Toward a Europe Whole and Free (To Loot)

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

When the special interests who created and direct the agenda of the European Union disagree with member states, the true nature of this supranational enterprise becomes painfully apparent – one of dictatorial special interests pursing regional policy that benefits none of its individual member states. No example of this can be clearer than the dispute that has emerged over the construction of Russia’s South Stream natural gas pipeline set to run through Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary, and Italy...

Lord Blencathra is ordered to apologise for signing lobbying contract with tax haven

Conservative peer Lord Blencathra – formerly known as David Maclean – has been ordered to apologise to the House of Lords for signing a contract with the Cayman Islands government under which he pledged to lobby both Houses of Parliament.

The move follows a two-year investigation by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism into the former Tory Chief Whip’s activities as director of the Cayman Islands Government Office in London.

An Open Letter to Wall Street Journal from a Palestinian Woman

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee’s Media Relations Specialist Amani Al-Khatahtbeh responds to Bret Stephens’ racist column “Where are the Palestinian Women?” in the Wall Street Journal last week. Stephens makes the assertion that all Palestinian mothers want to raise their sons to be martyrs. In a condescending comparison to Israeli society, he goes on to say that he has “yet to meet the Israeli mother who wants to raise her boys to become kidnappers and murderers.”

Al-Khatahtbeh responds, “Actually, every Israeli mother is legally obligated by the Israeli government to enter her sons and daughters into an institution that systematically kidnaps and murders. It’s [called] the Israeli Defense Force.”

The Unfolding of Yinon’s “Zionist Plan for the Middle East”: The Crisis in Iraq and the Centrality of the National Interest of Israel

“The Unfolding of Yinon’s ‘Zionist Plan for the Middle East’: The Crisis in Iraq and the Centrality of the National Interest of Israel,” illustrates how the ethno-sectarian fragmentation and internecine warfare between Shiites and Sunnis is in line with the Yinon plan to enhance Israel’s security and was ignited by the neocon-inspired US invasion of Iraq in 2003.

Netanyahu and the neocons currently view Iran as a greater threat in the Middle East than ISIS, and while they advocate US military intervention,they emphasize that such intervention should not empower Iran, notes Stephen Sniegoski.

Exclusive: Interview with Bashar al-Jaafari

Excerpts from the Exclusive PRESS TV interview with Bashar al-Jaafari, Syria's ambassador to the United Nations:

There is an awakening in the west he said, but a very shy awakening and people are aware that there is something wrong in the calculations of the American Administration...

You (President Obama) cannot on the one hand pledge Five hundred million dollars to help the so-called "moderate" Syrian opposition and on the other hand two days later state that the coalition is not a reliable political force. This contradiction speaks for itself he stressed.

There is no armed moderate opposition in Syria. Arming terrorists in Syria, is like arming terrorists in Libya, or arming terrorists in Iraq.

BEX Alert!!! - MSN: "Israel-NYC flight makes safe emergency landing"

Flight 469 — a Boeing 747 with 370 passengers and 17 crew members aboard — landed safely back at Ben Gurion Airport around 2:30 a.m. local time after flaps on the jumbo jet failed to retract properly on takeoff about two hours earlier, the airline said.

Delta spokeswoman Jennifer Martin said the crew made the emergency landing "out of an abundance of caution." She said there was no indication the plane's problem was related to the Israeli-Palestine conflict or terrorism. . .

. . . The emergency landing only exacerbated heightened sensitivity in Israel amid the conflict.

Simon said passengers started arriving at Ben Gurion for the flight around 9:30 p.m. local time, just as sirens sounded to warn that Palestinian militants were sending a new round of rocket attacks toward Tel Aviv.

Pope Francis: 'About 2%' of Catholic clergy paedophiles - BBC News

Pope Francis has been quoted as saying that reliable data indicates that "about 2%" of clergy in the Catholic Church are paedophiles.

The Pope said that abuse of children was like "leprosy" infecting the Church, according to the Italian La Repubblica newspaper.

He vowed to "confront it with the severity it demands".

But a Vatican spokesman said the quotes in the newspaper did not correspond to Pope Francis's exact words.

The BBC's David Willey in Rome says there is often a studied ambiguity in Pope Francis' off-the-cuff statements.

Israel Paying Students (30 pieces of silver?) to be Apologists for Israel

There are tons of rabid apologists lurking all about the social media platforms ready to do Israel’s bidding while the IDF commits one crime against humanity after another in Gaza. Go ahead and Tweet something honest about what is going on and you’ll see what I mean.

I wondered what motivated them, in the face of the undeniable, to continue their efforts to defend the indefensible. I should have known. I should have remembered. It’s money. It’s always been money.

College students are being paid to be online apologists for the barbaric inhuman policies of Israel and the IDF. The more lies they post about glorious Israel, the higher up the corporate-styled ladder they climb, looking to achieve the ultimate goal… a free ride in college… proving once again: it’s never too early to sell-out.

Veterans Affairs officials claim agency cannot revoke bonuses, contradicting earlier statements to congressional committee

Bonuses paid to top executives at the Department of Veterans Affairs who committed misconduct cannot be rescinded, an agency official testified Friday, in direct contradiction to what he told a different panel less than a month ago.

Samuel Retherford, principal deputy assistant secretary for human resources at the veterans' agency, was asked directly whether bonuses paid to senior executives who created phony medical appointment lists could be rescinded.

“Currently we do not have the authority to go back and rescind an award,” Retherford told a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee Friday.

Last month Retherford told the House Veterans' Affairs Committee staff that bonuses could be rescinded for one year after being paid.

