How would arrests of US/UK/Israel ‘leaders’ to end lie-began Wars of Aggression actually go down?

*hyperlinks live at source*
Three essential questions:

How are we certain US/UK/Israel current armed attacks are unlawful and lie-began Wars of Aggression?

How would arrests of “leaders” happen?

What can the average person do to help cause arrests of obvious criminals for obvious War Crimes?

How are we certain US/UK/Israel current armed attacks are unlawful and lie-began Wars of Aggression?

The short answer is because the two treaties that make a government’s armed attack upon another nation are so crystal-clear in letter and intent, and the US/UK/Israel wars are not even close to the definition of “self-defense” that makes war lawful.

Gaza Is without Electricity!

Israeli forces pounded Hamas symbols of control and Gaza's only power plant in one of the heaviest bombardments in the three-week conflict, trying to raise pressure on the Islamist group to accept Israel's terms for a cease-fire.

This Is What Is Going To Happen If Ebola Comes To America

If the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history reaches the United States, federal law permits "the apprehension and examination of any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease". These individuals can be "detained for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary". In other words, the federal government already has the authority to round people up against their will, take them to detention facilities and hold them there for as long as they feel it is "reasonably necessary". In addition, as you will read about below, the federal government has the authority "to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill". If you want to look at these laws in the broadest sense, they pretty much give the federal government the power to do almost anything that they want with us in the event of a major pandemic.

Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt in daily contact over Gaza

A “joint high command” of Arab states is advising the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu how to press home his ground operation in Gaza, the Debka Net Weeky, a publication of a website close to Israel’s foreign intelligence service Mossad has confirmed.

The website said that Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah and Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi are in “constant communication” running daily conferences and sometimes more, according to the website’s sources. That communication is done over secure telephone lines, but such is the political sensitivity of their close co-operation that for really important messages human couriers are used.

A special Israeli plane is parked permanently at Cairo’s military airport, ready to lift off whenever top-secret messages between the Egyptian president and the Israeli Prime Minister need to be delivered by hand. The flight takes less than 90 minutes.

Democrats want to ban government contracts for companies that leave the U.S. to avoid taxes

Lawmakers are growing tired of corporate America's persistent efforts to dodge U.S. taxes.
In the past month, Congress and the White House have denounced a loophole that lets companies lower their tax rate by moving their headquarters overseas. These so-called "inversions" have been the subject on Congressional hearings and legislation to eliminate the tax benefit.

Obama: 'Embrace Economic Patriotism' So We Can 'Rise or Fall Together as a Nation'

On June 26th, Obama gave his weekly telepromptering the White House later titled, "Closing Corporate Tax Loopholes" in which the grand spokesperson for the United States of America, Inc. halfheartedly did his job reading a script on a screen to reassure us all that everything is economically rosy and coming up roses more and more everyday, before he urged the nation to "rally around economic patriotism" and rise and fall together as one nation and one people.

The next day, the White House's official Twitter sent out the message above with the video.

Bolivia declares Israel ‘terrorist state’, scraps visa exemption agreement

Bolivia has declared Israel to be a “terrorist state” and renounced a visa exemption agreement with the country in protest over the ongoing Israeli military offense in Gaza which already killed more than 1,300 dead and left over 7,000 wounded.

Canceling the 1972 agreement which allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” the country’s President Evo Morales announced.

Morales explained that Operation Protective edge clearly shows that “Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

Record Label Lawsuit Against Vimeo Threatens Free Speech Online

Activist Post

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and a coalition of advocacy groups have asked a federal appeals court to block record labels' attempt to thwart federal law in Capitol v. Vimeo—a case that could jeopardize free speech and innovation and the sites that host both.

In this lawsuit, the record labels sued online video site Vimeo, alleging that dozens of sound recordings were infringed in videos posted on the site. A ruling from a district court judge earlier this year found Vimeo could be responsible for copyright infringement, and in doing so imposed new, impossibly high standards for websites hosting user-generated content. In an amicus brief filed Wednesday, EFF argues that the decision undermines the safe harbors created by the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA), and the innovation and expression those safe harbors make possible...

Illegals Aliens Commit More Homicides in Texas Than on September 11th!

On one last point, the current debate on impeaching Obama is a valid one. On one side, the majority of Americans want Obama impeached. Many of the sitting Republicans don’t want to move for impeachment in fear that the Democrats will come out in droves in opposition and overturn the expected conservative flood during the November elections.

In my opinion, we need to make a clear statement that violation of the Constitution, the Oath of Office, and the infringement on our God-given, unalienable rights will not be tolerated.

We must use this opportunity not only to impeach Obama, but the moment he is taken out of office, we should clap him in handcuffs and try him for the many treasonous acts he has committed. This should be publicized widely and then, when the likely verdict comes down, we need to publicize that as well. We all know the penalty for treason, don’t we?

NSA sued over fears that former director is selling secrets

The National Security Agency has received its fair share of lawsuits since former contractor Edward Snowden began to disclose secret documents last year, and now the NSA is being taken to court for failing to produce files about its former director.

