source” and “Hezbollah is increasing drug trade to replace shortage of the Iranian funds”..etc..

 

London police spend millions snooping on journalists

Temperatures in Hawaii dropped into the 50s, setting records on three islands and tying a record in Honolulu Sunday morning.

The low of 54 degrees in Lihue and Kahului broke records for Kauai and Maui. The previous record of 59 degrees in Lihue was set in 2005. The low in Kahului broke a record of 55 set for this date in 1971.

In Hilo, the low temperature of 59 degrees broke the previous record of 60 set in 1999 on Sunday’s date.

 

Obamas in Royal Trouble for Dining at Restaurant with $500,000 Membership Fee

Nearing the end of the their 17-day vacation in Hawaii, President Obama and the First Lady had their New Year’s Day dinner at one of the most expensive restaurants in Hawaii – where memberships can run upwards of $500,000.

The Obamas enjoyed a nearly three-hour-long, 15-course meal that is priced at nearly $300 a head. According to Honolulu Magazine, that doesn’t include the dessert, wine, or tip, and a dinner for two can run $1000 or more.

Vintage Cave’s website describes the restaurant as nothing short of a restaurant for the elite of America.

I wonder if they kicked out the other diners while the Obamas were there.

The Government Spent a Lot of Time in Court Defending NSA Spying Last Year

EFF was suing the NSA before it was cool. We filed our first lawsuit against the NSA for mass spying in 2008, after the NSA butted into our lawsuit against AT&T for helping the NSA do mass spying. We’ve also been doing Freedom of Information lawsuits trying to ensure you know what the NSA is up to for many years before that. But when it comes to fighting unconstitutional spying, the more the merrier. And 2014 was awfully merry: litigation challenging NSA surveillance moved forward in multiple cases, giving the government plenty of time to demonstrate exactly how outrageous its arguments in defense of mass spying are.

US drone fleet at ‘breaking point’ over operator shortage

An internal service memo reveals that the US Air Force combat missions operability is stretched to the limit due to a persistent lack of qualified personnel. And the Pentagon’s rivalry with civil drone operators is only growing.

The US Air Force has no shortage of MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper assault drones, yet it is running out of experienced drone operators, making those in the ranks working flat out, The Daily Beast reports, citing an internal service memo.

It indicated that the Air Combat Command (ACC) cannot keep up with educating and training new personnel to satisfy Pentagon’s ever-growing demand for drone flights.

Drones not only surveille: they also kill, and many times, completely innocent men, women, children, and the medically fragile elderly are wiped off the face of this earth due to US military drone strikes.

Intelligent, moral people in our military know this, and I suspect that this is why people have been avoiding being trained for this kind of service as though it was Kryptonite, because performing extrajudicial assassinations from the sky is not a computer game with a “re-set” button.

I do not know what the numbers are on PTSD cases are in this line of military work, but I would imagine that it could, potentially, be very high.

Czech President Says ‘Only Poorly Informed People’ Don’t Know About Ukraine Coup

The Czech Republic’s President Milos Zeman said, in an interview, in the January 3rd edition of Prague’s daily newspaper Pravo, that Czechs who think of the overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych, on 22 February 2014, as having been like Czechoslovakia’s authentically democratic “Velvet Revolution” are seeing it in a profoundly false light, because, (as Russian Television translated his statement into English) “Maidan was not a democratic revolution.” He said that this is the reason why Ukraine now is in a condition of “civil war,” in which the residents of the Donbass region in Ukraine’s southeast have broken away from the Ukrainian Government.

Fascism Will be Fought 2015: Defending Humanity by Reason or Force

snip: The only circumstance, under which they would let the rest of us survive and exist, would be, if we were to become their unconditional slaves; not just servants, but slaves.

They want to rule over us and simultaneously they demand to be feared, admired and adored. Yes, the control, the submission, has to be total. And all those servile, shameful feelings we are expected to demonstrate have to be absolute, ‘pure’ and unconditional.

You are guessing correctly: it all has its roots somewhere ‘back there’ – in the era of the ‘Holy Inquisition’.

If we dare to resist, they are capable of nuking us, reducing all of us to dust, even if they and their families would also vanish in that fire.

It is because these people are true extremists and fanatics, because they want absolutely everything, because they are maniacs in possession not only of tremendous propaganda, surveillance and security apparatuses, but also of nukes.

The Chinese are Coming: Beijing in the Balkans and Eastern Europe

The chatter about Beijing’s economic surge coincided well with its Balkans drive, yet another means by which the Chinese business juggernaut is seeking satiation. Chinese diplomats and figures are not strangers to the region.

Last month, Beijing exerted its already noted muscle in the southern European, Balkans region, holding discussions with Serbian counterparts on further financial involvement. The point of convergence was the Central and Eastern European-China summit, continuing last years 16+1 initiative begun in Bucharest.

To minimize the time goods get from China and Asia to Europe will also make those goods more attractive, from a price point perspective, to potential European companies.

And the World Was Split in Twain

In 1991, the Cold War between the US and the USSR ended, as, economically, the USSR had run its course. Since that time, the US has had the ability to back off on armaments and to strengthen itself economically, to become even more powerful as the world’s present empire.

But, of course, that’s not what they did. Instead, they went headlong in the direction of becoming a more highly armed, more fascist state. Along the way, they became extremely reckless with their economy, following a Keynesian model that contributed to the greatest debt bubble the world has ever seen.

 

Newly Renamed High Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Toxic Mercury

Now branded as ‘fructose’ in processed foods thanks to the whole issue of the public absolutely avoiding high-fructose corn syrup like the plague, it’s important to look back at one landmark study that revealed the presence of ultra-toxic mercury within the ingredient.

Mercury is, as all of the experts admit, toxic in all of its forms. And as the study by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy found, nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products that listed HFCS as the first or second ingredient were found to contain it.

Even the co-author of the study, Dr. David Wallinga, warns:

“Mercury is toxic in all its forms. Given how much high-fructose corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of mercury never before considered. We are calling for immediate changes by industry and the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] to help stop this avoidable mercury contamination of the food supply.”

Sony Hack a Prime Excuse for New US Cybersecurity Laws

Congress has been reluctant to pass the various draconian cybersecurity laws pushed by the administration in recent years, but that may be changing because of the high-profile Sony Pictures hack .

With the FBI ‘successfully’ pinning it on North Korea, at least so far as everyone on Capital Hill is concerned, there is a great deal of pressure for Congress to “do something,” and little interest in the evidence that North Korea had nothing to do with it.

Memo to the FBI: if you had real, actionable evidence that North Korea hacked into SONY, that would be one thing; but you don’t so the charge here is nothing more than a bold-faced lie, and both US citizens, and the world, knows it.

The only bloody reason you pinned this on North Korea is that North Korea, at the New Year, was reaching out to South Korea for a new round of talks, aimed at ratcheting down the tension between the two countries.

Should that have happened, it would have curtailed this administration’s ability to engage in war with North Korea, as a back door to a war with China, which must defend it due to treaty obligations.

The FBI’s credibility, if it was not before, is in absolute meltdown, and thinking Americans do not believe one word you say.

 

HOMELAND SECURITY DEPT. BLUNDER OPENED DOOR TO CYBERSECURITY ATTACKS ON POWER AND WATER SYSTEMS

Sometimes even when it’s trying to do the right thing, the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) steps on a rake. A recent miscue by the department could make it easier for someone to bring down the nation’s power grid. A Freedom of Information Act request was filed with DHS for documents on Operation Aurora, which was a cyberattack on Google. The department responded with 800 pages of documents, according to Patrick Tucker at Defense One. However the documents weren’t about Operation Aurora, but were instead on the Aurora Project, which in 2007 demonstrated how easy it would be to disable the nation’s electric and water supply grids.

 

Huckabee: It’s an Urgent Time to Stand with Israel

Israel to Divert Military Budget to Settlement Expansion

Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon have announced they will divert some $18 million from the nation’s military budget , which includes money provided as direct military aid from the United States and others, to settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.

Netanyahu had promised to provide the money to construction 300 more homes in Beit El settlement after the 2012 court decision to demolish 5 apartment buildings built illegally on privately owned Palestinian land.

Annexation and asset forfeiture have been the key Israeli governmental tools to making sure, if there is ever a Palestinian nation, that the physical land it upon which it will exist will be no larger than a postage stamp.

By deferring money from the US government’s grants (read: our taxes)which were originally engineered to insure Israel’s military competitive edge, Netanyahu is saying to Obama “Up yours!!”

What President Obama and Congress should do, in response to this action, is to immediately stop all financial and military aid to Israel, which is already illegal under the Symington Amendment.

Then, that money should be used to repair the US’s crumbling infrastructure.

Of course, that will only happen when pigs fly, due to AIPAC’s generous contributions, both in terms of finance and marketing, for those Congressional Representatives who will do whatever Tel Aviv wants them to do.

And if you don’t believe me, just take a good, hard look at the new sanctions the Menendez-Kirk-Schumer wishes to impose on Iran, even before the P5+1 talks are due to resume. IF these gentlemen manage to find a “veto proof majority” on this bill, it will force Iran to walk away from the negotiating table, which is precisely what it is engineered to do. And who is just salivating over such a potential outcome?!?

Israel.

As reported at lobelog.com:

Copies of the bill that Sens. Kirk , Menendez , and Schumer hope to introduce in the Senate this week — presumably to be pressed for passage after the Christmas/New Year recess — are circulating today around Washington, and, as predicted, it is clearly designed to sabotage last month’s first-phase deal (the Joint Plan of Action) on Tehran’s nuclear program, as well as prospects for a final agreement. The bill is called the Iran Nuclear Weapon Free Act of 2013 , although I would prefer to call it the Wag the Dog Act of 2014, given the implicit discretion it gives to Bibi Netanyahu to commit the U.S. to war with Iran. Its key provisions, as described by the sponsors, are laid out at the end of this post. As I’ve noted in past posts, the two main co-sponsors of this legislation are also two of the biggest recipients of campaign funding from “pro-Israel” political action committees (PACs) associated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in the U.S. Congress, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ Open Secrets website. By a wide margin, Kirk was the biggest recipient of pro-Israel PAC money in Congress since 2002; in his most recent campaign (2012), Menendez received more than $340,000 from pro-Israel Pacs, beating out all other Senate candidates. Schumer, a major rainmaker for other Democratic candidates (which poses a very serious challenge to the Obama administration in keeping his party in line on any vote on this bill) ranked fifth in his 2010 race at more than $260,000, far behind Kirk, the year’s winner at nearly $640,000. Let there be no doubt about it: this bill was approved by AIPAC and is thus as close to the position of the Israeli government as its followers here believe will be politically palatable. (Saudi Arabia will also be pleased.)

 

The Walls Are Crumbling Down Around the “Official 9/11 Story” – Why?

An absolutely monumental shift is in process that most have not recognized yet. The truth, or at least some truth, is about to be shown to the American masses about 9/11. I say American masses because everywhere I’ve gone in the world outside of the US, with few exceptions, almost everyone knows that the US government conspiracy theory on 9/11 is for people with tinfoil hats that are either completely zombified or are under mass hypnosis. Most of the rest of the world looks on the US like “The Truman Show” and can’t believe how many people in the show don’t realize it’s not real.

 

Russia’s “Startling” Proposal To Europe: Dump The US, Join The Eurasian Economic Union

In other words, just as slowly, the world is starting to grasp the bottom line: it is not the financial exposure to Russia, or the threat of financial contagion should Russia suffer a major recession or worse: it is something far simpler that will lead to the biggest harm for Europe’s countries. The lack of trade. Because while central banks can monetize everything, leading to an unprecedented asset bubble which if only for the time being boosts investor and consumer confidence, they can’t print trade – that all important driver of growth in a globalized world long before central banks were set to monetize over $1 trillion in bonds each and every year to mask the fact that the world is deep in a global depression.

Recently passed American legislation states that if the Palestinians initiate any action against Israel at the ICC, the State Department would have to stop American aid to the PA, which comes to some $400 million annually.

Lawmakers seek Saudi 9/11 smoking gun

Some members of Congress are ramping up their call for the public release of 28 classified pages from the government’s 9/11 report. The top-secret pages reportedly reveal Saudi funding of the terrorist attack.

On Wednesday, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., will join former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham of Florida for a Capitol Hill press conference on House Resolution 428, demanding that President Obama declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.

The 28 pages were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained under seal.

Saudi Arabia does not have a history of dirty tricks, nor a demonstrated ability to carry out such deceptions. More to the point, Saudi Arabia has no motive to attack the United States.
The Saudi princes have grown very rich indeed through the Petrodollar arrangement. Saudi Arabia buys many American products and weapons ($61 billion in 2011), and unlike Israel, the American taxpayer does not
have to give them the money first with which to buy those weapons. Whereas Israel constantly takes money out of the US, the Saudis pour it in! Private Saudi investment in the US economy is over $400 billion. Saudi Arabia is a major creditor to the US Government. Exact figures are hard to find but Saudi Arabia has loaned the US Government hundreds of billions of dollars.

Saudi Arabia is not going to risk an attack on the US because all that wealth would vanish. The Saudi wealth inside the US would be frozen or seized, and the outstanding loans to the US would never be repaid.
The “useful idiots” trying to save Israel by blaming 9-11 on Saudi Arabia have yet to come up with a motive for the Saudis to do something like 9-11 that risks losing all that cash.

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was
still alive after 9-11
and sued the US Government for defaming him.

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don’t need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Rob Kirby – Financial Meltdown and Confiscation of Your Money Coming in 2015

Rob Kirby of KirbyAnalytics.com thinks what is happening with oil prices being cut in half in a matter of months is no accident. Kirby explains, “I look at what is transpiring in the crude oil market as yet another engineered or financial trickery on the part of the financial elites. . . . What this breakdown in the crude oil price is going to spawn another financial crisis. It will be tied to the junk debt that has been issued to finance the shale oil plays in North America. It is reported to be in the area of half a trillion dollars’ worth of junk debt that is held largely on the books of large financial institutions in the western world. When these bonds start to fail, they will jeopardize the future of these financial institutions. I do believe that will be the signal for the Fed to come riding to the rescue with QE4.

Debunking the “The Saudis did 9-11″ nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don’t need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel recently pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions. More recently, Veteran’s Today has signed onto the sales-force for this latest hoax.

Jones Lynch, and Massie are called a press conference to announce bill HR428, which will “authorize” the declassification of this hoax.

Now, we all know how DC works. If these congresscritters wanted the document to be made public they would leak it. They could send it to WikiLeaks. It happens all the time. This caterwauling is just an attention-getting device to try to trick Americans into supporting this document before they have actually seen it, so that once it is released, they will support it because it is what “they” wanted!

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn’t have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

‘Political manipulation’: Germany wants new Greek govt to obey forced administration

The German government insists it wants Greece to stay in the eurozone and isn’t drafting any contingency plans in case of ‘Grexit’. This shows Germany is adamant about keeping Greece under the domination of the ‘troika’, journalist Ernst Wolff told RT.

“The goal of the German government, the European Union and even the government in Athens itself is to keep Greece in the euro zone,” German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said in an interview on Sunday.

“There were no, and there are no, other plans to the contrary,” he added, without directly refuting Der Spiegel’s report that a common belief in the German government was that the eurozone is stable enough to cope with potential Greece exit.

“That’s why we can’t be blackmailed and why we expect the Greece government, no matter who leads it, to abide by the agreements made with the EU,” Gabriel added, echoing an earlier statement by a high-ranking member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party, Michael Fuchs.

So if Greece defaults on its EU debt, what is Germany going to do, INVADE?!?

I think not.

Royals take unusual step to deny Prince Andrew underage sex claims

The Duke of York returned to Windsor from a new year holiday in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier to face what courtiers described as “lurid and deeply personal” claims detailing his alleged relations over a decade ago with Virginia Roberts.

Aides stepped up a highly unusual royal operation launched on Saturday to categorically deny the claims. Prince Andrew personally decided to issue a strong denial while still in Verbier.

He approved a statement, extraordinary in its frankness for a member of the royal family, which vehemently denied “any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts” and added: “The allegations made are false and without any foundation.”

The rich and privileged live a very different life than we mere mortals do; and for many of them, the rules and norms do not apply.

Normally, I wouldn’t report on a story like this, but it is beginning to feel more and more like Clinton’s angry allegation that “I did not have sexual relations with that woman…(Monica Lewinsky)!”, which proved, ultimately, to be an outright lie.

I have to wonder if these rooms, in which such acts were allegedly perpetrated, were bugged with both video and audio.

To do these acts makes one susceptible to blackmail. I am mightily surprised that Prince Andrew wasn’t even aware of that possibility, in this digital age.

Greek euro exit would be ‘Lehman Brothers squared’: economist

A decision by a new Greek government to leave the eurozone would set off devastating turmoil in financial markets even worse than the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, a leading international economist warned Saturday.

A Greek exit would likely spark runs on Greek banks and the country’s stock market and end with the imposition of severe capital controls, said Barry Eichengreen, an economic historian at the University of California at Berkeley. He spoke as part of a panel discussion on the euro EURUSD, -0.77% crisis at the American Economic Association’s annual meeting.

The exit would also spill into other countries as investors speculate about which might be next to leave the currency union, he said.

The real problem here, should Greece leave the Euro, and default on their debt, there is a potential crash of credit default markets, which could well go global.

What Most Police Officers Think Of The US Constitution

Face the facts. Most police officers swore to uphold the constitution because it was a necessary component of their induction ceremony. No induction equals no job, and no job equals no paycheck. People will metaphorically roll their eyes and swear to uphold anything if it means the difference in bringing home the bacon or not.

If the constitution is something a lot of them really don’t have “the feels” for, then you obviously need to possess it for yourself. Because you cannot count on the police to follow the rules, nor abide by the limitations on authority that the document is supposed to enforce.

DARPA Developing Microdrones Designed to Sneak Into Homes

The federal government apparently isn’t content with remotely watching and recording your every electronic (and real world) movement; it will soon control microdrones that could then be sent surreptitiously into your home. And unless the warrentless eletronic surveillance already being conducted by government-run-amok is brought to a halt, this new form of home invasion will also be warrantless.

DARPA, the military’s research and development arm, has announced its intent to sponsor development of a new category of these tiny monitors.

In a press release soliciting bids for manufacture of the microdrones, DARPA doesn’t define the potential target theatre, but any promise of foreign focus is illusory in a world where the Constitution’s prohibition on warrantless searches is seen as nothing more than a quaint parchment barrier to those determined to keep an eye (and ear) on every person in the world.

I will tell you precisely where I would like to see those microdrones deployed immediately after they have been developed: in the homes of every family of every military or research entity which has signed off on this concept, permanently.

Between the unholy trinity of the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA, US citizens no longer have the rights to life, liberty, or privacy, even when you are doing absolutely nothing wrong or illegal.

Remember This When the Media Tells You “The Cop Had to Shoot Him Because He Was Armed”

How is it that these guns (sometimes knives) keep showing up on people after being shot by police?

The answer: throw-away weapons.

Throw-aways, or what are sometimes called drop weapons, became very popular in Iraq. Some US troops would carry a few throw-away AKs in their vehicles.

The idea behind having throw-aways is that when you kill an innocent person, you can plant the throw-away weapon on them moments after their death.

This allows you to maintain that the victim — who will now be named a “suspect” by Statist media outlets — was armed, that you had no choice but to shoot him, and that you “feared for your life.”

Quite literally, a throw-away weapon allows you to get away with murder.

Davos Elites Enjoys the Global Depression

When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed as an assembly of business moguls, it really is more of an audition of well-heeled speculators vying for inclusion into the real power elites who make or break governments, economies and political destinies.

Using a combination of a Hollywood press agent, Madison Avenue ad firm and a media business channel the CNBC cheerleaders, the Davos clan relishes in their ill-gotten privilege and influence. The too big to fail mantra fits into the nihilism of their cult devotion of manipulated markets.

Continuity of Government Commission

It is amazing that so many citizens are eager to espouse the virtues of democracy. Multitudes of Americans love their government, no matter what it does or where it goes – the State is their mistress. Trusting in the institutions of the federal government is an article of faith, democracy protects the public, voting selects the representatives. Are you a ‘true believer’ in the system that serves the populace? Or are you one of those awful cynics that knock the good intentions of the inner circle that brings freedom and justice to the little folks? Surely, you count yourself among the chorus of the cheering crowd! Now you have your fondest dream – coming soon – to safeguard the protector of the people. It’s focus is on preserving Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court and comes from “The Continuity of Government Commission”.

Radioactive goods seized at Beirut port, airport: minister

There has been a problem lately with manufactured home products being made with radioactive waste materials. Obviously these products would trigger a wave of cancer among the people of Lebanon had they not been detected. I wonder who would think this was a good idea!

Controversial DNA startup wants to let customers create creatures

In Austen Heinz’s vision of the future, customers tinker with the genetic codes of plants and animals and even design new creatures on a computer. Then his startup, Cambrian Genomics, prints that DNA quickly, accurately and cheaply.

“Anyone in the world that has a few dollars can make a creature, and that changes the game,” Heinz said. “And that creates a whole new world.”

The 31-year-old CEO has a deadpan demeanor that can be hard to read, but he is not kidding. In a makeshift laboratory in San Francisco, his synthetic biology company uses lasers to create custom DNA for major pharmaceutical companies. Its mission, to “democratize creation” with minimal to no regulation, frightens bioethicists as deeply as it thrills Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

The capability to do this, by tinkering with the building blocks of life, with utterly no regulation, could well lead to an ELE (extinction level event.)

End Wars or They’ll End Us by Stephen Lendman

Through nonviolent resistance. A universal right. More important now than ever. Nationwide and abroad. So-called good wars don’t exist. Or wars to end all wars. Never in human history. Waging them assures more to follow. Super-weapons make them more destructive. Trillions of dollars wasted on militarism and endless wars. Down a black hole.

A review of Paul Craig Roberts’ How America Was Lost: from 9/11 to the Police/Warfare State

“Americans need to understand that they have lost their country.The rest of the world needs to recognize that Washington is not merely the most complete police state since Stalinism, but also a threat to the entire world. The hubris and arrogance of Washington, combined with Washington’s huge supply of weapons of mass destruction, make Washington the greatest threat that has ever existed to all life on the planet. Washington is the enemy of all humanity.”—Paul Craig Roberts

Today, America’s fundamental strength as the dominant superpower lies not in our military prowess nor alliances, certainly not in our cultural values, nor our now off-shored manufacturing. Principally, it lies in the fact that the dollar is the world’s reserve currency. As the BRICS and other nations begin to realize they are better off without that system, our flimsy superstructure can crash upon our heads.

GMO Lawsuit: Iowa Farmers Are Suing Syngenta

The specific type of corn, Syngenta AG’s Agrisure Viptera, had not been approved by China. The rejection of the corn led to a drop in grain and soybean futures and a three-year low for the price of corn amid at the Chicago Board of Trade amid concerns that China is going to limit not just corn but all agriculture imports. A similar drop in wheat and alfalfa prices occurred earlier in 2013 when GMO strains of both alfalfa and wheat were discovered in Washington and Oregon.

Sixteen Iowa farmers and businesses filed a GMO contamination lawsuit against Syngenta seeking both punitive and monetary damages. The biotech company which rivals Monsanto for a share of the genetically modified seed market, is based in Switzerland, but also has operations in Iowa.

Previous legal filings against Syngenta combined with the current GMO corn lawsuit now mean that the company faces court challenges from 100 commodity traders and farmers – including Archer Daniels Midland and Cargill.

It’s full of passages in which she and former Clinton White House legal office aide Linda Tripp just chew the fat, speculating about one thing or another.

More Data on Attributing the Sony Attack

Our Gotnews.com investigation into the data that has been released by the “hackers” shows that someone at Sony was copying 182GB at minimum the night of the 21st — the very same day that Sony Pictures’ head of corporate communications, Charles Sipkins, publicly resigned from a $600,000 job. This could be a coincidence but it seems unlikely. Sipkins’s former client was NewsCorp and Sipkins was officially fired by Pascal’s husband over a snub by the Hollywood Reporter.

Nearly 1 million children potentially misdiagnosed with ADHD

Nearly 1 million children in the United States are potentially misdiagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder simply because they are the youngest – and most immature – in their kindergarten class, according to new research by a Michigan State University economist.

These children are significantly more likely than their older classmates to be prescribed behavior-modifying stimulants such as Ritalin, said Todd Elder, whose study appears in the September issue of the Journal of Health Economics.

Such inappropriate treatment is particularly worrisome because of the unknown impacts of long-term stimulant use on children’s health, Elder said. It also wastes an estimated $320 million-$500 million a year on unnecessary medication – some $80 million-$90 million of it paid by Medicaid, he said.

WHEN HITLER DROPPED PEACE LEAFLETS, CHURCHILL DROPPED BOMBS!

Most students of real history, and certainly all readers of TomatoBubble.com, already know this. But did you know that Hitler went so far as to airdrop mass quantities of ‘peace leaflets’ over London? It’s true. The 4-page leaflets were English-language copies of his recent speech before the German nation, a speech which the Germans arranged to have broadcast on hundreds of radio stations across Europe. The July 19th speech was entitled: “A Last Appeal to Reason”.

Dropped over London the day after, the leaflet summarizes the injustices inflicted upon Germany after the Great War of 1914-1918, warns of the machinations of the Jewish warmongers and their henchmen, and finally closes with Hitler’s plea to call off the war.

Now, under ObamaCare, the United States is on pace to swiftly become a snitch society that would make East Germany and Soviet Russia blush.

 

Step Out Of The Car, Son – It’s Ours Now

The cadet knows he has nothing to fear but the ticket – he’s sober, responsible and the designated driver for his more tipsy friends in the backseat.

But when the police officer returns to the car, he spots one of the cadet’s pals with a rolled up joint.

Now it’s not just a ticket. Now the cadet’s car is impounded. And even though the cadet was charged with nothing but speeding, his car is sold off at auction, and the police department just got themselves a brand new copy machine.

Sound like overkill for the crime?

Meet Alexei Navalny: The U.S. State Department’s inside man for ‘regime change’ in Russia

In recent months it’s come to light that the U.S. government and allied Western powers have arrayed all of their economic, social, political, martial, and propagandizing forces against Russia and the leadership of its president, Vladimir Putin. Some of the policies, strategies and approaches towards destabilizing Russia are out in the open. Some less so. But this is where it gets most interesting. For while it was fairly easy to spot some of the aggression aimed at Russia from without, seeing it occur even more covertly from within is another story. Which brings us to some recent news.

Mass die-off of seabirds on Pacific coast called mysterious

Scientists are trying to figure out what’s behind the deaths of seabirds that have been found by the hundreds along the Pacific Coast since October.

Mass die-offs of the small, white-bellied grey birds known as Cassin’s auklets have been reported from British Columbia to San Luis Obispo, Calif.

It’s normal for some seabirds to die during harsh winter conditions, especially during big storms, but the scale of the current die-off is unusual.

Well, there is the fact that this winter is much harsher than normal, which will kill off more birds. There is that huge methane cloud over the southwestern United States and birds are very sensitive to methane, and then there is the radioactivity from Fukushima.

Top 10 major media cover-ups of 2014

  1. New scientific findings that further undermine global warming fraud

President Obama believes “global warming,” now more commonly referred to as “climate change,” is the “one issue that will define the contours of this century more dramatically than any other.”

al-gore-global-warming_s640x411Pope Francis plans to publish an encyclical on “climate change” that will inspire action at the 2015 United Nations meeting in Paris. He contends “climate change, the loss of biodiversity and deforestation are already showing their devastating effects in the great cataclysms we witness.”

But scientific findings continue to refute the widespread claim that the “debate is over” and there is a “consensus” among scientists that mankind is destroying the planet.

The Atlantic Can’t Figure Out Why U.S. Loses Wars

The main focus of the article is the by now endlessly familiar discovery that most U.S.-Americans are not in the military. The article is accompanied by another advocating a draft. The claim in the main article is that because most people are disconnected from the military they are more willing to send it off into unwinnable wars.

Nowhere does the author, James Fallows, attempt to so much as hint at what makes the wars unwinnable. He does claim that the last war that was in any way victorious for the United States was the Gulf War. But he can’t mean that it resolved a crisis. It was a war followed by bombings and sanctions and, in fact, the repeated revival of the war, ongoing and escalating even now.

Ukraine’s energy minister, Vladimir Demchyshyn, said that the accident posed no risk.

“There is no threat … there are no problems with the reactors,” Demchyshyn said at briefing, adding the accident affected the power output system and “in no way” was linked to power production itself.

Demchyshyn said that the reactor would be restarted December 5.

Sharpton secretly worked as FBI mob informant: report

Meet Al Sharpton, “Confidential Informant No. 7.”

The longtime agitator, civil-rights activist and TV host was exposed Monday as an alleged former key FBI informant whose tips helped take down some of the biggest names in New York Mafia history.

The Rev. Al launched his sensational secret life as a paid mob snitch in the mid-1980s, pressured to cooperate after being ensnared in a developing drug sting, according to a bombshell report by thesmokinggun.com.