John Pilger: In Ukraine, the US is dragging us towards war with Russia

Russian-speaking Ukrainians are fighting for survival. When Putin announced the withdrawal of Russian troops from the border, the Kiev junta's defence secretary, Andriy Parubiy – a founding member of the fascist Svoboda party – boasted that attacks on "insurgents" would continue. In Orwellian style, propaganda in the west has inverted this to Moscow "trying to orchestrate conflict and provocation", according to William Hague. His cynicism is matched by Obama's grotesque congratulations to the coup junta on its "remarkable restraint" after the Odessa massacre. The junta, says Obama, is "duly elected". As Henry Kissinger once said: "It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but what is perceived to be true."

VLADIMIR PUTIN: The 21st century world is globalized and interdependent. Therefore, no state or group of countries can unilaterally tackle major international problems and any attempts to build a separate “oasis of stability and security” are doomed to failure.

In order to meet numerous challenges and threats we have to stop trying to impose development models on other countries. This approach has repeatedly proven its ineffectiveness. It does not just fail to facilitate conflict resolution, but leads to instability and chaos in international affairs.

Today, it is especially important to consolidate the international community’s efforts to ensure equal and indivisible security, as well as to resolve disputes trough the application of international law and with the central coordinating role of the UN.

Margaret Thatcher 'personally covered up' child abuse allegations against senior ministers

Margaret Thatcher personally covered up child abuse ­allegations made against one of her senior ministers, according to explosive new claims.

The Sunday People reports Tory Prime Minister is said to have held a high-powered meeting with the rising star, who was being tipped for promotion, and told him: “You have to clean up your sexual act.”

It followed an allegation that the minister had sexually abused young boys at the home of one of his political allies in 1982.

However the minister apparently ignored the warnings.

It is claimed that four years later he was spotted by police seeking young boys for sex at Victoria railway station in London.

But no action was taken.

The Future Of Americas Shopping Malls In Pictures

And they made a wasteland of America!

(Rocket 24) Hundreds of shopping malls across the U.S. have been forced to shut down following years of debilitating declines in consumer traffic.

In many cases, the shuttered malls are left to decay for years before developers or local governments raise the funds to bulldoze or renovate the space.

Pseudonymous photographer Seph Lawless traveled the country for years to find these forgotten malls and document their decay from the inside.

The photos he captured are haunting and apocalyptic, featuring dead trees and abandoned shopping carts against landscapes of broken glass and crumbling walls.

He compiled the photographs in a new book, “Black Friday: The Collapse of the American Shopping Mall,” and shared some of them with Business Insider.

Meanwhile, there have been large public protests outside several BBC facilities and more are planned in coming days.

‘Diplomatic earthquake’ as Germany halts spy cooperation with US

The German government has instructed its intelligence agencies to limit their cooperation with their American counterparts “to the bare essentials” until further notice, according to media reports. The move follows news that Berlin requested on Thursday the immediate removal from Germany of the United States Central Intelligence Agency chief of station —essentially the top American official in the country. The request came after two German citizens, one working for the BND, Germany’s main external intelligence organization, and one working for the country’s Federal Ministry of Defense, were allegedly found to have been secretly spying for the US. German media reported on Thursday that the temporary halt in Berlin’s intelligence collaboration with Washington applies across the spectrum, with the exception of areas directly affecting tactical security concerns for Germany, such as the protection of its troops in Afghanistan, or defending against immediate terrorist threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Obama Administration: diplomatic stupidity...should be painful, and this administration has no other people upon which they can lay the blame for this.

Gilad Atzmon: It is important to note that Israel hasn’t won a single military battle since 1973. True, it has killed many Arabs, but it hasn’t managed to achieve any of its military objectives.

Israel’s military domination has been sustained by the power of deterrence. The strategy was to force Arabs to avoid conflict by threatening that they could lose everything. This week has shown that this trick won’t work anymore.

Palestinian resistance has sprung back to life. Israel can not solve its problems by military means. The situation is desperate for the Israelis. They have started to realize that they are stuck within a political, ideological and cultural stalemate. Israel is unable to conjure an image of a resolution. There is no prospect of future for the Jewish State.

Mayor de Blasio : Ballot Initiative (for NYC to investigate cause of WTC 7 collapse) “insensitive and inappropriate”

Bill de Blasio, another NYC Mayor who has an allergy to reality, decency, and an interest in actually investigating the crimes of 9/11/01 on Thursday said,

“From what I’ve heard it’s absolutely ridiculous,”… “And it’s inappropriate, after all the suffering that went on 9/11 and since. It seems to be this is a very insensitive and inappropriate action.”

That “insensitive and inappropriate action” is the ballot initiative spearheaded by the High Rise Safety Initiative, a group of grassroots activists and 9/11 family members like Bob McIlvaine, father of Bobby McIlvaine, have gathered 67, 192 signatures so far from verifiable New York legal residents, that if passed November 4th, it would require the City’s Department of Buildings to investigate the collapse of WTC 7 and any future high-rise collapses.

Given US/UK/Israel wars and lust for more, what do two ‘supreme Law’ treaties say about lawful and unlawful war?

*hyperlinks live at source*
The short answer is war is lawful only in self-defense from armed attack by another nation’s government, and lawful response is to arrest US/UK/Israel leaderships for unlawful Wars of Aggression.

Background history: It’s easy to document the US as a neocolonial empire; offspring of Europe’s lust for material wealth that spawned two world wars in the century within which all current adults were born.

All of our families sacrificed through those wars. Please take a moment to feel what they went through. Please take a moment to experience the cumulative costs inflicted by “developed” nations’ imperialism and wars, including Israel’s escalating unlawful War of Aggression on Palestine that make Gaza the world’s largest concentration camp.