Motherboard reported on Wednesday this week that journalist Jason Leopold has filed a complaint against the NSA because the agency has refused to honor his request for public financial disclosure statements pertaining to Gen. Keith Alexander, the former head of the NSA who now offers cyber-consulting to corporations for the cost of $1 million a month.

Kyrie Eleison - Gaza 2014

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THE TOP

This is a new video to Claire K. Rivero's "Kyrie Eleison" ("Lord have mercy on us all"). In the original version, I made a point of using images of child victims of all wars across the last few decades, but in this version I decided to not "go gently", and the images in this video are all from Israel's attack on Gaza, ending with a message to all American voters.

There is an interesting story regarding the creation of this video. Yesterday morning, when I started collecting the images, I was able to go to Google's Image Search feature and type in "Gaza Dead Babies", which yielded the images you see here. Later in the day, following Israel's bombing of the Gaza media center, cutting the Twitter feeds, and bombing the power station to silence Gaza's computers and internet connections, I returned to Google to find a few more images and found that "Gaza Dead Babies" not only did not bring these images up any longer, but tended to produce numerous photos of the three killed Israeli teens from the West Bank! Is this what they mean by Googliness?"

No doubt Facebook will block attempts to post this video as well, but take a look and help me make it go viral. When you see the message at the end, you will understand why.

UPDATE: This video is also available at VIMEO!

Democratic senator boasts NSA “reform” bill vetted by US intelligence agencies

A revised version of the USA Freedom Act, previously passed by the US House of Representatives, was introduced before the Senate Tuesday by Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy.

The bill would supposedly place limits on acquisition of US communications metadata by the National Security Agency (NSA) and establish new transparency procedures. The latter include declassification of “significant” opinions published by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and publication of statistics covering the number of individuals who have been targeted for metadata surveillance.

Official report on Kiev military losses

Info provided by John Durham, from the official report from the Ukraine Interior Minister, Avakov (who by the way will eventually be tried for war crimes, but chances are he may not live this long). I’ve seen this leaked report and I can confirm its existence.

Official Ukrainian Military Report of Losses for July 9-15, 2014(Arsen Avakov, Minister of Interior and V. Gritsak, Head of the ATO)

1. Desertions: 3473
2. Killed in Action: 1600
3. Wounded in Action: 4723
4. Tanks: 35
5. Armoured Battle Vehicles: 96
6. Artillery : 38
7. Aircraft: 7
8. Helicopters: 2
9. Automobiles: 104

In the event the negative trend continues…I estimate that 2/3 of the active combat military units currently participating in the ATO will simply cease to exist in as little as 4 to 5 days.

Argentina placed into ‘default’ rating as debt deal deadline expires

Argentina’s credit rating was downgraded to “selective default” by Standard & Poor’s as the South American country missed Wednesday’s deadline for a grace period during ongoing negotiations with holdout debt holders.

Wednesday is the cutoff for Argentina to make good on a $539 million payment to bondholders, which was placed on hold by a US judge’s order tying that payment to ongoing litigation by vulture funds which refused the country’s original cents-on-the-dollar debt restructuring offer.

Analysts generally do not believe that a default by Argentina will have the same consequences as in 2001.

That afternoon, CNN reported that the United States military will be honoring a request from Israel for assistance in the midst of their weeks-long campaign against militants from Hamas residing in Gaza City.

The piece of legislation, which has already been seen in congressional committee, intends to effectively declare war on Russia by imposing even more draconian sanctions on Russian businesses, and individuals, maintaining American troops in European countries, increasing the presence of American troops and military equipment in countries that support NATO’s actions against Russia, including former Soviet republics, forcing Ukraine to become a member of NATO so the United States can station troops and armament on the Russian-Ukrainian border and cancel any nuclear disarmament treaties signed between the United States and Russia, among other things.

The United States on Monday urged Israel to expedite the case of a 15-year-old American citizen held for three weeks on charges of rock-throwing, amid concerns he has been mistreated in custody.

Mohammed Abu Nie — who has dual American and Palestinian citizenship — was arrested in east Jerusalem on July 3, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki confirmed.

“We are certainly gravely concerned about the detention of an American citizen child,” she told reporters.

“Considering his age, we are calling for a speedy resolution to this case… this 15-year-old has now been held for three weeks in Israeli custody and has seen his parents only once briefly during that night.”

Australia rules out new sanctions against Russia

Australia's Prime Minister Tony Abbott said on Wednesday he is not considering ratcheting up sanctions against Russia while his government is focused on retrieving Australian victims from the wreckage of the Malaysian airliner disaster in Ukraine.

Abbott has had several telephone conversations with Vladimir Putin in the past two weeks and has credited the Russian president with cooperating with international efforts to retrieve the remains of 298 people killed when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down by a surface-to-air missile likely fired by pro-Russian rebels who then controlled the crash site.

Abbott said he was not considering following the United States and European Union by increasing sanctions aimed at pressuring Putin into ending his country's support for separatists in east Ukraine.

