Anthony Lawson - "The Crocodile Tears of the Press Corps Crying: Freedom!"

It’s a crocodile-tear fest of so-called journalists and their lawyers, and it nearly made me sick when I first watched it. To start with, how can the press [the term should be taken to mean the media in general] be free if it is over 90% owned and controlled by interests that have an agenda which almost certainly has nothing to do with freedom of the kind of information that the public should be given?

It’s an issue of Need to know:
We’ll give the people only the information that
we think they Need to know.

What we really need to know is:
When are you press people going to get honest?

Russia demands publication of recordings from downed flight MH17

The data from the black boxes should be published, says Russia's deputy defence minister, saying the 'Boeing catastrophe throws up more and more questions'

Russia is demanding to know why international investigators have yet to publish the black box data from a Malaysian airliner that was shot down over eastern Ukraine in July, a deputy defence minister said in an interview published on Saturday.

Moscow blames Ukraine for the disaster, in which all 298 passengers and crew were killed. In a version of events widely believed in the West, Ukraine says the Boeing 777 was shot down by pro-Russian separatists with a surface-to-air missile.

How the US Enables Israel

Following the Israeli attack on Egypt in 1967, the US has been the primary supplier of advanced weaponary to Israel. However, by continuing to arm Israel today, the US violates its own laws, in particular, the Arms Export Control Act (Public Law 90-829), that prohibits its weapons being used against civilians.

Dunkin' Donuts Worker's Death Reveals The True Cost Of Our Low-Wage, Part-Time Economy

A New Jersey woman died earlier this week trying to catch a few hours of sleep between jobs, a chilling reminder of the struggle low-wage workers, particularly women, face making ends meet.

Police found Maria Fernandes dead in her car on Monday night, parked in a convenience-store parking lot in Elizabeth, N.J., according to a police press release. Fernandes, 32, was wearing a Dunkin’ Donuts uniform when she was found. A friend and fellow employees told officials she worked as many as four jobs, said Lt. Daniel Saulnier, a spokesman for the Elizabeth police department.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Did no one at any of her jobs understand how extremely dangerous and difficult her situation was?!? And working 4 jobs, just to survive, when did THAT become corporate America's answer to the "American Dream"?!?

Was there not any family willing to help out?!? Where was just a touch of love and humanity for this woman which could have saved her?!?

I am sure none of the executives of Dunkin' Donuts are losing any sleep over this incident; this woman's death was simply collateral damage, and she was completely expendible; after all, there will be hundreds of others clamoring to get her job, right?!?

Corporations by definition have no morals whatsoever, and are simply obligated to provide profits for shareholders, period, end of discussion.

George Galloway Attacked in the Street over Israel Remarks

Webmaster's Commentary:

BEX ALERT - THE LAPTOP OF DEATH: THE SEQUEL!

Laptop reportedly seized from ISIS hideout hints at bio weapons attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Long time readers will recall that this stunt was tried before, with a "Laptop of death" that supposedly proved Iran was working on a nuclear weapon. Experts quickly determined that the "evidence" was gobbledegook that made non sense at all, most of it clearly copies of online drawings and graphs. That laptop was eventually traced back to Israel.

If at first you don't succeed, lie, lie again!

So here we are with the sequel, another laptop supposedly with incriminating evidence of a coming biological act of terror. But even if someone was going to have such incriminating evidence on a laptop (as opposed to keeping it on a thumb drive kept on one's person) why would they not encrypt it? As we demonstrated with our whatreallyhappened.com NSA Challenge, it is trivial to create new methods of encryption the NSA cannot breach. If I can do it, clearly ISIS has the resources to do it as well! But apparently the warhawks are unable to come up with any news ideas to trick us into wars, so they are replaying the "Laptop of death" even though the previous one was eventually exposed as a fraud, as this one undoubtedly will prove to be.

Permanent temps: What your life as an ‘elderly migrant’ worker will be like when you can’t retire

Jessica Bruder: Though no one keeps an official tally of how many older Americans are doing this kind of work, their ranks appear to be growing rapidly in the wake of the housing bust and market crashes.

Amazon first hired a handful of migrant full-time RVers in 2008 through a program the company later named “CamperForce.” As of 2014, it had expanded to employ some 2,000 workers, according to a recruiter I met in Quartzsite, Arizona. The American Crystal Sugar Company taps the same labor pool each fall to staff its annual sugar beet harvest, and their recruitment numbers are up, too. This year, they’re hoping to recruit 600 “workampers,” up from 450 the year before.

LP: What’s the gender breakdown among these traveling workers? What kinds of work are men and women doing?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

At a time when people should be enjoying at least some leisure, far too many Americans are working like slaves at rock bottom wages.

What is wrong with this?!?