The Senate is giving more power to the NSA, in secret. Everyone should fight it

One of the most underrated benefits of Edward Snowden's leaks was how they forced the US Congress to shelve the dangerous, privacy-destroying legislation– then known as Cispa – that so many politicians had been so eager to pass under the guise of "cybersecurity". Now a version of the bill is back, and apparently its authors want to keep you in the dark about it for as long as possible.

Now it's called the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (Cisa), and it is a nightmare for civil liberties. Indeed, it's unclear how this kind of law would even improve cybersecurity. The bill was marked up and modified by the Senate intelligence committee in complete secrecy this week, and only afterward was the public allowed to see many of the provisions passed under its name.

Realistic economic analysis is a rarity. The financial press echoes Wall Street, and Wall Street economists are paid to help sell financial instruments. Gloomy analysis is frowned upon. Even negative quarters are given a positive spin.

Years of understatement of inflation has resulted in years of overstatement of GDP growth. Thinking about the many years of misstatement, we realized that the typical computation in nominal terms of the ratio of debt to GDP is seriously misleading.

Child abusers in the Home Office: Amid the growing furore over a cover-up of a paedophile ring at the heart of Westminster, an expose of the true extent of the scandal

Perhaps the most chilling contribution to this appalling literary enterprise could, however, be found in its final pages.

There sat a biographical essay by Steven Adrian Smith, a man who had achieved notoriety as the chairman of PIE (Paedophile Information Exchange) from 1979 onwards.

Over the course of roughly a dozen pages, Smith told an extraordinary tale.

It described how he had managed, for almost four years, to secretly run the child sex organisation from a small room at the London headquarters of the Home Office, where he worked.

‘PIE did actually have an office in Westminster,’ he gloated, ‘and it was only a smirk away from the desk of the Home Secretary.’

Astonishingly, Smith revealed that, from 1979, he was able not just to gain employment at the Home Office, but also spend most of his (publicly-funded) working day discreetly running PIE affairs from his desk there.

Her appointment has already come under fire as she is the brother-in-law of Sir Michael Havers, a former Attorney General in the 1980s – when the abuse is alleged to have taken place.

Her comments were reportedly made in 2011 during a meeting at the House of Lords with Phil Johnson, who suffered assaults by a number of clergymen when he was a choirboy in the Church of England Diocese of Chichester.

Israel’s message to the Palestinians: Submit, leave or die

Israel’s message is clear is that the military operations had a purpose of their own, that they would have been launched regardless, that they were merely waiting on a pretext. They had to come because the vacuum left by Kerry had to be filled. “Closure” was necessary – and it was clear that the Palestinian Authority, which had several months to take an initiative that would have bolstered the Palestinians’ position, would not do so, even though Martin Indyk, the American’s chief negotiator and former AIPAC leader, placed the blame squarely on Israel for talks’ failure.

Officers in Durham have apparently discovered that they can create the legal pretext for a search by lying about calls to 9-1-1 emergency services that never actually took place. The tactic is apparently legal — and commonplace — according to an officer’s sworn statements.

I chanced across an article documenting how the Zionists had been using the theme of "Six Million Jews" long before World War 2. This article was hosted on scribd and no sooner did I link to that article from whatreallyhappened.com than it was pulled from the scribd server.

The reason for the panic reaction is obvious. As doubts continue to surface regarding the claim of Six Million Jews intentionally exterminated by Germany in the 1940s, evidence that the Six Million "brand" has been used prior to that time undermines its credibility even further.

So where did the Six Million come from, if not in actual fact from the crimes of the Nazis? It actually originates in a prophecy from the Talmud, which states that after Six Million Jews are sacrificed, Israel will be restored to the survivors.

Jean-Claude Juncker tells Britain: There is NO hope of limiting immigrants into UK

Jean-Claude Juncker said EU member states could combat abuse of their systems but the basic right of workers to be able to move around the union was fundamental and not up for negotiation.

He was quizzed in the European Parliament by members of the UK Independence Party and its sister eurosceptic parties including from Italy and Sweden as part of his campaign to win MEPs' support as next Commission president.

David Cameron last month tried to block Mr Juncker's nomination for the post by the EU's 28 member governments, arguing the former Luxembourg PM was a politician of the past and a pro-centraliser who could not deliver the reforms Europe needed.

Diego Garcia: Investigation into Government complicity in CIA programme is 'expedient on grounds of national security', says senior MP

A senior MP has called for a far reaching investigation into the extent of British complicity in the CIA’s extraordinary rendition programme, following the revelation that flight records from the Indian Ocean territory of Diego Garcia have been lost.

Andrew Tyrie, a leading campaigner for British accountability on extraordinary rendition, said the admission on Wednesday by the Foreign Office that flight logs for American aircraft using the UK-owned island had been destroyed meant the “full truth” of whether there was British knowledge of the practice may now never be known.

The Conservative MP and chairman of the Commons’ Treasury select committee tabled the question which lead to FCO ministers admitting that flight records for 2002 - the only year in which Washington has admitted extraordinary rendition flights landed in Diego Garcia - had been partially lost due to “water damage”.

Texas Secessionsit Group President Blast Gov. Rick Perry on Border Security saying” Do your damned job “

These are intermediate steps that Texas can take. Governor Perry still has work to do as Governor. Campaigning, grandstanding and generating “sound bites” on Fox News is no substitute for actual leadership or his Constitutional duties. If he is incapable or unwilling to do so, he should immediately resign and let Lt. Governor Dewhurst take these actions.

Until Perry does everything in his power as Governor to address this issue, he is, essentially, no better than Obama, the US Congress and the rest of the Federal Government on the border issue.