Mass casualties as Gaza market area bombed

Al Jazeera understands that at least three air strikes or artillery rounds hit the area, which is a collection of warehouses, a market area and shops.

...

"The first shell hit, and people immediately started evacuating the wounded," a man called Abu Maysarah told the AFP news agency. "They [the Israelis] saw them evacuating the wounded, and they struck them again."

Another witness, who spoke to Al Jazeera from Shifa hospital, said many at the scene of the attack tried to put out fires that had started.

"The fire hit one of the shops, and started to spread to all the market," he said. "We ran to help fight it ... suddenly the cannon shells started to hit all of us while we were rescuing people."

Hamas condemned the deaths as "another blatant massacre".

House report advises eliminating IRS commissioner job, ACA management

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday proposed a total revamping of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), accusing the agency of being a political group rather than a nonpartisan government collection agency, according to the House pf Representatives Oversight Committee's latest report titled, "Making Sure Targeting Never Happens: Getting Politics Out of the IRS and Other Solutions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suggest that before making any changes to the IRS that you check those bills of ratification of the 16th Amendment that supposedly authorized a personal income tax (which was prohibited in the original Constitution), because Judge James C. Fox states quite clearly in Sullivan vs United States that the Amendment actually failed ratification, and the United States Supreme Court ruled in Stanton vs Baltic Mining that the 16th Amendment (even if ratified) did not actually confer any new tax powers on Congress, making the IRS and the income tax a 100 year criminal fraud perpetrated by the US Government and the FED against the American people.

The obliteration of Gaza from relentless Israeli air strikes and tank shelling was laid bare today in a series of satellite images charting the escalating violence across the region.

Analysis from UN satellite experts reveal how hundreds of buildings have been razed to the ground in a series of attacks that have killed more than 1,300 Palestinians over the last three weeks.

Using images from July 6 - before the conflict began - and comparing them with ones from July 25, they have identified 700 destroyed structures, many of them homes and mosques.

Twin Strikes Claim 37 Lives in Gaza as Israel War Widens

Twin strikes on a United Nations school and the main public market in Gaza City claimed the lives of 37 people, Palestinians said, as Israel expanded its three-week-old offensive in the territory.

The UN Relief and Works Agency accused Israel of violating international law with the attack on the school, which it said was sheltering 3,300 people who had sought refuge there from the fighting. The Israeli army said troops were responding to fire launched at them from the vicinity. It also said it was looking into the report of an air strike on the market.

The attacks came as the Israeli military pushed deeper into the Hamas-controlled territory, according to military spokesman Brigadier-General Moti Almoz, in an interview with Army Radio. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said today his army is ready to broaden its incursion further as it hunts for tunnels militants built to slip into Israel.

‘Telegenically Dead Palestinians’: Why Israel Is Losing the American Media War

In many ways, the story of this month's eruption of violence in Israel and Palestine has been depressingly familiar. But in one interesting way it has been a little bit different from the beginning: American audiences are seeing the story of the conflict, perhaps more than ever before, through Palestinian eyes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic case of being hoisted with your own petard. As the independent media has gained audience over the last decade, corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms have, to continue their profits, maintained that they are still in control of the minds of America and can make the dumb sheep think whatever they want them to.

Israel took them at their word and sent our the order, "Make them think we are the good guys as we slaughter the Palestinians."

And the corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms have, to put it mildly, cratered this assignment.

Which is a good thing. Israel is not only wrecking their own credibility but that of the governments that support them, and the aforesaid corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms.

'Bout time.

National Security Study 200

SUBJECT: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests

The President has directed a study of the impact of world population growth on U.S. security and overseas interests. The study should look forward at least until the year 2000, and use several alternative reasonable projections of population growth.

In terms of each projection, the study should assess:

- the corresponding pace of development, especially in poorer-countries;
- the demand for US exports, especially of food, and the trade-problems the US may face arising from competition for resources; and
- the likelihood that population growth or imbalances will produce disruptive foreign policies and international instability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Ebola races across Africa, it appears that the United States Government's attitude towards the crisis is rather lackadaisical at this point. Certainly it is being treated as a lower priority than sheltering the illegal immigrants flooding across the Mexican border (who given enough time, will bring Ebola with them), providing weapons and money to Israel, and trying to provoke a potentially nuclear war with Russia.

The US Government's inaction could be attributed to the fact that the politicians can;t really do anything about it, cannot get votes out of it, and so, like with Fukushima and the Gulf Oil Disaster, their plan is to ignore Ebola and pretend it just is not important.

But there may be another agenda at work; one that dates back to the Nixon Administration. In 1974, Henry Kissenger prepared a study for the President which suggested US Government policy should work for depopulation of the third world, in particular the resource-rich regions, to make those resources available to the US and to prevent the rise of a sufficiently large population able to resist US incursions.

Nixon adopted this policy, but his successor, Gerald Ford, alarmed by scandals involving covert sterilization under the guise of global vaccination programs, ended the policy. Whether it has been revived in secret is not known.