Iran says U.S. new sanctions contrary to nuclear talks

The new sanctions imposed on Iranian individuals and firms by the United States violate spirit of ongoing nuclear talks, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said here on Saturday.

The move is inconsistent with the current process of negotiations between Iran and the P5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany) aimed at resolving the nuclear issue, Afkham was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.

"The Islamic Republic of Iran denounces any unilateral sanctions by the United States," Afkham said, adding that "we are not afraid of sanctions. The government has handled the (domestic) affairs despite sanctions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The preliminary P5+1 deal was for Iran to comply with reductions on their nuclear technology and in return the US would ease sanctions. Iran kept their part of the bargain and the US promptly cranked the sanctions up higher.

Ukraine’s Militia Uses Soviet Weaponry From Captured Warehouses - Defense Ministry

Self-defense forces in southeastern Ukraine are using the captured Soviet equipment that they got at the abandoned warehouses and captured Ukrainian forces' equipment depots, while they do not receive anything from Russia, Russia’s Deputy Defense Minister Anatoly Antonov said Saturday in an interview with Slovak television.

“When the USSR collapsed, the Ukrainian territory was replete with millions of guns, mines, artillery systems and other weapons," Antonov said.

“The area where the combat activities are held today, where Kiev leads its punitive operation, is no exception — there were weaponry warehouses which the militia seized," he added.

Activists gather for week-long protests against NATO

As world leaders prepare to attend the NATO Summit in Newport next week, campaigners are mobilising for a week of protest and debate to challenge this ‘interventionist, expansionist, military club.’

A mass demonstration against NATO will take place in Newport tomorrow (Saturday 30 August), while a Counter-Summit will be held on Sunday 31 August at Cardiff County Hall, and on Monday 1 September in Newport.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NATO has simply become a ossified war machine on steroids.

And not a particularly effective one at that, if you look at the condition of the occupation of Afghanistan, where there is absolutely no military metric by which the occupation can be judged as a "success".

NATO planning 'rapid-deployment force' of 10,000 troops to counter Russia

NATO is reportedly working towards the creation of an expeditionary force composed of 10,000 troops from seven different member states as a result of escalating tensions with Russia over the conflict in Ukraine.

According to the Financial Times, the force’s creation will be spearheaded by Britain and involve contributions from Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Norway, and the Netherlands. Canada is also interested in joining the group, but it’s not known what its final decision will be.

Although no formal announcement has been made, British Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to declare its formation at the upcoming NATO summit in Wales on September 4th.

Many specifics have yet to be worked out or announced, but planners are reportedly implementing ways to increase the number of soldiers involved even more if necessary. Air and naval units will be integrated into the group, as well as ground troops led by British commanders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This NATO move is a prelude to war between Russia, China, and the West to determine which currency will remain on the ascendent.

Syrian Rebels Attack UN Peacekeepers in Golan Heights

Clashes erupted between al-Qaida-linked Syrian rebels and U.N. peacekeepers in the Golan Heights on Saturday after the militants surrounded their encampment, activists and officials said, as the international organization risked being sucked further into the conflict.

Other U.N. peacekeepers were able to flee from a different encampment that that was also surrounded by rebels of the Nusra Front, al-Qaida’s Syrian affiliate, they said.

The clashes came after Syrian rebel groups, including the Nusra Front, overran the Quneitra crossing — located on the frontier between Syrian and Israeli controlled parts of the Golan Heights — on Wednesday, seizing 44 Fijian peacekeepers.

The Nusra Front also surrounded the nearby Rwihana and Breiqa encampments, where other U.N. peacekeepers were holed up.

Speaking Laughter to Power

Laughter is a political laxative. Ridicule the political system because it is a joke and at politicians because they can survive anything but ridicule. Imagine a campaign speech at which every audience member pointed a finger of derision at the candidate and giggled. Nothing could disconcert the candidate more nor make a better public statement. Guffaw at election promises, snicker at spin, and belly-laugh at claims of achievement. And if politicians hit back, as Augustus Caesar did, then let the morning headlines read, “Activists imprisoned for Laughing.”In his essay “Ridicule as a Weapon ,” Professor of Communications Michael Waller summed up the reason for radicals to laugh. “To the enemy, ridicule can be worse than death. At least many enemies find death to be a supernatural martyrdom. Ridicule is much worse: destruction without martyrdom: A fate worse than death. And they have to live with it.”

Kissinger says concept of modern era order is in crisis

Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger has said that the concept of order that has underpinned the modern era is in crisis.

In an article published by The Wall Street Journal on Friday, Kissinger explained that the current crises across the world have changed the order. . .

. . . He also said that the contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another.

The article was adapted from Kissinger’s book "World Order," which will be published Sept. 9.