NOT a SMIDGEN of Corruption!

The odds of winning the Florida lottery are 1 in 22,957,480.
The odds of winning the Powerball are 1 in 175,223,510.
The odds of winning Mega Millions are 1 in 258,890,850.

The odds of a disk drive failing in any given month are roughly one in 36. The odds of two different drives failing in the same month are roughly one in 36 squared, or 1 in about 1,300. The odds of three drives failing in the same month are 36 cubed or 1 in 46,656.

The odds of seven different drives failing in the same month (like what happened at the IRS when they received a letter asking about emails targeting conservative and pro-Israeli groups) is 37 to the 7th power = 1 in 78,664,164,096. (That’s over 78 Billion) In other words, the odds are greater that you will win the Florida Lottery 342 times than having those seven IRS hard drives crashing in the same month. Unbelievable odds of it being the truth in my opinion.

The London 7/7 Bombings: Big Questions Never Asked, Let Alone Answered

When the government’s so-called ‘narrative’ was published in May 2006 researchers immediately spotted glaring errors with the alleged bombers journey into London. Home Secretary John Reid was forced into the House of Commons to announce that the train the police said they caught did not run that morning. Although the official story had it they were ‘clean skins,’ it later transpired MI5 had been following them for years. Those were just two in a series of shameful omissions and embarrassing errors in a police investigation and Home Office narrative with a frighteningly short shelf life.

The London Underground CCTV cameras bristling every few yards on the tube and every bus has several, so why were no CCTV pictures ever produced which showed any of the alleged bombers in or getting onto the bombed trains or bus? Verint Systems, an Israeli firm, won the private CCTV contract five months before the attack but no questions appear to have been asked during their vetting, despite Verint’s group chairman, Kobi Alexander, running off with tens of millions of dollars, wanted by Interpol, the FBI and Wall Street regulators the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Parents can get refunds for some anti-depressant drugs given to kids

Thousands of Missouri parents are entitled to refunds for antidepressants prescribed to children because the drugs were unapproved for use in that age group, a federal judge has ruled.

Forest Laboratories and its subsidiary Forest Pharmaceuticals, which is based in Earth City, agreed to pay up to $10.4 million in refunds for misleading parents into giving the drugs Celexa and Lexapro to children and teenagers, according to a recent settlement of a class action lawsuit.

A judge in the case ruled that under the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act, “parents have the right to be fully informed about the potential efficacy of a drug,” said Brent Wisner, a Los Angeles-based attorney for the plaintiffs.

Anyone who bought Celexa for someone under 18 from 1998 to 2013 or Lexapro from 2002 to 2013 is eligible for partial to full refunds, or $50 if the total amount spent on the drugs cannot be proven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And no jail time for the corporate leadership of this organization?!?

In my world, the judge wimped out here completely.

No maker of pharmaceuticals has the right to lie to parents of kids to get their kids to take any kind of medication, period, end of discussion.

The only way to get this behaviour to stop on the part of Big Pharma, is to jail the executives who made the decision to market their drugs inappropriately, and have them serve their time in a regular, hard-time prison.

How Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Congressional Republicans, Worked Together to Create the Flood of Refugee Children Into the U.S

More than half of the top 50 Central American cities from which children are leaving for the United States are in Honduras. Virtually none of the children have come from Nicaragua, a bordering country that has staggering poverty, but not a pervasive gang culture or a record-breaking murder rate. “Everyone has left,” Alan Castellanos, 27, the uncle of Anthony and Kenneth, said in an interview in late May. “How is it that an entire country is being brought to its knees?”

The answer to that question is remarkably clear, and it started actually in 2009.

Perfectly predictable from these ...political pieces of work.

The Mindlessness of a Manifesto

“A liberal world order, like any world order, is something that is imposed, and as much as we in the West might wish it to be imposed by superior virtue, it is generally imposed by superior power” (“Superpowers Don’t Get to Retire: What Our Tired Country Still Owes the World,” Robert Kagan, Brookings Institute. May 26, 2014). This sentence from Kagan’s Neo-Conservative Manifesto reads like so much flotsam in a cesspool of scattered feces. It emanates from a mindless, bloated root chakra that has abandoned all except instinctive self-survival. It is deficient in understanding and wisdom, a mind surviving in an isolated tribe, a being guided only by fear of everlasting victimhood. How does one read this flotsam?

We don’t need to read it, we are witnessing its last throes today in Gaza as the consequences of neo-conservative “superior power” unfurls before the world once again and the desperation of neo-conservative idiocy splashes over the screen for the world to witness.

CrossTalk: Target-Gaza — Norman Finkelstein

Norman Finkelstein: There’ll be peace and tranquility in the land of Israel when Israel negotiates a settlement of the conflict according to International Law. Everybody is ready for the conflict to end except the lunatics in Tel Aviv.

Regarding Israel’s claim that Hamas was responsible for the abduction and murder of the three Israeli youth, Finkelstein said:The US State Department was asked,do you have any evidence,that Hamas was behind this ?Their response was: “As of now, we don’t have any evidence.”

What’s clear is that Prime Minister Netanyahu has used,exploited,this incident for political purposes… to destroy Hamas, and because he wanted to dismantle the Unity Government. Hamas formed the Unity Government on the terms put forward by the US & the EU, notes Norman Finkelstein.

He also notes:“There have been zero casualties on the Israeli side from the so-called “barrage” of rocket attacks…”

Watch: Tony Blair – a “peace envoy” or Israeli ambassador? 

Tony Blair is not a Sabbath Goy, he actually works for Israel 24/7.