But there is no question that an Ebola epidemic, raging through the very nations the US AFRICOM is seeking ton control, plays right into that agenda of depopulation to reduce nations' ability to resist US control, and that may be the reason the US Government has done little more about the emerging Ebola crisis than flap their gums for the corporate media cameras!

Portugal’s Top Oligarch Goes Down in Flames

Ricardo Espírito Santo Silva Salgado is known in Portugal as “Dono disto tudo,” or “Owner of everything.’ The oligarch’s family has been calling the shots in Portugal for over a century. It’s the largest shareholder of the country’s biggest stock market listed bank, and controls a string of other financial companies, agricultural, energy, health care and property companies in Portugal and across the globe. But now it looks like the final chapters in the long history of the most renowned members of the country’s elite are about to be written. And perhaps with it a new chapter in Portugal’s and Europe’s financial and economic crisis.

Jul 30 09:57

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

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

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

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

The US is a country controlled through the privately owned Federal Reserve, which in turn is controlled by the handful of banking families that established it by deception in the first place.

Ukraine’s GDP in the second quarter of 2014 has declined 4.7 percent compared to the same period in 2013, the Ukrainian State Statistics Service said on Wednesday. The contraction was more than four times the 1.1 percent fall in the first quarter.

The gross domestic product of Ukraine has been falling every quarter since the beginning of 2012. Ukraine expects GDP to tumble by 6-6.5 percent this year according to Finance Minister Alexander Shlapak, who added the inflation rate will reach 19 percent in 2014.

Looks like we have another liberal in need of a history lesson, as it is pretty evident that Norton doesn’t understand the meaning of “Separation of Powers.” The framers of our Constitution designed the Separation of Powers in order to prevent one branch from becoming dictatorial. These specific checks and balances were included so each branch could ensure that one branch did not usurp their powers. This does not mean that our government-elected officials can do whatever they want behind closed doors.

"US Will Feel Tangible Losses," Russia Prepares To Unleash Retaliatory Trade Wars

"It's a troubling continuation/expansion of trade as a geopolitical tool," warns one Washington-based consulting firm as Russia prepares to unleash retaliatory actions to US and European sanctions. As Bloomberg reports, Russia said yesterday it may ban imports of chicken from the U.S. and fruit from Europe and is investigating McDonald's cheese for safety. In addition, a Russian lawmaker has drafted legislation that might result in U.S. accounting firms being barred from doing business in his country. All of this is odd given Jack "trust me" Lew's reassurance that Russian sanctions would have no impact on the US economy. Russia's response, US will feel 'tangible losses' from 'destructive, myopic' sanctions.

As Bloomberg reports, while Russia and the U.S. have long sparred over agricultural trade, the actions fueled speculation they could be retaliatory.

Situation atrocious’: Russian Red Cross says E. Ukraine faces humanitarian catastrophe

The Russian Red Cross is not alone in its efforts. Russian Human Rights Commissioner Ella Pamfilova has been trying to achieve the same goal.

"We have made requests to the Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives who are present there, and to the Red Cross,” Pamfilova told RT. “We ask all warring parties to grant us a humanitarian corridor to rescue children with severe illnesses. In order to leave the shelling zone, they need special transport and specialist medical help.”

Residential areas have come under fire in the east of Ukraine as Kiev’s forces continue their military operation there. Ukrainian troops and anti-government forces have been blaming each other for the civilian casualties.

The town of Gorlovka in the Donetsk Region has for the last several days witnessed massive shelling. Twenty-seven civilians, including 4 children, were killed in the region July 27-29, the city council said.

MH17 Wreckage Seems to Show It Was Struck with Bullets and a R-60 Air to Air Missile

Russian air control radars apparently registered an unidentified blip suddenly appearing on screen close to flight MH17 at the moment it was apparently hit; this blip later disappeared. Kartopolov insisted the radar signature was a Ukrainian military jet, apparently an Su-25 that could have attacked Flight MH17, using its two R-60 short-range heat seeker “shoot-and-forget air-to-air,” which these military planes are designed to carry for self defense.

According to the chief of staff of the Russian Air Force, Lieutenant-General Igor Markushev, who together with Kartopolov presented the official Russian outline of the MH17 crash, Ukrainian officials deny any of their military aircraft were in air at the time over Donbas, “but you see that is not so,” which is an indication of guilt, he alleged.

Further evidence to support this claim is shown below.

CDC: Stopping deadly Ebola outbreak will Be a 'marathon'

The deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa is not showing any signs of slowing down, prompting U.S. health officials to issue more warnings for their staff in the region, encourage U.S. doctors to collect information about sick patients' travel histories and take more actions in the affected countries to bring the virus under control before it spreads to other regions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Outside of talk, I don't see where the US Government is giving this crisis the attention it deserves. The attitude seems to be that if they cannot use it to get more votes this November, it just isn't a priority compared with illegal immigration, sending weapons to Israel, and starting a war with Russia!