A “Ring of Steel” – The UK Spends $80 Million on a Massive Fence to Protect Politicians Ahead of NATO Summit

Although the new threat level rates the risk of an attack on the UK to “highly likely,” Home Secretary Theresa May stated that “there was no evidence to suggest one was imminent.” Well then.

It makes you wonder if the the change in threat level is being used in part to justify the extraordinary $80 million sum spent on building a fortress around the Newport and Cardiff city centers in Wales, which many are describing as “similar to the Berlin Wall,” or a “zoo,” in an unprecedented display of protection for many of the world’s most corrupt politicians.

Will the Ferguson Shooting Mark a Historic Shift in the Police State?

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Only time will tell, but is it too soon to guess whether the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown will mark a turning point in our march toward tyranny in America? There are signs that this could be the case. Yes this could be an overly optimistic assumption about the current direction of the police state in America, but there is a slight chance that the consciousness that came with the Ferguson shooting may have been a badly needed cure to the metastasizing police state problem...

The Israeli Blackmail Machine: The Clintons Weren’t the Only Ones

A powerful new book released at the end of July has brought to light how racy phone sex conversations between Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky were wiretapped circa 1997-98, and used as a blackmail against the White House by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Clinton Inc. :The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine, states that Netanyahu was using intercepted phone sex conversations between the president and Lewinsky to force the release of American Jonathan Pollard, who had been caught spying on behalf of the Israelis. Clinton was keen to play ball with Netanyhu and soon followed with a desperate plea to release Pollard but was denied at the time by CIA director George Tenet.

Every year the US flies about five hundred missions around China - as well as monitoring from the sea and from satellites. Andrew K. P.

How Badly Is Fukushima Radiation Damaging the Pacific Ocean?

Richard Wilcox, PhD
Activist Post

I watched some wonderful movies over the summer with “ocean” themes and one was with Robert Redford called All is Lost. The entertainment value was good but it also made a statement about Man's interference with Nature and how nature can strike back. I love films like All is Lost, Master and Commander, in which the imperial navy visits the Galapagos Islands and “Kon Tiki,” a story about a 4,000 mile trek across the ocean, because they show the unspeakable beauty and power of the world's great oceans. Can humans actually destroy them?

Over the past year we've read many news stories about mass die-offs of marine species in the Pacific Ocean and other regions. One hypothesis in the alternative media is that the massive radiation released from the Fukushima nuclear disaster is the cause. Others blame over-fishing, pollution or climatic events...

Kiev’s Dirty War

by Stephen Lendman |
Rogue terror states wage wars the same way. America does it. So does Israel.
Kiev’s illegitimate fascist government operates extrajudicially. Rule of law principles don’t apply.
Dirty war is waged on its own non-combatant men, women and children. Residential neighborhoods are bombed and shelled.

Banned chemical and other terror weapons are used. Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) member of parliament Miroslav Rudenko said:
“According to our soldiers’ information, the Ukrainian forces are using chemical ammunition on DPR territory.”
“Once a shell bursts, a gas affecting sense organs is emitted. We have this information.”
In early June, Southeastern Ukrainian freedom fighters said Kiev forces attacked Semyonovka near Slaviansk with an unknown chemical weapon.

On August 6, freedom fighters claimed “irrefutable evidence” of a weapon used similar to white phosphorous.
It burns flesh to the bone. It keeps burning until entirely consumed or deprived of oxygen.

The Washington Post And "Secular Extremists"

The Washington Post editorial page reads like a collection of funnies. Sorry ones though.
There you have the wife of the Polish foreign minister preparing for total war with Russia. Yeah, lets roll out the nukes already! The winner of course, with Europe then devastated, would be the U.S. economy. Those radiating bits left of it.
But the idea might be better than asking the Russian oligarchs to assassinate Putin like a former CIA honcho does. Or better than the idea of an air bombing campaign against Novorossiya right next to the Russia's border and its excellent air-defenses.
There really are a lot of crazy people around. Surely the editors of the Washington Post are part of them. Yesterday they wrote this crazy nonsense:
IF ANY international norm can still be called uncontroversial, it is the stricture against cross-border aggression by one sovereign state against another. Certainly any failure to enforce it in one place invites violations elsewhere.

Microsoft And Privacy Violations: U.S. Judge Rules Microsoft Must Handover Personal Data

“Microsoft has been told it must handover emails stored abroad to US prosecutors by a New York court. However, the software giant says it will fight the ruling, saying that an email deserves the same privacy protection as a paper letter sent by mail.

The company says they will not release any emails to US authorities, while it appeals the ruling, made by Chief Judge Loretta Preska of the US District Court in Manhattan. She said that Microsoft must hand over information, regardless of where it was stored.