In this shameless performance on Ynet, Israel’s most popular media outlet, broadcast on 11 July 2014, Blair misses an opportunity to communicate with Israelis and explain to them for the first time the context in which the conflict in Gaza is taking place. Blair obviously prefers not to upset the Israelis.

Bearing in mind the scale of the crimes Blair committed in Iraq on behalf of Israel and the Jewish lobby, his attitude is understandable. Israel is probably the only country that is willing to give him a shelter.
Apparently, in the last seven years, “peace envoy” Blair has visited Gaza only once.

Americans Are Too Stupid For GMO Labeling, Congressional Panel Says

It's pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they've called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee this week.

The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they're often known in the food industry. And members of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, as well as their four experts, agreed that the genetic engineering of food crops has been a thorough success responsible for feeding the hungry, improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides.

People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they're eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed.

ABC airs Gaza bombing devastation images - says it's in Israel

In the latest case of Western mainstream media confusing the geographical location of warzones, an ABC News anchor described footage of Gaza homes shortly after their destruction by the IDF as belonging to Israel.

On July 8, veteran ABC news anchor Diane Sawyer, 68, opened up a news segment, entitled Under Attack, with the following introduction: “We take you overseas now to the rockets raining down on Israel today, as Israel tried to shoot them out of the sky, all part of the tinderbox, Israelis and Palestinians [sic].”

In two images that accompanied Sawyer’s narration, she says, “Here are two Israelis trying to salvage what they can, while a woman is standing speechless among the ruins.”

There was just one problem: The images of wide-scale physical destruction and human suffering shown in the images were not from Israel, but rather from the Gaza Strip, where the locals have been enduring days of aerial bombings.

Justice declines to pursue allegations that CIA monitored Senate Intel staff

The Justice Department has decided not to pursue accusations that the CIA spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee and allegations that committee staff slipped classified documents from a secure agency facility, McClatchy has confirmed.

"The department carefully reviewed the matters referred to us and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation," said Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr.

The news marks an apparent end to an extraordinary feud that spilled into the public forum in early March over the committee’s report on the agency’s post-9/11 enhanced interrogation program. The dispute included competing Justice Department referrals, with both the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee accusing the other side of criminal conduct throughout the course of the interrogation study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious that Obama's "Justice" department did not want to have the report on "enhanced interrogation" (translation: torture) see the light of day.

FLASHBACK - BOSTON BOMBING - Surveillance video shows bombing suspect putting bag down, walking away: Mass. gov

Surveillance video from the Boston Marathon attack shows one suspect dropping his backpack and calmly walking away from it before the bomb inside exploded, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick said Sunday.

The video clearly puts 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at the scene of the attack, Patrick said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

“It does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion,” Patrick said. “It’s pretty clear about his involvement and pretty chilling, frankly.”

Patrick said he hadn’t viewed the videotape but had been briefed by law enforcement officials about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this to point out that this video has never been released. One would expect that if the government actually had such a solid piece of evidence, it would have been splashed all over the corporate media by now.

Holocaust Or Holohoax? 21 Amazing Facts

In British [and American] Schools, and constantly on British [and American] television, we are bombarded with the alleged murder of 6 million jews by the Germans during World War Two. This is commonly referred to as “The Holocaust”. This alleged historical event is also thrown at anyone objecting to mass immigration in to White Nations as proof of the absolute evil of White Nationalism. In most European Countries even disputing any detail of this alleged historical event is a very serious criminal offence, which can result in up to 20 years imprisonment. In France this can be served in solitary confinement if the authorities believe there is any chance of re-offending.

Even though this blog in no way denies “The Holocaust”, or disputes any of the alleged details of any of the different versions, we did list 21 amazing facts about it here:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In WW2, the nations of the world had sacrificed much blood and treasure on the principle that one nation did not have the right to simply march into another nation and take it over for their own use. Yet, that is exactly what the founders of Israel planned to do to Palestine! So they needed a piece of propaganda powerful enough to convince the world that what Germany had not been allowed to do to Poland and France, Israel had to be allowed to do to Palestine.

So the German slave labor camps were described as death camps. Delousing with insecticide was described as gassing. And the thousands of deaths of all races (including Germans) from the typhus epidemics were described as a deliberate campaign of genocide targeting only the Talmudic six million Jews, a number that had also been used for propaganda purposes in World War 1!

The world fell for the lie, and the same nations which had united to stop Germany from stealing Europe stood back and did nothing while Israel stole Palestine.

Since then, Israel has maintained this myth of six million Jews subjected to extermination by the Germans as it is central to keeping the world from speaking out against Israel's abuses of the Palestinians. Coupled with that is the constant series of propaganda stunts involving false-flag attacks blamed on Palestinians, to keep the world from sympathizing with their suffering' to make it look as if somehow they deserve what is being done to them.

Federal judge orders IRS to explain lost Lerner emails ‘under oath’

A federal judge has ordered the IRS to explain "under oath" how the agency lost a trove of emails from the official at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal.

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency 30 days to file a declaration by an "appropriate official" to address the computer issues with ex-official Lois Lerner.

The decision came Thursday as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which along with GOP lawmakers on Capitol Hill has questioned how the IRS lost the emails and, in some cases, had no apparent way to retrieve them.

Obama administration given heads up about newspaper data destruction

WASHINGTON – The Obama administration knew in advance that the British government would oversee destruction of a newspaper's hard drives containing leaked National Security Agency documents last year, newly declassified documents show. The White House had publicly distanced itself on whether it would do the same to an American news organization.

The Guardian newspaper, responding to threats from the British government in July 2013, destroyed the data roughly a month after it and other media outlets first published details from the top secret documents leaked by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

After news of the Guardian incident broke the following month, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said it would be "very difficult to imagine a scenario in which that would be appropriate." He had been asked whether the U.S. would ever order the destruction of a U.S. media company's computer data.

