10 Facts That Prove “Sandy Hook Shooting” was a Hoax

The medical examiner claimed that the children were killed with the rifle. But the rifle was found in the truck of a Adam Lanza car. So who did all the shooting if the rifle was in the trunk of a car? and why would the medical examiner say that the children were killed with the rifle ?

Emily Parker’s dad was laughing and smiling right before he gave an official interview on CNN. Let me ask you a question if you lost a child would you be laughing and smiling 24 hours after the death of your loved one?

Who created the Emily Parker Fan page on Dec 14th just a few hours before the shooting. I just want to know what kind of a person makes a Facebook Fund Page while their child in in the school on a lock-down yet they still didn’t know the condition of their daughter? she was not even confirmed dead yet…. i smell BS

Sony Hackers Threaten 911 Attack On Movie Theaters

A threatening message from the Guardians of Peace, the group responsible for hacking into and releasing more than a terabyte of Sony’s internal data so far, is alleging an attack on movie theaters that plan to screen Seth Rogen and James Franco’s movie “The Interview.”

“The world will be full of fear,” the message, first reported by BuzzFeed, reads. “Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time. (If your house is nearby, you’d better leave.).”

Which theater will show what movie isn’t usually available until just days before a release. However, the Interview, a movie about an assassination attempt on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, is scheduled for a wide release this Christmas. This threat could affect thousands of theaters across the U.S.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And where is the mighty NSA in all this? We have this huge spy system that cost billions of dollars, has violated the Fourth Amendment, which said spying along with torture has destroyed the reputation of the United States around the world, and for the last year that SONY knew they had an intrusion have been unable to find these hackers!

Here we are being told there is an actual threat of terror; the very reason we were told we had to accept the NSA peeking at our wives and daughters through our webcams, and the NSA has come up short.

Or maybe the NSA are the hackers, so they can say, "See? You NEED us!" after some patsy gets framed for the hack down the road!

17-Year-Old Trading Genius Who “Made ” $72 Million Actually Just “Made It All Up”

Tyler Durden: Yesterday, when we skeptically mocked the NY Mag’s Jessica Pressler coverage of Mohammed Islam, the 17-year-old wunderkind who “allegedly” made $72 million in the market by trading penny stocks, we covered the salient lies and told readers to “feel free to click on the NY Mag’s story about the young “multi-millionaire” – after all that was the whole point.”

Sure enough, in the finest tradition of the New Republic’s Stephen Glass, the entire article was nothing more than one epic big clickbait fest.

'Children were forced to watch as their teacher was burned alive': Survivors reveal horror inside Pakistan school as nine Taliban gunmen bomb and shoot to death 132 children

Meanwhile, terrifying accounts of the children's ordeal began to emerge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is obviously another false-flag stunt. The US Government is trying to evade the consequences of their use of torture on prisoners by selling the idea that everyone who was tortured deserved it because of 9-11 (even if they had nothing to do with it) because they are all just evil wicked Arab Muslims who commit atrocities. The false-flag down in Sydney did not produce enough dead bodies to register on most peoples' media radar, so today they up the ante.

But stop and think for a moment. Any group that wants to change the status quo needs the support of the general public. Such a group is not going to carry out any action that would wreck that popular support. If George Washington and Thomas Jefferson had kicked in the doors of a colonial school and killed a bunch of children, how successful do you think they would have been at their objective, which was to get the British to leave? The answer is, "not very."

The same applies here. Attacking a school is intended to produce the maximum shock and revulsion in the public mind, something not useful to an agenda of sociopolitical change, but very useful for those who want to prevent that change.

And, as noted below, Blackwater/Xi (or whatever they are calling themselves this week) has a prior history of carrying out false-flag attacks in Pakistan which are then blamed on the Taliban. This appears to be more of the same.

Look at the third picture down. How convenient that they already had coffins in place to use!

Israel Framed CIA in Backing Jundallah Terrorists

The 2007 revelation by ABC News that the Bush Administration was covertly backing the Jundallah terrorist organization in an effort to convince them to launch attacks on Iran was no small embarrassment for the administration, and a considerable source of tension with the Shi’ite world as the militants attacked mosques and killed large numbers of civilians.

The only problem is, it apparently didn’t happen. At least not the way ABC News claims. Instead of being direct US backing, by way of the CIA, for a State Department listed terrorist organization (a big no-no), Foreign Policy is reporting today that the whole thing was actually a Mossad plot designed to frame the CIA and the administration.