"Microsoft will not be turning over the email and plans to appeal,” a Microsoft spokesperson told Reuters. "Everyone agrees this case can and will proceed to the appeals court. This is simply about finding the appropriate procedure for that to happen."

Respect MP George Galloway hit repeatedly around head by attacker who 'called him Hitler' as firebrand politician posed for pictures on street in Notting Hill

Outspoken MP George Galloway has left hospital with severe bruising after he was punched repeatedly in the face and called 'Hitler' in a west London street attack, says spokesman.

The Respect MP for Bradford West was posing for pictures in Notting Hill when he was 'leapt on' and assaulted last night by a man yelling comments about the Holocaust.

He has been receiving death threats and hate mail after calling for Bradford to be 'declared an Israel-free zone' three weeks ago, according to his spokesman.

He said: 'George was posing for pictures with people and this guy just attacked him, leapt on him and started punching him and calling him Hitler.

'It appears to be connected with his comments about Israel because the guy was shouting about the Holocaust.

'He has been receiving a huge amount of death threats and hate mail since saying this.'

Miko Peled # Zionism Must Go #Free Palestine, End the Occupation

Miko Peled talks of Changing the Conversation on Palestine.

"Connecting Gaza back to Palestine"

He began by saying: “To understand what happened in Gaza recently, you must go back to Balfour and to 1947”

“It is impossible to talk about Gaza, without talking about 1947 and 1948 and so on…”

He notes an attempt is being made to isolate Gaza from the rest of Palestine. Which is what Israel, the U.S. and the Europeans have been doing. By isolating it, they are stopping the solution.

Palestine is not Gaza and the West Bank. Palestine is the Galilee, it is Jerusalem, it is Jaffa and it is Haifa, it is the entire country, he notes.

The Peace talks and all these so-called efforts is an attempt to bring the Palestinians to surrender. But, the Palestinians will not surrender. And Hamas will not go away.

Hamas is an resistance organization. It was established as a result of a brutal Oppression and Occupation.

NATO accuses Russia of violating Ukraine's sovereignty

In a blunt statement Friday, NATO condemned Russian military action in Ukraine, saying its troops have "illegally crossed the border" as part of a "dangerous pattern over many months" to destabilize its neighbor.

NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, speaking after a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine commission, was unsparing in his criticism of Russia, charging that its forces were directly engaged in military operations inside Ukraine, continued to supply separatists with tanks, armored vehicles, artillery and rocket launchers and had fired on Ukraine from both Russian territory and within Ukraine itself.

"This is a blatant violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity," Rasmussen said. "It defies all diplomatic efforts for a peaceful solution."

It certainly is a fine mess the warmaking establishment has gotten the US into. From the Middle East and South Asia to Europe, war and threats of war are once again the stuff of the daily news. Inflamed by warmongers in the media who would put William Randolph Hearst to shame and fostered by a legislature beholden to the gods of war and their corporate minions here on earth, the present situation is dismal at best.

Fact-Checking Obama

Obama long ago lost credibility. Nothing he says can be believed. He lies, deceives and misinforms.

His political career reflects it. He can't be trusted.

On August 28, he held a short press conference. He did so ahead of America's Labor Day weekend.

He began with a statement before taking questions. It's painful listening to his dissembling.

HSBC awards 15 top bankers £7.1m in move to sidestep bonus rules

HSBC has given 15 of its top bankers “fixed pay allowance arrangements” worth £7.1m under a controversial new pay scheme designed to dodge tough new European Union rules on bankers’ bonuses.

Britain’s biggest bank awarded Samir Assaf, the head of its investment bank, £1.5m worth of shares, and chief executive Stewart Gulliver was given shares worth £850,000.

Peter Wong, deputy chairman and head of the Asia-Pacific region, was given £760,000 worth. Iain Mackay, finance director, and Marc Moses, chief risk officer, got £470,000 worth.

The awards are part of big banks’ plans to increase the basic pay of executives to sidestep tough new EU rules designed to clamp down on excessive bonuses.

Britain facing 'greatest terrorist threat' in history

Britain faces the “greatest and deepest” terror threat in the country’s history, David Cameron warned as he pledged emergency measures to tackle extremists.

The UK threat level was raised to “severe” — its second highest — meaning that a terrorist attack is “highly likely” in light of the growing danger from British jihadists returning from Iraq and Syria.

The Prime Minister said that the risk posed by Isil (the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) will last for “decades” and raised the prospect of an expanding terrorist nation “on the shores of the Mediterranean”.

He disclosed that Isil had made “specific” threats against the UK and did not rule out military action to tackle the growing problem.

How Will Gaza's Children Carry Their Scars Into Adulthood?