 

How Sharpton gets paid to not cry ‘racism’ at corporations

Want to influence a casino bid? Polish your corporate image? Not be labeled a racist?

Then you need to pay Al Sharpton.

For more than a decade, corporations have shelled out thousands of dollars in donations and consulting fees to Sharpton’s National Action Network. What they get in return is the reverend’s supposed sway in the black community or, more often, his silence.

The duke has been dogged by accusations of a lack of judgment about his links with Epstein since 2011.

In June 2011 it was announced that he was stepping down from his role as the UK’s roving business ambassador.

Andrew gave up the post following the intense scrutiny he faced over his relationships with Epstein and other controversial figures.

 

Sanders: “America once led the world in building and maintaining a nationwide network of safe and reliable bridges and roads. Today, nearly a quarter of the nation’s 600,000 bridges have been designated as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete.

Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Saturday that he will introduce legislation when the new session of Congress convenes this month to authorize a $1 trillion, multi-year program to rebuild crumbling roads and bridges and invest in other infrastructure modernization projects. The investment not only would begin to address a growing backlog of badly-needed repairs, it also would put 13 million Americans to work at decent-paying jobs, according to Sanders, who will take over this month as the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee.

 

The CIA and Other Government Agencies Have Long Used Propaganda Against the American People

The United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities found in 1975 that the CIA submitted stories to the American press:

Israel attacks US

Jewish settlers threw stones at the cars of a delegation of American diplomats, who came to inspect suspected vandalism of nearby Palestinian-owned trees in the occupied West Bank, Israeli police said Friday.

The U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv and U.S. consulate in Jerusalem had no immediate comment on the incident, which occurred outside the Adei Ad settlement and incurred no casualties. Washington has been vocal in its disapproval of Israeli settlement policy, though such attacks against the U.S. are rare in Israel.

Sexual Violence, Women’s Bodies, and Israeli Settler Colonialism

They not only invaded our home, took over our space, and evicted us—they even arrested me and took me to the Maskubya—the police station. I was put in room number four, alone, for a long time. Then, a big and tall man, a police officer, entered the interrogation room. I was alone, and started shivering from fear as he closed the door, started moving things around in the room and examining me from head to toe. I was terrorized, and my heart was beating so fast. His eyes penetrated my body, as he was opening the drawers looking for something. Then, he left the room and came back five minutes later holding a box. He pulled out a pair of blue plastic gloves, and put one on each of his hands, while looking at me and saying “…Come here…” I must tell you that I was terrorized when they invaded the house and evicted us. I was extremely anxious when they arrested my son.

 

CIA joins social media, is immediately trolled

The CIA admitted as far back as 2011 that its agents and employees regularly scan social media to spy on intelligence targets. It already had multiple accounts on Flickr and YouTube, but only debuted on Twitter Friday because it had spent months lobbying Twitter to stop someone else who was already using the @CIA handle.

 

UK activists sue Israel over raid on Gaza-bound flotilla

A group of British activists has filed a lawsuit against Israeli troops over a 2010 attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that left 10 Turkish activists dead.

Lawyers of the activists have asked Scotland Yard to open a probe into the incident to find whether Israeli special forces committed war crimes.

One of the dead was an American citizen.

Israel murdered an AMERICAN CITIZEN in international waters, for taking their picture! A 19-year old boy from New York carrying a US Passport. Indeed Furkan Dogan’s American citizenship is in less dispute than that of Barack Hussein Obama!

Back in 1941, there was this foreign nation, Japan, which was illegally occupying other peoples’ lands in China and Indonesia.

There were Americans in close proximity to that foreign nation, in the then-territory of Hawaii, and even though the Americans had not actually done much of anything, that foreign nation decided it had the right to attack and kill Americans just on the off chance that somewhere down the road, they might be in inconvenience.

Thus came about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Now, just for a moment imagine that instead of declaring immediate war on those who attacked Americans, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had rushed over to the League of Nations to explain why Japan’s attack on Americans was really no big deal, and that Japan had good reason to attack and kill Americans! Imagine if Roosevelt, instead of the “Day of Infamy” speech, had made countless excuses why Japan was perfectly right to attack and kill Americans. Imagine that the US Congress, instead of voting war against the nation that attacked Americans decided to punish those who criticized the nation that attacked Americans?

Quite an amazing fantasy isn’t it? Yet this is exactly what we have seen the present government do over the last few years ever since Israel’s attack on the aid flotilla!

Israel, citing grounds of national security, occupies the lands of Palestine, just as Japan, citing national security, occupied China. The Americans in the aid flotilla had not actually done anything to threaten Israel, just like the Americans sitting in Pearl Harbor had done nothing to threaten Japan.

1941 Japan attacks Americans in the middle of an ocean and the US goes to war against Japan.

2010 Israel attacks Americans in the middle of a sea and the US Government protects the attacker.

In 1904, American businessman Ion Perdicaris was taken prisoner by Mulai Raisuli. Now, from Raisuli’s point of view, he had good reason to take Perdicaris prisoner as Raisuli was fighting against foreign occupation of his homeland. Even Perdicaris conceded that Raisuli was acting from what Perdicaris considered justifiable motives.

But President Roosevelt did not view the affair from Raisuli’s point of view. He viewed it from the point of view of a President of the United States. Under the slogan “Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead!” Roosevelt sent 7 US Battleships with orders to destroy Morroco if Perdicaris was not released. Perdicaris was sent home.

Those men were real Presidents; Presidents who understood that their job as commander in chief is to protect America and Americans first and foremost, and to hell with the other guys’ point of view; real Presidents which when compared to, Obama is but a thin and venal wisp of shadow.

Palestinians criticise Israeli decision to withhold tax

Israel is withholding $127 million (€106 million) in tax revenue it collects for the Palestinian Authority in response to its move last week to join the International Criminal Court, further escalating tensions with a step that could have repercussions for both sides.

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said that the Israeli move could lead to the disintegration of the 20-year-old authority because it would be unable to pay government workers or provide public services. He promised to retaliate by expediting the petitions to join the court and other international agencies and said Israel “will be held accountable for everything.”

 

‘US pursuing political agenda, not justice, sanctioning N.Korea over Sony hack’

There is no hard evidence for the United States’ claims that the North Korea was behind the hack on Sony. In fact, the evidence seems to point in a very different direction. Reports in US and global media say experts taking part in the investigation essentially rule out North Korea’s participation. They say the evidence simply isn’t there to point that finger.

Moreover, those very same experts point out that due to the complexity of the cyberattack it is not quite possible to determine who was behind it in mere 48 or 72 hours as was the case with the US government. Rather than seeing the evidence and drawing conclusions from that, it seems that Washington is pursuing a political agenda and using this issue to further that agenda.

 

Computer glitch prevents US’ most advanced F-35 fighter jet from firing until 2019 – report

The Pentagon’s fighter jet F-35 may not be fully operational until 2019 due to a newly discovered computer glitch. The $400 billion ultra-sophisticated jet, the most expensive in US history, was expected to enter service in 2015.

F-35 is the fifth generation combat aircraft which is designed in three variations for US Air Force, Navy and Marines to replace out of date aircraft. It was planned to join the Marines in 2015 and Air Force in 2016.

It is planned to replace the Air Force’s A-10 Warthog ground attack plane and Lockheed F-16 multirole fighter, the Navy instead of Boeing F/A-18 Hornet carrier-based fighter, and the Marines instead of Boeing AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet.

However, the most awaited plane’s main weapon will not be able to fire due to a computer glitch. The four-barreled rotary cannon for the Air Force version of the F-35 cannot function until new software is elaborated, despite jet scheduled to join the army this year.

‘Software disaster’: Pentagon never even planned F-35’s gun to shoot until 2019

RT: The F-35 fighter jet has been strongly criticized. Is that warranted do you think?

Pierre Sprey: The F-35 is in serious trouble, the latest is over the gun system. It is being reported that is due to a computer glitch – that is a severe understatement.

What it is really due to is two things: one, the disaster of ridiculously over-complex computer software system; and two, the fact that the gun itself is mainly for the purpose of close support and close in the air combat and the air force does not think that either of those are important.

That was the same tactical mistake they made with the F-4, which was originally built without an air-to-air cannon in the expectation that all air combat would use missiles. As the kill ratio dropped from 12 to 1 down to 3 to 1 during Vietnam, an underbelly gun pod was quickly added to the F-4.

Libya terror suspect Anas al-Liby dies before US trial

An alleged al-Qaeda leader has died just days before going on trial in New York over the 1998 US embassy attacks in Africa.

Abu Anas al-Liby, 50, died in hospital on Friday, his wife and lawyers say. He is reported to have had liver cancer.

Mr Liby was seized in a US raid in Tripoli in October 2013.

He was to stand trial on 12 January over the 1998 embassy attacks, which killed more than 220 people in Kenya and Tanzania.

Mr Liby, whose real name was Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, previously pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges.

His wife, Um Abdullah, accused the US government on Saturday of “kidnapping, mistreating and killing an innocent man,” according to the Associated Press news agency.

As a person who no longer has the luxury of believing in “coincidence, I find the timing of this man’s death…interesting.

Not that he could not have died from complications of his cancer surgery, but his dying right before his trial began?!?

I have to wonder if what he knew, and was willing to state in his own defense, might have somehow compromised the US government, and big-time.

How Many of These Secret Surveillance Programs Do you Know About?

According to various publications in the American and foreign media, the United States has created a global system of cyber espionage that allows the interception and processing of personal data around the globe in violation of fundamental human rights. Tapped phones, intercepted short messages, supervised discussions in social networks and stolen emails – this is the ugly reality we are living in. The NSA and other units of the United States Intelligence Community are more than capable of breaching any mobile operating system, be it iOS, Android or BlackBerry OS.

Washington and its agencies are literally spending billions of taxpayer dollars annually under the convenient guise of the “war on terror”, which in fact turns out to be a hidden war against its own citizens, now deprived of basic human rights. But what makes it even worse is that it’s pushing its satellite countries to launch an all-out offensive against the civil liberties of Europe and beyond.

The alleged “war on terror” is simply a cover for a continuing surveillance war against Americans.

We have moved so quickly from “the land of the free…and the home of the brave” to the “land of the cowed…and the home of the surveilled” quickly enough to make my head spin.

Prince Andrew named in US lawsuit over underage sex claims

A woman who claims that an American investment banker loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave” has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew.

The accusation against the Duke of York is contained in a motion filed in a Florida court this week in connection with a long-running lawsuit brought by women who say they were exploited by Jeffrey Epstein, a multi-millionaire convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl after a plea deal.

The Prince’s lawyers are already claiming that the Prince is protected from prosecution by Epstein’s prosecution deal, which blocks prosecution of all “co-conspirators”, meaning the rich and powerful Epstein was pimping the girls to.

But in the court of world opinion, this is looking really bad for the elites (and really good for the masses, who need to face up to the reality of what kind of sub-humans rule them).

The above is a photograph of Prince Andrew. The young woman he has his arm around is identified as Virginia Roberts, who has come forward as Jane Doe #3 in the lawsuit. Virginia’s presence at Epstein’s “events” is confirmed by aircraft records and court documents.

The Americans was created by Joe Weisberg, a former CIA agent. And since he knows all kinds of stuff that the CIA would like to keep secret, they’ve reserved the right to censor anything they don’t like on the show.

A New IRS Horror Story That Makes Past Scandals Pale In Comparison

The practice has resulted in emptying the bank account of an innocent restaurant owner and an army sergeant in Virginia who was saving money for his daughter’s college education.

Then there was the retail business whose insurance only covered $10,000 in the event of a lost or stolen sum of money. As a result, the owner, who was cautious about keeping too much cash on site, was careful to send employees to make bank deposits throughout the day in amounts less than $10,000 so he could rely on his insurance policy.

In each of these cases, and many others, the IRS, without notice or so much as a criminal complaint or indictment, swooped in and emptied the bank accounts of these completely legitimate people and businesses.

The United States had abandoned the principle of innocent until proven guilty and returned to the Napoleonic Code, in which one is presumed guilty until innocence can be proven.

This is a rebuttal addressed to His Eminence Timothy Michael Dolan Archbishop of the Archdiocese of New York, by a Catholic civil rights advocate. Archbishop Dolan recently penned a message of condolence entitled ‘Peace Officers’ for the two slain NYPD police officers, and I thought it deserved a response. In his letter, Dolan claimed
“police officers are on our side” and “we owe them our deep respect and gratitude.” He added that “they are unflagging in their attempts at reform and improvement. They humbly admit shortcomings, and seem to welcome criticism and review, as long as its offered civilly and fairly… all our devoted police force, are truly peace officers.”

To top it off, Dolan said “While a shrill but tiny minority might try to malign them as less than agents of peace and justice, our valiant police force are protectors of the sacredness of human life and the dignity of the human person.”
THAT is the part that required me to write this open letter to him.

Disturbing new allegations surfaced this week concerning a handful of rich and powerful men, each accused of abusing underage girls described in court filings as “sex slaves.” According to some online activists, however, the recent news is only the scab atop a festering wound of criminal sexual activity. The high-profile dossier revealed this week includes Britain’s Prince Andrew and Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz, among others. The accusations are tied to an established lawsuit brought by women who claim that they were sexually abused as minors by American investment banker Jeffrey Epstein, who in 2008 was convicted of soliciting sex from underage girls.

 

Iraq death toll doubles to 15,538 in 2014, the worst in seven years, says government

Violence in Iraq caused the deaths of more than 15,000 civilians and security personnel in 2014, government figures show, making it one of the deadliest years since the 2003 US-led invasion. Last year’s toll of 15,538 was more than double the 6,522 people killed in 2013. It was the worst in seven years, the Iraqi government said, almost reaching the toll of 17,956 during the height of Sunni-Shiite sectarian killings in 2007.

Dershowitz named in lawsuit alleging abuse of underage sex slave

? ? ? ? ?

A federal lawsuit in Florida accuses Alan Dershowitz, the famed advocate for Israel, of sexually abusing a minor. Dershowitz has denied the charges and vowed to hit back.

The allegations come in a lawsuit by four women against the federal government for violating the rights of crime victims when it made a plea deal in 2008 with Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious financier, over allegations of sexual abuse of minors. Epstein ended up spending more than a year in prison.

The suit says that Dershowitz routinely had sexual relations with Epstein’s “sex slave” at a time when she was under 18 years old, and before she escaped Epstein. The JTA says that Dershowitz denies the charges:

Alan Dershowitz declared “totally, unequivocally and completely false” allegations that he enjoyed sexual services from a minor employed by a friend and client.

 

US Debt Soars By $100 Billion On Last Day Of 2014, Hits Record $18.14 Trillion

Claim: Video of ‘bighearted’ homeless man a ‘scam’

Americans opened their wallets to the man when he purportedly took the donation and distributed the food to strangers. The homeless man, who is identified as “Thomas” in the video, was said to be given a hot Christmas Eve dinner, a warm hotel room and a makeover.

Meanwhile, donations poured in to help him get back on his feet. A fundraising campaign has collected more than $135,000. The YouTube video went viral, with more than 30 million hits.

The New York Daily News reported, “Viewers moved by the video to donate more than $130,000 to its ‘homeless’ star were blindsided upon learning he’s not down on his luck, but stands to inherit $150,000 from his parents’ estate.”

A man named Kevin Nickel told the Post that the vagrant is actually his brother, Kenny.

“This is a scam,” he said.

Nickel told CBS Los Angeles, “He’s sitting on money. He’s sitting on an estate.

I will admit I am a bit pissed off at this. I try to live my life as honestly as I can and frankly, while I am not homeless, it is only by a thin line. $135,000 would put Claire and I back on our feet, pay the medical bills NOT paid for by our Obamacare compliant health insurance, clear up our debts, modernize all the computers that ruin WRH and the radio show, and still have enough left over to pay for our move back to the mainland.

The Year US-led Capitalism Became Exposed as Root of Global Conflict

Historians may look back on 2014 as a defining watershed in geopolitical events, the year when the limit of American power was exposed as a waning entity and the contemporary root of global conflict.

The expansion of the US-led NATO alliance towards Russian territory is the corollary. War, as always, seems the last redoubt of the scoundrel.

A century ago, the powers-that-be could get away with reckless warmongering because their monopoly control of information and propaganda was unassailable.

In a new age of global communications and ever-rising alternative channels of information, the tendency of conflict inherent in Western powers may still be a danger – but it is being exposed for all to see. In the year ahead the battle for truth, justice and peace is very much on… and winnable.

The challenge is to fully expose, at a global level of awareness, the root cause of conflict that has emerged as evident over the past year – US-led western capitalism.

 

US weapons airdrop goes straight to ISIS….again!

The shipments included more than 160 military cargo flights by Jordanian, Saudi and Qatari military cargo planes landing at Esenboga Airport near Ankara and other Turkish and Jordanian airports. An effort to arm al-Nusra – now fully merged with ISIS – and other jihadist groups has been coordinated by American intelligence.

“What is important is that the US sends these weapons to only those that cooperate with the Pentagon and this indicates that the US plays a role in arming the ISIL.”

The London-based organization Conflict Armament Research previously reported that ISIS fighters are using “significant quantities” of arms including M16 assault rifles marked “property of the US government.”

Now Legal, Declassified Documents Reveal How CIA “Develop” Covert Propaganda “Themes to Push ‘Hot Buttons’ of Americans”

We are continually lied to and deceived by the mass media and our government institutions. Professionally-crafted propaganda techniques to frame the story and, in many cases, to advance totally fabricated events, have been used to goad on the population and gain support for the State, even at the expense of what is best for the people.

The US government does not have a legal right to lie to its people.

And if you want a recent example of this, just take a look at Obama’s declared intention to punish North Korea with sanctions about the Sony data breach, which North Korea did not do.

But North Korea was making overtures to South Korea about meeting, at a very high level, to replace the armistice, well over 60 years old this year, with a real peace treaty; and of course, Obama couldn’t stand to see that happen, because it would ruin his chances of starting his war against North Korea as a back door to a war with China, because both China’s currency and military are on the ascendent.

Political Crisis in Bahrain: Major Protests Following Arrest of Opposition Movement Leader

The Secretary General of Al Wefaq Society was arrested on Monday 29th December and remained in custody for one week. He had been summoned by the Alkhalifa torturers and questioned for two days before the dictator decided to exact revenge from him by detaining him for one week. Sheikh Salman is known for his soft language and tone, and has steered Al Wefaq within the Alkhalifa laws. But the tyrant has been enraged by the decision of the political societies led by Al Wefaq to boycott the regime’s hollow elections in November. It was a strong slap on his face because it showed the lack of popular support or legitimacy to his rule. The Alkhalifa and their Saudi and British backers had hoped that those elections would provide a plausible exit from the political crisis that has engulfed the country since the eruption of the 14th February Revolution.

You didn’t need a crystal ball to see this coming, over the last several years.

In 2015, we may well see peaceful movements for change in Bahrain turn violent.

And Saudi Arabia, with a projected budget deficit of $38.6 billion for this year, may not have the money to send in Saudi troops to put down demonstrations, as it did a couple of years ago.

The US Navy’s 5th Fleet calls Bahrain its home. So what will the Al Khalifa monarchy ask the US government to do, I wonder, and to what degree will the the US government comply in suppressing unrest in order to keep the Navy’s Fifth Fleet there?!?

It will be curious to see how this unfolds.

 

Catastrophe at Ukraine’s Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant?

The first thing most people don’t realize is that geiger counters are location sensitive. They are calibrated against the background radiation for a specific location. This means that if you take a geiger counter and move just a mile away, the background radiation itself could be different and the measurement inaccurate. Known background radiation is the Zero point on a calibrated geiger counter.

Second and as important is that all sensitive measurement tools need to be calibrated and certified to be useful. Sensitive tools go out of calibration by themselves over time. After Fukushima, a new normal needs to be considered.

Poroshenko’s government needs to come as clean as humanly possible about the facts on the ground here; lives are at stake, not only those of Ukrainians, but also those of Europeans.

Expert help needs to be asked for, and granted, in dealing with the realities here, to make sure that this is not a huge catastrophe in the making.

Israeli soldiers later entered the area and opened fire as well, hitting three men.

Russia Is Building a Train That Will Zip From Moscow to Beijing In Just 48 Hours

According to Romanian website Glasul, the Kremlin has awarded the project to China Railway High-speed (CRH), a subsidiary of the state-controlled China Railway (CR), which is working in a joint-venture with the local firm Uralvagonzavod. CR is famous in the train industry for operating the world’s only magnetic levitation train in an urban area, the Shangai monorail.

Florida Cop Caught Stealing from Walmart

Authorities in Coral Springs, Fla., caught one of their own allegedly stealing from Walmart … and the Broward Sheriff’s Office detention deputy didn’t even bother taking off his uniform to do it. A BSO rep says Theodore Parrish turned himself in this week after he was spotted on surveillance video using the store’s self-checkout lanes—and allegedly putting some of the items into his shopping cart without actually paying for them. Police say he stole $176.14 on five separate occasions; during the last two, he was wearing his BSO uniform. He now faces a charge of petit theft.

Israeli forces fired down the road leading from the checkpoint to the schools, filling the street adjacent to the schools with a choking cloud of gas and preventing Palestinians walking through the checkpoint from continuing down the street. As it is exam season in al-Khalil’s schools, children were attempting to reach school between seven and eight am and leaving again between nine thirty and eleven. Israeli military forces kept up a sporadic barrage of fire from the time some children were still walking to school until after school finished, forcing anyone traveling in either direction to brave whistling tear gas canisters and the dizzying smoke which still lingered even after the shooting had halted.

Oceanfront views, 24-hour doorman, heated pool, and perhaps best of all, a “private tunnel to the beach.” This $3 million Palm Beach, Florida penthouse could be yours, but unfortunately it isn’t because this prize has already been claimed by a former high-level U.S. official who helped pave the way for the over decade-long “war on terror,” which has been a near complete catastrophe.

Iraq is aflame, the Islamic State is on the rampage, the situation in Afghanistan worsens by the day, and thousands of Americans—and many more Iraqis and Afghans—have died during the post-9/11 conflicts. Meanwhile, the combined cost of the “war on terror” comes to an estimated $1.6 trillion.

All these wars are ultimately about private corporate – and individual – profits.

And one guy missed here, who should definitely be high on the page of war profiteers is Michael Chertoff. The companies his clients represent are making beacoup bucks in the industrial security sector, to the tune of $118 million in 2011 that the US government gave Rapiscan for equipment.

New Claims Prince Andrew Asked U.S. Prosecutors To Go Easy On Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Over Human Trafficking Claims

Britain’s Prince Andrew allegedly lobbied the U.S. government to go easy on an American billionaire the FBI was investigating for holding sex slaves he allegedly shared with the prince and “many other powerful men,” according to claims in a court document obtained by RadarOnline.com.

Four women who allege they were Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slaves are suing the federal prosecutors for not conferring with them before reaching “a secret non-prosecution agreement” with the Wall Street money manager.

Instead of possible life sentences over human trafficking allegations, which included claims he shared teen sex slaves with his rich and powerful friends, Epstein was allowed to plead guilty to a far lesser state sex charge that sent him to a Florida prison for just 13 months.

Dozens Killed as US Escalates Strikes Against ISIS in Syria

Exact death tolls are unclear, but dozens of people were reported killed today as the US escalated its airstrikes against the ISIS capital of Raqqa and the contested city of Kobani.

The US launches daily airstrikes in both places, of course, but reports today are that the number of attacks are the highest since before December 24, when a Jordanian pilot involved in the air war was shot down and captured.

Raqqa is the de facto capital city of the ISIS caliphate, and indeed ISIS controls materially the entire Raqqa Province. In Kobani, ISIS is continuing to fight against Kurdish militias which hold much of the cit

US Slaps Iran With New Sanctions Unrelated to Nuclear Program: US Treasury

“Although we do not support the imposition of any new nuclear-related sanctions while negotiations are ongoing, throughout the JPOA [Joint Plan of Action] period we have made clear, by word and deed, that we will continue to enforce our existing sanctions,” Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at US Treasury David Cohen said.

Five individuals and one entity have been subjected to new sanctions for assisting the Iranian government in purchasing or acquiring US banknotes. Two Iranian companies, Abyssec and Douran Software Technologies, were targeted for allegedly helping Tehran dodge US sanctions and supporting human rights-related abusers.

That last statement is really rich: “…and supporting human rights abusers.”

Undersecretary Cohen might well have swallowed those words, before uttering them in public, in light of the highly redacted summary of the US government’s report on torture against prisoners of war, which has been recently revealed to not only US citizens, but also to the world.

Between this, and the Senate’s talking about laying down more sanctions against Iran with an alleged “veto proof” majority, it appears that this country is doing everything in its power to insure that Iran walks away from negotiations, then claim it’s Iran’s fault for leaving.

That clears the way for a US/Israeli attack against it, which is precisely the outcome Israel wants.

Or better yet, from Tel Aviv’s perspective, make it a completely an American campaign, so that no members of the IDF get killed, or maimed for life.

Russian leadership, both diplomatic and military, have very bluntly stated that they will consider any attack against Iran to be an attack on the interests of Russia.

I would like to politely point out to those precious few adults in the room in the bowels of power in DC, that the US military does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes a military scenario here so scarily dangerous.

And to those in Tel Aviv advocating for such a scenario, I would strongly caution you to rethink. Should Iran be attacked, Hezbullah may very well attack Israel from the north,, and the casualty figures may be catastrophically higher than what your military planners have told you.

The P5+1 talks are the world’s best bet for stabilizing the region. The Iranian leadership may be many things, but stupid is not one of them.Even dealing with the hardline reactionaries, the current government, I believe, truly wants to see these negotiations succeed.

Sabotaging these talks would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do right now; and yet, it appears that this is precisely what these actions are engineered to do.

He [Yanukovych] was the legitimate President of Ukraine until he suddenly wasn’t on February 22 of this year.” The outspoken director then added, “the truth is not being aired in the West… many believe foreign elements were introduced by pro-Western factions with CIA fingerprints on it.”

I wonder if Oliver needs a good Visual Effects supervisor. :)

It’s time to abolish the CIA

After a trial run of 67 years, the agency has proven a sorcerer’s apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind secrecy in the belief that the rest of us are too stupid or naive to judge what risks to accept to preserve liberty and the rule of law. The CIA has made Americans less safe.

The last President to try to curb the CIA was John F. Kennedy, and the head of the CIA that he fired, Allen Dulles, was appointed to the Warren Commission to “investigate” his murder.

USA instructs Russian Central Bank how to strangle Russian economy

“In other words, Russia is not even a ruble country de jure. Russia is a dollar country. The Russian ruble takes a small share in the country. The whole segment of investment is based on dollars and euros. The Constitution protects that, and the Central Bank of the country should keep the rate. Now, we have the situation when the Central Bank does not abide by the Constitution, because it raised the key rate and reduced the ruble rate. From the point of view of the Constitution, the Central Bank is obliged to keep the rate. The Central Bank violated the Constitution and Putin’s numerous instructions, but it was an absolutely logical move. The charter of the Central Bank does not contain a word about the Russian economy. It should not support the Russian economy. The law says that the Central Bank is governed by international agreements. The bank signs agreements that the Ministry of Justice does not even register. The administration of the Russian Central Bank is based outside Russia.

White House announces sanctions against N. Korea

US President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Friday authorizing the imposition of new sanctions against certain North Korean entities in the wake of the recent Sony hack the White House continues to blame on Pyongyang.

There is zero evidence that north Korea had anything to do with the SONY hack and quite a bit of evidence it was an internal hack by a disgruntled employee. This is Obama’s version of Saddam’s nuclear weapons; a made up threat to provoke another nation into war.

 

‘It was us': CIA ‘fesses up on UFO sightings in 1950-60s

The Central Intelligence Agency has admitted that it was responsible for at least half of reported UFO sightings in the middle of the last century due to its secret, high-altitude reconnaissance flights.

The 1950s and ’60s was an intense period when a number of Americans reported UFO sightings and alien visitations. These sensational events lent cinematic credence to a number of Hollywood space blockbusters, including Steven Spielberg’s “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “ET,” and George Lucas’s “Star Wars.”

Now it appears the unidentified flying objects were more fact than fantasy, while the mind behind them was not quite alien.

 

THIS WEEK IN SEX ABUSE OF CHILDREN BY PEDOPHILE CATHOLIC PRIESTS [JANUARY 3, 2015]

Russia Says Ukrainian Nazis Pay Blackwater for Training

The Russian Government’s Tass ‘news’ agency is alleging that “The US private military company Academi (formerly known as Blackwater) … has confirmed to the Kiev authorities its readiness to start training an experimental battalion of 550 men as of January at the request of Ukraine’s General Staff,” according to an unnamed source, which source is probably one of the few remaining anti-nazi bureaucrats still remaining in the Ukrainian Government. The reported price of this Blackwater (a.k.a. “Xe,” a.k.a. “Academi”) training contract is $3.5 million.

Why is it illegal for communities to protect themselves from harm?

The supposed answer to that question is the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, Article 6, paragraph 2:

“This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

By inference, the individual states declare their own supremacy when local communities try to nullify or avoid state statutes.