The problem is that it is only a matter of time before one of those illegals coming into the US bring Ebola with them. Obama is risking a major pandemic in this nation for the sake of his immigration policy success in the history books.

Video: If you voted for Hamas, Israel has a right to kill you, says president of NY Board of Rabbis

There was a pro-Israel rally of 10,000 people in New York yesterday, a half block from the United Nations, and Rabbi David-Seth Kirchner, the president of the NY Board of Rabbis, suggested that Palestinians who voted for Hamas are combatants who deserve to be targeted by Israel. He said:

When you are part of an election process that asks for a terrorist organization which proclaims in word and in deed that their primary objective is to destroy their neighboring country and not to build schools or commerce or jobs, you are complicit and you are not a civilian casualty.

The crowd cheered. Kirshner went on to say that the Israeli army is “the most moral army in the history of civilization.” He ended his remarks with the word, Amen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what about the slaughter of innocent Palestinian children, too young to vote, Rabbi?!?

I am certain that you have some kind of tortured logic with which to justify these actions, and I really wish, in your statements, that you would have just said it, in this speech, just to make your position perfectly clear.

In the last election, vetted by international observers, and characterized as being free and fair, Hamas won the election. THAT really annoyed Netanyahu no end.

And this year, when Fatah and Hamas were to announce a unity government, THAT darn near had Prime Minister Netanyahu exploding, because he could no longer say he didn't know who to talk to about peace. So what did he do?!? He suspended peace talks in April of this year.

And now, another massive IDF attack against Gaza, which will most probably kill hundreds of thousands. Apparently, when he makes that observation that the IDF is " ...the most moral army in the history of civilization.", it is painfully clear, the from Rabbi Kirchners's perspective, that morality equates to genocide.

Oh, and by the way, that statement about Palestinians not building schools or commerce or jobs?!?

I would like to thoughtfully point out that concrete, and other building materials are forbidden in Gaza.

So I would like him to elucidate, please on just HOW the Palestinians in Gaza are supposed to be able to build ANYTHING, with these restrictions in place, and here they are:

List no. 1: Items Subject to Specific Permission / List No. 2: Construction Items and Materials null UNRWA worker inspects a load of metal stock at the Kerem Shalom Crossing terminal before transfer to the Gaza Strip, June 2010 (Photo: Reuters) According to the decision taken on June 20, 2010, by the Israeli Security Cabinet, the Government of Israel - having reviewed the propositions put forward by the USG, the OQR and others - formed two categories of listed items whose entry into Gaza would be subject to Israeli control. Items not included in either would be allowed into Gaza without specific permission. The lists are: List no. 1: Items Subject to Specific Permission 1. Arms and Munitions: forbidden transfer under all circumstances across Israel's frontiers without specific permits - as defined in the Control of Exports Security Order (Arms and Munitions) 5768-2008, and in the Control of Exports Security Order (Missile Equipment) 5768-2008. 2. Dual Use goods and items: liable to be used, side by side with their civilian purposes, for the development, production, installation or enhancement of military capabilities and terrorist capacities. This list comprises: Items listed under the Wassenaar Arrangement: As specified in the updated (2008) "Wassenaar Arrangement on Export Controls for Arms and Dual Use Goods and Technologies - List of Dual Use Goods and Technologies and Munitions List." Items whose entry into the PA Areas is controlled based on Israeli legislation: i.e. materials and equipment liable to be used for terror attacks and technology that could be used by terrorists - as defined in the Control of Exports Security Order (Controlled Dual Use Equipment Transferred to the PA Areas) 5768-2008 and in Orders of the OC Central Command. These lists include, in detail, a range of chemicals used in the production of explosives (including certain fertilizers); specific types of metal profiles; ball bearings; lathes and their parts; composite materials; hunting knives and machetes; optical equipment, such as lasers and night vision goggles; certain navigation aides; diving equipment; parachutes, gliders and other nonmotorized airborne vehicles; flares and fireworks; avionics and flight control equipment; missile related computer technologies; rock drills and equipment drawing water from excavated sites. Items not necessarily included in the lists above but whose entry into Gaza is controlled, as detailed below: i. Items and chemicals which could be used in the production of high trajectory weapons (rockets and mortars) by Hamas and other terror groups in Gaza - Fertilizers or other mixtures - specifically containing KCl at more than 5%; Epoxy and Vinyl Ester resins; Hardeners for Epoxy Resins containing Amides or Amines; Accelerators for Vinyl Esters; HTPB; Water purification solutions at concentrations higher than 11%. ii. Items used as raw materials for improving protection for terror activists - Fibers or woven fabrics containing Carbon or Glass variants. iii. Vessels. List No. 2: Construction Items and Materials to be Allowed Entry into Gaza only for PA-authorized Projects Implemented by the International Community While such items are liable to be used for Hamas military purposes (building bunkers, fortifying positions and digging tunnels) Israel will permit their entry into Gaza so as to facilitate construction projects in Gaza - authorized by the PA and implemented and monitored by the international community. This list includes: Portland cement and lime (in bulk, bags or barrels) Natural and Quarry aggregates and all varieties of gravel Ready concrete Precast concrete elements and products Steel elements and/or construction products Iron for foundations and columns, at any diameter (including wielded steel nets) Steel cables of any width Forms for construction elements (plastics or galvanized iron) Industrialized forms for casting concrete Plastic or composite beams more than 4 mm thick Thermal isolation materials and products Blocs (at any width) - Concrete; Silicate; Ytong or its equivalent; or gypsum Materials and products for sealing structures Asphalt and its components (Bitumen, emulsion) in aggregate or packaged Steel elements or framing products for construction Cast concrete elements and products for drainage over 1 m in diameter Precast units and sea-borne containers Vehicles, excluding private cars and including 4X4 vehicles and other categories of motor vehicles liable to be used in terror activities Lumber beams and boards more than 2 cm thick, (liable to be used in "offensive" tunneling aimed at penetrating Israeli territory), unless incorporated in finished products Specific procedures, on a case by case basis, will be established so as to permit the transfer of such lumber for other purposes in Gaza.