The children who survive Operation Protective Edge will emerge to find their previous lives almost unrecognizable, as the families, schools, hospitals and mosques that framed their world are systematically destroyed.
by Olivia Watson |
Israel’s ground invasion of the Gaza Strip has seen the child death toll climb so rapidly – at the rate of one child killed every hour – that the exact circumstances of each killing are now barely mentioned in reports. But lists of fatalities, 329 and rising, obscure the reality that awaits Palestinian children in Gaza. Those who survive will emerge to find their previous lives almost unrecognizable, as the families, schools, hospitals and mosques that framed their world are systematically destroyed.

The U.S. Government Is Creeping Into Syria

America’s creeping into Syria under the pretext of fighting its own evil offspring will likely backfire in the Ukrainian context

“The US has claimed it will begin reconnaissance flights over Syria – a tentative first step toward direct military intervention it has sought in attempts to overthrow the Syrian government since 2011. While the US is using the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq (ISIS) as a pretext to carry out these intrusions into Syrian territory, it was the US itself that created and to this day perpetuates ISIS and other extremist militant fronts amid a documented attempt to reorder the entire Middle East.

What is expected to follow is an incremental expansion of US military intervention in eastern Syria that will include further arming and funding of the very terrorist networks it claims it is violating Syria’s borders to attack, culminating in eventual military operations carried out against the Syria government itself.

Europe closer to deflation as investors wait for ECB move

Europe edged closer towards the deflation abyss on Friday as the inflation rate across the single-currency bloc fell to a five-year low of just 0.3 per cent.

The latest decline — driven by falling food and energy prices — comes as the region attempts to shake off economic stagnation, and fuels calls for European Central Bank president Mario Draghi to launch a large-scale money-printing programme.

Draghi said last week the option was on the table to kick-start growth, but Germany signalled opposition to such a move today as finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble warned the ECB “doesn’t have the instruments” to fight deflation. A sanctions war with Russia is meanwhile threatening economic prospects.

UK terror threat raised to severe: Theresa May warns 'attack is highly likely'

The terror threat in Britain has been raised from "substantial" to "severe" in response to conflicts in Iraq and Syria, the Home Secretary Theresa May has announced.

'Severe' means that a terrorist attack is "highly likely", although Ms May stressed that there is no information to suggest an attack is imminent.

It is the fourth highest out of five levels of threat, with the highest being 'critical'. It was last changed in 2011, when it was reduced back down to substantial.

Did Certain Foreign Governments Facilitate the 9/11 Attacks? - And why is the US government keeping the evidence a secret?

When I first started writing about the question of Israeli complicity in the 9/11 attacks, I was told that I would henceforth be consigned to the margins: I was a "truther," a crackpot, and, naturally, an "anti-Semite." But why, I asked, would Fox News – surely one of the most pro-Israel news organizations on the planet – have run a four-part series pointing the finger directly at Israel if it didn’t comport with the facts? Why is this a "conspiracy theory" if the CIA’s own National Counterintelligence Center was concerned enough about those "art students" to post a warning about them on its official web site? The NCC noted, in March, 2001:
“In the past six weeks, employees in federal office buildings located throughout the United States have reported suspicious activities connected with individuals representing themselves as foreign students selling or delivering artwork. Employees have observed both males and females attempting to bypass facility security and enter federal buildings.”

Supreme Court Finds Internet Speech Injunctions Violate the First Amendment

The Texas Supreme Court today ruled that orders preventing people who have been found liable for defamation from publishing further statements about the plaintiff are “prior restraints,” a remedy that the First Amendment rarely permits. Adopting a position advocated by EFF in an amicus brief, the court also delightfully quoted The Big Lebowski's Walter Sobchak: "For your information, the Supreme Court has roundly rejected prior restraint." It further rejected the argument that the ability of Internet publication to reach millions of readers almost instantaneously somehow required a change in First Amendment law.

Cambridge Mace's Lane Middle School Teacher on Administrative Leave

He's a man with many names, and the books he has written have raised the concerns of the Dorchester County Board of Education and the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office.

Early last week the school board was alerted that one of its eighth grade language arts teachers at Mace's Lane Middle School had several aliases. Police said that under those names, he wrote two fictional books about the largest school shooting in the country's history set in the future. Now, Patrick McLaw is placed on leave.

Dr. K.S. Voltaer is better known by some in Dorchester County as Patrick McLaw, or even Patrick Beale. Not only was he a teacher at Mace's Lane Middle School in Cambridge, but according to Dorchester Sheriff James Phillips, McLaw is also the author of two books: "The Insurrectionist" and its sequel, "Lillith's Heir."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So let me get this straight: this man was arrested for writing books of fiction that might be construed as criticizing the US government?!?

Involuntarily sent to a mental ward?!?