Keep in mind that the US Constitution enumerates powers granted to the federal government, and reserves all other powers for the states or the people. But this restraint has been trampled on so many times it’s barely visible under the tonnage of federal law and regulation.

Israeli settlers attack US consulate convoy in the West Bank (Updated)

On Friday, American security personnel accompanying staff from the United States Consulate in Jerusalem drew their weapons on violent Israeli settlers who attacked a two vehicle U.S. convoy outside the Palestinian town of Turmusaya in the West Bank. Consulate staff were investigating a incident which took place on private Palestinian land on the first night of 2015 when six thousand recently planted olive saplings were uprooted, and dozens of old olive trees were destroyed by violent Jewish settlers from an illegal outpost, Adei Ad, near Turmusaya.

 

America stabs its Arab allies in the back

The US-Arab alliance is one of the strangest and most interesting in the world, perhaps even in history. It is certainly the most one-sided, whereby America takes everything from its Arab allies and gives them nothing in return. The US attitude is disrespectful, untactful and inflexible. Washington gives Arab governments nothing to work with and nothing to give to their people, not even a fig leaf for appearances’ sake.

The most recent example of this disrespect by the US was its open contempt for its Arab allies when it voted against the draft UN Security Council resolution to end the Israeli occupation of part of the occupied Palestinian territories. This resolution is based on what is known as “international legitimacy” despite the fact that the Palestinians went to the Security Council stripped of all their historical rights. However, this did not help them or gain the acceptance of Washington, which seems to disregard the Palestinians in particular and the Arabs in general.

What those Arab oil nations ought to do is all at once agree to sell their oil for the Ruble and the Yuan.

PRINCE ANDREW & JEFFREY EPSTEIN: Can the Palace really make the denial stick?

Prince Andrew’s flat and emphatic denial of any complicity in abuse of a minor in 2001 suggests just how seriously Buckingham Palace is taking the resurfacing allegations about his sex life.

I first posted on this affair just over two years ago. The circumstantial and affidavit evidence now available in a new Court case accusing Jeffrey Epstein of pimping minors for the sexual gratification of himself and others is nothing more than consistent with the charges that sent him to jail four years ago. What remains a mystery wrapped up in socialite privilege is how Epstein managed to spend just 13 months in the poky, when trafficking charges such as those usually carry 10-20 year sentence guidance in US Courts.

Iran denies ‘tentative uranium agreement’ with US

Washington and Tehran came a step closer to agreeing on shipping part of Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile to Russia, AP reported on Friday, citing diplomatic sources. However, Iran denied that any such agreement took place.

According to two diplomatic sources who spoke to the Associated Press, the December round of nuclear talks produced a “catalogue of areas of potential accord”, while outlining differing approaches to remaining stick points.

One of the breakthroughs, sources say, comes as Iran allegedly “tentatively agreed” to transport a large portion of its uranium stockpile to Russia for conversion into reactor fuel.

However, Iran’s Foreign Ministry has denied reports that it has agreed with the US on the list of nuclear materials to be delivered to Russia. On Friday, Iran’s foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said “no agreement on any nuclear topic” had taken place.

Protesters in Egypt hold fresh rallies

As the anniversary of the January 2011 revolution draws closer, the anti coup alliance led by the Muslim brotherhood has called for fresh week long protests dubbed “together to liberate and purge”.

Following the Friday prayers, thousands of protesters held rallies in Cairo and several other cities, calling for the ouster of President Abdul Fatah el Sisi and demanding an immediate end to military rule.

Security forces attacked protesters in Hadaeq Helwan district south of the capital Cairo. A protester was killed in the scuffles.
Protesters also chanted anti Sisi slogans and called on all Egyptians to put their differences aside, and to stand against those who protesters called the “coup orchestrators”.

 

One killed in Gaza by Egypt border guards: Sources

At least one Palestinian has been killed in the frontier town of Rafah in the besieged Gaza Strip by Egyptian soldiers firing from across the border, sources say.

“A Palestinian citizen, aged 23, was killed by Egyptian army fire on the Egyptian-Palestinian border and the security agencies are investigating the incident to find out the motives,” Gaza’s Interior Ministry spokesman Iyad al-Bazm said in a message on his Facebook page on Friday.

The Egyptian forces shot the unnamed man “in the back and the bullet settled in the heart. He died on the spot,” Gaza’s emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

On Tuesday, Egyptian authorities said they would double the width of a security buffer zone currently under construction along the Gaza border, claiming that the move will prevent Gazans from entering Egypt.

 

The Forgotten Giant Arrows that Guide you Across America

So what if there were no high-tech GPS devices in the 1920s? Back then the US Postal Service invented its own navigation system – giant concrete arrows that pointed the way to Air Mail pilots. When America’s first Transcontinental Air Mail route opened in 1920, pilots faced difficulties in navigating the coast-to-coast route over the American Midwest. This was a time when radar and other modern flight planning implements were yet to be invented.

Israeli forces attack protesters in West Bank

Israeli forces have attacked Palestinian demonstrators protesting against the ongoing Israeli settlement building and the separation wall in the occupied territories.

New Study Finds GMO Soy Toxic to Kidneys, Liver and Reproduction

In North America, approximately 75 to 89% of the soy beans grown are genetically modified (GM). One may not realize it, but this is concerning news – especially because recent research found that GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and more.

There isn’t just one smoking gun anymore pointing at GMO toxicology. There is now an entire arsenal of scientific research proving that genetically modified organisms adversely affect the body. In yet another new study conducted by Egyptian researchers, rats given GM soy were found to have deadly amounts of toxicity in their kidneys, liver, testes, sperm, blood and even DNA.

Among these offenses is murder, forcible deportation or transfer of members of a group, torture, persecution of Palestinians (an “identifiable group”) and “the crime of Apartheid.”

Salacious new chapter in Florida billionaire’s sex scandal

For years, the story of South Florida billionaire money manager Jeffrey Epstein — involving allegations of human trafficking, an international underage sex ring, a Palm Beach mansion, a private island in the Caribbean, and an FBI investigation — has been tabloid fodder in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Now, Fort Lauderdale lawyer Brad Edwards is helping to write a new chapter in this murky and sordid tale. Representing two alleged victims identified only as Jane Doe #3 and Jane Doe #4, Edwards filed a motion in U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach that alleges well-known criminal defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, were involved in Epstein’s international sex ring.

GENETICALLY MODIFIED GENES ON RICE CAN NOW BE SEEN IN HUMAN BLOOD AND ORGANS

It’s not earth-shattering news: genetically modified foods carry huge risks for humans. The newest information, however, shows that there are larger risks than ever before seen. These risks affect us on a much deeper level than previously thought. Researchers at the Nanjing University in China have shown that small pieces of ribonucleic acid (RNA) of rice can be seen in the organs and blood of the humans that eat the rice. The RNA is actually microRNA (miRNA). It is incredibly small, but plays a role in such diseases as Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Diabetes. MiRNA usually works to turn off or down the effects of certain genes. The Chinese researchers found the rice miRNA binding to receptors in the liver. The miRNA then affect how the body takes cholesterol from the blood.

Let’s Talk About Sex, Baby

Let’s keep in mind that the first recorded sex slave–at least as far as the history of Western Civilization is concerned–was Sarah, the wife of Abraham. According to the ordeal as described in the bible, TWICE the father of Judaism sold his wife into prostitution for his own personal enrichment. Giving credence to that old saying concerning an apple not falling far from the tree we have Abraham’s son Isaac who–following in his father’s footsteps–attempted the same thing with his wife Rebecca. A few chapters later we see Lott, Abraham’s nephew, giving away his two virgin daughters to a group of sex maniacs, encouraging them to gang-rape his own daughters, saying “abuse them as you see fit”. Later, these same daughters, no doubt having lost their minds after being handed over by their own father and “abused” the entire night in exactly the fashion he intimated, engage in incestuous relations with him.

Apple facing lawsuit over shrinking iPhone and iPad storage following iOS 8 update

Apple is facing a lawsuit over the amount of space that the iOS 8 update takes up on iPhone, iPads, and iPods.

The complaint, filed in California by Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara, claims that the 16GB iPhones and iPads they purchased had less than the stated amount of usable space, and that this was further reduced after upgrading his iPhone 5S from iOS 7 to iOS 8.

The complaint claims that iOS 8 can occupy more than 23 percent of the storage available on some devices, and further goes on to claim that upgrading devices from iOS 7 to 8 can cause users to lose a further 1.3GB of storage.

UN Seeks to Criminalize Free Speech, Citing “Human Rights”

Under the guise of advancing what the United Nations refers to as “human rights,” the dictator-dominated global body is waging a full-blown assault on free-speech rights by pressuring governments to criminalize so-called “hate speech.” Indeed, working alongside radical government-funded activist groups and anti-liberty politicians around the world, the UN and other totalitarian-minded forces have now reached the point where they openly claim that what they call “international law” actually requires governments to ban speech and organizations they disapprove of. Critics, though, are fighting back in an effort to protect freedom of speech — among the most fundamental of all real rights.

Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz named in US lawsuit over underage sex allegations

British press reports today that a woman claims that Jewish banker Jeffrey Epstein loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave.” The woman has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew and Alan Dershowitz.

The woman, who filed the motion anonymously, alleges that between 1999 and 2002 she was repeatedly sexually abused by Epstein who, she also alleges, loaned her out to rich and influential men around the world.

The British press is obviously interested in developments related to prince Andrew. But I am actually curious to hear what the ethnic cleansing enthusiast Alan Dershowitz has to say in his defence.

Even though the Joint Strike Fighter, or F-35, is supposed to join frontline U.S. Marine Corps fighter squadrons next year and Air Force units in 2016, the jet’s software does not yet have the ability to shoot its 25mm cannon. But even when the jet will be able to shoot its gun, the F-35 barely carries enough ammunition to make the weapon useful.

Why is it Illegal to Buy Food From Your Neighbors?

Virginians who try to sell homemade food from their kitchens are feeling the heat from state and local inspectors.

“I have to turn down my neighbors when they ask if they can buy pesto I make from my own basil plants,” says Bernadette Barber, a farmer in Lancaster, Va.
And this isn’t just a rural phenomenon.

In Arlington, government inspectors shut down a home-based soup maker, even though no customer complaints had been registered. Others have encountered similar fates, stripping them of needed income.

CAN YOU PICTURE A MAP OF THE MIDDLE EAST WITHOUT ISRAEL ON IT?

Collins Bartholomew, a map-publishing company that is a subsidiary of HarperCollins, said that including Israel in its “Collins Primary Geography Atlas For The Middle East” would have been “unacceptable” to their customers in the Gulf and that leaving Israel off the maps incorporated “local preferences.”

While Israel is not demarcated on the maps, the West Bank is clearly labeled.

I had originally assumed this was a simple mistake, due to Israel’s small size relative to the scale of the map. But this admission that HarperCollins intentionally altered the maps to please certain customers calls into the question the validity of every map they produce.

Media Blacks Out New Snowden Interview The Government Doesn’t Want You to See

This past Sunday evening former NSA contractor Edward Snowden sat down for an interview with German television network ARD. The interview has been intentionally blocked from the US public, with virtually no major broadcast news outlets covering this story. In addition, the video has been taken down almost immediately every time it’s posted on YouTube.

In contrast, this was treated as a major political event in both print and broadcast media, in Germany, and across much of the world. In the interview, Mr. Snowden lays out a succinct case as to how these domestic surveillance programs undermine and erode human rights and democratic freedom.

Israeli settlers attack Palestinians south of Jenin

A group of Jewish settlers attacked at dawn Friday Palestinian vehicles traveling on Jenin-Nablus road near the junction of Jaba village south of Jenin.

Around 12 vehicles carrying settlers stormed today the evacuated settlement of Tarsleh and blocked Jenin-Nablus road under military protection.

The settlers spread amongst nearby olive trees and embarked on attacking and stoning the passing Palestinian cars in the presence of Israeli soldiers, eyewitnesses said.

New wind turbine farce: How they take power from the National Grid even when they are NOT generating any electricity

Off-shore wind turbines take power from the National Grid when not generating electricity, it has emerged.

They use electricity to keep their blades rotating slowly in cold weather to prevent them icing up and to power the systems which turn the blades into the wind.

It costs around twice as much to produce electricity using offshore wind than at traditional coal and gas-fired power stations.

This Unarmed White Man Just Got Shot And Killed By Police; Here’s How The Media Reacted

There were no protests nor will there be for the death of Robert Lawrence. The Alabama man was turning in a stray animal at a local animal shelter when he apparently caused a commotion due to the shelter’s identification requirement. In an ensuing altercation with the police, the man ended up being shot and later died at the hospital.

 

More Police WTF: Alabama Man Shot, Killed by Police While Turning in Stray Cat.

Robert Earl Lawrence was turning in a stray cat in to a Dothan, Alabama animal shelter. For some reason, he had to show I.D. before he could leave the cat. Rather than pulling out a driver’s license, “he instead showed paperwork that identified him as a sovereign citizen and, therefore, not bound by federal, state, or local laws.”

The workers at the shelter called the cops, arguments enusued, and Lawrence was shot in the stomach, dying several hours later that day.

With Israel ‘war crimes’ gambit, PA risks loss of US funding

In initiating a war crimes probe against Israel with the International Criminal Court, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas may fall afoul of US legislation that would mandate defunding the PA. The US funds the PA to the tune of some $400 million per year.

Even if Abbas’s ICC investigation gambit does not play out — and Palestine’s route ahead at the ICC is strewn with legal obstacles — it is viewed by many leaders of the incoming Republican-controlled Congress as the latest justification to reexamine the PA’s American funding.

Should the US stop funding the PA, other, more local, Middle Eastern countries could well pick up the slack, like Qatar.

Seeking justice is counter-productive, US tells terrorised Palestinians

So has the State Department anything intelligent to say? Apparently not.

When it came to the Palestinians’ application to the ICC, US State Department spokesman Edgar Vasquez said the United States strongly opposed the move and warned it would be “counter-productive and do nothing to further the aspirations of the Palestinian people for a sovereign and independent state. It will badly damage the atmosphere with the very people with whom they ultimately need to make peace.”

In case he hadn’t noticed, the atmosphere is wrecked beyond repair and has been for a long time. So why is Vasquez annoying us with this claptrap?

 

Obama cannot use ‘veto pen’ on Iran sanctions: Sen. Rubio

Rubio, a Republican from Florida and potential contender for 2016 presidential election, says it is within Obama’s powers to obstruct the movement of legislation in Congress but not when it comes to Iran.

“There are some bills where I think he won’t be able to do that on — for example, sanctions on Iran. I think we’ll have a supermajority, a veto-proof majority to impose additional sanctions on Iran and to require the administration to come before Congress for approval of any deal that he has with Iran,” the senator said in an interview with NPR News.

Asked whether he would impose additional sanctions on Tehran in the midst of nuclear talks even if the move would destroy the prospect of a deal, Rubio said, “yes, because I don’t believe there is a prospect for a deal with Iran.”

US warns Bahrain opposition leader’s arrest could ‘inflame tensions’

As Sheikh Ali Salman remains in custody after leading protest against November elections, state department says more unrest may be on the horizon.

The State Department has expressed deep concern over the detention of the Bahraini opposition leader Sheikh Ali Salman, warning the arrest could lead to more tensions in the island kingdom.

Sheikh Salman, head of the al-Wefaq Islamic Society, was arrested on Sunday after leading a protest rally against elections in November which his party boycotted. He was remanded in custody for a further week on Tuesday.

“Opposition parties that peacefully voice criticism of the government play a vital role in inclusive, pluralistic states and societies,” the State Department said in a statement on Wednesday.

This is hypocrisy writ large, on the part of the US State Department, and it stinks to high heaven.

Because Bahrain is home to the US Navy’s 5th fleet, the US government has continued to enable the Sunni Al-Khalifa monarchy against its largely Shiite population. So far, these protests have been peaceful.

But these protestors have not only been arrested, tortured, then imprisoned after their arrests in a complete kangaroo court environment; the first responders who treated their wounds, meted out at the hands of the Bahraini police, have also been arrested, tortured, and jailed also.

The outlook for any real peace and democracy looks pretty dismal indeed.

The last President Kennedy said it best: “where peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.”

1000+ people killed by cops in 2014, FBI Trying to Falsely Report Actual Numbers

Another year has come to an end, which means another set of Unified Crime Reports (UCR) will be published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The reports are supposed to be the most authoritative set of data on crime in the US.

As has become the habit with most federal documents, the numbers are cooked. They could have honestly just made them up. In 2013, the FBI reported that there were 461 people killed by cops in the US.

461 seems to be a fairly good number. It fits with the estimates of 500 per year that most believe to be accurate. The problem is that the actual number of people killed by cops in 2013 is much higher…

U.S. advisers in Iraq stay out of combat but see fighting edging closer

In Iraq’s western Anbar province, more than 300 U.S. troops are posted at a base in the thick of a pitched battle between Iraqi forces, backed by tribal fighters, and well-armed Islamic State militants.

The militants, positioned at a nearby town, have repeatedly hit the base with artillery and rocket fire in recent weeks. Since the middle of December, the U.S.-led military coalition has launched 13 airstrikes around the facility.

U.S. troops have suffered no casualties in the attacks. But the violence has underlined the risks to American personnel as they fan out across Iraq as part of the expanding U.S. mission against the Islamic State, even as President Obama has pledged that U.S. operations “will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign soil.”

You can clock that last promise with a bloody egg timer.

My read would be, it is only a matter of time before we see combat, on the ground, in both Iraq and Syria; and why do I say this?!?

Because no military can win what is essentially a land war from the air.

And what happens then?!?

Apparently, the folks in Foggy Bottom in DC are dealing with SMD (selective memory disorder) on the issue of ground troops.

Does anyone remember Muqtada al Sadr, and the Mahdi Army, which were two of the primary reasons the US essentially withdrew from Iraq?!?

As of June of last year, he denounced the presence of US advisers in Iraq, as reported at www.islamicinvitationturkey.com:

Muqtada al-Sadr has voiced opposition against the presence of US military advisers in Iraq and has issued a warning to Takfiri militants there. On Wednesday, Sadr ruled out any intervention by the United States in Iraq and pledged to stop assaults by militants of the al-Qaeda splinter Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). “We will shake the ground under the feet of ignorance and extremism as we did under those of the occupation,” Sadr said in a televised speech from the holy city of Najaf. The prominent cleric expressed opposition against US military advisers’ meeting with Iraqi commanders, adding that he would back “international support from non-occupying states for the army of Iraq.”

IF there are US ground forces in Iraq now, I do not believe, for a moment, that this gentleman, and the forces at his disposal, will join hands and sing “Kumbyah”.

“Audit The Fed” Bill Gains Momentum, Yellen Starts Damage Control

After years of being blocked by Democratic leader Harry Reid, The Washington Times reports, the Senate will finally get a chance next year to vote on legislation to force a broad audit of the Federal Reserve’s decision-making. Ron Paul’s flagship legislative efforts have been picked up by his son and now has the backing of the leader of the new Republican majority, Sen. Mitch McConnell, whose office says the legislation will earn a floor vote. While the bill is not a sure thing, it appears to have The Fed worried as Reuters reports, Yellen and other Fed officials are lobbying Capitol Hill to drop the audit push.

As The Washington Times reports,

After years of being blocked by Democratic leader Harry Reid, the Senate will finally get a chance next year to vote on legislation to force a broad audit of the Federal Reserve’s decision-making.

If everything at the Federal Reserve is done open and above board, then Yellen should have no fear of an audit.

But because the Federal Reserve is no more “federal” than the Federal Express, what are the odds that monetary policies are made on the basis of what is going to line the pockets of executives of this bank, rather than create financial opportunities for hard working individuals in this country?!? I frankly would not bet against that.

Right now, money in this country is a loan at interest rather than a public utility.

And did you know that the Federal Reserve pays absolutely no taxes?!?

Scientists Alter Crops With Techniques Outside Regulators’ Scope

Scotts and several other companies are developing genetically modified crops using techniques that either are outside the jurisdiction of the Agriculture Department or use new methods — like “genome editing” — that were not envisioned when the regulations were created.

The department has said, for example, that it has no authority over a new herbicide-resistant canola, a corn that would create less pollution from livestock waste, switch grass tailored for biofuel production, and even an ornamental plant that glows in the dark.

The trend alarms critics of biotech crops, who say genetic modification can have unintended effects, regardless of the process.

“They are using a technical loophole so that what are clearly genetically engineered crops and organisms are escaping regulation,” said Michael Hansen, a senior scientist at Consumers Union. He said the grass “can have all sorts of ecological impact and no one is required to look at it.”

ANY GMO tinkering with any plant can have long-term unintended consequences, which can range from mild to horrific

Black Civil Rights Pioneer Was “Intimate Friends” with David Duke, Opposed the “Elite Ruling Class”

James Howard Meredith, born June 25, 1933 in Kosciusko, Mississippi, makes a lot of people uncomfortable. So much so that in the 90’s he said he had to move out of California “to make ends meet” after no one wanted to pay him to appear at speaking engagements anymore. Educated at the University of Mississippi and Columbia Law School, Meredith was known for becoming the first black student at the University of Mississippi.
Meredith supported David Duke for governor of Louisiana and even appeared in a TV ad for him in 1991. He supported Duke’s efforts to reform the welfare system because “it has caused dependency rather than self reliance,” adding “the liberals will be surprised how much of the black vote he receives.”

Six years ago, on January 1, 2009, 22-year-old Oscar Grant was shot execution style in the Oakland train station, a killing captured by witnesses on cell phone video which shocked the world. 28 year old police officer Johannes Mehserle eventually went to trial for the killing. During trial, Mehserle testified that he had almost no experience with firearms before joining the police force. He said he never owned guns before becoming a cop and had shot a gun “maybe once…My dad took me to the shooting range, at about thirteen, and that was it.” He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and not guilty of second-degree murder and voluntary manslaughter. He served a year in jail and got out in June of 2011. Wanda Johnson, Grant’s mother, started the Oscar Grant Foundation and is active nationwide.

Genuine conservatives sometimes say that the acronym BBC stands for “Bolshevik Broadcasting Corporation.” They speak more truly than they know. Just as Jews were hugely over-represented among the Bolshevik leaders, so they are among the BBC’s executives: Alan Yentob, Jenny Abramsky and Mark Damazer, for example.

According to the HSCIC, 50 percent of women and 43 percent of men are taking specialised drugs to combat physical and mental illnesses, with cholesterol-lowering statins and anti-depressants being among the most common drugs taken by Brits. According to the HSE report, doctors issued on average 18.7 prescriptions per person in England during 2013, costing the NHS more than £15bn per year. While the report does not count issuing of contraceptives and anti-smoking medication, nearly a third of the prescriptions were related to regulating blood pressure, with more than 65 million being issued in one year alone.

Egypt: Top Court Orders Retrial of Imprisoned Al-Jazeera Journalists

Egypt’s highest court of appeals has ordered a retrial of three al-Jazeera journalists who were imprisoned there last year, AFP reports, citing a defense lawyer.

Two Al Jazeera Journalists Held in Egypt Could Be Released Soon
“The Court of Cassation has accepted their appeal and ordered a retrial,” said Amr Al-Deeb, a defense lawyer for Peter Greste, following a brief hearing.

Greste, an Australian national, as well as Canadian-Egyptian Mohamed Fahmy and Baher Mohamed, an Egyptian national, were found guilty of publishing false news about Egypt, as well as aiding the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization authorities there have considered a terrorist organization since December 2013. Al-Jazeera has demanded the release of its reporters, and is calling the accusations against them absurd.

This is a step forward.

Even countries acting like dictatorships do not want to APPEAR as though they are dictatorships.

I hope to see these reporters all released, and soon.

 

2014 Year in Review: 7 Examples of Police State Technology Making Our Rights Obsolete

Things are not looking pretty for the land of the free.

The year 2014 has made it very clear that privacy is under threat, and the situation is not likely to improve. Mass surveillance – which became a national issue via the Edward Snowden leaks – is not subsiding or under reform; instead, is becoming more bold and complex with each passing day.

It would take several books to catalog the myriad ways in which the rights of The People have been casually infringed by various levels of government just in years since 9/11 and the introduction of the PATRIOT Act.

And it’s not only are federal agencies like the NSA, Homeland Security and the FBI that are taking liberties with our… umm… liberties; it is local police, too. The rise of technology is rapidly fueling these agencies with data and “intelligence” with very little oversight and even less pause for reflection to use these powerful abilities wisely and yes, judiciously.

 

Guest Post: 2014 – A Russian Viewpoint

By any measure 2014 has been a truly historic year which saw huge, I would say, even tectonic developments. This year ends in very high instability, and the future looks hard to guess. I don’t think that anybody can confidently predict what might happen next year. So what I propose to do today is something far more modest. I want to look into some of the key events of 2014 and think of them as vectors with a specific direction and magnitude. I want to look in which direction a number of key actors (countries) “moved” this year and with what degree of intensity. Then I want to see whether it is likely that they will change course or determination. Then adding up all the “vectors” of these key actors (countries) I want to make a calculation and see what resulting vector we will obtain for the next year.

This is a very long post, but well worth the read.

The bottom line here is that both Russia and the US/NATO military and political leaders are preparing for war over the rebellious provinces of Eastern Ukraine.

The big question is just how such a war will play out, with US/NATO fighting with the Ukrainian military, and Russia fighting to protect those Eastern rebellious provinces.

An Associated Press tally of announcements from the official Saudi Press Agency shows 83 people have been beheaded in Saudi Arabia in 2014, including Wednesday’s execution. Most were executed for drug smuggling.

Amnesty International says Saudi Arabia has one of the highest execution rates in the world.

In talking about the barbarism of ISIS, rarely a word is stated regarding Saudi Arabia’s penchant for lopping off the heads of their prisoners.

ANOTHER LETTER THE NEW YORK TIMES WOULD SURELY DEEM UNFIT TO PRINT

How dare Mr. Roger Cohen suggest that Gaza, a part of my homeland, is “nowhere!”

If Mr. Cohen is at a loss to know where Gaza lies, allow me to guide him. The Gaza Strip, as well as Gaza City, were both part and parcel of Historic Palestine, between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. Following the colossal injustice that resulted in the displacement of more than half of the Palestinian people, and then the creation of what we know today as the state of Israel, and the subsequent military occupation of the remaining Palestinian lands of the West Bank and Gaza Strip, the Gaza Strip become part and parcel of an Israeli-militarily-occupied territory. It is this military occupation under which many of my friends and colleagues were born and live to this day.

Palestinians To Join International Criminal Court

Turning up the pressure on Israel, the Palestinians announced Wednesday that they are joining the International Criminal Court to pursue war-crimes charges against the Jewish state — a risky, high-stakes move that brought threats of retaliation from Israel and criticism from the U.S.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas acted a day after suffering a defeat in the U.N. Security Council, which voted down a resolution setting a three-year deadline for the establishment of a Palestinian state on lands occupied by Israel.

“We want to complain. There’s aggression against us, against our land. The Security Council disappointed us,” Abbas said.

Turning to the international court at The Hague marks a major policy shift, transforming Abbas’ relations with Israel from tense to openly hostile. The ultimate goal is to pressure Israel into withdrawing from the territories and agreeing to Palestinian statehood.

And the countless killings of innocent Palestinians by the IDF are not “hostile” acts?!? Operation Protective Edge was not “hostile”?!? The brisk annexation of Palestinian land for Jewish only settlements is not “hostile”?!?

IF these acts are not “hostile”, I cannot tell you what IS supposed to be hostile!

North Korea’s Kim Jong Un Offers Talks With South In New Year’s Message

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said in a New Year’s speech Thursday that he is open to more talks or even a summit with his South Korean counterpart, a statement welcomed by Seoul, which in turn urged the North to take concrete steps toward normalization of relations.

Kim’s call for improving inter-Korea relations comes as Pyongyang is facing heightened criticism over its human rights record and souring ties with Washington over allegations it was involved in the massive hacking attack on Sony Pictures linked to “The Interview,” a dark comedy that portrayed an assassination attempt on Kim.

Mr Soejatman said that at least as baffling was “the extremely low ground speed” which was as low as 61 knots during the descent. This would suggest the plane was heading almost straight down, explaining why it was found in the water just 10km from its last point of radar contact.

The new claims lend weight to the impression that the plane was subject to extraordinary forces from the weather.

There Are Several Thousand Secret Photos of America’s Horrific Torture Program. Should Obama Release Them?

You may recall, from the dark days of Abu Ghraib, that there was a batch of photos that was never released—images the Pentagon deemed so inflammatory that they needed to stay under wraps. The ones we saw were disturbing enough: the piles of naked Iraqi prisoners, the soldier giving a thumbs up next to an ice-packed corpse, the prisoners being menaced by dogs. And who can forget that iconic shot of a hooded man (his name is Ali Shalil Qaissi), standing on a box in a shower with wires attached to his fingers—a mock execution. There are as many as 2,100 additional images, according to the ACLU, which sued the government in 2004 demanding their release. President Obama has resisted the legal efforts, noting in a statement that to make the photos public would “impact the safety of our troops.”