Justice Corrupted – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The “War on Terror” has likewise created a special circumstance that has liberated Justice Department dogmatists: Islamophobes, Zionists, neoconservatives and others who fancy themselves on a special mission to protect the nation from evil and conspiratorial forces. And, as with the hanging judges before them, the result has been an enhanced possibility not of justice, but rather of the miscarriage of justice.

A recent poll conducted by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense team, part of an effort to force a change of venue for his trial, found that a majority of Bostonians—58 percent—are already convinced the accused Marathon bomber is “definitely guilty.” That may be persuasive to the presiding judge. But what’s perhaps more interesting is that the poll found a sizable number of Boston residents—42 percent—are still “unsure,” indicating that even the population with the closest proximity to the April 15, 2013, act of terrorism still harbor doubts about the “official” version of events.

Get Israel out of the West Bank

So are the people advocating firing rockets in Gaza the same type of ditzy lefties and/or Israeli stooges as the ones in the US Congress ?

To the best of my knowledge, none of the many rockets fired into Israel from Gaza have ever hit a military or police target. Most of them fail, are intercepted, or hit open desert. The few that do hit something hit civilian homes and buildings, doing minimal damage. Casualties inflicted are also few.

What they DO accomplish is to give Israel a minimal pretext which the Israelis greatly exaggerate to “justify” their attacks on Gaza and to solicit funds from the United States.

Blowing the whistle on World Bank whistleblower Karen Hudes

Source: http://sgtreport.com/2014/07/on-karen-hudes-the-real-2nd-species-psych...
The debate about Karen Hudes rages on. Some call her a whistle blower while others are blowing the whistle on her, claiming that she's less than honest. In this interview I speak with Jason Erb, founder of http://fauxcapitalist.com/, the website from which we posted two articles that are critical of Karen. Although it is never our goal to disparage any of our guests, Jason contacted me and wanted to discuss Karen's claims about mountains of hidden gold, the death of the global control monetary system and a "second species" - which to me sounds a lot like the psychopathic bankers which plague humanity. Please listen and leave us your thoughts in the comments section below.

APD to buy 350-plus AR-15 rifles

Salt in the wounds!

Created: 07/09/2014 10:39 PM
By: Ryan Luby, KOB Eyewitness News 4

New Mexico's largest police department, mired in controversy over the use of excessive force, is about to supply military-style weapons to officers using taxpayer money.

The investigative team at KOB Eyewitness News 4 learned that Albuquerque Police awarded a bid to a local vendor for the purchase of AR-15 rifles -- the type of gun used to kill James Boyd in the foothills in March.

According to the request for bid, which ended two weeks ago, the department would likely purchase 350 guns in the first year of a two-year contract. Thereafter, it would order quantities of 50 as necessary.

"You're asking for trouble, in my opinion," Peter Simonson, Executive Director of the ACLU of New Mexico said.

Files on UK role in CIA rendition accidentally destroyed, says minister

The British government's problems with missing files deepened dramatically when the Foreign Office claimed documents on the UK's role in the CIA's global abduction operation had been destroyed accidentally when they became soaked with water.

In a statement that human rights groups said "smacked of a cover-up", the department maintained that records of post-9/11 flights in and out of Diego Garcia, the British territory in the Indian Ocean, were "incomplete due to water damage".

Exclusive: More Military Bases Asked to Provide Facilities for Illegal Aliens

As the border crisis continues, the Department of Defense is requesting that additional military bases make housing facilities and land available to accommodate a continued influx of illegal alien children.

According to information provided exclusively to Breitbart through a source requesting anonymity, Major General John T. Winters has specifically requested installation support for the Department of Homeland Security to provide temporary housing to unaccompanied alien children. The request requires bases to report any facilities across the U.S. that meet the following minimum specifications: a 24,000 square foot building, 15 acres of land "level and clear," and access to utilities. The information is due to be reported by Wednesday afternoon, July 9. As the border crisis continues, the Department of Defense is requesting that additional military bases make housing facilities and land available to accommodate a continued influx of illegal alien children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason for housing these illegal immigrants on military encampments is simple; should reporters, or, God forbid, members of congress actually want to inspect these facilities to find out what is really going on, they can be rebuffed in the name of "national security"

Unfortunately, however, the United States of American HAS no "national security", courtesy of a deliberate Obama administration decision to completely leave our Southern borders undefended.

They are now undefended against disease; against possible "terrorists" sneaking in; and this economy will crash, because the US government doesn't have the money to pay for all of the services these illegal aliens will require.

But perhaps a "controlled economic crash" is precisely what the White House wants to have happen. As reported in zerohedge.com two days ago:

So just maybe the Fed fully intends on heeding the advice of the BIS, and is strategically positioning itself as a stalwart dove to shield itself from the public fallout of it’s orchestrated financial calamity. A particularly sound play from a political perspective in the event that things don’t go as smoothly as planned. One thing is certain at this point: An intentionally orchestrated crash is the direct recommendation of the BIS, per it’s annual report. That this action exists as a potential policy measure is now confirmed. The remaining question is: Would the Federal Reserve pursue such a policy measure openly, or behind the same curtains from which most of their historic policies were enacted. As we re-think Mrs. Yellen’s speech to the IMF, we are less certain that the Fed is as unwilling to intervene as Mrs Yellen would have us believe. Bringing forward the next leg of the cycle, may well be on the Fed’s agenda.

White House won’t comment on expulsion of top spy from Germany

The White House Thursday refused to comment on reports Germany had expelled its top spy in the country over an espionage row, but stressed intelligence ties between the two nations were vital.