If steel and concrete are denied items in Gaza, what, please can these people build from?!?

    Congress Warns Obama Not to Push Israel for CeasefireSen. Kirk: Worth Thousands of Lives to Wipe Out Hamas

    Efforts to negotiate a ceasefire in Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip aren’t sitting well with Israeli hawks, and by extension that means they aren’t sitting well with the US Congress.

    That’s got Congressional officials up in arms, pushing President Obama to stop trying to negotiate a ceasefire in the conflict, and instead to endorse Israel’s war unconditionally, and irrespective of how bad it gets.

    Underscoring just how far they’ll go, Sen. Mark Kirk (R – IL) insisted he was totally comfortable with Israel killing thousands of civilians in the current war if it meant wiping out Hamas, saying it was “worth it.”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Now, Senator Kirk, let me get this straight: you are for slaughtering thousands of non-combatants (women, infants, and the medically fragile elderly) in order to remove the duly elected government of Palestine, which was, in a free and fair election, won by Hamas?!?

    It is pretty damned obvious, sir, that you have been truly been bought and paid for by the Israeli government. As reported at www.rightweb.irc-online.com in November of 2013:

    An officer in the U.S. Naval Reserves and a former five-term House member, Kirk is one of Congress' top recipients of donations from "pro-Israel" advocacy groups, leading one critic to call him "AIPAC's Million Dollar Baby."[2] - See more at: http://www.rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/Kirk_Mark#sthash.pnXrgD6C.dpuf

    And, as reported at huffingtonpost.com, in February, 2010:

    Mark Kirk, the House member from Chicago who is now the GOP Senate nominee, is the #1 recipient of pro-Israel PAC money in the entire House. In fact, of the top 10 recipients from both Houses, he is the only House member. Why do the PACs love him? It is because Kirk is a pure Israel-firster. For Kirk, Israel can do no wrong. Add to that that he sits on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Foreign Operations where he brings home the bacon for Israel big time. Its wish is his command.

    And that money is sizeable, not only for Kirk, but also the top 20 recipients of pro-Israel money As reported in www.opensecrets.org:

    Obama, Barack (D) $2,224,126 Lieberman, Joe (I-CT) $2,119,414 Kirk, Mark (R-IL) $1,712,133 Levin, Carl (D-MI) $1,404,375 McConnell, Mitch (R-KY) $1,358,155 Berkley, Shelley (D-NV) $1,282,305 Specter, Arlen (D-PA) $1,224,837 McCain, John (R-AZ) $1,172,307 Cantor, Eric (R-VA) $1,136,465 Clinton, Hillary (D-NY) $1,084,891 Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana (R-FL) $886,144 Durbin, Dick (D-IL) $829,484 Hoyer, Steny H (D-MD) $826,665 Cardin, Ben (D-MD) $799,665 Wyden, Ron (D-OR) $767,357 Lowey, Nita M (D-NY) $760,613 Harkin, Tom (D-IA) $740,445 Feinstein, Dianne (D-CA) $712,066 Boxer, Barbara (D-CA) $690,253 Engel, Eliot L (D-NY) $685,537 Industries in this Sector: Pick another Sector: Search for an industry: Find Your Representatives The numbers on this page are based on contributions from PACs and individuals giving $200 or more

    So folks, please wake up and smell the falafel. US foreign policy, when it comes to the Middle East, is bought and paid for by the Israeli government, period, end of discussion.

    It is time to send every Congressional represenative home, permanently, who has taken, and is taking, one cent from the Israeli lobby.

    Permission Dutch Safety Board to move wreckage MH-17

    The Dutch Safety Board gave permission to move wreckage on the crash site, after a request about this received by the Safety Board through the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). This in order to be able to salvage the remaining victims. The moving of the wreckage will be carried out by LOCAL PARTIES.
    The Dutch Safety Board considers it of the utmost importance that as many victims as possible can be returned to the Netherlands so that they can be identified and returned to their next of kin.