Actually, release of the photos will impact the safety of our leaders who ordered the use of these methods, and frankly I see that as a good thing! So yes, release them all. We The People have a right to know what the government has been doing with our money and in our name. And if it is war crimes, which seems to be the case, We The People have a moral obligation to crate up these leaders ourselves and ship them to the Hague for trial.

Under the public radar , NATO is modernising its tactical nuclear arsenal. Moscow’s latest tests of intercontinental missiles and its parading of nuclear capable strategic bombers have rightly prompted international concern. In December 2014, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov implied that Russia might be moving nuclear weapons to Crimea. From violations of airspace to near mid- air collisions, the number of incidents between Russia and NATO has soared dramatically, increasing the danger of an unintended escalation. Yet, it is rarely mentioned that NATO, too, is back in the game of nuclear deterrence.

US lifts 40-year ban on oil exports

The US has decided to lift a ban on crude oil exports introduced in the 1970’s. The Obama administration is allowing several companies to start exporting raw materials beginning next August.

Supplies can start as early as August, although initial volumes are likely be small.

‘Caught in dragnet’: Innocent charities lose millions due to anti-terror laws

British charities working in conflict zones are being cut off from millions of pounds worth of funding due to counter-terrorism legislation, a report published on Wednesday suggests.

The paper, produced by the Demos think tank, shows that a wide range of charities, especially those operating in the Middle East, have been affected as major banks continue to shut down bank accounts they believe might be linked to funding terrorist activity.

“Certain users of the banking system deemed to be high risk have found it ever harder to receive, send and store their money,” said the Royal United Services Institute’s (RUSI) director for financial crime and security studies, Tom Keatinge, who authored the report.

“In the worst cases they have had their bank accounts closed, losing financial access.”

Frozen instruments, deliberate crash? AirAsia plane crash versions multiply

Recovering data from flight and cockpit recorders would be crucial for establishing the truth about the fate of QZ8501, but some flight experts point out that the AirAsia Airbus A320 crash has similarities with another flight incident, that of Air France flight AF447 in 2009.

The plane was officially classed as missing for two years and was found only in 2011. The investigation showed instruments called pitot tubes froze and gave false airspeed readings to the crew. They failed to respond to the problem accordingly and didn’t notice that the plane was about to stall or to try to recover it.

“What we know so far is that our soldiers fired mortar rounds from three outposts but we do not know whether it was intentional,” the official said.

‘US an enemy': Palestinian official blasts Washington over UNSC statehood veto

Palestine will start an international campaign showcasing the US as “an enemy,” pushing Israeli extremists to carry on with their actions and supporting Israel in everything, Fatah central committee member Abbas Zaki said.

Zaki, also the former representative of the Palestine Liberation Organization in Lebanon, told RT Arabic that the latest developments in the UNSC were not a failure for Palestinian diplomacy.

“It’s just the persistent unwillingness of the US administration to give the Palestinian people its lawful right of self-determination. It’s a very dangerous precedent,” he said.

‘Agri-Terrorism’ was cited by officials as a reason why such regulations should be enforced on something as natural as the right to exchange and possess seeds.

$162M Michigan state budget shortfall forecast

 

Some bad news could welcome lawmakers back from Christmas break: A projected $162 million shortfall in the state budget.

A preliminary forecast out this week from the state Senate Fiscal Agency says income throughout the fiscal year that began Oct. 1 will be $212.2 million less than officials estimated in May. Lawmakers used the spring forecast to develop the current budget.

Based on approved general-fund spending, income would fall short and lawmakers would have to cover the gap “by a shift of revenue from other fund sources or reduced spending,” the report says.

US ‘Strongly Opposes’ PA ICC Request

 

The United States said Wednesday it “strongly opposes” a request from the Palestinian Authority to join the International Criminal Court (ICC), fearing this will further delay peace talks with Israel.

“It would be counterproductive and would do nothing to further the aspirations of the Palestinian people for a sovereign and independent state,” the State Department said. “It will badly damage the atmosphere with the very people with whom they ultimately need to make peace.”

“As we’ve said before, the United States continues to strongly oppose actions — by both parties — that undermine trust and create doubts about their commitment to a negotiated peace,” it continued. “Our position has not changed. Such actions only push the parties further
apart.”

The US is doing its level best to keep the criminal activities of the IDF and Israeli government against the Palestinians as quiet as possible; with the Palestinian Authority becoming a signatory to the ICC, that will be rendered impossible.

The level of embarrassment the US government will experience will be pretty uncomfortable, when neither they, nor Israel can dictate the narrative here.

Why Is The Fed Hiring An “Emergency Preparedness Specialist Familiar With DHS Directives”

 

A few weeks ago, we reported that for some still unexplained reason, the US Treasury is ordering “survival kits” to its employees overseeing the federal banking system.

We still don’t know why. But what makes things even more surprising, and confusing, is that two days before the survival kit RFP soliciation became public on December 4, 2014, a just as curious notice was blasted by the Fed’s recruiting Twitter account:

So the Fed is hiring not just any “emergency preparedness specialist” but one familiar with DHS directives?

#Hiring an emergency preparedness specialist familiar w/ Department of Homeland Security directives. #Job ID:10185 http://go.usa.gov/6rpx

The only question is why does the Fed – a uniformly safe institution, where economists engage in deep contemplation and decide how much of the US deficit they will monetize – need a person with these qualifications?

The only thing which makes sense to me is that the Fed believes, based on some very critical realities, that there is going to be some massive financial and social disruption in the US in 2015.

Folks, I know I sound like a chipped CD on this one, but if the Fed is preparing for a massive financial and social disruption here at home, you had darned well better be preparing for it as well.

Please make sure you have potable water, some kind of filtration, storable food and a means to cook things if power goes off. If you, or the people you care about are on medication, please make sure you have extra medication for yourself, and your loved ones. Buy small amounts of gold and silver, and do not put any more money in the bank than just what you need to pay your bills. Figure out what skills and services you can barter if the US currency crashes completely, and becomes worthless. Have a bug out plan, if you need to leave, and make sure you know how to get your children released from school, if you need to.

Preparing never hurts; when things go haywire, it is the preparing that can keep you and your family alive in the middle of any kind of a disaster.

Saudi King undergoing medical tests in Riyadh hospital: state TV

 

Saudi Arabia’s elderly King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz was admitted to a hospital in the capital Riyadh on Wednesday for medical tests, state media reported on Wednesday, citing a royal court statement.

King Abdullah was born in the court of his father, King Abdulaziz Ibn Saud, in the early 1920s.

The softly-spoken monarch, who took power in 2005 after the death of King Fahd, has undergone surgery in the past few years related to a herniated disc.

This is a critically important juncture for the House of Saud, because should the king die, succession is not yet clear. And it will be King Abdullah’s successor who, most likely, will be calling the shots on foreign and domestic policies.

And one has to wonder; after the US vetoed the establishment of a Palestinian state at the UN Security Council yesterday, just how western-centric Abdullah’s successor might be, and whether they will still insist on selling their oil in US dollars?

As reported in wickipedia.com:

The order of succession to the throne of Saudi Arabia is determined by, and within, the House of Saud. It follows agnatic (a relative whose connection is traceable exclusively through males) seniority, but a prince may be surpassed or another elevated. The Allegiance Council was created in 2006 to facilitate the royal transfer of power.

 

 

 

Use of US nuclear fuel at Czech Republic’s Temelin NPP causes problems — experts

 

Attempts to use nuclear fuel from the US manufacturer Westinghouse inside reactors of the Czech Republic’s Soviet-designed Temelin nuclear power plant in the past repeatedly caused many unexpected situations and problems, the provider of Russian fuel assemblies for Czech NPPs, ALTA, told TASS.

“In particular, such incidents occurred at Hungary’s Paks NPP and the Czech Republic’s Temelin,” the company said. “Europe still remembers that and advises its counterparts in other countries not to repeat their mistakes by replacing the nuclear fuel specifically designed for this type of reactors with unauthorized substitutes.”

The issue is important because Ukraine has just contracted with Westinghouse to provide fuel rods for their Russian-built reactors.

 

 

 

Couple thrown in JAIL for being unable to pay court fees on traffic ticket they received visiting dying son in hospital

 

An Alabama couple say they ended up in a modern-day equivalent of a debtor’s jail after they had failed to pay court fees in connection to a minor traffic violation as their young son lay dying in the hospital.

Tim Fugatt, a music pastor from Sylacauga, Alabama, was pulled over in Childersburg in December 2010 and issued a ticket for driving with an expired tag on his license plate.

At the time of the traffic stop, Mr Fugatt was returning home from visiting his terminally ill infant son, Cole, suffering from a rare brain disease.

The couple told a judge about their gravely ill child and were both found not guilty, but the judge ruled they still had to pay $500 in court fees.

Not guilty, and they STILL have to pay $500?!?

US Urges War Against Rwandan Militia in East Congo

 

US Special Envoy Russ Feingold today demanded that the United Nations and African nations launch a war against Rwandan Hutu rebels in eastern Congo, insisting that any delay of the war would lead to human rights abuses.

The group, the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (DFLR), is facing a demand to unconditionally surrender by January 2. Feingold says that on that day, military action needs to be launched without delay.

A short memo to US Special Envoy Feingold: after the heavily redacted US report on the use of torture, released this last Fall, this country has absolutely no place whatsoever to lecture any government, or militia, on human rights abuses.

And sir, let us come down to the brass tacks of why the US is advocating war on Rwanda. It is to make sure that those yet unexploited resources of the country are safely in Western-centric hands, and that they be sold only for the US dollar.

These figures were borne out by more recent 2014 numbers from the federal government’s other major drug study, the Monitoring the Future survey.

San Francisco Schools Transformed by the Power of Meditation

 

Silence isn’t something people usually associate with middle school, but twice a day the halls of Visitacion Valley School in San Francisco fall quiet as the sixth, seventh and eighth grade students meditate for fifteen minutes.

And school administrators tell NBC News that the violence outside of the school, which is situated in one of San Francisco’s poorest neighborhoods, was spilling into the school and affecting the students’ demeanor.

“The kids see guns on a daily basis,” the school’s athletic director, Barry O’Driscoll said, adding, “there would be fights here three-to-five times a week.”

With a typical schools days filled with mayhem, O’Driscoll was skeptical when the San Francisco Public School District introduced a meditation program, called “quiet time,” to four of its schools, including Visitacion Valley.

While there are no cure-alls for the dismal state of education in this country, this is one modality I wish other schools would explore; it appears to be working, and the numbers speak for themselves.

 

Fallout from radioactive Fukushima rising in west coast waters

 

Radioactivity from Japan’s crippled nuclear reactors has turned up off the British Columbia coast and the level will likely peak in waters off North America in the next year or two, according to a Canadian-led team that’s intercepted the nuclear plume.

The radioactivity “does not represent a threat to human health or the environment,” but is detectable off Canada’s west coast and the level is climbing, a team led by oceanographer John Smith at Fisheries and Ocean Canada (also known as the Department of Fisheries and Oceans) reported Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Russia’s Putin Sends New Year’s Message To Obama

 

Russian President Vladimir Putin has said in a New Year’s message to U.S. President Barack Obama that Moscow is looking for equality in bilateral relations next year.

The Kremlin on Wednesday published several dozen New Year’s messages addressed to heads of states and international organizations such as the Olympic Committee and FIFA.

Putin reminded Obama of the upcoming 70th anniversary of the allied victory in World War II and said that it should serve as a reminder of “the responsibility that Russia and the United States bear for maintaining peace and international stability.” Moscow is anxious for the relations to advance but only as long as there is “equality and mutual respect.”

DO YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT ISRAEL? ~~ HERE ARE THE ANSWERS

A “regional economic power.” That’s how ANIMA, the Euro-Mediterranean Network of Investment Promotion Agencies encompassing 70 governmental agencies and international networks, described Israel in its January 2010 Mediterranean Investment Map. The report analyzed the economies of the 27 European Union countries as well as 9 “partner countries.”

I am not an economist, but I have to wonder why US taxpayers are doling out $3 billion a year in direct military aid to a “regional economic power.”

Obama Imposed 75,000 Pages of New Regulations in 2014

 

Just in the last few weeks, the Obama administration has proposed or imposed over 1,200 new regulations on the American people that will add even more to the already crushing $2 trillion per year cost burden of the federal regulatory machine. According to data compiled from the federal government’s Regulations.gov website by the Daily Caller, most of the new regulatory schemes involve energy and the environment — 139 during a mere two-week period in December, to be precise. In all, the Obama administration foisted more than 75,000 pages of regulations on the United States in 2014, costing over $200 billion, on the low end, if new proposed rules are taken into account.

This works out to just over 205 new regulations every single day of 2014!

1000% Inflation in Venezuela?

 

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro, set to announce a new currency system today, needs to devalue the bolivar or risk inflation passing 1,000 percent as soon as next year, according to Bank of America Corp.

Under the current system, Venezuela’s overvalued bolivar means that the government effectively sells the dollars it gets from oil exports at a discount, compelling policy makers to print extra currency to cover domestic spending needs. Currency controls that limit Venezuelans’ access to dollars have spawned a black market in which the greenback fetches 172 bolivars, compared with officially sanctioned exchange rates that range from 6.3 to about 50 bolivars per dollar.

Russia is not the only country hit by a downward spiral or oil prices!

 

 

 

NSA spying in Vienna detailed at Chaos meet

According to a report in the Austrian news daily Der Standard, Möchel had made extensive use of the documents revealed by Edward Snowden, the former systems administrator and defense contractor with Booz Allen Hamilton who allegedly leaked NSA and CIA secret archives.

The documents show that the American National Security Agency operates a robust presence in the Austrian capital, and with good reason. Despite Vienna having a population of only 1.75 million people, the city is home to more than 17,000 accredited diplomats, many of whom work in the various international organizations, including the United Nations, IAEA, UNIDO, CTBTO, OSCE and OPEC.

That means nearly 1 percent of Vienna’s population have diplomatic status – and a significant portion of those are likely to be spies, according to Austrian investigative journalist Emil Bobi, who estimates that there are more than 7,000 spooks living in the

Russia Slams UNSC failure to Act on Palestine; Vows to Continue

 

Russia has warned that the United Nations Security Council’s failure to approve a draft resolution demanding the recognition of an independent Palestinian state could plunge the Middle East into insecurity and violence.

“The inaction of the Security Council in this area dooms the situation to a dangerous status quo which we cannot accept. One chance for hope is not enough. We must continue,” Russian Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said.

The Russian diplomat expressed regret over the UN’s rejection of the resolution, describing it as a “strategic mistake.”

The most censored health news stories of 2014 – here’s what the establishment doesn’t want you to remember

 

In August of 2014, a high-level CDC scientist named William Thompson went public with an admission that he and other scientists knowingly committed scientific fraud at the CDC. This was done, Thompson explained, to bury any public knowledge of the scientific evidence linking vaccines and autism.

In a public letter posted on the website of his legal counsel, Thompson wrote:

I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected…

Along with this admission, Natural News also exclusively released two secret emails further implicating the CDC and its top scientists and executives. You can read those emails here.

Obama Says He Is Improving the World

 

U.S. President Barack Obama said in a December 30th Oval Office interview with Steve Inskeep of National Public Radio, that, “wherever we have been involved over the last several years, I think the outcome has been better because of American leadership.” This statement from him was part of his answer when Inskeep asked whether the President had regrets about “overthrowing the Gaddafi regime” in Libya.

Obama answered:

“We are hugely influential; we’re the one indispensable nation. But when it comes to nation-building, when it comes to what is going to be a generational project in a place like Libya or a place like Syria or a place like Iraq, we can help, but we can’t do it for them.” In other words: the Libyan people failed, and the Syrian people failed, and the Iraqi people failed, according to America’s President — but he himself and his predecessor Bush did not fail by bombing those countries under false pretenses as they did.

There is only a one word characterization of Obama’s state of mind, upon making these statements: delusional!!!

And unfortunately, even invoking the 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which states that a President can be removed for physical or mental disabilities, the US government would be left with…President Biden for at least two years.

Gun owners fear Maryland cops target them for traffic stops

 

A year ago this New Year’s Eve, John Filippidis of Florida was driving south with his family on Interstate 95 when the Maryland Transportation Authority Police pulled over his black Ford Expedition and proceeded to raid it while his twins, wife and daughter looked on — separated in the back seats of different police cruisers.

The officers were searching for Mr. Filippidis‘ Florida-licensed, palm-size Kel-Tec .38 semi-automatic handgun, which he left at home locked in his safe. (Maryland does not recognize handgun permits issued by other states.)

Revealed: Gaza orphans Israel trip was government-backed PR stunt

 

The visit was the brainchild of an Israeli operative deeply involved in settlements in the occupied West Bank, working closely with the Israeli government.

It is unlikely that the non-governmental organization in Gaza that helped coordinate the visit was aware of these facts when it agreed to take part.

Debunking the “The Saudis did 9-11″ nonsense!

 

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don’t need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel recently pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions. More recently, Veteran’s Today has signed onto the sales-force for this latest hoax.

Jones Lynch, and Massie are called a press conference to announce bill HR428, which will “authorize” the declassification of this hoax.

Now, we all know how DC works. If these congresscritters wanted the document to be made public they would leak it. They could send it to WikiLeaks. It happens all the time. This caterwauling is just an attention-getting device to try to trick Americans into supporting this document before they have actually seen it, so that once it is released, they will support it because it is what “they” wanted!

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn’t have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

 

 

 

UK Ebola patient was cleared to leave Heathrow despite health concerns

The 39-year-old, whose identity emerged on Tuesday, was receiving specialist treatment in an isolation unit at the Royal Free hospital in London on Tuesday night having been transferred from Gartnavel hospital in Glasgow.

 

 

 

‘CIA fingerprints’ all over Kiev massacre – Oliver Stone

 

The armed coup in Kiev is painfully similar to CIA operations to oust unwanted foreign leaders in Iran, Chile and Venezuela, said US filmmaker Oliver Stone after interviewing Ukraine’s ousted president for a documentary.

Stone spent four hours in Moscow talking to Viktor Yanukovich, who was deposed from power during the February 2014 coup, the filmmaker wrote on his Facebook page.

“Details to follow in the documentary, but it seems clear that the so-called ‘shooters’ who killed 14 police men, wounded some 85, and killed 45 protesting civilians, were outside third party agitators,” he said. “Many witnesses, including Yanukovych and police officials, believe these foreign elements were introduced by pro-Western factions – with CIA fingerprints on it.”

The highest volumes of Internet searches for sexual content were found in states where religion and conservatism were most prevalent.

Benefits vs. Bullets: Pentagon’s New Budget Throws Troops Under Bus

 

At a time when veterans are already facing record unemployment and homelessness, the Pentagon has made it crystal clear that if given a choice between benefits and bullets, without hesitation it will throw troops under the bus and save what’s left of its budget for bullets.

The Great Unraveling of 2015

 

For the record, a major, global, financial collapse is now underway. It’s not impending; it’s here. Forget about the “happy talk” propaganda from the USSA government and the lame stream news media in the Western countries. When you understand that at least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day the dire living conditions of the great mass of humanity come into sharp focus. The situation is already very bad for most human beings on this planet. The crisis is highly likely to enter an even more acute phase this year, fraught with peril for many millions of people, after which the global economy will either begin to improve for the great mass of humanity, or the present so-called “global civilization” will be rocked to its very core, and may even outright collapse. We should know which way the trend will tend by this time next year.

11 of the worst policy ideas of 2014: “Scapegoating Colorado for your state’s drug problems…Drug-testing welfare recipients…Blocking cities from selling their own Internet…Civil asset forfeiture…”

 

If we had to sum up 2014 in four words, they would be: “bold new policy ideas.” We needed them, and we didn’t get them. To be fair, though, some of them were actually new. And some of them were bold. But most of them barely qualified as ideas. Now, we don’t like to be nattering nabobs of negativism here at Wonkblog, but we do want our policymakers to do better. Or at least try harder. So, in the spirit of learning from our mistakes, here are the times when our leaders failed to answer the call in the most spectacular way possible. We invite you to add your own nominees in the comments, and without further ado, present the abbreviated version of the year that was in terrible policy.

“Distancing Acts:” Private Mercenaries and the War on Terror in American Foreign Policy

 

snip: Naomi Klein has commented that Iraq was more than a failed occupation, it was a “radical experiment in corporate rule.” Led by radical free-market ideologists, the Bush administration placed a primacy on deregulation, corporate tax cuts and privatizing state-run industry in Iraq, which was to be a shining model for the virtues of neoliberal capitalism. After Saddam’s government fell, Booz-Allen Hamilton, one of the Beltway’s biggest consulting firms, organized a conference which called for the rewriting of Iraq’s business, property and trade laws in ways conducive to foreign investment. The Bush administration ultimately tore down Iraq’s centralized, state-run economy without building anything to replace it while provoking civil war and putting in place a political system ensuring fierce regional and ethnic divisions.

The war’s key architects believed with Erik Prince, founding CEO of Blackwater, that the privatization of war could ensure greater military efficiency while cutting out wasteful spending. Prince told a reporter that “we’re trying to do for the national security apparatus what fed-ex did for the postal service. They did many of the same services, better, faster and cheaper.” Upon his appointment as defense secretary, Donald Rumsfeld had set about reducing the wasteful Pentagon bureaucracy and revolutionizing the U.S. armed forces by moving towards a lighter, more flexible fighting machine and harnessing private sector power on multiple fronts. He wrote in Foreign Affairs that “we must promote a more entrepreneurial approach: one that encourages people to be proactive, not reactive, and to behave less like bureaucrats and more like venture capitalists.” These remarks were in-line with the philosophy initially honed in Rumsfeld’s days outsourcing government functions as head of the Office of Economic Opportunity under Richard M. Nixon. They were welcomed by defense contractors and PMCs ready to cash in on the new opportunities made available by the Global War on Terror (GWOT).

 

 

 

Reports Saying Patients with Ebola-like Symptoms in NYC Are False

 

Five people were displaying Ebola-like symptoms in the Brooklyn borough of New York City on Monday, according to rumors that were being circulated on Twitter. However, the Health Department says that the reports are not true.

The information appeared to come from police scanner traffic but was unconfirmed. A number of users retweeted the information from several accounts which posted the scanner traffic.

I wasn’t paying much attention to this story until it was officially denied. NOW I am worried! :)

Let’s see, tonight there will be a million plus people jammed into Times Square for the New Year. One Ebola carrier added to the mix, an r-naught of 2.2, and I can guess why all those merchants and vendors would not want to see any stories about Ebola in New York right now, along with the government that needs those tax revenues.

‘You’re Either a Cop or Little People’: The American Police State in 2014 By John W. Whitehead

 

snip: Now there are those who still insist that they are beyond the reach of the police state because they have done nothing wrong and have nothing to fear. To those sanctimonious few, secure in their delusions, let this be a warning: the danger posed by the American police state applies equally to all of us: lawbreaker and law abider alike, black and white, rich and poor, liberal and conservative, blue collar and white collar, and any other distinction you’d care to trot out.

The lesson of 2014 is simply this: in a police state, you’re either a cop or you’re one of the little people. Right now, we are the little people, the servants, the serfs, the grunts who must obey without question or suffer the consequences.

If there is to be any hope in 2015 for restoring our freedoms and reclaiming our runaway government, we will have to start by breathing life into those three powerful words that set the tone for everything that follows in the Constitution: “we the people.”

Cost of living crunch means real wages have fallen by as much as 50% in six years in some parts of UK – and unions warn they may not recover until 2024

 

Real average earnings across Britain have fallen by 15 per cent over the past six years and in some parts of the country by as much as 50 per cent, according to research published today.

The study by the GMB union found average annual pay rose by £1,134 to £27,271 between 2008 and 2014.

But the cost of living rose so much over the same period that the value of average earnings has in fact fallen 15.1 per cent nationally once adjusted for inflation – and it was London boroughs that dominated the biggest falls along with northern towns and cities.

 

 

 

BBC’s decision to drop Royal documentary after intervention by Prince Charles’ lawyers is ‘sinister censorship’ says MP

 

The BBC’s decision to shelve a documentary about the Royal Family days before it was due to be broadcast is ‘sinister censorship’, critics said today.

Reinventing The Royals is said to be critical of Prince Charles’ attempt to rebuild his reputation and increase public sympathy for Camilla Parker Bowles after the death of Princess Diana.

MPs said today the Royals are guilty of ‘gross interference’ after lawyers known to represent Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall are said to have complained about the shows.

Critics have also said that the BBC has questions to answer after failing to ‘stand firm’ under pressure over the documentary.

The series was due to have documented a PR plan to make Charles and Camilla more popular after Diana’s death in 1997 in a campaign called ‘Operation Mrs PB’.

“This New Year’s day is not a moment for despair, It is the birthday of a new hope,” Coughlin said- a hope based on ‘understanding’ the “flagrant abuse of our financial system”- a “financial system originated by the Rothschilds,” he explained.
He said we must “rescue the principle of Christ’s charity and brotherhood from the stupid hands of those who have tried to substitute the doctrines of selfishness and the gospel of greed which have foisted upon us a man-made depression.” People must decide “whether or not men shall adopt the principles of Moloch or the Gospel of Christ.”

Maduro blames plunging oil prices on U.S. ‘war’ vs Russia, Venezuela

 

Venezuela’s petroleum export price has plunged by half during the second half of 2014 to $48, President Nicolas Maduro said on Monday in denouncing a U.S.-led “war” against Russia and his nation in the global oil market

The South American OPEC nation’s crude trades at a discount to the U.S. and Brent benchmarks because of its higher content of heavy oil.

Average monthly prices for oil, a product that accounts for 96 percent of Venezuela’s hard currency revenue, have dropped steadily since July, when it was at $96.14 per barrel.

Venezuela enjoyed average prices of $103.42 per barrel in 2012 and $98.08 in 2013.

Giving the latest figure for Monday, Maduro repeated his socialist government’s accusations that the plunge in oil was a U.S.-planned conspiracy primarily intended to harm Russia.

Egypt to begin expanding Gaza buffer zone next week

 

Egypt said Tuesday work will begin next week to double the width of a buffer zone being built along the border with the Gaza Strip to prevent militants infiltrating from the Palestinian enclave.

A 500-metre (546-yard) wide buffer zone is now being built along some 10 kilometres (six miles) of the border, with some 800 homes being demolished in the process.

Note the buffer is carved out of Palestine, not Egypt.

 

 

 

Key Figures In CIA-Crack Cocaine Scandal Begin To Come Forward

 

More than 18 years have passed since Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb stunned the world with his “Dark Alliance” newspaper series investigating the connections between the CIA, a crack cocaine explosion in the predominantly African-American neighborhoods of South Los Angeles, and the Nicaraguan Contra fighters — scandalous implications that outraged LA’s black community, severely damaged the intelligence agency’s reputation and launched a number of federal investigations.

It did not end well for Webb, however. Major media, led by The New York Times, Washington Post and Los Angeles Times, worked to discredit his story. Under intense pressure, Webb’s top editor abandoned him. Webb was drummed out of journalism. One LA Times reporter recently apologized for his leading role in the assault on Webb, but it came too late. Webb died in 2004 from an apparent suicide. Obituaries referred to his investigation as “discredited.”

Bolivia´s Morales: US ‘Backs Drug Trafficking’

 

The so-called War on Drugs pushed by Washington is just one of the many means that the United States uses to pressure and control governments in Latin America, according to Bolivian President Evo Morales.

“(U.S. government) uses its War on Drugs to pursue its own geo-political agenda and now they use it to accuse other governments and take them down,” Morales, one of the Latin American leaders who has most fiercely criticized U.S. policy in the region, told the Mexican newspaper La Jornada in an article published Monday.

“They even named me the ‘Andinean Bin Laden’ and accused us of being terrorists and drug traffickers and at the same United States is the top-nation that backs and benefits from drug trafficking,” the Bolivian president continued.

Radioactive leak at major Ukrainian nuclear plant – report

 

A radioactive leak has been detected at Ukraine’s Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant, the largest in Europe, a media report says, citing the country’s emergency services. Ukrainian officials have denied the report.

The Prison State Of America

 

Prisons employ and exploit the ideal worker. Prisoners do not receive benefits or pensions. They are not paid overtime. They are forbidden to organize and strike. They must show up on time. They are not paid for sick days or granted vacations. They cannot formally complain about working conditions or safety hazards. If they are disobedient, or attempt to protest their pitiful wages, they lose their jobs and can be sent to isolation cells. The roughly 1 million prisoners who work for corporations and government industries in the American prison system are models for what the corporate state expects us all to become. And corporations have no intention of permitting prison reforms that would reduce the size of their bonded workforce. In fact, they are seeking to replicate these conditions throughout the society.

Nobody knew what…Famous Scientist: Henry Norris Russell was going to do!

 

Until the early 19th century, astronomers could do little more than watch the night sky and the movements of the stars charting. But astrophysics brought many new opportunities. The American Henry Norris Russell was one of the first astrophysicists he suggested a color-luminosity diagram for research into the life of stars. This so-called HR diagram is still a resource for astronomers.