Elizabeth Warren Defends Israeli Shelling of Gaza Schools, Hospitals

The Israeli military has the right to attack Palestinian hospitals and schools in self defense if Hamas has put rocket launchers next to them, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said last week at a local town hall, according to the Cape Cod Times.

Warren, in defending her vote to send funds to Israel in the middle of its war with Hamas, said she thinks civilian casualties are the "last thing Israel wants."

"But when Hamas puts its rocket launchers next to hospitals, next to schools, they're using their civilian population to protect their military assets. And I believe Israel has a right, at that point, to defend itself," she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This woman is completely bought, completely naive, or completely insane, or perhaps a combination of all three!!

So, Senator Warren, why not have have an impartial forensics team examine these buildings, and their surroundings, for bombs: I am willing to bet that none will be found, or if they are there, they have been planted by the IDF to "appear" to have been placed their by Hamas.

And Senator Warren, please think a minute, if this process is not completely foreign to you: why would Hamas endanger their women and children by placing bombs in, or near a place of refuge?!?

The coordinates to these shelters were all given to the IDF by the UN to prevent slaughter, and what does the IDF with this information?!?!

Slaughter innocent women and children in a planned, carefully executed genocide, against people who had nothing to do with the fighting.

By making these statements, Senator Warren has put herself firmly on the side of Israeli genocide against Gazan Palestinians; against any true peace deal enabling a Palestinian state to exist, and someone who has "signed on" to the Israeli Government's "Final Solution to it's "Palestinian problem" by executing as many Palestinians as humanly possible.

This woman disgusts me.

Most Americans Now Support Airstrikes In Syria, Poll Shows

A majority of Americans think the United States should expand its military campaign against insurgents in Iraq into Syria as well, a new HuffPost/YouGov poll shows.

According to the poll, 60 percent of Americans now support airstrikes against insurgents in Syria, while 20 percent are opposed. That level of support approached the 64 percent of Americans in the survey who said they support the current airstrike campaign against Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Either these polls were polling the criminally insane, or doing "push polling", where the poll conductors know percisely where they will get a specific outcome to a specific question asked.

NO THINKING PERSON I KNOW SUPPORTS A MILITARY INTERVENTION IN SYRIA OR IRAQ.

But this is not about ISIS: it is about to whom the oil in the Middle East is sold, and in what currency. Such a military misadventure, as happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya (countries which are imploding, thanks to US military interventions) is all about the money. This is why our kids in our military are going to get killed or maimed for life: corporate profit.

I am watching the feed of one of the usual corporate shill presstitutes this morning, and we are being given the verbal/visual IV drip of "terror, terror, terror", and are told that the UK has raised its terror threat level to "severe".

Fear leads to illogic, hated of "the other", and completely zaps our ability to think rationally. It is almost as though the US and UK are working in lock step to create new false flags, perhaps in both the US and the UK.

Please understand: I am praying this doesn't happen. But if it does, please think: who benefits?!? It certainly will not be the British or American people who will benefit, who are already deep into harm's way economically, except for the 1 percenters. It will be engineered to jinn up more and more wars, to protect the supremacy of the dollar and line the pockets of the military industrial complex in both countries.

False Flag - The Movie!

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Click for larger image

I wish this were only humor, but right now we are seeing a repeat of the year 2001, where for months the corporate media promoted the idea of Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden as Uber Villains we were supposed to be afraid of, because they were coming to get us unless we got them first. So intense was the obvious advertising to promote the Osama "brand" that I wrote an article over at Free Republic in August of 2001 suggesting some grand deception was being planned centered on Osama, mere weeks before 9-11.

ISIS is starting to look like a repeat of that same propaganda strategy. ISIS, originally (if not still) a creation of the US and Israel, is being heavily promoted to us as the new replacement for Al Qaeda, the boogie man we are all supposed to be afraid of and blame when a loud "bang" happens. Apparently the US Government is totally convinced that We The People do not remember the fraud of 9-11, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, or Saddam's nukes, or Assad's gas, and think they can pull another fast one to get their war wagon back on track. But at this point, given that many of the ISIS video threats have already been exposed as hoaxes, together with the pathetic selfie with the ISIS flag in front of the White House, and the lame beheading video, we are being told that because of the wide open border with Mexico, ISIS is already here inside the United States, preparing to do something nasty, with the implication that they will be aided and supplied by the long list of nations the US wants to send your children off to invade! James Inhofe is making the rounds claiming that ISIS will blow up a US city, and Drudge is claiming Chicago will be the target!

Bill Gates gives Cornell $6.1 million to "depolarize" the GMO debate

Supported by a $5.6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Cornell Alliance for Science will help inform decision-makers and consumers through an online information portal and training programs to help researchers and stakeholders effectively communicate the potential impacts of agricultural technology and how such technology works.