According to one source, who had knowledge of information from three employees, at least one office has been affected in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood, where the retailer’s sprawling campus is located. A second source also said the same building was evacuated.

The building we are hearing has been closed by the scare is Day 1 South, which is located on a major courtyard at the company’s headquarters. Day One North is unaffected.

Conflicting Reports: Hostages From Inside Lindt Cafe Post Terrorists Demands To Facebook; Self Proclaimed Member Of ISIS

Videos allegedly made by hostages inside the terrorist contained further details about the hostage taker and his demands, but were soon removed by YouTube.

A Facebook post attributed to a victim of the Sydney cafe siege which purports to contain a list of demands from the hostage taker states that the terrorist is a self-proclaimed member of ISIS, that two other accomplices have placed bombs elsewhere in the city, and that he will start killing hostages unless his demands are met.

Hackers promise “Christmas present” Sony Pictures won’t like

This weekend, the “Guardians of Peace”—the cyber-attackers who brought Sony Pictures Entertainment’s network down in November and have since shared over a terabyte of the company’s internal data—made two more dumps of SPE data to file sharing sites and torrents. The second of the two, on Sunday, was the e-mail box of Sony Pictures Releasing International President Steven O’Dell. And the hackers promised a “Christmas present” soon of even more data if the company does not relent and meet their unspecified demands.

Boston Bombing: Feds Admit No Evidence Tsarnaev Brothers Involved in the Slayings

For nearly any crime requiring a “Whodunnit” answer in Boston around the time of the April 15, 2013, Marathon bombing, the authorities answered: The Tsarnaev brothers.

One egregious crime pinned on them was a grisly Sept. 11, 2011, triple murder in Waltham, Mass.

Now, prosecutors in the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have delivered a shocking reversal. They admit to having no evidence that his dead brother, Tamerlan, was involved in the slayings.

That wasn’t the case right after the bombing: law enforcement fingered Tamerlan as the perpetrator, and suggested Dzokhar may have been involved. Much of the media has presented it as fact ever since.

This is a pattern we’ve seen since the bombing: The government feeds prejudicial information (usually anonymously) to the press, implying Tamerlan and Dzhokhar’s guilt, despite having flimsy or no evidence. In the most extreme example, prosecutors had to completely recant their accusation thatthe brothers robbed a 7-Eleven.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FBI was trying to coerce Ibragim Todashev into saying that the Tsarnaev brothers were the killers in the triple murder, but apparently Ibragim resisted to the point where he was shot several times by one of the FBI agents, including a kill shot to the top of his head. The FBI agent has never been charged with the murder, carried out while trying to frame someone else for a murder.

Terrorists, My Arse

Am I offending the families of the persons who may get hurt in Sydney today? Maybe so, but I am un-offending the rest of us. We need to get sensible, Folks. We should have been quicker and firmer in noting that the terrorism that befell Ottawa a few weeks ago looked very scripted.

We need a measuring stick for these things, one that any citizen can apply. Example: after dropping bombs at the Boston Marathon, the brother Tsarnaev did a ‘carjacking.’ That’s diagnostic. If those boys needed a ride, they had only to drop into the subway at Copley Square and be transported to their choice of remote towns.

Far as I know, the Powers That Be are so drunk with their success in using the word ‘terrorist,’ or even the quick-symbol word ‘Muslim,’ to scare people into accepting authoritarianism that they have completely overdone it.

Pirates with Nukes

NeoCon Glenn Beck is a devoted cheerleader of Zionism. Making things worse, he is also a Dispensationalist. Departing from the solid research on condemning the failed philosophy of Progressivism, Beck demeans his audience with a false history of Palestine and the nature of the Israeli state. His religious doctrine regarding Israel makes him an apostate. Duping well intentions, but ill-informed viewers into accepting the crimes of Israel, as the will of God, is why he is a Trojan horse.

He is just one of the countless buffoons or propagandists who earned their place in the media circus by proving their loyalty to a gang of criminals. Israel is no ally of the United States. Zionism is not a victim. "Likudnick" Benjamin Bebe Netanyahu is no friend of America. Most importantly, not all Jews are Zionists or even support the state of Israel.