This century will not be the «American Century» as the neo-conservatives in Washington think. It will be a «Eurasian Century».

 

A multi-spectrum war is being waged against Moscow by Washington. If there are any doubts about this, they should be put to rest. Geopolitics, science and technology, speculation, financial markets, information streams, large business conglomerates, intelligentsia, mass communication, social media, the internet, popular culture, news networks, international institutions, sanctions, audiences, public opinion, nationalism, different governmental bodies and agencies, identity politics, proxy wars, diplomacy, countervailing international alliances, major business agreements, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), human rights, prestige, military personnel, capital, and psychological tactics are all involved in this multi-spectrum war.

On a daily basis this struggle can be seen playing out on the airwaves, in the war theaters in Ukraine and the Middle East, through the statements and accusations of diplomats, and in the economic sphere.

BREAKING: Obama releases five more Gitmo prisoners overnight

 

President Obama released five more prisoners from Guantanamo Bay Naval Base overnight, Fox News reported. They were held for more than a decade and were sent to resettle in Kazakhstan.

The men were arrested in Pakistan following the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001, but were never charged, The Daily Mail reported. Three of the men were from Yemen and identified by The Daily Mail as: “Asim Thabit Abdullah Al-Khalaqi, who is about 46; Muhammad Ali Husayn Khanayna, who is about 36; and Sabri Mohammad al Qurashi, about 44.”

LA Times Absurdity: The ‘Enemy Within’ Is Cultivated by Fedgov Gridlock

 

This article presents the idea that people are going to get so fed up with do-nothing politicians – hamstrung by gridlock – that they will rise up and demand a dictatorship.

The logic fails to convince us, though the article is penned by an award-winning professor. Jared Diamond, we learn from his bio, is author of The World Until Yesterday, Collapse and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Guns, Germs and Steel.

Despite his credentials, we find plenty of controversial statements in this editorial. Bottom line: We never heard anyone say, “Gee, I’m so frustrated over the lack of laws being passed that I hope a dictator comes along and passes more of them.”

As you may or may not have heard, Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La), House Majority Whip since August, spoke in front of some bad people back in 2002. The story was broken at a (mostly) Louisiana political blog, CenLamar, by blogger Lamar White, Jr. Steve Scalise reportedly had spoken in front of a conference held by an organization founded by none other than ex-Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan and Louisiana political darling (sorry, Louisiana, but you wet your own nest, so the stink sticks), David Duke.

FLASHBACK – Woman who MADE UP entire bestselling holocaust memoir is forced to pay back $22.5 million after her lies are revealed 17 years later … and she’s not even Jewish

 

In her memoir, Defonseca wrote that she trekked 1,900 miles across Europe in search of her parents. She spent months living in the forest with a pack of wolves, hiding from Nazis and in one encounter, stabbed a Nazi rapist to death.

These events all occurred when she was aged between seven and 11 years old, according to the book.

Following her trial loss, Daniel set out to determine whether Defonseca’s tale was truthful.

She eventually located a document that included Defonseca’s maiden name – which in the book was Levy – and her date and place of birth.

Her real name, Daniel found, was Monica Ernestine Josephine De Wael, and she was not Jewish.

During the time she was supposed to have been communing with wolves and killing Nazis, Defonseca was in actual fact enrolled in a Brussels school.

A diet containing GM soy and maize fed to rats for 30, 60, and 90 days caused a wide range of toxic effects, including DNA damage, abnormal sperm, blood changes, and damage to liver, kidney, and testes.

The Egyptian team of researchers concluded (see item 1 below) that “there are health hazards linked to the ingestion of diets containing genetically modified components”.

Histopathological examinations of various body tissues were carried out, and marked differences in the tissues of the GM-fed animals were found. The images, with explanations, can be seen in the published study.

Cuts to Pay, Benefits Leave Some Troops Feeling ‘Betrayed’

 

The Pentagon is looking to sharply slash troop benefits in its new budget, which would be in effect from 2016-2020.

The Daily Caller reports that the previous lowering of a 1.8 percent pay raise to just one percent in the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act, a drop in housing allowances by five percent and an increase in co-pays for pharmaceuticals leaves “some troops (feeling) betrayed and frustrated, mainly because they’re just finished fighting the longest war in the nation’s history.”

Defense Department spokesman Navy Cmdr. Bill Urban told The Hill: “We have and will continue to look at ways to slow the growth of compensation. I would expect these efforts to continue to some degree in the 2016 Defense budget.”

The Great Firewall: China Permanently Shuts Down Google, Gmail and Other Services On Mainland

 

Google’s Gmail was blocked in China after months of disruptions to the world’s biggest email service, with an anti-censorship advocate suggesting the country’s “great firewall” was to blame.

Large numbers of Gmail web addresses were cut off in China on Friday, according to GreatFire.org, a China-based freedom of speech advocacy group. Users said the service was still down on Monday.

“I think the government is just trying to further eliminate Google’s presence in China and even weaken its market overseas,” said a member of the group who uses a pseudonym. “Imagine if Gmail users might not get through to Chinese clients. Many people outside China might be forced to switch away from Gmail.”

China has set up their own search engines and mail providers to allow the Chinese people to web surf and communicate without the US Government spying on them. Russia has also done this.

1000% Inflation in Venezuela?

 

Venezuela President Nicolas Maduro, set to announce a new currency system today, needs to devalue the bolivar or risk inflation passing 1,000 percent as soon as next year, according to Bank of America Corp. Under the current system, Venezuela’s overvalued bolivar means that the government effectively sells the dollars it gets from oil exports at a discount, compelling policy makers to print extra currency to cover domestic spending needs. Currency controls that limit Venezuelans’ access to dollars have spawned a black market in which the greenback fetches 172 bolivars, compared with officially sanctioned exchange rates that range from 6.3 to about 50 bolivars per dollar.

Why were 30 Ebola volunteers – including infected nurse – left to make their way home on the bus? ‘Shambolic’ screening revealed… as SECOND patient arrives at Aberdeen hospital

 

A doctor who sat next to a British nurse with Ebola on her flight home to the UK from Sierra Leone said today the ‘shambolic’ handling of her case could help the killer disease spread.

Dr Martin Deahl landed at Heathrow with Pauline Cafferkey and around 30 other NHS volunteers on Sunday but said staff testing them for Ebola ‘didn’t seem to know what they were doing’.

He also criticised Public Health England’s (PHE) rules on travel, which say ‘high risk’ medics returning from Ebola-hit regions should take public transport home but then avoid planes, trains and buses for three weeks after that.

Since then the authorities have been desperately trying to trace the 70 other people who were on board the same internal flight, and the 133 who were on her plane from Casablanca. Passengers on the plane will now be monitored by NHS officials via phone.

Worse than the dictators: Egypt’s leaders bring pillars of freedom crashing down

Egypt is enacting authoritarian laws at a rate unmatched by any regime for 60 years, legal specialists from four institutions have told the Guardian.

Since the overthrow of Mohamed Morsi in July 2013, Morsi’s successors in the presidency, Adly Mansour and Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, have used the absence of an elected parliament to almost unilaterally issue a series of draconian decrees that severely restrict freedom of expression, association and assembly.

This is NOT the outcome for which Egyptians were demonstrating not so long ago.

IT is, very much, however, the outcome preferred by both the US government and Israel, so that Egyptian governmental activities were “controllable”.

 

 

 

Key militant leader killed in U.S. air strike, Somalia says

The leader of a unit of the Somali militant group al Shabaab was killed by a U.S. air strike in Somalia, Somalia’s National Intelligence and Security Agency said on Tuesday.

“With the help of the Somali national security and intelligence agency and its U.S. counterpart, an al Shabaab leader was killed last night,” the security agency said in a statement.

The U.S. Defence Department said on Monday it had launched an air strike in Somalia that targeted a senior al Shabaab leader and was “assessing the results of the operation.”

The Somali statement said the leader, who it identified as Abdishakur, also known as Tahliil, was the head of Amniyat, an elite unit blamed for suicide attacks in the Somali capital, Mogadishu.

Only time will tell if this person was actually assassinated with these airstrikes.

But if one wonders precisely WHY the US is in Somalia, I would offer you the following reasons, as reported at :http://fortuneofafrica.com/somalia/2014/05/03/natural-resources-somalia/

The Fierce Encroachment of the Last Gasp of Darkness.

Happy New Year, my friends! May this coming year bring massive frustrations for The Overlords and a rapid diminishment of all of their powers and influence. May this new year bring a rising tide of awareness all along the river banks of this world. May our banks be flush with the currency of consciousness and may every dark dream die. May we rise to every occasion, as the light intensifies against the fierce encroachment of the last gasp of the darkness, that seeks to bury the common mind within it. That is not the fate I have chosen for myself, nor do I support that end for you. Let us always remember that beneath this blanketing curse of Materialism, there are many brave souls who labor in vineyards far and wide, seeking the unity of mind, which empowers our collective to resist the unhappy highways being built for our gridlock and demise.

Stunning data on average compensation for municipal employees in California

 

 

 

Do you know that, when you use any search engine to browse the web, that the results reveal about just 10-20% of the websites which are out there? There is much more which is hidden from web searches than is revealed and one way you can try to reveal all or some of the hidden sites is to use the Tor browser, which is a free download. When I advise this, I am not recommending you search for sites which are clearly illegal under most international jurisdictions. Your own knowledge of the Law and your common sense will automatically tell you which sites I refer to.

If you decide to use Tor, install it on an external hard drive using a USB port, which can be bought very cheaply these days and which have huge capacity. Many journos and whistle blowers use the Tor browser, as do some political entities such as security agencies. Your anonymity is guaranteed when using the Tor browser according to the user instructions.

Even if you are happy with the search results you get as things are for you, Tor browsing is the best known way of surfing the internet to keep your activities and data private.

28 Signs That U.S. Public Schools Are Rapidly Being Turned Into Indoctrination Centers And Prison Camps

It has been said that children are our future, and right now the vast majority of our children are being “educated” in public schools that are rapidly being turned into indoctrination centers and prison camps. Our children desperately need to focus on the basics such as reading, writing and math, but instead a whole host of politicians, “education officials” and teachers are constantly injecting as much propaganda as they possibly can into classroom instruction. Instead of learning how to think, our children are continually being told what to think. Not only that, our children are also being trained how to live as subservient slaves in a Big Brother police state. Today, nearly everything that children do in public schools is watched, monitored, recorded and tracked. Independent thought and free expression are greatly discouraged and are often cracked down upon harshly.

Had Mike and I had kids, we would have home schooled them, and if we lived in a non-friendly home school state, we would have moved to a state that was more home school friendly.

U.S. Citizens Continue to Infiltrate Eastern European Governments

The recent appointment of the austerity-loving U.S. citizen and investment firm chief Natalie Jaresko as Ukraine’s Finance Minister continues a trend that has seen one Eastern European country after another appointing or electing U.S. citizens as major government officials. Jaresko had Ukrainian citizenship conferred on her by Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko as she arrived in Kiev to take up her new post in the government of Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, himself a former legal U.S. resident who has been linked to the crypto-Satanic Church of Scientology.

New NSA leak reveals scope of agency’s war against crypto

?The National Security Agency boasts the ability to compromise computer protocols meant to encrypt private internet data, leaked documents have revealed. But the NSA has fallen short of totally winning its war against crypto.

Classified NSA files taken by former contractor Edward Snowden and published for the first time by Der Spiegel on Sunday reveal that, while the United States’ intelligence agency is indeed adept at cracking encryption, its efforts are no match when it comes to some of the more popular protocols used to keep communications private.

The last 6 NSA challenges Mike coded have yet to be broken.

So, even though the NSA boasts about seeing/hearing all of our communications, they really cannot and do not.

Mike and I have speculated that any agents tasked with following our cybertrails have been given that task as punishment duty.

As a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, and participates in community charities, I must be a very dull read! :-)

And Mike, as a truth-teller, who also never advocates violence, could never possibly construed as a “threat” by any thinking person.

 

 

 

Russia, Japan likely to cooperate in creating Eurasian Economic Corridor

Russia and Japan have perfect chances to take their cooperation in eastern Siberia and the Far East to a new level in 2015 if they set up the so-called Eurasian corridor, MP Yukio Hatoyama, an important figure in the ruling Liberal Democratic Party, said in an interview with TASS on Tuesday.

“This concept is very topical in spite of all the current difficulties,” said Hatoyama who has more than once occupied important governmental positions throughout his political career.

He is president of the Japan-Russia Society, which unites the activists of different political forces, as well as large and medium-sized businesses.

IF realized, this could offer tremendous economic benefits to both countries.

 

 

 

Ukraine in ‘full-blown financial crisis’ – National Bank head

Ukraine’s GDP shrank by 7.5 percent from January till November 2014, as foreign exchange reserves fell to their lowest level since 2009, and inflation jumped to 21 percent by November, admits the head of the Ukraine’s National Bank, Valeriya Gontareva.

The country’s foreign exchange reserves shrank to $9.9 billion, as Kiev gave Naftogaz an estimated $8.6 billion to buy gas and settle state guaranteed Eurobonds. $3.1 billion went to settle the debt with Russia’s Gazprom, Gontareva explained.

Even if you’re not guilty, you can still be sent to jail if you’re too poor to pay “court costs”

Cities across the country are increasingly turning to what are known as private probation companies to collect unpaid fines. But are indigent people ending up in jail because they can’t afford to pay? Since NewsHour Weekend’s first story on this issue aired last spring, the Childersburg Municipal Court issued a “standing order” stating that “In no case shall an indigent defendant be incarcerated … based solely on his or her inability to pay fines.” But the practice continues elsewhere in the country. Special correspondent John Carlos Frey takes an in-depth look at what some are calling the return of the debtors’ prison.

Video Didn’t Save Eric Garner, Body Cameras Won’t Save You – Guillermo Jimenez

snip: In other words, the message from the judicial system over the years has been clear: if you wear a badge and kill someone, the odds of being punished are slim to none.

We’ve now reached the point in 2014 when a police officer can choke a man to death on camera, in broad daylight, and before witnesses, and the court decides it’s not even worth the effort of a trial.

FBI forensic lab misconduct could affect 2,600 convictions, 45 death row cases

Nearly every criminal case the FBI and US Justice Department has reviewed during a major investigation that began in 2012 regarding an FBI lab unit has involved flawed forensic testimony, The Washington Post reported.

The review – originally spurred by a Post report in 2012 over flawed forensic testimony by Federal Bureau of Investigation lab technicians that may have led to convictions of hundreds of innocent people – was cut short last August when its findings “troubled the bureau,” according to the Post. The review was ordered by the Justice Department (DOJ) to resume this month, government officials said.

Back in 1995, the head of the FBI’s own crime lab, Dr. Frederick Whitehurst, blew the whistle on the FBI lab’s malpractice, which included rigging lab test results to help gain convictions. The FBI retaliated against Whitehurst, demoting him to the paint chip lab. Whitehurst eventually left the FBI in 1998 with a $1.1 million settlement, and a Presidential Executive Order by George Bush protecting government whistleblowers (President Clinton rescinded portions of that EO following the shoot down of TWA 800).

It would appear that the FBI did not learn any lessons as they are apparently still using the laboratory, not to find the truth, but to score points on a convictions scoreboard!

Issues of race and police — as with most things these days — are deeply divisive.

Gold Held In NY Fed Vault Drops To Lowest In 21st Century After Biggest Monthly Withdrawal Since 2001

Exactly one month ago we observed that, as expected in the aftermath of the Netherlands’ shocking and still not fully-explained gold repatriation from the NY Fed, the amount of foreign earmarked gold on deposit with the Fed had just experienced a 42 ton withdrawal: the single largest outflow of gold held at the NY Fed in over a decade, going back all the way to 2001.

This had brought the total amount of YTD gold withdrawals from the NY Fed to a whopping 119 tons: the most since the Lehman collapse.

However, because this total was insufficient to cover just the Dutch repatriation of gold from the NY Fed (which amounted to 122 tons), we knew there would be more activity when the November data hit.

BBC documentary criticising the Royals postponed after Clarence House intervention

A BBC documentary which is potentially critical of the Prince of Wales has been postponed following an alleged intervention by Clarence House.

Reinventing the Royals, which was due to air on Sunday, investigates the methods used by the Prince to boost his image following the death of Diana, Princess of Wales and to integrate the then Camilla Parker Bowles into palace life – a campaign dubbed ‘Operation Mrs PB’.

It also claims the young Prince William felt he had been “used to further his father’s interests” after news of his first, private, meeting with his future stepmother was leaked to the media.

The BBC said the documentary had been postponed to resolve issues surrounding archive footage, but the Radio Times said Clarence House had intervened to halt the programme.

Economic Terrorism Against Russia Intensifies

Jeff Nielson: The Russian ruble fell a further 7% Monday. What is the “reason” cited in the Corporate media for this latest, further plunge in its “value” (i.e. exchange rate)? An “economic report” which shows that Russia’s economy is shrinking. Here we see the pattern of the economic terrorism perpetrated by the One Bank exposed.

In 2010; the One Bank decided to destroy the economy of Greece. It did so for several reasons. It wanted to “make an example” of Greece for all the other European governments to see. This was deemed essential when (tiny) Iceland successfully broke-free of the control of this crime syndicate after the Crash of ‘08, and reclaimed its own sovereignty. It was not about to allow other European governments to follow that example, and begin to assert their own independence.

Oil Firms Pull Back on Rigs as Prices Fall

U.S. oil producers appear to be scaling back amid low crude prices, with the onshore drilling-rig count falling by 37 last week, according to oil-field services company Baker Hughes Inc.

It was the third consecutive week the drilling rig count fell and one of the biggest since crude-oil prices started to tumble in June. Analysts say energy companies operating in the U.S. will need slow their oil production to help bolster international crude prices.

US Military Stockpiling “Massive Amounts” Of Gear Near Iraq

Since June, the U.S. military has been slowly stockpiling massive amounts of its gear coming out of Afghanistan at a depot in Kuwait adjacent to a bustling commercial port, in preparation for ultimately shipping it across the border into Iraq for an allied offensive against the Islamic State group, US News reports. Air Force Maj. Gen. Rowayne “Wayne” Schatz admitted, “from June to December, we’ve worked a lot on moving items into Kuwait,” including 3,100 vehicles, most of them MRAPs. While the military stands by President Barack Obama’s repeated pledge that he will not put U.S. combat forces on the ground, an increasing number of U.S. troops has slowly trickled back into Iraq.

USAID Will Continue It’s ‘Democracy’ Program in Cuba

As the UK completes another military and political retreat from Afghanistan, it is time to revisit one of the most potent myths of the British Empire: the arrival at Jalalabad of Surgeon Brydon, wounded and on a shot-up dying nag, as the sole survivor of the Army of the Indus. It is a romantic scene that has been lovingly painted by scores of historians – and of course in a famous painting by Lady Butler. But behind the myth, and never properly recorded by historians, is a disgraceful story of British officers leaving their men to die.

WHO IS THE THREAT TO WORLD PEACE? CHRISTIANS, JEWS, OR MUSLIMS (The US, Israel, or Iran)!

Since the 1979 Iranian revolution and the downfall of the US Puppet Ruler the Shah, Iran has been an Islamic state. In that interval of time, 1979 to the present, Iran has not invaded anyone. Not once. In fact Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another nation in 200 years. War is not their nature. People of all religions live in peace in Iran, even Jews, who find life so comfortable in Iran they refused an offer by the government of Israel to emigrate!

I am reposting this article because as word comes down that Obama may reopen the US embassy in Tehran, the promoters of war are already screaming again that Iran is just two months away from a nuclear bomb, a claim they have been making since the 1980s, even though the IAEA acknowledges that Iran has complied with the preliminary P5+1 agreement regarding their nuclear technology.

The Outlook for the New Year — Paul Craig Roberts

Hillary Clinton called Putin the new Hitler. While Washington incorporates former constituent parts of the Russian and Soviet empires into its own empire and bombs seven countries, Washington claims that Putin is militarily aggressive and intends to reconstitute the Soviet empire. Washington arms the neo-nazi regime Obama established in Ukraine, while erroneously claiming that Putin has invaded and annexed Ukrainian provinces. All of these blatant lies are echoed repeatedly by the Western presstitutes. Not even Hitler had such a compliant media as Washington has.

Judge Posner’s One-Way Mirror

Now, as reported by Glenn Greenwald, federal judge Richard Posner has come forward to tell us that that is exactly how things should be. “Like so many federal judges,” writes Greenwald, “Judge Posner recognizes rights only when they belong to agents of the state or the economic elite. When it’s ordinary citizens at issue, he snidely rejects any such protections. Of course, this is exactly backwards: those exercising public power (police officers) have a lower entitlement to privacy than private individuals. But power-servants like Judge Posner view only actors of the state and those who serve it (such as himself) as entitled to these prerogatives. That’s become the corrupt essence of the U.S. justice system, and it’s perfectly expressed by Judge Posner’s radically divergent views based on whose privacy is at stake.”

The access, mandated by a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court warrant, was part of the NSA’s PRISM program and allowed “sustained Skype collection” in real time from specific users identified by their Skype user names.

AirAsia Plane Debris and Bodies Are Found in Search

Indonesian television showed a rescuer descending from a helicopter toward a corpse, which like other bodies found was not wearing a life jacket.

The Indonesian authorities said the pieces of wreckage were found about 60 miles southeast of the last known position of the plane — the opposite direction from the plane’s path, a fact that was not explained.

The absence of life jackets suggests that something sudden happened to the aircraft, leaving no time for the passengers to prepare for a water landing. The claim that the debris was found 60 miles to the southeast of the aircraft’s last known position appears to be an error, with AirAsia giving the number as only 6 miles.

UPDATE: The New York Times is stating the 60 mile figure.

It Wasn’t North Korea Or Russia: Sony Hack “Perpetrator” Said To Be Laid-Off, Disgruntled Employee

First it was, with “absolute certainly”, North Korea. Then, out of the blue, an even more ridiculous theory emerged about the origin of the Sony hackers: Russia. Now, we finally get the truth, and as it turns out it was neither of the abovementioned sovereign actors who had nothing better to do than to hack movie scripts and racist emails: it was Sony’s own disgruntled worker who was the source of the hack. According to Politico, FBI agents investigating the Sony Pictures hack were briefed Monday by a security firm that says its research points to laid-off Sony staff, not North Korea, as the perpetrator.

“Researchers from the cyber intelligence company Norse have said their own investigation into the data on the Sony attack doesn’t point to North Korea at all and instead indicates some combination of a disgruntled employee and hackers for piracy groups is at fault.”

Jimmy Carter: From Nobel Prize to ‘Terrorist’ Ties

After losing the White House to Republican Ronald Reagan in 1980, Carter established the Carter Center two years later with his wife, Rosalynn, to continue his global humanitarian work.

He won his own Nobel prize in 2002 for his human-rights work. Carter turned 90 on Oct. 1.

But those years have also seen Carter voicing strong anti-Israel views and support for terrorist groups. His 2006 book — “Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid” — came under widespread attack for asserting that Israel’s settlement on Palestinian land was the main impediment to peace in the Middle East.

He also has met with leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and has accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of being too eager to go to war with Iran over its nuclear ambitions.

Note how a President is lauded as long as he serves Israel, but when he rightly criticizes Israel, he is labeled a supporter of terrorism!

Penn group nixes Chris Hedges as speaker following Israel-ISIS comparison

Former New York Times Middle East bureau chief Chris Hedges said he was disinvited to speak at a University of Pennsylvania conference following a column comparing Israel to ISIS.

Hedges, now a columnist for the Truthdig.com website, was to speak at an April forum on prospects for peace in the Middle East sponsored by the university’s International Affairs Association.

Zachary Michael Belnavis, a student leader of the association, wrote to the lecture agency that his group didn’t see Hedges as a “suitable fit” for the conference.

“We’re saying this in light of a recent article he’s written in which he compares the organization ISIS to Israel (here’s the article in question),” Belnavis wrote. “In light of this comparison, we don’t believe he would be suitable to a co-existence speaker based on this stance he’s taken.”

ISIL militants equipped with US anti-tank missiles: Report

The ISIL Takfiri group has released a photo showing one of its members preparing to launch a US-made TOW anti-tank missile against rival terrorists in Syria’s strategic and mountainous Qalamoun region along the border with Lebanon.

Saudi Arabia targets American natural gas

Low oil prices are threatening the future of the US’ fracking and natural gas industries. Many experts suspect that Saudi Arabia is keeping prices artificially low to damage the growing American energy sector, but in the short-term, consumers are buying astonishingly cheap gas. Marin Katusa, author of “The Colder War,” explains.

Meet the Falics: West Bank settlement funders, Netanyahu backers, and owners of Duty Free America

The name Sheldon Adelson, the right-wing, pro-Israel casino mogul who has bankrolled the Republican Party, rings a bell for close observers of American politics. But how about the Falic family?

The Falics should be just as well known. Members of the family have donated millions of dollars to pro-Israel U.S. politicians from both parties. Beneficiaries of their largesse include GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney; Democrats Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Eliot Engel; the Republican National Committee; and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. In addition, the family has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s political campaigns.

They have made their money through Duty Free America, which operates stores in airports around the U.S and the world where consumers buy tax-free products.

Rise of Spanish populists overturns two-party system

The sudden rise of a new anti-establishment party has transformed Spanish politics a year before a general election, forcing the center-right government to veer away from austerity and the left-leaning opposition to scramble for new leaders.

In just a year since its founding, the party “Podemos” – We Can – has overturned the two party system in place since Spain embraced democracy in the 1970s. It is now polling around even with the ruling People’s Party (PP) and main opposition Socialists, and has even led in some polls.

President Obama Defends Iran Nuclear Deal to Israeli Policy Forum

President Obama said today “We don’t know yet” whether the agreement reached with Iran last month will succeed in keeping the country from producing nuclear weapons, but he asserted that there are “unprecedented” fail-safe mechanisms to keep the agreement from failing, as others have in the past.

The president defended the deal today at a Mideast policy conference, where he was asked what made the sweeping, if tentative pact — which Israel opposed — “different” from the failed nuclear agreements pursued by Presidents Reagan with Pakistan and Clinton with North Korea.

“Well, we don’t know yet. We don’t know yet.” Obama said at the Brookings Institute’s Saban Forum. “I think it’s important for everybody to understand: This is hard, because the technology of the nuclear cycle you can get off the Internet. The knowledge of creating a nuclear weapon is already out there.”

This is getting interesting. It looks like Israel’s push for a US invasion of Iran is starting to falter!

UPDATE: FOX News is pushing the claim that Iran could build a nuclear bomb in as little as two months. The US media and Israel have been making that claim since the 1980s.

 

 

 

IAEA: Iran honoring nuclear deal with P5+1

Iran is honoring the interim nuclear agreement reached last year with the P5+1 world powers, according to a confidential International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report.

The document, obtained by Reuters Friday, showed that Tehran was not enriching uranium above a five percent concentration, and that it has not made “any further advances” at two enrichment facilities and a heavy water reactor which was under construction.

The US committed to reducing sanctions against Iran, but has failed to do so, and pro-Israel congressmen are preparing to pass more sanctions against Iran next month, even though the P5+1 talks are continuing, and as IAEA points out, Iran is keeping their promises.

Obama Won’t Rule Out Re-Opening US Embassy In Iran

President Barack Obama is open to the idea of opening an embassy in Tehran within the final two years of his term.

You don’t suppose Obama, no longer able to run and not needing Israel’s support any more, has gotten fed up with Netanyahu?

Washington Post Insists: Private Gun Ownership Makes Police Less Safe

Washington DC – -(Ammoland.com)- On December 22 2014, The Washington Post (WaPo) claimed private gun ownership makes police less safe.

With this assertion, the WaPo joined other reactionaries–like the NAACP and Everytown for Gun Control –who have politicized the heinous attack on two NYPD officers for their own gun control purposes.

War Is A Racket By Marine Corps Major General Smedley Butler (Twice awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor)

“I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts.

This is posted for David in Florida, who called into the radio show yesterday. I presume that as a loyal Marine, he will listen to another Marine, especially a highly decorated one who outranks him. The quote above is not actually from Butler’s “War is a Racket” but a summation he wrote for an article in “Common Sense” magazine in 1935.

Desmond Tutu: ‘Put Tony Blair in the dock for war crimes’

Groomed by the intelligence services from his early college days, he didn’t bat an eyelid while lying to his electorate – and to the world about fictional WMD’s in Iraq, and he dazzled George W. Bush with his alluring pillow talk, used his cozy globalist-appointed positions and high-flying (albeit meaningless) titles to broker deals for JP Morgan investment elite, while he creates wonderous business opportunities on the backs of the world’s poor – he is the world’s most hated man, and he doesn’t drink Dos Equis (but he does drinks Cristal).

Certainly, it’s a charmed life for the man with the fake smile. Recently, 21WIRE reported how he caused a PR meltdown at the international children’s charity, Save the Children, after someone tried to him a “Global Legacy Award” (spooky). The charity are now deeply regretting that move, calling the whole affair ‘a painful experience’.