Germany took the shock move after investigating two German men alleged to be acting as double agents for US intelligence, the latest twist in a long running showdown over American covert activity in the country.

“We have seen these reports and have no comment on a purported intelligence matter,” said National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden.

“However, our security and intelligence relationship with Germany is a very important one and it keeps Germans and Americans safe,” Hayden said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of COURSE, the US had no comment; what were the spokesdorks supposed to say on a matter of this magnitude?!?

Spying on one's alleged enemies is one thing; but spying on one of your allegedly geopolitically BFFs?!? That's tasteless, crude, and insulting.

Angela Merkel has to be steaming right now; and the big question now is, how will Germany actually respond as a nation to this?!?

I can guarantee the Obama administration one thing: it won't be pretty, coming hard on the heels of the previous spy scandal regarding Germany this year.

Monsanto's Herbicide Linked to Fatal Kidney Disease Epidemic: Could It Topple Monsanto?

Monsanto's herbicide Roundup has been linked to a mysterious fatal kidney disease epidemic that has appeared in Central America, Sri Lanka and India.
For years, scientists have been trying to unravel the mystery of a chronic kidney disease epidemic that has hit Central America, India and Sri Lanka. The disease occurs in poor peasant farmers who do hard physical work in hot climes. In each instance, the farmers have been exposed to herbicides and to heavy metals. The disease is known as CKDu, for Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown etiology. The "u" differentiates this illness from other chronic kidney diseases where the cause is known. Very few Western medical practitioners are even aware of CKDu, despite the terrible toll it has taken on poor farmers from El Salvador to South Asia.

David McQueen, a US delegate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who has since retired from the agency, explained the US position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That such toxic chemicals are allowed to be sold - ANYWHERE - demonstrates, without question, the toxic grip Monsanto has on politicians world-wide.

ANTI ADL HATE CAMPAIGN GOING VIRAL ON TWITTER

The ADL has been a consistent embarrassment to the Jewish community and its campaign to justify the bombing of Gaza is just the latest act in a storied history of shameful behavior. While Israel does have a legitimate right and responsibility to protect its citizens from attack, and while I strenuously oppose all attacks against civilians, to pretend that this current escalation is merely a defensive measure by Israel and not part of a greater policy to undermine the PA unity deal is to deny the obvious.

It’s quite satisfying that the ADL’s original ad got retweeted just 26 times, while Sieradski’s spoof is at close to 800 retweets!

Israel escalates aerial offensive on Gaza

Israel dramatically escalated its aerial assault in Gaza Thursday hitting hundreds of Hamas targets, and the Palestinians said a family of eight was killed in a strike that destroyed their home. Israel's missile defense system once again intercepted rockets fired by militants at the country's heartland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

AOL is trying to sell Israeli media propaganda that Israel hit hundreds of Hamas targets, but the photos clearly show apartments and houses in civilian neighborhoods. Israel bombed a cafe where the customers were watching the World Cup. There are no no photos of any damage on the Israeli side and no casualties--not even wounded people. This is why ABC's Diane Sawyer used photos of the destruction in Gaza and tried to claim it was Israel. As for the "successful" intercepts by Iron Dome, the actual rate is less than 50%, with the Palestinians firing 15 rockets into Israel (at a cost of less than $1000 each) and Israel intercepting just 7. Israel won't say how many Iron Dome rockets $50,000 each, paid for by the US taxpayer) they had to fire to hit those 7 inbounds, so the success rate may actually be worse.

Jewish Hate of Arabs Proves: Israel Must Undergo Cultural Revolution

Without a revolution based on humanist values, the Jewish tribe will not be worthy of its own state.

There are no words to describe the horror allegedly done by six Jews to Mohammed Abu Khdeir of Shoafat. Although a gag order bars publication of details of the terrible murder and the identities of its alleged perpetrators, the account of Abu Khdeir’s family — according to which the boy was burned alive — would horrify any mortal. Anyone who is not satisfied with this description, can view the horror movie in which members of Israel’s Border Police are seen brutally beating Tariq Abu Khdeir, the murder victim’s 15-year-old cousin.

10 Naked Truths About the American Police State

John W. Whitehead
Activist Post

“The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who is able to think things out for himself…Almost inevitably, he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane, and intolerable.”—H.L. Mencken, American journalist.

It’s vogue, trendy and appropriate to look to dystopian literature as a harbinger of what we’re experiencing at the hands of the government. Certainly, George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm have much to say about government tyranny, corruption, and control, as does Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report. Yet there are also older, simpler, more timeless stories—folk tales and fairy tales—that speak just as powerfully to the follies and foibles in our nature as citizens and rulers alike that give rise to tyrants and dictatorships...

Chomsky, BDS And The Jewish Left Paradigm

The message to the Palestinian Western activists who worked for years to build a dialogue with the Jewish Left is simple and devastating – you went to bed with the wrong people. Trust in the Jewish left killed your resistance and seems to have killed whatever is left of your cause.

The verdict is clear. The occupation is not the problem; it is just a symptom of the problem. The Jewish state is a problem and it is a serious problem. The Jewish Lobby is an even greater problem and it is a global one. And as it seems, even the Jewish Left a la Chomsky is also a grave problem. At the very least it has been an obstacle that prevented the Palestinians from grasping the real context of their struggle.

FLASHBACK - Media "Distortions"

ABC's John Stossel apologizes!

On February 8th, 2000 20/20 broadcast a story by John Stossel claiming that foods sold at organic and health food stores were no more safe to eat than food bought at conventional supermarkets. Stossel claimed that tests commissioned by ABC TV showed that food purchased at organic markets had higher rates of E. Coli contamination and equivalent amounts of pesticides.