‘Was my son lynched?’ FBI to investigate hanging death of black North Carolina teen

The state medical examiner, who performed an autopsy, ruled Lacy’s death a suicide. Some residents criticized authorities for not probing further, even if to support the suicide finding. But on Friday, amid calls for federal authorities to step in, Bladen County prosecutor Jon David said in a televised news conference that the case remains open and that he welcomed help from the FBI.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Government is desperate to turn the American people against each other; to divide us to keep us conquered. That the FBI is involved is very telling in that it was the FBI's COINTELPRO program of the 1960s that used dirty tricks such as the Black Panther Coloring Book to anger the blacks and whites against each other so we could not unite in opposition to the war in Vietnam.

THE LAVON AFFAIR - IS HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?

In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

Cardboard cutouts of black LYNCHING victims linked to Eric Garner protests found hanging on campus at Berkeley

Cardboard cutouts of lynching victims were found hanging from ropes around the campus of the University of California in Berkeley, apparently linked to protests over the death of Eric Garner.

Three of the effigies were pictured around campus - one hanging from a gate, another from a tree and one on the floor held up by an activist.

The lifesize cardboard figures - which seemed to resemble historical lynching victims from 1911 - was printed with a slogan linked to protests over Eric Garner's death by apparent chokehold at the hands of the NYPD.

Obama under fire for castigating Bush-era torture program and claiming moral high ground all while his administration kills 'thousands of innocents' during droning of terrorism suspects

President Barack Obama is under fire this week for the way his White House has excoriated the previous administration for employing tactics it would categorize as torture all the while launching drone strikes on terrorism suspects abroad.

The enhanced interrogation techniques used by the CIA during the George W. Bush administration on 39 detainees resulted in just one death, Obama's critics have pointed out. Drone strikes conducted by the current occupant of the White House have killed more than 2,400 people.

After claiming all week that the release of a Senate Intelligence Committee report detailing the brutal tactics employed by the Bush administration to elicit information from terrorists was necessary in order for the U.S. to reassert it's 'moral authority,' the White House was forced on Friday to state on record that it doesn't believe its drone policy erodes the moral high ground on which it thinks it stands when it comes to human rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This man is seriously, and dangerously, out of touch with the carnage his drone strike policy has caused, and the damage it has done to world perception of American jurisprudence.

Torture is absolutely wrong, and the only people who defend it are sick, twisted pieces of work who probably belong in an institution.

But extrajudicial assassinations are completely contrary to both the spirit, and literal interpretations, of the Constitution, and Bill of Rights. They are un-American in the extreme, in a society where presumption of innocence is the basis upon which all suspected criminals are to be judged by a jury of their peers.

It is an interesting psychological insight into our President that this is his preferred method of killing people he deems "dangerous".

I rather think not. Innocent people in this country are getting slaughtered in this country, just for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. And before you criticize that outlook, please consider the following, as reported yesterday at blacklistednews.com:

Acting on a bogus tip about methamphetamine from a car thief, the Laurens County Sheriff’s office obtained a search warrant for the home of devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, David Hooks. An hour after the judge signed the warrant police raided Hooks’ house and took the life of this innocent grandfather. An attorney representing David Hooks’ widow says that the September 24, shooting did not go down as law enforcement authorities stated in initial news releases, and the “true facts of this tragedy are in stark contrast” to official accounts. At approximately 11:00 pm on September 24, Laurens County Sheriff’s deputies barged unannounced into the home of Hooks. The sheriff’s office claims Hooks was shot after he got out a firearm and started showing aggression. Hooks was met with 17 shots from SWAT officers. Since the Free Thought Project initially reported on this killing by police in October, recent revelations show that not only were no shots fired, but the shotgun wasn’t even loaded. Even if the shotgun would have been load and Hooks would have shot at the officers, he had every right, as he was protecting his wife and home from, who he perceived to be unannounced intruders, who obviously meant him harm. Police, adamant on trying to justify their breaking and entering and subsequent murder, searched the home for 44 straight hours and didn’t find one single shred of contraband. Mitchell Shook is the attorney for the family and he is asking for the FBI to investigate, citing that the raid was illegal. According to WMAZ, the family’s attorney says Hooks had four wounds, two of which he says are very problematic. Shook says that’s according to the Laurens County EMS records. He says the same information is found in the medical records from Fairview Park Hospital. “One was to the side of the head, the other, was in his back, the back of his left shoulder, based on the evidence we see, we believe that David Hooks was face down on the ground when he received those last two shots,” says Shook. Teresa Hooks who is still experiencing a nightmare inflicted upon her by those sworn to protect and serve, recalls that horrid night.

I would like to be able to even think that this raid, and other ones like it, where there is no true vetting of the information to begin with, are abberations in law enforcement; unfortunately, they are becoming much more standard.