Ukraine Reactor Leak Coverup: Chernobyl 2.0

The Cartel: How BP Used a Secret Chat Room for Insider Tips

Halfway down a muddy, secluded road on marshland in suburban Essex sits Wharf Pool, a lake stocked with some of the biggest freshwater fish you will ever see.

A white sign with red lettering reads: “Private Syndicate: Strictly Members Only.” A metal gate, a barbed-wire fence and two CCTV cameras bar the way. Anglers hoping to spend time on the lake’s carefully tended banks must join a waiting list. Those who make it to the top pay a membership fee that buys them the chance to catch a carp that weighs more than a Jack Russell. There are hundreds of them swimming beneath the surface. It’s close to shooting fish in a barrel.

Man Says Cops Beat Him for Bicycle Violation

San Francisco Police dragged a college student from his house and beat him unconscious without a warrant or probable cause, because he had ridden his bicycle on the sidewalk, the man claims in court.

D’Paris Charles Williams, 21, sued the city and three police officers on Dec. 23 in Federal Court.

Williams, who is African-American, says he had just biked home from a Make-A-Wish Foundation event at about 3:30 p.m. on Nov. 15, 2013 and walked into his home on Maxwell Street.

No sooner had he entered him home than he heard someone say, “Come here,” Williams says.

NYPD Has Gotten Paranoid After Executions, Letting Minor Crimes Go

“I’m not writing any summonses. Do you think I’m going to stand there so someone can shoot me or hit me in the head with an ax?” One cop said Sunday, referring to the Dec. 20 slayings and another recent attack on the NYPD.

“I’m concerned about my safety,” the cop added. “I want to go to home to my wife and kids.”

An NYPD supervisor noted, “My guys are writing almost no summonses, and probably only making arrests when they have to — like when a store catches a shoplifter.”

And the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association directive for cops to respond with at least two patrol cars has resulted in a manpower shortage that’s delaying response times to non-emergencies — such as burglaries or car crashes without injuries — to as much as four hours, sources said.

Isolated Incidents? A Lawsuit is Filed Against the NYPD Every 2 1/2 Hours

New York City comptroller, Scott Stringer, recently released a map of all lawsuits filed against the NYPD in 2013. This graphic representation of police misconduct was then analyzed and compiled into a compelling report which illustrates the dire need of reform.

The report put out by the comptroller’s officer, titled Claimstat, shows that the lawsuits are derived “primarily of allegations of police misconduct, civil rights violations, and injury and/or damage from accidents involving police vehicles.” The report was put out in July and is used as a way of using data-driven methods to try and save money.

However, it doesn’t look like counting the incidents of police brutality is doing anything to save the city money, as Stringer’soriginal report said that the 2015 budget would have to include $674 million for settlements and judgments (an amount greater that the budget for the Parks Department, Department of Aging and New York Public Library combined).

 

 

 

Euro slides to 2-year low on Greek election fear

The dollar gained ground on the euro and the Japanese yen Monday, with the European single currency trading at a two-year low as Greece prepares for snap elections on a tide of voter resentment against the terms of the country’s international bailout.

The leading candidate in the coming Greece elections is anti-ECB and anti-austerity. The last time such a candidate ran for office in Greece there was massive election fraud, but this time the Greek voters are so overwhelming against the central bank, election rigging may not prevail. Assuming this candidate is not shot out of the running (Like Robert Kennedy), a win could well mean Greece leaving the EU and defaulting on its debt. That in turn would trigger the credit default swaps sold by Wall Street against Greece’s debt. The Wall Street corporations which sold those swaps do not have the cash reserves to pay the claims, which means the Federal Government will insist the American taxpayer cover the losses, in true fascist economic method. I hope the American people will tell the Federal Government that We The People will not pay for Wall Street’s bad business decisions any longer.

 

 

 

The Renewed Push For Deeper North American Integration

Dana Gabriel
Activist Post

The globalist plan to incrementally merge the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union has been ongoing for years. While at times the agenda appears to have seemingly stalled, current efforts to expand the trilateral partnership show that it is alive and once again gaining steam. With NAFTA as the foundation, the renewed push for deeper North American integration continues on many different fronts…

New Snowden Documents Reveal Wider Net of NATO ‘Kill List’ Targets

Newly revealed documents show that NATO’s “kill list” for Afghanistan operations included not just senior Taliban leaders but those suspected of being low- and mid-level operatives as well as drug traffickers, Der Spiegel has reported.

Some of the secret documents, which are from 2009 to 2011, are from the trove released by Edward Snowden, the German paper states. “The documents show that the deadly missions were not just viewed as a last resort to prevent attacks, but were in fact part of everyday life in the guerrilla war in Afghanistan,”Der Spiegel reports.

American helicopters drop boxes of weapons in ISIL-held areas in Iraq; US previously airdropped weapons captured by ISIL in Syria

Volunteer forces fighting against the ISIL Takfiri terrorists say US military aircraft have dropped weapons in areas held by the terrorist group in Iraq. American helicopters dropped boxes of weapons in Yathrib and Balad districts in Iraq’s Salahuddin Province, according to the fighters. The report comes as the Iraqi army and volunteer fighters appear to be gaining the upper hand and making significant gains against ISIL. In October, a video showed the terrorist group captured a bundle of US weapons airdropped in the Syrian border town of Kobani. [Notice that whenever I-CIA-SIS is poised to lose an area, its US handlers immediately spring to the rescue? ISIS is a CIA/MOSSAD Frankenstein.]

Someone in China warned of a AirAisa disaster 13 days before QZ8501 disappeared.

There is a post on some Chinese forum that is blowing up right now because apparently a user 13 days ago made a post warning people not to go on AirAsia Airline. He explained that the people that brought down MH370 is going to target another Malaysian airline to destroy Malaysia’s Air travel industry or something like that and it all has something to do with the US (my Chinese is a bit rusty).

Malaysia angered Israel by launching their War Crimes Commission back in 2007, and undertaking cases which for political reasons had stalled in the ICC and the UN, including war crimes charges against Israel for genocide of the Palestinians. So the idea of a payback by wrecking their airline industry is not without merit.

New documents reveal which encryption tools the NSA couldn’t crack

Not every service fared so well. Following a particular file across the web is marked as “trivial,” while decrypting emails sent through the Russian mail service “Mail.ru” is marked as “moderate.” Virtual private networks also offer little protection: documents show the NSA planning the capacity to surveil 20,000 VPN connections per hour. Perhaps most alarming, the NSA seems to have completely circumvented the HTTPS system, which is used to secure connections between websites and browsers. By late 2012, the agency expected to be able to intercept 10 million HTTPS connections per day.

The most secure communications are obtained by creating your own system of encryption which the NSA does not know. Breaking an encrypted message requires two steps. First you have to find the encryption method, then the keys. Of the two, the first is by far the hardest. The allies were unable to break the German Enigma code until they captured an actual machine. Only then could they brute-force the actual message keys. If you are using the known encryption systems such as PGP, the bad guys already have the method, and enough supercomputers to find the keys. But if you develop your own encryption method, no amount of computer power will be able to read the message as long as NSA does not know that method. As we demonstrated with our six NSA challenges, anyone with a modicum of code writing skill can create new methods that will defeat the bad guys’ attempts to peek into your private business affairs and steal your secrets for their own personal gain (as they have been caught doing).

A 25-year-old black man killed in a fight with Los Angeles police was shot three times in his right side, right arm and back, an autopsy report released Monday states.

The autopsy involving Ezell Ford was disclosed after police initially ordered the Los Angeles County coroner’s office to withhold the results for months to avoid tainting potential witness statements.

Ford was unarmed when police confronted him on a street near his home Aug. 11. Police said officers tried to speak to him but got into a struggle with Ford and shot him when he tried to grab an officer’s gun.

Also, if both these projects are allowed to continue too long then it will give America’s international rivals time to erode away the still considerable technological lead in space technology that the US now enjoys.

‘Dont Track Me Act’ Forbids Road Usage Charge, RFID: “Vehicle owners must not be required to surrender their Fourth Amendment rights and be tracked everywhere”

While one group of bipartisan ghouls has proposed an 85% increase in the federal fuel tax and an eventual road usage charge-per-mile tax, a Republican congressman from Texas has introduced the ‘Don’t Track Me Act,’ (H.R. 5884) to forbid such a measure. Rep. Steve Stockman introduced the bill, which states “The existing gas tax is a rare example of a user fee, whereby vehicle owners pay for the roads they use when purchasing fuel. The tax has successfully provided necessary funding for many decades… It is the purpose of this Act to prohibit the replacement or supplementation of the Federal gasoline excise tax with any tax or fee based upon vehicle location or distance traveled, whether determined by global positioning satellite (GPS), license plate reading cameras or any other method of determining owner registration or identity information, and vehicle location or distance traveled.”

Hacker clones a politician’s fingerprint using normal, long-distance public photos

We’re not talking about some close-up macro photo, either: If you can snap a photo of a celebrity or politician waving their hand, that would probably be enough. In this case, the member of the CCC managed to get the fingerprint of Germany’s defense minister Ursula von der Leyen from a photo taken a press conference — which, if the German government uses biometric access control systems, could be a bit of a security breach.

 

 

 

Palestinians to push ahead with UN resolution

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas told US Secretary of State John Kerry he would press ahead with a resolution calling for a peace deal with Israel within a year with an “end to occupation” of Palestinian territories by late 2017, state news agency WAFA reported.

The revised resolution calls for occupied East Jerusalem to be the capital of Palestine, an end to Israeli settlement building and settling the issue of Palestinian prisoner releases.

Arab UN delegations meeting in New York on Monday endorsed the proposal.

Dina Kawar, Jordan’s UN Ambassador and the sole Arab representative on the UN Security Council, said the revised text would be submitted to the council later on Monday.

“Defendants entered in a multi-year conspiracy, meeting in groups separately and together, to commit fraud and terrorism, i.e., to brainwash the public into thinking a lone gunman drill known as the “Sandy Hook Massacre” was real, when in fact it was a staged FEMA Exercise ….. These crimes were undertaken with the intent of subverting the US Constitution and to affect national, state and local laws. This fraud involved lying to the public, faking news, publishing one-sided news reports, censoring reality, suppressing facts, and deliberately skewing the news to shift public perceptions.”

Libya has experienced several waves of violence in recent years, violence that has caused periodic disruptions in Libya’s oil sector.

Two more ministers accused in the VIP child abuse scandal: MP wants Secrets Act lifted to let police speak out

The latest phase in his search for the truth about a suspected Westminster child sex ring came as he called for retired detectives to be granted an unprecedented amnesty from the Official Secrets Act to help lift the lid on alleged VIP abusers.

United Airlines sues entrepreneur, 22, for tip website on how to score cheap flights

United Airlines and Orbitz have filed a civil lawsuit against a 22-year-old New Yorker for running a website that searches for the cheapest flights available using a loophole called hidden city ticketing.

Aktarer Zaman, who founded Skiplagged.com last year, says he isn’t doing anything illegal by exposing an “inefficiency” in airline pricing, a local Fox affiliate reported.

The idea of hidden city ticketing is to buy a one-way airline ticket that has a layover at your actual destination and then ditching the last leg of the trip. For instance, if you want to fly from New York to San Francisco, you would book your flight from New York to Lake Tahoe, with a layover in San Francisco, and then get off there, the Fox affiliate reported.

All-out war is coming to Libya, as rebel militias and a government-in-hiding begin a battle for control of the country.

Zeina, 27, was hanging out her washing when the first Grad rocket smashed into a neighbor’s house at the end of her dusty street. The deafening boom was followed by the telltale buzz of more incoming rockets. Libya’s civil war had landed on her doorstep.

“It started as a normal day — then we heard the sound of shelling and rockets,” said the young mother. “Without warning, they hit our houses. We fled with just the clothes we were wearing.”

Zeina is now crammed together with seven other people in a cinderblock outhouse that is part of Tripoli’s zoo. They are just a handful of the more than 400,000 people who are currently displaced inside Libya, which is witnessing its worst crisis since the 2011 NATO-backed revolt that toppled dictator Muammar Qaddafi.

Physicist and engineer Frank Trunk made the allegations in a federal complaint, originally filed under seal, against U.S. Navy Secretary Raymond Mabus, Energy Secretary Dr. Ernest Moniz, Defense Secretary Charles Hagel and Michelle Lee, the deputy director of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Trunk says he made his breakthroughs in 1993, filing for patents for inventions involving aircraft and ship stealth technology, submarine stealth technology and nuclear-weapon designs.

“Those applications describe fundamental breakthroughs in physics and material science that according to one senior Navy scientist ‘are the sort of thing Nobel prizes are made of,'” the Dec. 8 complaint states.

 

 

 

Civil Asset Forfeiture: The Final Stage Of Collapse Of Empire

Philadelphia prosecutors agreed last Thursday to halt efforts to seize the homes of two of the lead plaintiffs in a widely publicized federal suit challenging the city’s use of civil forfeiture laws in drug cases.

Philadelphia drops a Civil Asset Forfeiture case to prevent any court from ruling just seizing people’s property is unconstitutional. Phily.COM has reported the case of Christos Sourovelis and Doila Welch,who were both caught up in having their homes seized to pay police pensions when the police arrested a relative they claimed was dealing drugs on their properties. Today, you basically have to shun relatives and never pick up a hick-hiker in trouble for if they have any drugs, even marijuana, there goes your assets.

Russia says to supply coal, electricity to Ukraine

Russia has agreed on a new deal to supply coal and electricity to Ukraine, which is struggling with a lack of raw fuel for power plants due to a separatist conflict in the industrial east, Russian officials said on Saturday.

The move comes a day after Kiev said it would suspend train and bus services to Crimea, effectively creating a transportation blockade to and from the region annexed by Moscow in March this year. Kiev has briefly cut off electricity to Crimea before.

Breaking: Healthcare Worker in Scotland Diagnosed with Ebola

A day after flying home to Glasgow from Sierra Leone, a healthcare worker has been diagnosed with Ebola, the Scottish government reported today.

The patient, who is said to be female, will be transferred to a high-level isolation unit in London’s Royal Free hospital.

While reporting on the dangerous virus in the US has quelled, the threat has far from ended: the number of Ebola cases in the three most impacted countries has passed 20,000, with 7,842 reported deaths so far.

The Prison State of America

Prisons employ and exploit the ideal worker. Prisoners do not receive benefits or pensions. They are not paid overtime. They are forbidden to organize and strike. They must show up on time. They are not paid for sick days or granted vacations. They cannot formally complain about working conditions or safety hazards. If they are disobedient, or attempt to protest their pitiful wages, they lose their jobs and can be sent to isolation cells. The roughly 1 million prisoners who work for corporations and government industries in the American prison system are models for what the corporate state expects us all to become. And corporations have no intention of permitting prison reforms that would reduce the size of their bonded workforce. In fact, they are seeking to replicate these conditions throughout the society.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron.” — Dwight D. Eisenhower

LYING ON FACEBOOK MAY IMPLANT FALSE MEMORIES

Wild footage captures the moment diners batter man with chairs at Chicago’s Rock N Roll McDonald’s

There was chaos at a flagship McDonald’s in Chicago in the early hours of Saturday when a mass brawl broke out.

The Rock N Roll McDonald’s is one of the fast food chain’s most famous locations in the world and a popular tourist attraction in the city.

The violent incident was captured on cell phone footage which was later posted on YouTube.

The Insidious Response from SC Officers Who Tased Autistic Man

The mostly non-verbal autistic man is doing what the neighborhood and cops have known 34 year-old Tario Anderson to do forever – walk. Walk up and down the sidewalks of Greenville’s Sullivan and Burns Sts. repeatedly.

That’s what he was doing when an officer tased him and a swarm of officers made a drawn out arrest. They pretended not to hear the desperate cries of neighbors alerting the police to his condition. They are requiring him to face two charges, stemming from their incident, in court on January 9th.

Missing QZ 8501 AirAsia flight: Crowded airspace forced it to fly at low altitude, disappear

The plane sought permission to climb above threatening clouds. Air traffic control couldn’t say yes immediately – there was no room. Six other commercial airliners were crowding the surrounding airspace, forcing AirAsia Flight 8501 to remain at a lower altitude.

Minutes later, the jet carrying 162 people was gone from the radar. No distress signal was issued. It is believed to have crashed into Indonesia’s Java Sea on Sunday morning, but exactly what happened – and whether the plane’s flight path played any role – won’t be determined until after the aircraft is found.

Vermont Yankee is the fifth American reactor forced shut in the last two years.

 

 

 

7 Reasons the TSA Sucks (A Security Expert’s Perspective)

Email

For a bunch of people in snappy uniforms patting down crotches, the TSA is remarkably unpopular. Nobody likes going through security at the airport, but you probably figured most of it had a point. All those hours spent in line with other shoeless travelers are a necessary precursor to safe flying. It’s annoying, but at least it wards off terrorism.

That’s all bullshit. The TSA couldn’t protect you from a 6-year-old with a water balloon. What are my qualifications for saying that? My name is Rafi Sela, and I was the head of security for the world’s safest airport. Here’s what your country does wrong.

Did Bad Weather Bring Down Air Asia 8501?

In the Air France disaster, the pilots had been flying a larger airplane—an Airbus A330—and, like the AirAsia pilots, they had spotted a large storm system ahead of them, towering over their flight path. Knowing that storm systems of this kind contain strong updrafts and downdrafts—one following another—the Air France pilots made a course change but the thunderheads were far too high to avoid.

Yet it wasn’t actually the weather that triggered the sequence of events that led to the loss of the Air France airplane. Because of a design flaw, airspeed instruments iced up, fed false readings to the computers controlling the flight, and the computers shut down. Left to fly the Airbus manually, the pilots mishandled the controls and instead of stabilizing the airplane, destabilized it and never regained control until it hit the Atlantic—in one piece—at the huge velocity of 11,000 feet per minute.

Many observers have commented that pilots are over-dependent on their automated flight systems, such as the one which led to the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 striking the edged of the runway in San Francisco in 2013. If the flight systems mess up, bad things happen if the flight crew cannot handle the aircraft with old fashioned “seat of the pants” piloting.

David Bird, Missing Wall Street Journal Reporter, Foresaw an Oil Crash

On the cold, wintry afternoon of January 11, 2014, David Bird, a reporter who covered energy markets for the Wall Street Journal, told his wife he was going out for a walk and left his home in Long Hill, New Jersey in a red jacket with yellow zippers. Despite his colorful attire, the involvement of hundreds of volunteers, law enforcement officials, and the FBI in the search, Bird has vanished without a trace.

As Wall Street On Parade previously reported in January, for the three months prior to his disappearance, Bird was reporting on a supply glut and growing stockpiles of oil. A newly retrieved article by Bird that appeared on line at the Wall Street Journal on August 21, 2013, shows the reporter had also presciently made an early connection between the Federal Reserve ending its massive bond-buying program known as “quantitative easing” and a potential crash in the price of oil – a crash that has now cut the price of oil almost in half in the past six months.

Intelligence Officials Say Obama Nominee Stole CIA Documents

The Obama administration’s nominee for a senior legal position at the Pentagon is one of the congressional staffers accused by Republicans and intelligence officials of stealing classified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, Fox News has learned — and the controversy could imperil her shot at a major career promotion.

Sources on Capitol Hill and in the intelligence community say Alissa Starzak, a majority staffer on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) who has been nominated for the position of general counsel to the U.S. Army, is one of two SSCI employees accused by the panel’s Republicans, and by career intelligence officers, of having “stolen” the so-called Panetta Review: a classified study of the agency’s treatment of detainees prepared by former CIA Director Leon Panetta.

Estonia offers e-residency to foreigners

On 21 October, Estonia’s parliament unanimously voted to extend national digital e-residency rights to foreigners by the end of the year. With this e-residency programme, the least populous country in Europe, of 1.3 million people, intends to attract around 10 million “digital citizens” by 2025.

Estonians say their open and online culture – 77% of the population has internet access – is behind this experiment on a state level, and there has been little controversy over the move. After all, this is the country which created Skype.

From Talinn’s point of view, it hopes that foreign citizens will be encouraged to open an online business in the Estonian domain. Authorities say with their online system, applications can be processed in as little as 18 minutes.

WOW!!:-) Instead of making it harder to do business, the Estonian government is making it easier to do business here!!.

 

 

 

The More The Merrier

The Republican presidential nominee is likely to win the White House in 2016. Since 1952, with the only exception being “Reagan’s third term” in 1988, voters have ousted the incumbent party after eight years. Indeed, the candidate of the eight-year incumbent party always does considerably worse in his election than the incumbent running for reelection four years before. Obama won with only 51 percent of the vote in 2012. That’s a bad sign for the 2016 Democratic nominee, who, if history is a guide, is likely to end up with about 45 percent of the vote. So the 2016 GOP nominee has a good shot to be president.

But who, you might ask, should that be?

The Militarist Agenda behind Washington’s Confrontation with North Korea

A comment published in the Wall Street Journal entitled “Time to End the North Korean Threat” demonstrates that powerful sections of the American ruling elite are pressing for a far more aggressive strategy directed at nothing less than regime-change in Pyongyang—a policy that threatens to trigger World War III. The article’s author, Richard Haass, is a central figure in the US foreign policy establishment—a former director of foreign policy studies at the Democratic Party-aligned Brookings Institution and former top-level diplomat, who is currently president of the semi-official Council on Foreign Relations.

After reviewing the options against North Korea currently being aired, Haass writes: “These ideas are fine as far as they go, but they don’t go far enough. The serious threat posed by North Korea far transcends cyberspace. Only one approach is commensurate with the challenge: ending North Korea’s existence as an independent entity and reunifying the Korean Peninsula.”

What such a military conflict would be about, would not be a war against North Korea, per se: it would be a back door to a war with China, which is treaty-bound to defend North Korea against outside aggression.

And why?!? Because both China’s currency and military are on the ascendent.

But I would very much, politely, remind those precious few adults in the bowels of power in DC, that the US military, at this moment, does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against China, which Russia may well join on the Chinese side; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

The subscriber noted that I usually relied on hard core facts that could be documented and not on speculation. As it turns out, I believe there are sufficient number of hard facts behind my speculation, but I had failed to point them out. So let me present the facts, as I see them, that point to JPMorgan having amassed the largest physical silver position in history.

 

 

 

“It’s Just A Matter of Time Before [Torture] Spills Back Into Domestic Territory. Historically, It Always Has”

The cost of our torture program — and the failure to prosecute a single official for it (or the destruction of evidence and false statements revealed in its aftermath) will continue to cost this country dearly. Countries like Iran, North Korea, and China have already cited our use of waterboarding to defend against their own abuses. When our soldiers or citizens are waterboarded in the future, countries will play back Cheney’s words and others to say that such abuse is not torture. When we demand that officials in other countries be prosecuted for torture, they will mock our hypocrisy and own history.

America’s Toxic Middle East Allies

U.S. allies in the Persian Gulf have a history of directly supporting or at least allowing private funds to flow to terrorist groups. This phenomenon has its roots in the U.S. and Saudi-backed Afghan insurgency against the Soviet Union, which included aid to the so-called “Arab Afghans” who joined the indigenous insurgency. The impact on Saudi society, and the broader Middle East, was profound.

At the same time, Gulf monarchies view these terrorist groups as a serious threat. But the Saudi state is inhibited in dealing with terrorist financing, as it cannot afford to estrange the powerful clerical establishment that permeates society and is comparatively unabashed about funding jihadists.

Whether as a parent, or as a nation, when you enable bad behaviour, the outcomes are usually pretty lousy.

Republican Senate Eyes Veto-Proof New Iran Sanctions

Despite President Obama’s promise to veto any bill that threatens the ongoing P5+1 nuclear negotiations with Iran, the incoming Republican Senate continues to talk up imposing new sanctions on Iran, putting the US in violation of the interim agreement and likely blowing up the talks.

Sen. Mark Kirk (R – IL) says he has assurances from Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – KY) that the second vote of the new Senate will be a round of sanctions against Iran.

Obama’s pledge to veto such a sanctions bill does not seem to be stopping Sen. Kirk and others, who say they believe they can must enough Democratic votes to get a veto-proof majority through.

The interim nuclear deal has the US and other P5+1 members offering minor sanctions relief in return for Iran limiting uranium enrichment. The talks have been extended, and the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed Iran is in compliance with the deal.

I am having an industrial-strength, palm to forehead moment upon reading this, and my first thought, after having digested it, is a phrase frequently used by the American comedian Ron White: “you can’t fix stupid!”

A reasonable, hard-fought negotiation, leading to a nuclear energy treaty with Iran, will help stabilize both the region, and the world.

And I am sorry: if Senator Kirk insists on consistently putting the needs and concerns of a foreign government (that of Israel) over and above the needs and concerns of his own constituents (who most likely would want to see a reasonable, working treaty with Iran), to the point of risking war with Russia over Iran, perhaps he should retire from the Senate, move to Israel, and run for the Knesset.

I understand that there are snap elections on the way in Israel very soon!! :-)

 

 

 

US, allies conduct 12 air strikes against the Islamic State

Attacks near Al Asad, Mosul, Fallujah, Al Qaim and Baiji in Iraq also destroyed buildings, vehicles and a refinery.

ACLU Sues Ferguson Schools For Being “Too White”

According to the federal complaint filed against the school district, the system used to elect the members of its school board dilutes the “black vote,” causing African-Americans not to be represented properly on the school board. According to the lawsuit, six of the seven board members are white, although seventy percent of the school is African-American.

NATO Touts Afghan War ‘End,’ With Transition to New, US-Led War

NATO flags were lowered today in Afghanistan, marking what is nominally the “end” of the NATO-led occupation which has lasted over 13 years. Yet the war as such is far from over, despite officials trying to spin it as such.

What is actually happening now is much less significant, a transition from the NATO-led war to a more US-dominated one, with the US planning significant troops to remain through 2024 and beyond, and already agreeing to extend combat missions beyond the “end” of the war.

The US government is never going to leave Afghanistan until, ultimately, as happened with Viet Nam, the people of this country are going to tell the US government that it will no longer tolerate its presence in this country.

This will only happen when the American people wake up to the reality that the US is not in Afghanistan to protect our “freedoms or way of life”; it is in Afghanistan because of the potential for the acquisition of private corporate profit, period, end of discussion.

Afghanistan, geographically, is cursed to be holding the key to very lucrative pipeline routes, which is why the Bush Administration invaded it to begin with; the price the Taliban wanted was considered “too high”; but apparently, the cost of what has become a perpetual war, with the maiming and killing of our military to secure these pipeline routes, was not.

Libyan Civil War Escalates to Airstrikes as Government

Libya’s official government conducted several tactical airstrikes in the vicinity of the town of Misrata Sunday, another episode in the ongoing war between the internationally recognized government of Prime Minister Abdullah al-Thinni and the coalition of his political opponents known as Libyan Dawn.

Oil Prices Rise Amid Militant Attacks on Libyan Oil Depots
According to the official reports, the Libyan air force, controlled by Thinni, hit several targets in the Libyan Dawn controlled city of Misrata, including a sea port, an air force academy near the airfield and a steel mill, the largest in the country, in an attempt to disrupt the town’s economic viability. Representatives for Libyan Dawn confirmed the airstrikes, claiming no immediate victims or damage.

“The airport at Misrata is still working normally. A flight has just taken off,” a representative for Libya Dawn said as quoted by Reuters.

“Hey, destabilizing Libya and assassinating Gaddafi was a terrific idea!!”-official White House Souse.

(Ahem): the current conditions in Libya are a nasty demonstration of what happens when a Presidential Administration is, collectively, pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

 

 

 

Leaked ‘kill list’ shows NATO killed Afghan children, civilians in pursuit of low-level Taliban fighters

Drawing information from top secret documents spirited away by former NSA analyst Edward Snowden, Der Spiegel reports that the “kill list” used by NATO forces in Afghanistan included low-ranking members of the Taliban along with drug dealers suspected of supporting them.

As the war in Afghanistan draws to a close after 13 years, new information is becoming available describing NATO conduct in the war-torn nation. According to the newly released documents, NATO maintained an extensive list — including up to 750 names at times – of Afghans (found here) slated for death, including mid- and lower-level Taliban operatives along with drug dealers who allegedly supported the insurgents.

I find it very psychologically insightful that extrajudicial assassinations are the primary form of war this President likes to wage.

Ukraine turns off reactor at its most powerful nuclear plant after ‘accident’

Ukraine shut down one of the six reactors in its most powerful nuclear power plant today – for the second time in a month – because of an apparent electrical malfunction.

The Zaporizhia nuclear plant’s website insisted that radiation levels in the area remained normal after the sixth reactor was “disconnected from the grid by the generator’s internal defence mechanism”.

An official statement said the plant was “operating at 40 per cent power… The reasons for the outage are being investigated”.

I’d hazard a guess here, and that would be, in a country both corrupt and horribly broke, needed maintenance protocols have not been observed, because they were “too costly”

I would like to politely point out to Ukrainian officials that the results of not doing such maintenance, and immediately, may well be even more costly to the health of the Ukrainian people.