The project will involve developing multimedia resources, including videos of farmers from around the world documenting their struggles to deal with pests, diseases, crop failure and the limited resources available in the face of poverty and climate change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Depolarize" ?!?!? Please, Bill, don't you understand how pathetically transparent you look through this move?!?

You are trying to buy consent, through this university program, to the widespread ownership, by corporations, of GMO seed stock, to the point where naturally occurring seed stock ceases to exist. And why?

The answer is very simple. As reported at infowars.com on Feb 12th, 2013:

Bill Gates is primarily known as the multi-billionaire who Microsoft, the company behind the most popular computer operating system known as Windows. With this massive wealth, he has retired from leading Microsoft and now instead focuses his money and time on furthering genetically modified technology, geoengineering, experimental vaccinations, and preaching about how Monsanto is the answer to world hunger. It should come as no surprise, then, that Gates owns 500,000 shares worth 23 million US dollars (or more) of Monsanto stock. The very same company that has been caught running slave rings in Argentina in which workers were forced to work 14+ hours a day while withholding payment, has used their massive finances to fund organizations that literally fake FDA quotes to support GMOs, and of course peddling through GMOs that have been linked to numerous health concerns. This is not even taking into account the farmer suicides that occur around every 30 minutes due to Monsanto’s failing GMO crop yield bankrupting small-time farmers in India’s notorious ‘suicide belt‘. Bill Gates Funding Corporations Caught in Child Slave Rings And if that’s not enough, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has even teamed up with Cargill to pump GMO soy into the third world. Cargill, of course, is the the 133 billion dollar corporation that also has been found in direct violation of human rights laws. Cargill was sued by the International Labor Rights Fund for trafficking children from Mali and forcing them to work on cocoa bean plantations for around 12 to 14 hours each day without pay, food, or sleep. The company even continues to purchase cotton from Uzbekistan, where it is well known that child slave labor is used in the cultivation.

It is all very simple. GMOS are in and of themself a population control device, because they can sicken, and kill, people who eat them. And then, let's not forget the epicyte genes, which contains anti-sperm antibodies, and cause the women who eat them to become sterile.

The very rich are very particular that the very poor die as quickly as possible, or at best, not be born.

I would suggest that Bill and Melinda Gates eat nothing but GMO foods for at least two years, then have their medical records published after that point in time, to promote GMO safety at the risk of their own, person health.

Of course, that will happen when pigs fly.

Easier to buy a university program to obtain compliance to your Monsanto-produced GMOs, right, Bill?!?

Pakistan Faces (Another) Military Coup As PM Charged With Murder

Having slammed the US for "liking only those governments in Muslim countries that are your slaves," opposition leader Imran Khan, just as we warned here, has given the army 24 hours to prepare a broad-based reform agreement on behalf of the government (having been asked by Prime Minister Sharif)... i.e. coup-prone Pakistan appears to be back under military rule (for now). Then things got even more bizarre as WSJ reports, Prime Minister Sharif is to face murder chargesrelated to the killing of 10 Muslim cleric Qadri's followers. Qadriu has agreed to wait 24 hours for the army response before announcing his strategy.

As The Times Of India reports,

Political crisis in Pakistan took a new turn on Thursday with Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif agreeing to face a murder case relating to the killing of 14 followers of cleric Tahir-ul-Qadri, as Imran Khan kept up pressure insisting on the embattled premier's resignation.

Poverty Capitalism in 2014 – Introducing Private Probation Companies

As N.P.R. reported in May, services that “were once free, including those that are constitutionally required,” are now frequently billed to offenders: the cost of a public defender, room and board when jailed, probation and parole supervision, electronic monitoring devices, arrest warrants, drug and alcohol testing, and D.N.A. sampling. This can go to extraordinary lengths: in Washington state, N.P.R. found, offenders even “get charged a fee for a jury trial — with a 12-person jury costing $250, twice the fee for a six-person jury.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Sweden, they are emptying their prisons, because the sole focus is rehabilitation, and that approach is working close to perfectly.

Chicago man waving ISIS flag out of vehicle window warns cops car is rigged with bomb: police

A Chicago man trailing an ISIS flag outside his car window is behind bars after leading cops on a chase and then telling officers the vehicle was rigged with explosives and would detonate if searched, police said.

Cops tried to pull over Emad Karakrah, 49, Wednesday morning after a caller noticed a suspicious vehicle around 9:15 a.m. on the city’s south side, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Karakrah apparently was proudly waving the black and white flag favored by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorists.

The man took off, leading officers through several red lights before a second patrol car corralled the fleeing flag-bearer.