Defense Bill Passes, Giving Sacred Native American Sites To Mining Company

The U.S. Senate passed a measure authorizing the nation’s defense programs Friday, and along with it managed to give lands sacred to Native Americans to a foreign company that owns a uranium mine with Iran.

The $585 billion National Defense Authorization Act of 2015 is one of the must-pass pieces of legislation that Congress moves every year. But like they did in attaching extraneous riders to the must-pass government funding bill, lawmakers used the defense bill as a vehicle to pass a massive public lands package.

The bill sailed through on a vote of 89 to 11.

Many of the land measures were popular. But one, the Southeast Arizona Land Exchange and Conservation Act, had twice failed to win support in the House of Representatives, blocked both by conservationists and conservatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You've got to wonder how many members of the Senate own shares in this company. Oh, and about the country's "environmental record", if one can call it that?!?!

The following seems to be pretty damned representative of this:

Me’ekamui, the ‘Sacred Island’ of Bougainville is seen by its people as a natural, God-given inheritance to be willfully preserved from generation to generation. These indigenous people flourished here for thousands of years—thriving on the island’s rich resources of rain forested land and teeming rivers. Generations of Bougainvilleans built their culture into a productive self-sufficient economy. Since time immemorial, land on Bougainville has been owned on a clan basis, being passed down from mother to daughter. Land boundaries are well known, and have been respected for thousands of years. According to custom, clans hold the rights to the land, the sky above and the earth below. Disrespecting this longtime custom, corporate greed bloodied the heart and soul of Bougainville with the construction of the Panguana mine. Desperate Survival Once Rio Tinto set foot on their land in 1960, the villagers witnessed almost an immediate sense of loss. Their health, environmental resources and livelihood were forsaken for corporate gain. Almost immediately, the Bougainvilleans fell sick from exposure to the mine’s toxins, chemicals and air pollutants. Upper respiratory infections such as Asthma and TB became more common, and even killed people. Children became ill with coughs, colds and chronic ear infections. Many women even died giving birth, because of the lack of basic medicine and care. As Rio Tinto ravaged the island mining for copper, the company dumped waste rock and tailings, turning the river valleys into a virtual wasteland. Fish and whole forests died, depleting the villagers of their major food source, and eliminating their cash cropping systems. The villagers lost their property due to ongoing environmental contamination. Their water became non-potable, and they were forced to come up with other resources for survival. Unable to live this way, the people pleaded to Rio Tinto to give them control of their own land surrounding the mine. When Rio Tinto ignored their request, the Bougainvilleans united in the name of their culture and fought for their right to their inherent resources. The Bougainvilleans’ fight for their rights left many people dead and many more injured. Three entire principal villages were relocated, and many life-long inhabitants were forced to flee the island. - See more at: http://the-truth-reveal.blogspot.com/2007/09/rio-tinto-environmental-destruction.html#sthash.SNSrWetU.dpuf

And then, there's this lovely little story from Mongolia:

The Network is focusing support in Mongolia, where Rio Tinto has invested billions and mine workers are particularly vulnerable. The company has a US $6 billion investment in the vast Oyu Tolgoi copper and gold mine in the Gobi Desert. Workers there are represented by IndustriALL affiliate the Federation of Energy, Geology and Mining Workers’ Trade Unions of Mongolia (MEGM). Last year, Rio Tinto was condemned by the Supreme Court in Mongolia for wage discrimination against Mongolian nationals and unfair dismissal. The company also faced international criticism for sacking thousands of workers in the country without adequate consultation. ndustriALL assistant general secretary Kemal Özkan says that with the campaign, IndustriALL Global Union aims to build union power at Rio Tinto plants around the world, uniting workers in the struggle for decent work: “Rio Tinto has extensive experience in causing one conflict after another with trade unions, indigenous organizations, environmental groups and other key community stakeholders. Unions and civil society are coming together in an unprecedented way to push back against Rio Tinto for the benefit of workers, the environment and communities.” “For far too long, Rio Tinto has systematically put profits before people, sometimes with fatal consequences like the recent deaths at the Grasberg mine in Papua New Guinea. Workers are saying enough is enough,” says Kemal Özkan. The Network meeting follows a global day of protests on 7 October as as part of IndustriALL’s campaign to demand a new era at Rio Tinto.

More slow genocide for America's First Nations: more profit for a company whose "contributions", most likely, have lead to the electoral success of many of those senators voting for this rider.