Researchers Release Full Data from 2012 Police Body Cam Study

In the debate over police body cameras, there is basically one study that proponents repeatedly reference: a 2012 experiment in Rialto, California, carried out by the local police chief and two academics from the University of Cambridge.

The topline results—that cameras reduced the use of force by 60 percent and civilian complaints against police by 88 percent—were released by the Rialto police and have been cited widely since then. However, the full details of the study weren’t available until now.

In fact, the full study wasn’t even published until November, where it appeared in the Journal of Quantitative Criminology.

The researchers weren’t planning to release the detailed results publicly, but they changed their minds when “it became highly topical,” says Fred Lewesy, a communications officer at Cambridge University, which funded the study through its Jerry Lee Centre of Experimental Criminology. He sent the text of the study to journalists last week.

It would look to me as though this practice should be a no-brainer, on the part of police departments everywhere in the US…unless police wanted brutality to suspects remain hidden, of course.

Don’t Just Follow the Money–Follow the Income

snip: Income matters for another reason. Most households, enterprises and governments spend the vast majority of their income in one way or another. If income declines by 5%, that may not appear like much. But if the household, enterprise or government spends 98% of its income on debt service and essentials, that 5% decline puts them in the red by 3%.

It may be possible to borrow more to fill that gap–in essence, borrowing money to pay the interest on previous debt–but this is a financial Black Hole, as there is less income to service rising interest payments.

Once the gravity of insufficient income pulls the household, enterprise or government over the event horizon of insolvency, implosion is inevitable.

 

 

 

Maui Lawsuit Alleges Minors Placed in Foster Care Repeatedly Sexually Assaulted

A civil lawsuit filed on November 17, 2014, in Maui Circuit Court, alleges that two minors, placed in the custody of a foster parent by the Department of Human Services (“DHS”), were repeatedly sexually assaulted from 2009 to 2011 .

The foster parent, Florentino Rios, moved from Puerto Rico to Maui in 2008. While living in Puerto Rico, Mr. Rios married a 14-year old girl. Shortly after moving to Maui, Mr. Rios changed his name to Zack Morris, to emulate the fictional character from the children’s sitcom “Saved by the Bell.” Despite being unemployed and residing in a homeless shelter, Mr. Rios applied to be a foster parent, and was deemed fit to serve as one by DHS.

The most censored health news stories of 2014 – here’s what the establishment doesn’t want you to remember

2014 was a year in which we watched the mainstream media devolve into a spot-on depiction of George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth, engaging in White House-ordered news story blackouts, CDC-inspired anti-health propaganda that endangered the public and corporate-funded disinfo campaigns disguised as news.

But what were the biggest health-related censored news stories of the year? That’s what this Natural News article is all about. Consider it a short list of things the establishment doesn’t want you to remember actually happened.

“That’s when it was really chilling,” she said. “He’s standing there in uniform, he had his gun strapped on his side,” said Janelle Westfall recounting the horror of having a police officer intimidating her asking her to take lewd photos for him.

Seastrand then told Westfall that if she told anyone, he would deny it all.

As soon as she left the station she told her family. She told her uncle and her aunt, who were both police officers, who advised her to write down everything she remembered, while her father called the state police.

Another Air Disaster? An Air Asia Flight From Indonesia To Singapore Loses Contact And Goes Missing

An AirAsia flight carrying 155 people from the Indonesian city of Surabaya to Singapore lost contact with air traffic control on Sunday. Flight QZ 8501, an Airbus 320-200, lost contact with the Jakarta air traffic control tower at 6:17 a.m. (2317 GMT). The flight had 155 passengers and 7 crew members on board; 149 Indonesians, three people from Korea, and one each from Singapore, Britain and Malaysia. Among the passengers, 138 were adults, 16 children and 1 was a baby.Kuala Lumpur-based AirAsia confirmed its flight had lost contact with air traffic control and said a search-and-rescue operation had been launched.

This is supposedly the last ATC data block of Flight 8501. If this is real, it indicates that Flight 8501 was at 36,300 feet but only flying at 363 knots. There is a known issue with the Airbus susceptibility to stalling at high altitudes and speeds. Unlike a slow-speed, low-altitude stall, which is easy to recover from, a high-speed stall can put the plane into a spin that is unrecoverable. Given the highly turbulent air they were flying in, caused by the severe weather conditions, flying that close to the stall speed, it appears the plane may have crossed into a wind-shear zone that dropped the wings below stall. The plane went divergent, and the crew was to busy trying to recover the craft to make a radio call.

Molten metal under Trade Center rubble could NOT have come from jet fuel

The U.S. government, the 9/11 Commission, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, FEMA and the mainstream media all do the same thing. When they can’t explain something that contradicts the official version of events on 9/11, they simply pretend the questions don’t exist.

Among the most crucial examples of this are the large pools of molten metal found under the rubble of the two twin towers of the World Trade Center and Building 7. The molten metal burned under the rubble for weeks, with the final fires not being extinguished until December of 2001, three months after the disaster.

The official story can’t explain this; it doesn’t even try. That’s because the molten metal points to a controlled demolition – explosive charges combined with a material that causes a chemical reaction creating extreme heat to cut through steel beams.

Leaked documents raise new questions over UK complicity in secret US drone strikes

Previously secret documents obtained by Der Speigel – including a ‘Kill List’ that included both Pakistani and Afghan targets – have raised new concerns about British complicity in the US’s covert drone war in Pakistan.

The documents, detailed in an article published yesterday evening, show that NATO and British forces in Afghanistan planned to target and kill individuals that were located across the border in Pakistan. The UK government has consistently denied that it has taken strikes outside of Afghanistan and has refused to confirm whether and to what extent it is involved in the CIA’s covert drone war in Pakistan.

On June 9 a B-1B crew, flying too high to detect signals worn by American forces, dropped two bombs that killed the soldiers and an Afghan sergeant.

 

 

 

Now Homeland upsets Israel: Controversial scene in season finale prompts fury after former prime minister Menachem Begin is compared to fictional Taliban leader

Berenson describes Haqqani as a terrorist who ‘recently killed 36 Americans’.

Adal responds: ‘Menachem Begin killed 91 British soldiers at the King David hotel before he became prime minister.’

The Homeland CIA agent was referring to a bombing at the King David hotel in Jerusalem in 1946 that was carried out by the Irgun, a right-wing militant Jewish organization which was headed by Menachem Begin.

Massive 5,000-year-old underground city uncovered in Cappadocia, Turkey

The region of Cappadocia in central Turkey is home to one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world – deep valleys and soaring rock formations dotted with homes, chapels, tombs, temples and entire subterranean cities harmoniously carved into the natural landforms. Cities, empires and religions have risen and fallen around these unique underground havens, and yet it seems they still hold a few more secrets. Archaeologists in Turkey have uncovered another massive underground city in Cappadocia, consisting of at least 7 kilometers (3.5 miles) of tunnels, hidden churches, and escape galleries dating back around 5,000 years.

While the US-led coalition claims that the first fighter jet was “not downed” by ISIS, the fact that ISIS is now claiming to have downed a 2nd fighter jet in Balad (north of Baghdad) and captured the pilot, suggests the west may not be being entirely honest (two ‘crashes’ in a week is perhaps more worrisome than 2 ‘shot down’ in a week). What is even more disturbing is the fact that ISIS has taken to social media to ask how the first captured Jordanian pilot should die…

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“Teach your children to be brave. This century of ours has been marked most conspicuously by cowardice of the people everywhere. It was by our cowardice that we were betrayed into the hands of corrupt men who promised to make life”safe’ for us and devoid of hazard, and robbed the adventurousness by which the spirits of men are strengthened. It was by our poltroonery that we lost our liberties. It was by our fears that we almost died. A brave people never become slaves.” — Taylor Caldwell,”The Devil’s Advocate”(1952) — pgs. 332 — 338

Afghanistan against US plans to transfer military gear to Ukraine – Kabul official

Kabul is against Washington’s alleged decision to transfer weapons and machinery left from its military mission in Afghanistan to Ukraine, an Afghan presidential administration official told TASS. The issue will be discussed with Obama, he added.

American specialists in Afghanistan are currently preparing US army MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicles to be transferred to Ukraine, according to the information obtained by the Afghan presidential administration. The US combat mission command refuses to discuss the issue with Kabul, saying the White House is in charge, a representative of Ashraf Ghani’s administration told the agency.

IF in fact this report is true, it is a terrible harbinger of what is in store for Eastern Ukraine next year.

The question which must be asked, now, is when this equipment will be transported from Afghanistan to Ukraine. Afghanistan’s Ghani will be in Washington for talks about the equipment and US troop strength some time early next year.

Perhaps the quid pro quo here will be the US moving this equipment out of the country in exchange for a much more enhanced US troop strength in Afghanistan, larger by far than the number the US government has already stated.

But were I a betting person, I would not bet that this equipment move will not be delayed much past the State of the Union address, to enable Obama to talk about the degree to which the US government is willing to assist Ukraine against the breakaway Eastern Ukrainian republics, and mention US troops and equipment already there as a fait accompli. If the equipment is moved by air, it is a matter of hours to get it to Ukraine; if by rail or truck, just a matter of days.

Two recent stories in The New York Times involve violence against Palestinian and Israeli children. But it is striking how differently the stories are treated based on the identity of the victim.

The first, from today, is headlined “Israeli Girl Severely Wounded in Firebomb Attack in West Bank.” The second, from November, is headlined “Palestinian Shot by Israeli Troops at Gaza Border.” Both are by Isabel Kershner.

Israeli digging causes collapse near Western Wall

Israeli excavations under the al-Aqsa Mosque have caused collapse just meters away from the Western Wall of East al-Quds (Jerusalem), Press TV reports.

The wall is located at the foot of the western side of Haram al-Sharif, or the Noble Sanctuary, one of the most important religious sites in the Israeli-occupied Old City of al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The collapse came about on Friday in an area in Silwan south of al-Aqsa where the tunnels dug by the Israelis start. Following the incident, the Israeli police sealed off the site and forbade anyone from approaching it.

The return of trafficking in women

Over the past three years, Israel has taken pride in the fact that in the American State Department’s report on human trafficking, it ranked highest for its success in stamping it out.

But recently, trafficking in women has come back into our lives…

As more cities ban homeless camps, advocates cry foul

For Teresa Sigerson, a former waitress who has lived under a Chicago expressway bridge for three years, the camp she shares with eight others provides shelter, companionship and some measure of security.

“There’s safety in numbers,” said Sigerson, 51, who begs during the day and sleeps between concrete bridge pillars under a highway northwest of downtown. “Everything’s convenient here – you’re by the stores, the highway.”

This year, Sigerson almost lost her space when construction began on tall concrete barriers on the raised slabs where the homeless were make their beds. The project, which was halted this summer, was meant to dislodge the decade-old camp in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood.

407 Jewish settlers forced way into Al-Aqsa for Hanukkah

At least 407 Jewish settlers forced their way into East Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque complex during this week’s Hanukkah holidays, a Palestinian NGO said Thursday.

The Al-Aqsa Foundation for Endowments and Heritage said that, from Sunday to Thursday, 407 Israelis – protected by Israeli police – had conducted individual and group tours inside the mosque complex.

Of these, 52 were young Israeli troops who entered the complex in military uniform as part of a so-called “guidance and exploration” program, the NGO said.

“Occupation forces harassed Muslim worshippers at the gates of the mosque complex, arresting 20 over the past week,” it added.

It went on to say that detained worshippers had been subsequently released after being subject to monetary fines and barred from entering the Al-Aqsa complex for periods ranging from two weeks to one month.

Israeli officials could not be reached for comment on the issue.

2014: The Year Propaganda Came Of Age

That propaganda as a strategic and political instrument has been refined to a huge extent over the past 70-odd years since Goebbels first picked up on Freud’s lessons on how to influence the unconscious mind, and the ‘mass-mind’, as a way to ‘steer’ an entire people, not just as a means to make them buy detergent. These days, the media can make people believe just about anything, and they have the added benefit that they can pose as friends of the people, not the enemy.

But there is a reason why such a large ‘industry’ has developed on the web with people writing articles that don’t say what the mass media say. That reason for is, obviously, first and foremost that not everybody believes whatever they are told.

 

 

Iran’s New “Suicidal” Bomb

I would like to grasp what the Israeli media means when it tags a bomb ‘suicidal’? Does it leave a note before it plunges into an IDF’s headquarter? Are IDF’s guided missiles targeting Palestinian family homes also suicidal bombs? Do the Israelis expect the new Iranian drone to “knock on the roof” just before it goes off? Or does a bomb becoming suicidal only when it is set to hit a Jewish strategic target?

‘Npower sent me a bill for £643,794,111.30 – and that doesn’t include gas!’ We reveal the shocking winners of our prizes for craziest energy demands

We had already reported how E.On customer Julia Thomas was told at the beginning of this month that her monthly direct debit would be rising from £125 to a staggering £16,270.

And German-owned E.On told Julia, a 42-year-old administrator for the Royal College of Nursing, that her gas bill for the year ahead would be in excess of £90,000.

But Julia’s astronomical bill and projections – the result of a faulty gas meter – are a mere pittance compared with a demand Andrew Wilkins received from npower seeking payment in January this year – of a cool £643,794,111.30.

No charges for Bush-era torturers under Obama

Despite injustices committed by the Bush administration after the September 11th attack, Obama refuses to hold the wrong-doers accountable.

Though he admits the practices were torturous, and therefore criminal, he chooses to remain “agnostic” about whether or not the tactics worked and does not plan to pursue the issue further.

His reasoning for not taking appropriate actions in response to the recent release of the torture report may have something to do with his close ties to the CIA director.

Conspiracy Of Silence Banned Discovery Channel Documentary

As we watch the unraveling of the pedophile scandal at the heights of the British Government, it is worth recalling that the US Government is not above such things, and had a similar scandal called the Franklin Scandal in 1989 that reached all the way to the White House. This documentary was produced by British journalists and scheduled to appear on The Dicovery Channel, but members of Congress threatened to destroy the then-fledgling cable TV industry if this was allowed to air. Discovery caved in and yanked the program from the schedule even though it was already listed in TV Guide magazine. An anonymous party then purchased the rights to the documentary and ordered all copies destroyed. But an editing work tape survived to teach us all the true nature of the people who seek political power over the rest of us.

US senator Graham threatens to defund UN over Palestine bid

Visiting US Senator Lindsey Graham threatened Saturday to withhold US funding from the UN, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at the Palestinian Authority, a day after a senior Palestinian official said the PA will push for a UN vote on the Palestinian statehood bid by Monday.

Go ahead, Lindsey; yank the US funding. Then the UN will have no problem kicking both the US out, which means Israel will no longer have the almighty US veto to protect itself in the Security Council. As for the UN, they will have to act against this obvious intimidation tactic by the US or risk losing what little remains of their credibility.

 

 

 

Greek Prime Minister: “It’s Best For The Country” To Do Away With Democracy

During a state-TV “interview” which many are dubbing pure fear-mongering propaganda ahead of Monday’s final ‘vote of confidence’, Greek Prime Minister Samaras unleashes his most assanine M.A.D. comments yet. “It’s not a question of what’s good for me or New Democracy. It’s best for the country that there are not snap elections.” Translation: you don’t need no stinking democracy, trust us – your benevolent rulers – to do what’s best for the Greek people (and by Greek people, he means ‘unelected European bureaucrats’).

Yet an investigation by The Mail on Sunday, drawing on testimonies by ex-soldiers who were with them, can show that Jamie Read and James Hughes greatly exaggerated their story of having gone out to Syria to fight – and, in fact, went there to obtain videos and pictures to sell for financial gain.

 

 

 

Westminster paedophile ring: Jailed Charles Napier will be told to name VIP abusers

Caged child abuser Charles Napier faces a grilling by detectives who believe he could help expose a network of VIP paedophiles with links to Westminster.

Officers probing claims that span decades think the former teacher – jailed last week for abusing 23 boys – can name Establishment figures including peers, Government ministers, ­civil servants and police.

Napier, 67, was treasurer of the twisted Paedophile Information Exchange, which ­campaigned on behalf of ­paedophiles in the 1970s and 1980s and ­argued that the age of consent should be lowered to FOUR.

Dossiers compiled by ­campaigning MP Geoffrey Dickens and handed to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan in the 1980s were said to contain damning ­evidence about the group.

We need to lay bare the sort of psychologically ill people who seek political power over others for all the world to see.

Ukraine cuts off Crimea’s power, transport services

Ukraine has cut off electricity as well as bus and train services to the Crimea Peninsula, which integrated into the Russian Federation in a referendum earlier this year.

On Friday, Kiev stopped providing electricity to Crimea, arguing that Ukraine has its own electricity shortages since the pro-Russia forces operating in the country’s east have blocked coal shipments to its power plants.

On the same day, Ukraine also suspended train and rail services to Crimea over what it described as security concerns.

US Massing Thousands of Vehicles in Kuwait for ISIS War

An AirAsia Indonesia airliner flying from Indonesia to Singapore with 162 people on board has gone missing.

Flight QZ8501 lost contact with air traffic control at 06:24 local time (23:24 GMT Saturday) over the Java Sea.

The plane, an Airbus A320-200, disappeared midway into the flight of more than two hours from the city of Surabaya. No distress call was made.

Bad weather was reported in the area, and an air search operation has now been suspended for the night.

Planes from Indonesia and Singapore had been scouring an area of sea between Kalimantan (Borneo) and Java. Some boats were reported to be continuing to search as night fell.

No wreckage has been found, an Indonesian official told the BBC.

Malaysian Airlines and Boeing are breathing a sign of relief, I am sure! But it has been a bad year for commercial aviation. I wonder if there were any military tests taking place in the area.

After 522 Years, Spain Seeks To Make Amends For Expulsion Of Jews

Some 300,000 Jews — up to a quarter of the Spanish population — had to convert to Catholicism or flee Spain, or were killed in the Spanish Inquisition.

Now their descendants may become Spanish again, under a draft law approved by Spain’s government. It would grant Spanish citizenship to descendants of Jews expelled in 1492. A recent amendment would let them keep their current citizenship too.

Spain says it wants to rectify what it calls a “historic mistake.” The measure still needs approval by both houses of Spain’s Parliament, and is expected to become law this spring.

The Spanish government expects tens of thousands to apply for citizenship, including many from Israel — where the offer is getting lots of attention.

US Thought-Control Goes into Loop over Sony Hollywood Hack

The hysterical over-reaction in the US to the hacking of computers at Sony is worthy of a satirical movie in itself. A case of art imitating life, or maybe vice versa.

North Korea – the «Axis of Evil» – has been roundly blamed for the Hollywood cyber-attack by US President Barack Obama, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the corporate news media. Obama called it «a national security threat» while hothead politicians like Senator John McCain declared that North Korea had committed «an act of war».

Accusations of brainwashing and authoritarian state control leveled at North Korea can just as easily apply to the American public given the massive orchestration of popular perception by US news media, Washington and its closely aligned Hollywood infotainment industry.

We can imagine how far hallowed American free speech would be tolerated if a foreign country made a movie which «satirically» depicts the assassination of Barack Obama.

Putin: It Is Time To Play Your Ace In The Hole

We hope Putin realizes the US is not playing games here, as this is a financial and strategic game to the death for Washington and it’s Western allies that have foolishly followed the Goldman Sachs/central banking cartel’s deadly sovereign debt recipe and for growth and prosperity. The time is up; the debts can never be repaid and sooner or later must be repudiated one way or the other.

If regulators go along, the rules would allow the largest Internet giants to continue scooping up data about users on their own sites and on other sites that include their plug-ins, such as Facebook’s “Like” button or an embedded YouTube video.

On Friday, December 26th, National Public Radio aired two superbly done pieces of anti-Russia propaganda, which could as well have been written by the U.S. CIA, or by Voice of America, it was so skillfully deceiving.

One of these propaganda-pieces, on “Morning Edition,” presented Eleanor Beardsley alleging that the anti-immigrant political parties in Britain and France are anti-U.S. and pro-Russian because they are supposedly all “far right”; and the other piece, on “All Things Considered,” presented Corey Flintoff alleging that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin “seized Crimea” (as if he hadn’t actually rescued it) and thereby caused U.S. President Barack Obama and the EU to respond with economic sanctions as punishment for the ‘seizure’ (actually, as we’ll show, rescue).

The Road to Torture It’s All-American By Philip Giraldi

snip:At the heart of the matter in its political manifestation there is the “unitary executive doctrine,” a proposition that the government chief executive’s authority is virtually unlimited, particularly in time of national emergency. Those who support the doctrine accept that declaring a national emergency is itself conveniently the responsibility of the chief executive, meaning that he can de facto grant himself unrestricted authority. The doctrine was developed by jurists in Germany in the 1930s where it was described as the Führer Prinzip or leader principle in English. It essentially means that the government can do no wrong and cannot be held accountable precisely because it is the government. Those who cite the principle do so to override what might be referred to as constitutionalism, which limits the authority of the leader.

That $50 note in your wallet is not worth the paper it is not printed on. It is effectively a government IOU. It is literally created out of thin air, and much of the currency out there is not a tangible thing you can hold, but is simply figures on a screen. Real wealth is real estate, farms and very historically well managed blue chip equities.

Throughout history, there have been literally hundreds of different currencies, and without exception all of them have eventually failed. Our currencies will be no different…………….KT

“War is peace” double-speak has become commonplace these days. And, the more astute foreign policy journalists and commentators are beginning to realize the extent of how “liberal interventionists” work in sync with neocon warhawks to produce and sustain a perpetual state of U.S. war.

Man Who Confronted ‘Zionist’ George H. W. Bush in A Houston Pizza Place Has A Message For Rand Paul

[Editor’s note: You may remember my friend Greg Johnson from four years ago when he confronted George H.W. Bush in a Houston pizza place, calling him a ‘Zionist murderer piece of shit.’ The confrontation made international news, Bill O’Reilly called for Johnson’s arrest and the U.S. Secret Service came to his house the next day, which he video-recorded for his own safety.

Nicaragua faces questions over new canal after protest deaths, links to China and fears over environmental impact

Police in Nicaragua have denied claims that at least two people were killed during violent protests that followed Monday’s inauguration of work on a proposed 173-mile canal to connect the Atlantic to the Pacific. The government of President Daniel Ortega staged Monday’s groundbreaking event as it was besieged by questions about the $50bn (£32bn) project’s feasibility and desirability. At least 21 people were hurt and 33 arrested when hundreds of farmers protested, saying the project would force them from their land.

Ukraine’s Government Is Starving Residents of the Breakaway Region

Amnesty International has found that “the already desperate situation in eastern Ukraine is being made even worse by” so-called ‘volunteer’ or mercenary forces for the Ukrainian Government, which are blocking the supply of food to residents in that region, and trying to starve them to death.

Thus, “The region is facing a humanitarian disaster with many already at risk of starvation,” said Denis Krivosheev, acting Director of Europe and Central Asia for Amnesty International, on Wed., December 24th.

Amnesty International reports that, “Over half of the population in these areas are now entirely dependent on food aid.”

This is absolutely certifiably criminal, on the part of the Ukrainian government.

And THIS is the government which has become the “BFF” of the American government?!?

UN Security Council Prepares to Lynch North Korea. Manipulation to Justify Aggressive War?

On December 18, and in the subsequent December 22 Security Council meeting, the double standards within the United Nations are shockingly visible, and one can only gasp at the arrogance of the blatantly biased and politically motivated resolution A/69/488/Add.3 which “condemns the long-standing and ongoing systematic, widespread and gross violations of human rights in the DPRK.” The resolution condemning the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is clearly an attempt to eviscerate the socialist government of North Korea.

The use of allegations of human rights abuses by the United States, the world’s most powerful country, and the powerful country whose own documented record of criminal human rights abuses has just been published, causing revulsion and horror throughout the world, constitutes an assault on justice which so dishonors the United Nations that the adoption of this resolution condemning the DPRK can only be described as shameful.

The short answer posed by the title of this article is, “HELL, yes!”.

And why?!? Because war with North Korea will translate into a war against China, which has both a national currency and military capabilities on the ascendent.

It is a war the US government and military may well lose; but just because an action is the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly wrong thing the US government could possibly do is, unfortunately, absolutely no guarantee that it will not do such a thing.

The Bear Squeezes Back: Russian Ruble Rises against the Dollar

Sanctions introduced by the West against Russia are a form of hot economic warfare. But the attack on the ruble resulted in a competitive currency devaluation for Russia, limiting its ability to import from the West (saving foreign currency), and protecting the value of its declining volume of exports by increasing the number of dollars it receives for each devalued ruble.

As Michael Hudson has explained, Putin has responded to the U.S.-led sanctions movement by diversifying oil and gas exports towards China and Turkey, and signing sales agreements in rubles or currencies other than the U.S. dollar. By abandoning the U.S. dollar as its trading currency, and accepting payments in Chinese yuan, for instance, Putin is signalling his desire to break the stranglehold the U.S. currency has enjoyed over oil and gas trade, and within the world economy.

On December 22, China announced its willingness to support the ruble through currency swaps from its $4-trillion reserves.

It painfully clearly appears that the Obama Administration has again, collectively, shot itself in the foot economically, because of its consistent, to the point of pathological, inability to think anything through to its logical conclusion.

In a letter published by Die Zeit, numerous famous and respected Germans including a former president and former prime minister write “Wieder Krieg in Europa? Nicht in unserem Namen!”, or, roughly translated, “War in Europe Again? Not in Our Names!” As the signatories note: “It is not about Putin. Heads of state come and go. What is at stake is Europe.”

 

 

 

US Massing Thousands of Vehicles in Kuwait for ISIS War

For years, the US was wondering what it was going to do with many thousands of war vehicles it shipped to Afghanistan when the drawdown left so many of them in surplus. At times they talked about giving them away, or shredding them.

Instead, 3,100 such vehicles have been sent to Kuwait, where the US is massing them for use in the ever-escalating war against ISIS. Officials simply found another war for them.

The bulk of the vehicles are MRAPs, used by ground troops to resist IEDs in travel, and that points to the buildup being done with an eye on an eventual US ground war in Iraq and Syria.

Russia to counteract NATO’s boosted presence in Black Sea – envoy

Moscow is being forced to come up with countermeasures in response to NATO’s increased presence in the Black Sea, Russia’s envoy to the alliance said following an announcement on the arrival of another US warship in the area.

“Unfortunately, the Black Sea is becoming a place where non-regional powers have a permanent presence. What they are doing there is unclear,” Aleksandr Grushko said.

“Of course, we will take the necessary countermeasures,” he continued.

Grushko also criticized the North Atlantic Alliance for stationing high alert forces near Russia’s borders by holding frequent military drills with counties including Poland and the Baltic states.

READ MORE: Pentagon confirms military buildup along Russian borders for ‘peace and stability’

Russia’s new military doctrine, adopted on December 26, stresses that the country’s army remains a defensive tool, but lists NATO’s military buildup and the United States’ Prompt Global Strike concept as main security threats.

NATO’S continued provocation of Russia appears to be a deliberate series of events, engineered to get Russia to react militarily, then blame Russia for its “aggression”, and start a war with Russia.

I would like to politely and calmly point out to those precious few adults in the bowels of power in DC that neither NATO nor the US military has 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 so scarily dangerous.

And if you want any kind of a picture of how NATO will most likely perform military, just please look at the epic fail it has helped create in its partnership with the US in Afghanistan.

There is absolutely zero military metric one can use to possibly characterize this slo-mo bloodbath as a “victory” or success of any kind. The only thing which has “increased”, except the body count of Afghanis, US and NATO military personnel, is the incredible increase of opium production, and THAT, since the beginning of the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan, has SKYROCKETED.

So folks, before you swallow the Koolaid and get all gung ho about the US and NATO whupping Russia’s backside, please do some due dilligence about the absolute disaster the occupation of Afghanistan has been.

Since there is a proven NATO “track record” here, if you will, you cannot logically expect any better an outcome against Russia.

The NSA chose Christmas to detail 12 years of accidental spying

The NSA’s idea of a Christmas present, it seems, is to release multiple reports detailing 12 years of improper conduct. The heavily redacted accounts reveal many incidents of misuse (both accidental and intentional) of the NSA’s Signal Intelligence (SIGINT) systems. A large portion of the misconduct occurred due to the way agents searched the NSA’s systems. Poorly constructed and sometimes unauthorized searches led to agents gleaning data on either US citizens and other unintended targets. According to an accompanying press release, data acquired illegally or accidentally is “almost always” deleted in what it refers to as a “purge process.”

Thanks to redactions, it’s difficult to say exactly how many times the NSA broke the law.

The Best Lawyers Money Can Buy

The United States Supreme Court decides cases involving the nation’s most pressing legal issues, affecting the daily lives of hundreds of millions of Americans — and yet so much about its functioning is shrouded in mystique and exclusivity. The court’s front doors are locked and its vast “public” plaza is off-limits to protesters. Alone among the branches of government, it refuses to televise its proceedings, even though its gallery can seat only 250 members of the public.

As a new report by Reuters shows, this exclusivity extends even to the types of cases the court agrees to hear.

Are you at all surprised that US government, including its judiciary, is for sale to the highest bidder??