As he was taken into custody, Karakrah warned officers the car contained a bomb and would explode if search by police, the paper reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This SO reeks of "false flag", in order to terrorize Americans, that I hardly know where to begin.

And the obvious kicker is that no explosive devices were found when the DHS and FBI inspected it.

Expect more of these "incidents" as a prelude to a real "false flag", to be blamed on the "usual suspects", and that well may be coming soon, to try to ignite the American public into another barking mad war frenzy.

But frankly, I do not believe, that even with another false flag, that the American people can be sold into another war at all. Americans are skeptical, and very war weary having seen flustercluck the US has made of its military interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.

They understand, now more than ever, that these military interventions, where our best and bravest young men and women get killed or maimed for life, are all about private profit.

In Iraq, it was about the oil; who got it, and in what nominations it was sold.

In Afghanistan, it is about the oil pipelines, the opium, and the riches of unexploited mineral wealth.

And in Libya, it was to prevent Gaddafi from instituting a gold-backed dinar, which would have absolutely crippled the worthless US dollar, backed by nothing more than the US government's military prowess.

So if it appears that the US government is trying to sell you another war (which they appear to be doing against Syria, Iraq, and Russia), just ask yourselves: who profits?!?!?

"A Man Of Many Perversions" – Federal Cybersecurity Head Convicted Of Child Porn Charges

The following story is a warning as to why centralized power is so dangerous. It doesn’t matter whether the power is political or corporate, overly centralized power in all forms must be resisted whenever it appears. The worst of all worlds is when centralized political and corporate power unite in an unholy alliance, which is what has happened to America in recent decades. When this occurs, the combined forces of oligarchy simply begin to rapaciously feast on the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of the United States in 2014.

UN Climate Chief: 'Not Very Far' from Considering 'Climate Change as a Public Health Emergency'

Secretary of State John Kerry has called climate change “the biggest challenge of all that we face right now,” and his French counterpart has warned of climate “chaos” in 500 days, and now the U.N. climate change chief is implying that climate change can be viewed on a par with the deadly Ebola outbreak.

Maine Sec. of State: Real ID “You might as well just repeal the Fourth Amendment”

Maine & Massachusetts residents may not be able to board a plane using their driver’s licenses starting in 2016 if the state does not start complying with the federal Real ID program.

In 2007, Maine became the first state to reject the federal regulations adopted in response to a study on national security after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Federal officials wanted to make driver’s licenses more uniform and secure, but opponents said the federal law was too sweeping and intrusive.

Non-compliance, however, has restricted the ability of residents from some states to access some federal buildings, and that is likely to increase.

The Real ID program is intended to make states’ requirements for driver’s licenses and identification cards more uniform and stringent.

The Real ID program is a REAL NIGHTMARE or a spying governments wet dream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last year, when Mike and I renewed our license, the State of Hawaii gave us the option of renewing for either 4 or 8 years, and we took the latter option.

I remember us talking about whether the United States, as we had known it, would still exist by the time those licenses expired.

Right now, I would not bet against it not existing, between its military and financial woes.

And right now, another military misadventure may well do this country in for good.

How The US Militarizes The World’s Police, Not Just Ferguson’s

Since then, the world has watched the streets of Ferguson turn into a battleground, as heavily armed police officers fired tear gas, shot rubber bullets and pointed guns at protesters denouncing Brown’s killing.

“Solidarity with Ferguson,” tweeted Mariam Barghouti from Palestine. “Remember to not touch your face when tear gassed or put water on it. Instead use milk or coke.”

Numerous people — domestic and abroad — have expressed outrage at the militaristic response of local police against protesters, journalists, and people of color.

“Urban Shield plays a leading role in the globalization of repression.”

Since the protests erupted earlier this month, many have called into question the US Defense Department’s 1033 program, which allows surplus military equipment to be transferred to local police departments for counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ultimately, the only way "security" is created is through meaningful work, at decent wages, coupled with lifetime education, and money which is created as a public utility, not a loan at interest upon its issuance.

Any other way, which consistently favors suppression as a way of snuffing out dissent, is ultimately doomed to failure.

Obama Blames Russia For His Mistakes In Ukraine

Barack Obama has pushed Ukraine to the brink of political, economic and social collapse. Now he wants to blame Russia for the damage he’s done. It’s absurd. Moscow is in no way responsible for Ukraine’s descent into anarchy. That’s all Washington’s doing, just as Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria were Washington’s doing. If you want to blame someone, blame Obama.

#OperationForeverThreat ~~ THE IMMINENT ATTACK ON IRAN THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN

Still, the persistent false narrative that military strikes by either the United States or Israel may follow any potential failure to reach a deal continues to be repeated in the press. Of course, the fact that any such attack would be unequivocally illegal under international law is rarely noted in these assessments.