    [Or: there never was any looting; the separatists were given permission to operate in that area)

    Why Has Obama Rejected a More Humane Response to the Hunger Strike at Gitmo?

    On July 15, the Miami Herald reported that a Navy medical officer recently refused to continue to participate in the force-feeding of Guantanamo Bay prisoners who are on hunger strike. According to Cori Crider of Reprieve, who was informed of the Navy officer’s decision by her client, Abu Wa’el Dhiab, “Once [the officer] saw with his own eyes that what he was told was contrary to what was actually taking place here, he decided he could not do it anymore.” Dhiab also told Crider that the officer announced, “I have come to the decision that I refuse to participate in this criminal act.”

    Man Asks Cop For Help To Find Missing Girlfriend, Cop Beats Him With A Baton

    A 13-year veteran St. Louis County, Missouri police officer allegedly beat a man in an "unprovoked show of force" after he asked him for help to find his missing girlfriend. Rather than offer help, Dawon Gore, 44, allegedly told the victim, Pierre Wilson, 24, that he should contact a department closer to his home, an answer which Wilson did not find satisfactory. An argument evidently ensued, after which Gore allegedly charged Wilson and proceeded to beat him with his baton, breaking three of his fingers in the process. Gore then reportedly denied him medical attention for an hour and a half while the victim was "booked."

    Please Do Not Look Away From Israel’s Wholesale Slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza – Funded By U.S. Taxpayers!

    Israel commits genocide and crimes against humanity. The UN and US turn blind eyes. And why not when the United States slaughters black males, children and the mentally ill for profit, sex and experimentation. The enforcers of these atrocities the United States government.

    In the United States, genocide and crimes against humanity are condoned, encouraged and rewarded.

    Bollworms develop resistance to Bt cotton, destroy GM crop fields in Pakistan

    Biotech giant Monsanto promises farmers that, if they buy genetically modified (GM) seeds, their crops will exhibit herbicide-, insect- and drought-tolerant characteristics.

    Through time, research and field trials, this has proven to be a false promise. All over the world, plants and insects are becoming immune to potent herbicides and pesticides, resulting in the development of "superweeds" and "superpests."

    One of the most recent examples is occurring in the major cotton growing belt of Southern Punjab, where farmers fear that bollworms have developed resistance to Monsanto's Bt cotton.

    Michigan government forces farmers to destroy vast amounts of healthy food while homeless U.S. children and veterans starve

    As reported by Daisy Luther, the "Organic Prepper," at LewRockwell.com, "While Americans in the nearby city of Detroit face life in third world conditions, unable to even afford running water, the state of Michigan decided to direct its resources towards cracking down on a small food co-op in Standish for having the utter audacity to provide milk, butter, cream and eggs to people who bought shares in the organic dairy."

    Luther said the Michigan Department of Agriculture (MDA) is the culprit here; they "must be so proud of their deeds" after forcing Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, owners of High Hill Dairy, as well as Jenny Samuelson, owner of the My Family Co-Op, to "dump out 248 gallons of milk, to break 100 dozen eggs, and to destroy an undisclosed amount of fresh cream, butter and cheese" because, ostensibly, the state didn't get its pound of silver.

    'You can't call it self-defence while you're murdering children': Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz lead the celebrity revolt over Gaza 'genocide'

    Spain's leading film stars Penélope Cruz, Pedro Almodóvar and Javier Bardem are the latest major celebrities to go public with their views on the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

    The trio are among a group of actors who have penned an open letter in a Spanish newspaper calling for Europe to condemn Israel's bombing of the Palestinian territory, which has now claimed at least 1,200 lives - many of them civilians.

    The Spanish stars follow in the wake of celebrities, including singers Zayn Malik, Rihanna and Selena Gomez, and comedian Joan Rivers, who have spoken out either for or against the bombardment.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    The only one who spoke out for it was Joan Rivers, who the Daily Mail apparently felt they needed to throw in there to make it look like opinions are evenly divided.

    Did UN warn Israel SEVENTEEN times that bombed school was housing refugees? Horror as tank strike leaves 19 Palestinians dead and 125 injured

    Israel was warned no fewer than 17 times that a school it destroyed with tank strikes killing 16 Palestinians and injuring 125 others had been housing refugees, the UN claimed today.

    The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in the Jabaliya refugee camp when shells smashed into the complex overnight.

    UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said it was the sixth time one of the organisation's schools had been struck by Israeli bombardments during the 23-day conflict.

    In a furious response to the attack, he said: 'This is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today, the world stands disgraced.

    'We know that there were multiple civilian deaths and injuries including of women and children and the UNRWA guard who was trying to protect the site.

    'These are people who were instructed to leave their homes by the Israeli army.

    ‘World stands disgraced’: 20 killed in Israeli UN school shelling

    The UN relief and works agency for Palestine refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has strongly condemned the Israeli shelling of a UN school last night.

    “Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced,” UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said in a statement on Wednesday.