Sony About to Get Sued For Pirating Music in The Interview

According to new claims, Sony used copyrighted music in The Interview without permission and without compensating an artist.

Yoon Mi-rae (real name Natasha Shanta Reid) is a US-born hip hop and R&B singer who currently releases music on the Feel Ghood Music label. In January 2013 as part of MFBTY (My Fans Better Than Yours), the 33-year-old hit the number 1 spot in the Korean Music Charts and in September reached the same heights on Billboard’s Kpop Hot 100 list with her song ‘Touch Love’.

But while these recognitions were achieved by fans buying her music, she’s now in the spotlight for not getting paid for her work. It appears that Yoon Mi-rae was in negotiations with Sony to have her track ‘Pay Day’ appear in The Interview. Even though no agreement was reached, Sony used the music anyway.

Busted! Edwardsville Police Officer Linked to Several Burglaries

After Scrutiny, C.I.A. Mandate Is Untouched

Over a lunch in Washington in 1976, James J. Angleton, for years the ruthless chief of counterintelligence at the C.I.A., likened the agency to a medieval city occupied by an invading army.

“Only, we have been occupied by Congress,” he told a young congressional investigator. “With our files rifled, our officials humiliated, and our agents exposed.”

Nearly four decades later, another Senate committee’s allegations that the C.I.A. has engaged in torture, lying and cover-up have stirred echoes of the Church era — raising the question of whether the agency is in for another period of change.

Translation: the CIA will continue to operate outside of US laws,and international norms of decency, including the continuance of torture with which to obtain “confessions” germane to supporting the official governmental narrative.

And I for one do not support this kind of behaviour on the part of the CIA or any other governmental agency,and know, for a fact, that I am not alone.

Were injured hostages shot by police bullets which ricocheted off cafe wall?

Police are investigating whether the hostages injured in the shootout that ended the Sydney cafe siege were accidentally shot by armed officers as they stormed the Lindt Café.

Three women – a 75 year old, a 52 year old and a 43 year old – received gunshot wounds to the shoulder, the foot and the leg respectively.

NSW Police Homicide Squad detectives are looking at the possibility that at least one of the women were hit by bullets which ricocheted off the cafe walls, according to The Australian.

Malaysian PM criticized for golfing with Obama while 118,000 residents are displaced in massive floods

Malaysia’s worst flooding in decades forced some 118,000 people to flee as premier Najib Razak came under fire after photos showed him golfing with U.S. President Barack Obama during the storms.

At least five people have been killed by the rising waters and there appeared little respite on the way on Friday, with forecasters predicting further heavy rainfall across previously unaffected southern parts of the country.

As local media carried photographs of people wading through flood waters as deep as two meters (6.5 feet) and entire houses submerged by rising water, the government faced criticism for not declaring a state of emergency to help devastated communities.

It is obvious that the Malaysian government is just as oblivious to the suffering of their people as is Obama to the economic suffering of the American middle class, which is vanishing exponentially.

NPR Propagandizes Against Putin, for Regime-Change in Russia

On Friday, December 26th, National Public Radio aired two superbly done pieces of anti-Russia propaganda, which could as well have been written by the U.S. CIA, or by Voice of America, it was so skillfully deceiving.

One of these propaganda-pieces, on “Morning Edition,” presented Eleanor Beardsley alleging that the anti-immigrant political parties in Britain and France are anti-U.S. and pro-Russian because they are supposedly all “far right”; and the other piece, on “All Things Considered,” presented Corey Flintoff alleging that Russia’s President Vladimir Putin “seized Crimea” (as if he hadn’t actually rescued it) and thereby caused U.S. President Barack Obama and the EU to respond with economic sanctions as punishment for the ‘seizure” (actually, as we’ll show, rescue).

NPR is simply another tool of government propaganda; I simply won’t watch it anymore, because its alleged “news” is no better than the intellectual slop offered up by the privately sponsored competing presstitute stations.

A Report From the Frontlines in the War Against Fracking

A mixture of emotions is running through the Finger Lakes region of New York in the wake of Governor Cuomo’s announcement on Wednesday, December 17 to ban hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) in the state. Residents are relieved to be protected from the health risks and environmental damage produced from fracking. Nevertheless, they are continuing their struggle to oppose the Texas-based Crestwood corporation’s project to store volatile gases extracted from other states, such as Pennsylvania, in salt caverns along the shores of Seneca Lake, which provides drinking water for approximately 100,000 people. Crestwood is seeking to make the Seneca Lake location a hub in its broader infrastructure that supports fracking.

The silence from Australian PM Abbott on the downing of MH17 is now deafening…………………………KT

Why the Secrecy on the Mh17 Investigation

The Russians disclosed, inter alia, their radar and satellite data. These data showed that MH17 had been diverted from its scheduled route so that it flew directly over the war zone in eastern Ukraine. They asked for an explanation but one has never been forthcoming. These data also showed that MH17 had been shadowed during its last minutes by two SU25 fighter jets, a model flown by the Ukrainian air force. Again the Russians asked why this had happened.

The main response was a claim that the SU25 could not fly above 10,000 metres. Not only is this untrue, as an examination of military resources readily demonstrates, but the Wikipedia entry on the SU25 had been altered days before the shoot down to claim that the SU25’s operating ceiling was only 7000 metres. Again the western media ignored this obvious alarm bell.

Bahrain Adopts Israel Strategy To Alter Demographics

Prominent Bahraini human rights activist Nabeel Rajab accused Bahrain’s ruling family of seeking to change Bahrain’s demography by adopting a strategy similar to that used by the UK in the creation of Israel.

Talking to Iranian news channel Press TV, Rajab said the systematic naturalization of foreigners and the deportation of locals after revoking their citizenships are proof that al-Khalifa family is implementing the same strategy that Britain implemented in Palestine.

Dozens of Bahrainis have had their citizenship revoked and several have also been deported since Bahrain adopted the Bahraini Citizenship Law last year stipulating that suspects convicted of “terrorist” acts could be stripped of their nationality.

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

And a short memo to the Al-Khalifa monarchy: in doing this, you are sowing the seeds for this monarchy’s destruction.

And I say this because there will be a point, when these “newly minted” citizens will begin to chafe under your dictatorship, and begin to demand what the Sunni members of your country have been demanding, so far, peacefully; and that is true representation in government..

And what are they going to do when they don’t get that?!? Has anyone in the monarchy or your advisers thought this through?!?

The late President Kennedy said it best; when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable.

With these moves, you may have postponed a revolution, and bought yourselves some time; but just barely.

Religious Circumcision Leaves Another Jewish Baby With Herpes, 17th Case Linked To Controversial Ritual Of Oral Suction

The controversial practice of a Jewish circumcision ritual has led another newborn baby to contract neonatal herpes in New York City – the fourth case this year and the 17th since 2000, city health officials said Wednesday.

Twelve days after undergoing the ancient ritual, known as metzitzah b’peh, which involves cleaning the circumcision wound by oral suction, the newborn baby was rushed to the hospital in November, the Jerusalem Post reported on Thursday.

Although the unidentified boy has recovered in the latest case, two of the other infected infants since 2000 have died, and at least two have suffered brain damage.

Supreme Court Rules 8-1 Citizens Have No Protection Against 4th Amendment Violations by Police Ignorant of the Law

In a blow to the constitutional rights of citizens, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in Heien v. State of North Carolina that police officers are permitted to violate American citizens’ Fourth Amendment rights if the violation results from a “reasonable” mistake about the law on the part of police. Acting contrary to the venerable principle that “ignorance of the law is no excuse,” the Court ruled that evidence obtained by police during a traffic stop that was not legally justified can be used to prosecute the person if police were reasonably mistaken that the person had violated the law.

But rest assured that “ignorance of the law is no excuse” will still be applied to YOU!

 

 

 

Snowden Docs reveal 5-Nation Cointelpro Ops

Famed journalist Glenn Greenwald, most known for being the main reporter who received and exposed NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s stolen files, has just released another shocking global espionage revelation. Except this one doesn’t expose overzealous spying upon all of humanity. It exposes a worldwide cointelpro operation being perpetrated by 5 Western governments.

Police forces are in the business of protecting the populace from criminals and harm. It’s mostly a defensive job. But in the mid-twentieth century, the FBI expanded their mission to include going on the offense, not against criminals, but against anyone the government deemed the ‘enemy’. Thanks to a detailed report from journalist Glenn Greenwald and the accompanying 50-page secret document from the British government, it’s now apparent cointelpro operations are back.

How Covert Agents Infiltrate the Internet to Manipulate, Deceive, and Destroy Reputations

Can Robots Save The World? Fukushima’s Nuclear Fuel Mess

Richard Wilcox, PhD
Activist Post

Setting aside the issue of robots taking over the world (as opposed to saving it) and making human workers redundant; or Artificial Intelligence (as opposed to severe lack of intelligence we see in the world) causing the extinction of homo sapiens, it is true that tools and technology have done much good in the world ever since chimps figured out how to use a stick to prod grubs from a tree for a tasty morsel.

Maybe robots can help to bring a speedy end to the nuclear mess at Fukushima as well. However, while robots are being touted for all sorts of things, such as replacing human workers and removing melted fuel, they are not quite there yet. Remember the promises of nuclear technology and GMO foods? Maybe those Genies should have been kept in the bottle…

According to a news brief released today by GMWatch.org, China destroyed three shipments of GM corn imported from the US.

The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed?Dec26

Well, let me put it to you this way. What would happen to Whole Foods’ program of voluntary GMO labeling if there were mandatory labeling across America, or in any state where Whole Foods does business?

Can you guess?

I’ll break it down. Whole Foods has pledged to put “non-GMO” labels on their products by 2018. They’ll do everything they can to sell as many non-GMO products as possible. The products that don’t carry the non-GMO seal will obviously be GMO, and customers can avoid them if they want to.

On the other hand, if suddenly, out of the blue, mandatory labeling became law, the whole voluntary non-GMO label enterprise would be obsolete. Why voluntarily put that label on products when mandatory labeling handles the whole issue?

“We put non-GMO labels on our food. Aren’t we wonderful?”

“Not really. The mandatory labels tell me everything that’s GMO. All the other products are non-GMO. Thanks, but no thanks.”

‘Everything Is In Place And Nobody Can Stop Us Now’ – Dr Day 1969 Lecture

The ‘1969 Day’ lecture has been referenced in many comments (mainly by Ned) – and thus I have posted the full Rense article here below. Dr. Day seemed to have anesthetized his audience into the belief that nothing could stop the well laid plans of this powerful (NWO) group. Well, we know, the natural order of systems is that they flourish and then decline. And in some ways, this can also be viewed as a parasite – host relationship. The success of a parasite is that it’s host is oblivious to the parasite. And as the host is sapped of ‘energy’ and resources, it has to adapt – thus the two are in a constant process of co-evolution. The danger, however, for the parasite is that: 1) the host becomes aware of the parasite, and 2) it has evolved to survive only on its host.

NY TIMES CRIES ABOUT THE PEOPLE IT KILLED

Sulzberger’s Slimes has a long and disgusting history of creating disasters, and then expressing false sympathy for the very people its dishonest reporting has victimized. This was seen recently when a few editorial crocodile tears were shed for two murdered New York police officers who would still be alive today were it not for Sulzberger’s unremitting race-baiting and cop-bashing.

Today’s Jewish whine, a book review actually, is about “the human costs of America’s forever wars”. Here’s a snippet:

“War cracks people’s lives apart, unmasks the most extreme emotions, fuels the deepest existential questions. Even as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan morph into shapeless struggles with no clear ends in sight, they have given birth to an extraordinary outpouring of writing that tries to make sense of it all.”

NY Times says a Palestinian majority would ‘endanger Israel’s democratic ideals’

And: “a Palestinian majority” would not just endanger Israel’s Jewish character, but its “democratic ideals?” Isn’t that like saying democracy would endanger a democracy? Not when you’re talking about Arabs! Writes Donald Johnson: “Imagine them saying that about any other ethnic group in the world. Interpreted charitably, they might be saying that a one state solution might lead to ethnic strife between extremists on one or both sides, or something like that, but if so, they should spell it out. Their brains just shut down when writing on this subject.”

The racism against Palestinians in the mainstream press is so casual it’s shocking. People would be picketed if they wrote this about an American ethnic group.

Whites should pay 1.4 million Blacks to leave United States!!!

Shocking, isn’t it!

Filmmaker, Author Sues Big Media Over Sandy Hook

Filmmaker and Author William Brandon Shanley Launches Wave of Lawsuits for more than $1 Trillion Against Big Media Over Sandy Hook Massacre Coverage

Here is Mr. Shanley’s Statement:

“After exhaustive research, the good news is that overwhelming evidence reveals that no children or teachers died at Sandy Hook two years ago. For relief, I have filed lawsuits against the media in US District Court in New Haven for Fraud and Terrorism. Here is an example of our abundant evidence, Exhibit D: The Connecticut State Police dash cams record no evacuation of children from school at critical moments: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqcaaE6aFX8 — Smoking Gun evidence no children died at Sandy Hook.”

Remember, the FBI’s own crime statistics show no murders took place in Newtown, Connecticut for that entire year!

Two issues are dealt with in the video below… 1) How NORSE has evidence that the SONY hack originated from within the US and; 2) How the United States is second only to China in being the originating location of attacks occurring right now INSIDE the United States.

Kurt Stammberger, a senior vice president of Norse, told CBS News “Sony was not just hacked, this is a company that was essentially nuked from the inside.” Stammberger continues on to state “We are very confident that this was not an attack master-minded by North Korea and that insiders were key to the implementation of one of the most devastating attacks in history.”

That is because these Federal agencies were not created to take care of the public in an emergency but to protect the government itself.

 

 

 

Bush & Cheney Should Be Charged with War Crimes: Richard Clarke, Col. Wilkerson

It’s a miracle that the reality bubble created by the evil faction who hijacked our government may actually burst, after over a decade of fake news and cover-ups about the deeply criminal nature of the people who launched the war in Iraq.

Calls are increasing for the prosecution of George W. Bush administration officials tied to the CIA torture program. On Monday, the American Civil Liberties Union and Human Rights Watch called on Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor who would investigate the crimes detailed in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on the program.

On Monday, The New York Times editorial board called for a full and independent criminal investigation. We put the question about prosecution to Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who served as chief of staff to Secretary of State Colin Powell from 2002 to 2005.

Why America would be foolish to wage a cyber-war against North Korea

North Korea’s creaky internet crashed for nine hours on Monday, and is now mostly back up. This outage is probably no coincidence. Many observers assume that the Obama administration is behind it, retaliating to what the government called North Korean “cyber vandalism” aimed at Sony Pictures. That attack, as everyone knows, led Sony to cancel the release of a comedy, The Interview, about the assassination of North Korea’s young leader, Kim Jong Un.

If President Obama did launch an undeclared cyberwar against North Korea, it may well be the equivalent of Bill Clinton launching cruise missiles at Osama bin Laden’s empty training camps back in the 1990s. Clinton’s salvo was never a real strategy to deal with a growing threat, and resulted only in intensified attacks. Obama may be making a similar mistake now.

 

 

 

Still reeling from summer assault, Gaza faces new Israeli threats

Muhammad al-Gharib says his life was turned upside down when his father and younger sister were killed in an airstrike during Israel’s 51-day offensive on the Gaza Strip this past summer.

Shortly after his father, Baha, 58, and his sister, Ola, 16, stepped out of their home in Rafah on 29 July, they were directly struck by an Israeli missile. “They were only about two hundred meters [218 yards] from the house when they died,” al-Gharib, a first-year university student, told The Electronic Intifada. “We ran outside and couldn’t believe what we saw. They were dead.”

Ebola Update: CDC Lab Error May Have Caused Exposure

A laboratory technician in Atlanta may have been exposed to the Ebola virus, reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

A small amount of material from an Ebola virus experiment that was transported Monday from one lab to another may have contained live virus. The material was on a sealed plate but should not have been moved into the second laboratory, the CDC said in a statement.

There was no exposure outside the secure laboratory and no exposure or risk to the public, the CDC says. The mistake was discovered by laboratory scientists Tuesday.

The lab technician who processed the material has no symptoms of the illness, the CDC says, and will be monitored for 21 days. Others who entered the lab will be assessed for possible exposure.

The Saudi ‘Oil Strategy': Motives And Consequencies

Saudi Arabia will suffer from a $39 billion deficit of the government’s budget in 2015. The reason related to the accelerated crude oil production, and the subsequent reduction in oil prices.
However, Saudi oil minister Ali al-Naimi announced that the kingdom will not reduce oil output, even the barrel’s price would touch the $20. Al-Naimi said: “it is not in the interest of OPEC producers to cut their production, whatever the price is,”…”Whether it goes down to $20, $40, $50, $60, it is irrelevant,”
A worthy question rises here: why does the Saudi Arabian regime insist on accelerated oil production despite of budget deficit?

Russian president Putin suggested that a U.S.-Saudi ‘conspiracy’ to flood oil market “not ruled out”.

7 Things You Must Know to Be a Free-Thinker

We all have a certain degree of admiration for those forward-thinkers who were ahead of their time or for those free-spirited individuals who had the courage, the will and the foresight to speak out their minds despite risking being labelled as non-conformists and cast to the outer fringes of society. Well, truth be told, that is never a real threat for free thinkers. Actually that is where they belong and makes them what they are. Free-thinkers breathe and thrive at the margins of society where structure and chaos cross at the borderline. If you want to be a free thinker, embrace chaos, novelty, disruptive change and non-conformity. Free-thinkers live on the brink of social breakdown. They live on the edge, away from the anaesthesia of normalcy and institutionalised control.

The Shared Genetic Heritage of Jews and Palestinians

The Times recently carried this unusual report on an Israeli Jew (Tsvi Misinai, a retired computer expert) who’s hoping to prove that Palestinians are descended from Jews. Apparently, he thinks that proving this will help to stop the bloodshed. His idea is that modern Jews are descended from emigration in the first few centuries of the Christian era. The Jews who stayed put in Palestine converted to Islam, and became Palestinian Arabs. There’s hope that genetic tests might be able to prove this.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

“I was completely swept along with my own compulsion. I don’t know how else to put it. It didn’t satisfy me completely so maybe I was thinking another one will.

China to Start Payments With Russia in National Currencies on December 29

The China Foreign Exchange Trade System has announced that since December 29, China, Russia, Malaysia and New Zealand will start the usage of national currencies in mutual transactions. Beijing hopes to make the yuan an alternative to the US dollar in global trade.

Earlier in December, China’s Minister of Commerce Gao Hucheng claimed that China could increase the usage of yuan in trade with Russia amid the ruble’s depreciation, which falls in line with China’s intention to increase the usage of national currencies in international payments in order to weaken the US dollar’s dominance in global finance and promote the yuan as an alternative.

Notice that recently on the non-news presstitute TV shows, North Korea has been increasingly demonized by the US.

Because China has a defense pact with North Korea ( the Sino-North Korean Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty, which lasts through 2021), a US war against North Korea would be a back door to a war with China, to prevent the assent of the yuan in the world economy.

 

 

 

IDF Deploys Iron Dome in Prep for Possible Gaza War

After sniper fire critically wounds soldier and Hamas terrorist leader killed, IDF taking steps indicating escalation may be on the way.

After a Bedouin IDF soldier was critically wounded on Wednesday by terrorist sniper fire from southern Gaza, the IDF lifted a gag order late Thursday acknowledging it has deployed Iron Dome missile defense batteries in Israel’s south.

The two batteries were placed in the Be’er Sheva region and Netivot region, but according to Walla! the IDF didn’t elaborate regarding the reason for placing the batteries at this particular junction in time at those particular locations – both of which were hard hit in Operation Protective Edge.

However, the general assessment is that the IDF is preparing for a possible escalation with Hamas after the Wednesday attack that could easily lead to another operation, which would make the fourth since 2008, a year after Hamas violently wrested control over Gaza.

Apparently, the writer of this article believes that winning an election, which was precisely what Hamas did in 2008, equates to having “violently wrested control over Gaza.”

Folks, if Israel goes into Gaza again, it will be indulging in serial genocide against the Palestinians: there is no pretty, clean way to put this.

IF they get GPS coordinates for schools and hospitals from the UN’s human rights Rapporteur for Gaza, sheltering women and children, the IDF will again use that information for blowing up those facilities, with refugees still within them, insisting that it was the Palestinians who booby trapped them with bombs, so the buildings had to be… eliminated. That the innocent will die and be maimed for life in these attacks is of no concern to either the Israeli government or the IDF.

And if this happens, I would almost be willing to bet real money that it will happen right between Christmas and New Year’s celebrations, when most of the world’s leadership is taking it easy, and Americans are focused on food and football.

Russia’s new military doctrine lists NATO, US as major foreign threats

Russia has adopted an updated version of its military doctrine, which reflects the emergence of new threats against its national security. NATO military buildup and American Prompt Global Strike concept are listed among them.

The new doctrine was approved on Friday by President Vladimir Putin. Its core remains unchanged from the previous version. The Russian military remains a defensive tool which the country pledges to use only as a last resort.

Also unchanged are the principles of the use of nuclear weapons which Russia adheres to. Their primary goal is to deter potential enemies from attacking Russia, but it would use them to protect itself from a military attack – either nuclear or conventional – threatening its existence.

The new sections of the doctrine outline the threat Russia sees in NATO’s expansion and military buildup and the fact that the alliance is taking upon itself “global functions realized with violation of international law.”

Considering the aggressive nature of NATO’s expansion right on Russia’s doorstep, one has to marvel at Putin’s restraint, so far.

US to Spike Private Mercenaries in Iraq Amid Expanding War, Says Senior Official

The U.S. government is preparing to hike the number of private mercenary forces in Iraq, as part of the expanding war in that country and neighboring Syria, an anonymous senior U.S. official told Reuters. There are currently at least 1,800 private contractors in Iraq, and the official said it is not immediately clear how many additional mercenaries will be sent, according to Reuters. Nonetheless, journalists Warren Strobel and Phil Stewart note, the plan to boost numbers “underscores Obama’s growing commitment in Iraq. When U.S. troops and diplomats venture into war zones, contractors tend to follow, doing jobs once handled by the military itself.”

Rebels in Syria’s Aleppo Announce ‘Total Merger’

Rebel factions in Syria are announcing new alliances and umbrella factions every few weeks, usually restricted to small factions or small amounts of territory. Today’s seems to be one of the biggest.

This new announcement, reported by rebel mouthpiece the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, is in the key northern Aleppo Province, where Syrian military forces are trying to take the city of Aleppo, once the nation’s industrial and financial capital.

The new alliance includes the Islamic Front and several smaller factions, who have agreed to a “total merger under one flag and united leadership.” The united group will be called the Shamiyya Front

One has to wonder: do some of these rebels include the White House’s alleged “moderate, vetted rebels”?!?

US police struggle to monitor threats posted to social media as protests grow

U.S. law enforcement agencies are a long way from being able to effectively track threats of the kind a gunman posted on Instagram before his execution-style murder of two New York City policemen last weekend.

Police need more data analytics and mining software to monitor social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter , as well as trained personnel to make sense of what could be a deluge of data, say law enforcement officials and security experts.

“You can buy all the technology you want, but if you want to figure out clever stuff, you better have smart people able to use it,” said Christopher Ahlberg, co-founder of Recorded Future Inc, which helps clients analyze social media feeds. The company is partly backed by In-Q-Tel, a venture capital firm that serves U.S. intelligence agencies.

We’ve been having flashpoints, nationally, of the killing of unarmed black men by police, where these police personnel have not been indicted for these killings, followed by the horrible assassination of two New York police, coupled with numbers of threats against the police.

I would like to start with our potential “Manchurian Candidate”, Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who murdered those police officers in New York.
As reported at: http://www.newsday.com:

Ismaaiyl Brinsley’s mother tells the Daily News (http://nydn.us/1zcYJUF ) in a story published Tuesday that she’s horrified and “deeply sorry” about what her son did. Shakuwra Dabre says her 28-year-old son made suicide attempts starting at age 13, was institutionalized and was on and off antidepressants for years. She says that he rebuffed his family’s pleas to get help and that she last spoke to him in July.

The literature in indesputable, regarding the reality that antidipressants can cause homocidal or suicidal behaviour.

This man was also a convicted felon.

And having said this, the question has to arise: where did he get the gun with which he committed both homocide and (conveniently) suicide?!? That appears to be a rather murky area in the case.

So I have to ask myself, who benefits from these protests, some of which, as in Ferguson, and Berkeley, Missouri, and in Oakland, California, where things were characterized this morning on one of the talking heads shows, as “out of hand”?!? Who benefits from this violence, where businesses get invaded, or worse, torched to the ground?!?

And who benefits from the horrific assassinations of police personnel, who most probably had not done anything wrong in their treatment of suspects?!?

What is supposed to be the ultimate outcome of these demonstrations, which appear to be gathering strength, and developing lives of their own?!?

I cannot say that I know definitively, but I will hazard a guess.

IF these protests continue, nationally and violently, it would give the Federal Government the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and impose martial law. And do not think for a moment that Obama wouldn’t issue such an executive order; the man abhors the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

So a note to all protesters: I absolutely support your right of peaceful assembly, to redress the wrongs of government.

I know, absolutely, that I have not a clue about what it would feel like to be immediately considered “guilty before proven innocent” because of my race.

But please, do not listen to those advocating violence; they well may be agents provocateurs with an agenda. And that agenda includes destroying your right to peacefully protest, ever again.

The militarization of America’s police has to stop, and immediately. Brutality against ALL American citizens needs to stop. IF American police need to be taught anything right now, it is de-escalation techniques, to get a bad situation from turning worse without any bloodshed.

The training of American police by Israeli Defense Force professionals has to stop, because this means that Americans are getting treated as well by their police as Palestinians are by the Israeli military.

Critics hate ‘The Interview’

Movie critics say the controversy surrounding “The Interview” is much more interesting than the movie itself

The movie is scoring just a 50 percent positive review from critics on the Rotten Tomatoes website.

It’s fairing even more poorly with top critics, who give it a measly 32 percent positive rating.

NSA releases decade’s worth of damaging intelligence reports in Christmas Eve document dump

At approximately 1:30 p.m. EST on Christmas Eve, the National Security Agency responded to a Freedom of Information Act request from the American Civil Liberties Union by releasing more than a decade’s worth of incriminating quarterly and annual reports, David Lerman at Bloomberg News reports.

According to the heavily redacted reports to the President’s Intelligence Oversight Board, intelligence operatives routinely emailed private data on American citizens to unauthorized recipients, stored that data in unsecured computers, and retained it long after laws required it be destroyed.

“The government conducts sweeping surveillance under this authority — surveillance that increasingly puts Americans’ data in the hands of the NSA,” the ACLU’s Patrick C. Toomey told Bloomberg News in an email. “Despite that fact, this spying is conducted almost entirely in secret and without legislative or judicial oversight.”

There is no legislative or judicial oversight, because, most likely the NSA has ALL the dirt on all who might be in a position to try to stop this total surveillance, and they have been threatened into silence.

How quickly this nation has morphed from the “land of the free and the home of the brave” into “the land of the cowed and the home of the surveilled”!

And please remember: everything Hitler did was absolutely legal, at the time he did it.

Osama bin Laden dead: Blackout during raid on bin Laden compound

Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the US special forces was cut off.

A photograph released by the White House appeared to show President Barack Obama and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound.

The above photo is supposedly of the White House staff deep in concentration while watching the execution of Bin Laden. But it is a posed and staged shot. Nobody bothered to turn on the laptop computers on the table!

Putin Cancels New Year’s Holiday for Government Workers

Russian President Vladimir Putin cancelled the extended New Year holiday for government ministers because of the ongoing financial crisis, informing the agencies they must work to help strengthen the economy and take protectionary measures in the face of a combination of governmental mismanagement, dropping oil prices, and economic sanctions that have caused considerable panic in Moscow in recent weeks.

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson seeks to buff image in Israel

In his first visit to Israel, the prospective Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said he was in awe of the Jewish state, inspired by its ancient holy sites, impressed by the resilience of people living in a perpetual conflict zone – and deeply disappointed in President Barack Obama.

“I do not believe that Obama has been one to cultivate the relationship,” said Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has emerged as a favourite of some conservatives in the early field of possible GOP candidates.

I am not voting for anyone who launches their campaign with a trip to Israel, ever again!

 

 

 

Plane Passenger Tossed after Flipping Out Over Staff’s ‘Merry Christmas’

A passenger was tossed off a plane at La Guardia Airport on Tuesday after flipping out — because airline workers wished him a merry Christmas.

The man was waiting to board American Airlines Flight 1140 to Dallas when a cheerful gate agent began welcoming everyone with the Yuletide greeting while checking boarding passes.

The grumpy passenger, who appeared to be traveling alone, barked at the woman, “You shouldn’t say that because not everyone celebrates Christmas.”

The agent replied, “Well, what should I say then?”

Note that the man’s identity and religious background were not mentioned in this article. Had he been Muslim, it’d be all over the press. Therefore the man was probably Jewish. And I never met a Muslim who was offended by “Merry Christmas.”