Investigation by the Environmental Working Group revealed that the experts cited by ABC's 20/20 for the story had never actually performed the tests ABC claimed in the story.

Despite the embarrassment, Stossel repeated the story on July 7, 2000, informing the EWG through an intermediary that he would not even respond to the allegations. ABC TV, however, embarrassed by the publicity, ordered Stossel to apologize.

Stossel has also been accused of mireporting in his story on Erin Brockovich, the California woman who found Chromium 6 in her town's drinking water.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As ABC tries to distance itself from their attempt to show the destruction of Gaza and claim it is Israel suffering from Palestinian rockets, it is important to recall that such blatant deceptions are business-as-usual for the corporate media. Here are just a few examples.

Jul 10 07:26

ABC News tells viewers that scenes of destruction in Gaza are in Israel

More than fifty Palestinians have been killed and another 450 wounded since Monday in Israel’s ongoing assault on the besieged Gaza Strip, dubbed “Operation Protective Edge” by the Israeli army.

As usual, mainstream media outlets are straining to paint Israel as the victim, defending its people against irrational Palestinian rocket fire.

There is no equating the killing and maiming of dozens of innocent Palestinians with scared Israelis seeking shelter from crude rockets that rarely cause damage. But that hasn’t stopped media outlets from trying, and in some cases, outright lying, to distort the violence.

In one stark example, ABC News’ Diane Sawyer misidentifies scenes of the aftermath of Israeli missile strikes in Gaza as destruction caused by Palestinian rocket fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ABC, the "Food Lion" network, has been forced to issue an apology, which they made on their twitter feed ... once. But don't worry, ABC, we here in the independent media will make sure the whole world knows what you sphincters did!

The Palestinian father who was blown clean out of his home: Tragedy of man who came round to learn his wife and son had died in direct hit on his house

A Palestinian father was blasted yards from his house in the Gaza Strip after a direct missile strike that killed his wife and son.

Shocking photos of Mustafa Malaka sprawled in the rubble emerged this evening as Israeli bombing of the Hamas-controlled region instesified.

Today the Israeli army stepped up its offensive, killing 17 Palestinians including 11 women and children in strikes, hiking the overall death toll to 47 in two days, hospital officials said. More than 300 people have been wounded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article contains a lot of photographs of the destruction to Gaza done by Israel. Take a look at them, then compare with this photo of the "damage" caused by a rocket from Gaza to Israel!

No wonder ABC tried to show photos of Gaza bomb victims and claim they were Israelis!

T-Mobile knowingly placed bogus charges on phone bills; profited millions, says FTC

U.S.-based mobile phone carrier T-Mobile is the subject of a new federal lawsuit alleging fraudulent charges on customers' bills. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says T-Mobile unlawfully charged wireless subscribers bogus fees for services they never signed up for, and then deceptively tried to hide these charges on their bills, pocketing millions of dollars in the process.

According to the Associated Press, federal regulators had been unsuccessful in negotiating with T-Mobile prior to filing the suit, which accuses the nation's third-largest wireless carrier of scamming customers. Recurrent charges for so-called "premium" services like horoscope texts and funky ringtones were quietly embedded within customers' bills, alleges the agency, with no clear indication of their presence.

Emails Point to IRS Officials Using Instant Messages

WASHINGTON—Lawmakers investigating the Internal Revenue Service's treatment of conservative groups released new emails Wednesday suggesting that top IRS officials communicated through an instant-messaging system that wasn't routinely archived.

The revelation adds to lawmakers' concerns about the agency's handling of documents related to their inquiry into the IRS's alleged targeting of conservative tea-party groups for burdensome scrutiny as they sought tax-exempt status.

Republicans already have criticized the IRS for losing about two years' worth of emails that could be important to the probe, largely because a computer hard drive belonging to a former top IRS official, Lois Lerner, crashed in mid-2011. Backup tapes storing the messages were routinely reused after six months.

The latest emails suggest that IRS officials used a separate instant-messaging system whose contents also weren't preserved.

According to Iraq's UN ambassador, Mohamed Ali Alhakim, about 40 kilograms of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University. He added that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."

"Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state," Alhakim told UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

A fairly accurate summary by Harry Clark.

US diplomats, military and intelligence officers, politicians, academics and journalists critical of the US-Israel relationship,in Washington and elsewhere gathered On March 7, 2014 with other critics in Washington, at the Washington DC National Press Club for a “National Summit to Reassess the U.S.-Israel ‘Special Relationship.” The event was organized by the Council for the National Interest, If Americans Knew, Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy, and Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. It was a full day of six panels with a total of 25 speakers. Despite the full program moderators kept the event on schedule. The ballroom of the National Press Club was filled, and the event was broadcast live on C-Span. Video of each panel and separate audio for each speaker, and near-complete transcripts, are at the IRMEP program page and the natsummit.org page.

Ex-Home Office worker says taxpayer's money was given to paedophile group

A former civil servant has insisted the Home Office did give grants to a paedophile group - and the payments were sanctioned by the police.

Tim Hulbert, who worked in the department’s Voluntary Services Unit which was responsible for distributing cash awards to community groups, said the Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) did receive taxpayers’ money from the Home Office.

He added that the grants to PIE were made on the orders of the Special Branch.

Mr Hulbert’s account raises the prospect of the grants being in some way related to police infiltration of PIE, which was affiliated to Liberty, the civil rights group, and ultimately disbanded in 1984.

It also contradicts an official Home Office report, published earlier this week, which said the department had not “directly or indirectly” funded PIE, even though more than £470,000 was given to groups linked to it between 1974 and 1984.