    “I condemn in the strongest possible terms this serious violation of international law by Israeli forces,” he said, calling on the international community to take deliberate international political action to put an immediate end to the continuing carnage.

    What's not a target for Israel?

    Israeli forces have killed more than 200 Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip over the past 23 days. In order to obfuscate this harsh reality, Israeli officials claim "self-defence" and contend that civilian deaths are justified because Hamas allegedly uses Palestinians in Gaza as human shields. Israel is an occupying power that is attacking and destroying an occupied Palestinian civilian population. These civilian deaths are not collateral damage. They are war crimes.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    And Obama in his anger and outrage, especially after the insults to Secretary of State John Kerry ... sends more money to Israel and hits Russia with sanctions!

    Protesters in France turn out for Palestine and defy ban - again

    Between five and ten thousand people defied the police in Paris last Saturday and protested in solidarity with Palestinians.

    This is the second consecutive week that protesters in France have resisted a ban on Palestine solidarity protests.

    In the face of resistance to the ban, the authorities allowed a static demo at Place de la Republique square, central Paris.

    But vans of riot police patrolled all entrances to the square, carrying out stop and search on anyone carrying flags and keffiyehs.

    Despite this the number of protesters swelled, taking over the square.

    Some climbed the Republique statue, the symbol of the French state, and released flares in the colours of the Palestinian flag.

    The New Anti-capitalist Party was present and had called for people to defy the ban.

    The vibrant and multicultural demonstration put the lie to prime minister Manuel Valls’ attempts to label all protesters as “anti-semitic”.

    Reality Check For The MSM: Obama’s Mythical Retreat from Military Force

    Here’s a thought: The Iraq War boosters who enthusiastically promoted the idea that a violent invasion would deliver a stable democracy should keep their opinions about the next U.S. war to themselves.

    For many pundits and (mostly) Republican politicians, the Obama years have been a time of serious decline of American power in the world. What they mean — and sometimes what they say outright, when they’re being honest — is that they want the United States to be more involved in more wars in foreign countries.

    Warning about GMO concerns

    Genetically Modified Organisms are food you eat, such as corn and soy, that were manipulated in a laboratory by forcing DNA from a completely foreign species into them. This foreign DNA may include a virus and antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

    Farmers have found GMOs cause the death of livestock. The Food and Drug Administration’s own scientists warned that genetically engineered food had serious health hazards, but no health testing is required. Europe has rejected GMOs due to health effects. Animal studies have shown GMO foods cause infertility, accelerated aging, dysfunctional insulin regulation, changes in major organs and the gastrointestinal system, and immune problems such as asthma, allergies, and inflammation

    The New York Times' Revenue Since Hiring Paul Krugman

    A fall in advertising sales and stepped-up investment in digital products sapped second-quarter profit at the New York Times as the publisher forecast flat circulation revenue and further declines in advertising in the coming months.

    Net income of $9.2m, or 6 cents a share, was down 54 per cent from $20.1m, or 13 cents a share, a year ago. Adjusted operating profit, which strips out some one-time items including retirement costs and depreciation, fell 21 per cent to $55.7m.

    Violating International Law in Gaza

    As Israel’s assault on the Gaza Strip rages on, ceasefires come and go. Most last just long enough for Palestinians to dig out the dead from beneath their collapsed houses, get the injured to overcrowded and under-resourced hospitals, and seek enough food and water to last through the next round of airstrikes.

    “There is nothing left but stones,” Palestinian journalist Mohammed Omer quoted an old woman saying as she searched desperately through the rubble of what had been her home.

    Corporatism Stifles Innovation

    For an economy to grow and create actual wealth, innovation is a bedrock component in the development of enhanced prosperity. Prosperity is an intriguing concept. Simply making and accumulating money falls short of establishing a successful economic model. This recent report illustrates a prime example. Facebook stock soars, as company briefly passes IBM in market value. "By most measures, Facebook is dwarfed by IBM: With about 7,000 employees, ten-year-old Facebook is on track to garner $12 billion in sales this year. The 103-year-old IBM has more than 400,000 workers and sold almost $100 billion of computer hardware and software in 2013."

    America's Militia Movement is Back From the Dead

    For the most part the movement had been silent for many years, with the setup of the Hutaree militia, and the Minutemen’s arrival on the border being the exceptions. But the situation that developed at the Bundy Ranch earlier this year officially ended the silence and decline of the militia movement. They turned a situation that most people (myself included) were certain was going turn into Waco, and instead, they forced the Federal authorities to stand down without bloodshed. It was a rather decisive moral victory.

    There was a time when America truly was synonymous with the tagline Land of the Free. However, that statement is becoming less and less truthful.

    Snowden revealed the lengths to which our country is going in order to monitor all our communications, and our government insists on continuing this Orwellian type of surveillance. Despite committee findings showing that not one single act of terrorism has been thwarted by these unconstitutional practices.

    Over the last several years we’ve also witnessed our police force becoming militarized to the point where they are using surplus military weapons and vehicles even in small towns where the worst recent crime was that time someone put sugar in their cornbread...