1936: ZIONISTS WHINE ABOUT 'HOLOCAUST' 7 YEARS BEFORE IT 'HAPPENS'

False alarm bells regarding the deaths of "millions of Jews" rang during both World War I and the Russian Civil War which followed. During the loud sound and smoky fury of wartime, such tall tales of genocide at least appeared to be somewhat plausible to the superficial reader of the newspapers which carried such fabricated accounts. But during the peacetime of the 1930's, even the most dim-witted newspaper worshipper would never believe such tales. Yet, as we shall soon see, that didn't stop the audacious Zionists from trying.

As the Berlin Olympics of 1936 approaches, Adolf Hitler has been in power for nearly 3 & 1/2 years. The initial anti-German hate campaign of 1933-34 has subsided as the world now realizes that the atrocity propaganda was false.

Levin releases new information from CIA cable debunking Atta Prague meeting

Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, today plans to introduce into the Congressional Record important new information about how Bush administration officials misled the nation in advance of the Iraq War, and called on CIA Director John Brennan to fully declassify an important 2003 CIA cable.

Levin will introduce a letter he received from CIA Director John Brennan, declassifying for the first time some details of a March 2003 CIA cable warning the Bush administration against references to the allegation that Mohammad Atta, the leader of the 9/11 hijackers, had met before the attacks in Prague, Czech Republic, with an Iraqi intelligence officer. He also introduced a translated excerpt from a book by the former head of Czech counterintelligence, describing U.S. pressure to confirm that the meeting took place. In fact, no such meeting occurred. And he called on Brennan to fully declassify the CIA cable.

Senator: Bush misled nation in run-up to Iraq war

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee released new information on Thursday that he claims is evidence that the Bush administration misled the nation in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

In a speech on the Senate floor, retiring Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., outlined a 2003 CIA cable that warns George W. Bush administration officials against making references to claims that Mohammad Atta - the man who led the 9/11 hijackers - met with an Iraqi intelligence officer in the Czech Republic before the Sept. 11, 2011, attacks. Levin claims Bush officials used the unconfirmed meeting to link Iraq to 9/11 to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All wars are started with lies. The people of the initiating nation do not want to go to war, as it is dirty, hard, dangerous, and ill-paid. No ruler dares come out and say, "Attack this other land because I want them attacked." Nobody would listen, or would demand a just share of the loot. Thus, the leaders who out of their own greed and lust for conquest must deceive the populace into thinking war is their only option, with frauds such as the Gleiwitz incident, torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, or 9-11.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With all of America now aware that the US Government lied to them about the use of torture it is time to remind Americans of the other lies told by the US Government, including the lies used to trick us into war with Iraq. Every crippled veteran, every family member of a serviceman who died, should finally accept that those who were killed and crippled suffered only to make rich men richer. Where is the rage?

New evidence Bush misled Americans into Iraq war – senator

The chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee has released new information claiming the Bush administration misled the American people in the run-up to the war in Iraq.

Levin, who is retiring, maintains that Bush officials used the unconfirmed meeting to link Iraq to 9/11 and Al-Qaeda in order to justify the US invasion in Iraq.

THE PARABLE OF THE PIZZA PARLOR AND THE TACO STAND

Once upon a time there was a small town with a small town square. On one side of the square was a pizza parlor. On the other side of the square was a taco stand.

Every evening after work the townspeople would go into the town square for dinner. Those who loved pizza would go to the pizza parlor, while those who favored tacos would go to the taco stand. and they would eat their meals and talk about the day's events until it was time to go home to bed.

Then one day, a stranger appeared at the door of the pizza parlor. He looked in, then stepped into the middle of the floor and proclaimed, "My goodness; what a disgusting looking food! It looks like someone just spilled the pantry onto the floor, swept the mess onto some bread, and you idiots are paying to eat that!" The pizza lovers looked up in shock at the rudeness being displayed!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided it was time to repost this as the paid online shills are on overtime trying to shout enough abuse that anyone talking about the US Government's use of Nazi torture methods will shut up. It isn't working, of course. And abuse is all the CIA's supporters have, as they are trying to defend the indefensible.

Zero Dark Thirty wins ‘Albert Speer Oscar’ for Best Propaganda Film

It’s called “Hollywood history”, where the corporate studio machines in Los Angeles spend hundreds of millions of dollars in order to craft and precisely tailor historical events to suit the prevailing political paradigm.

‘Hollywood history’ is very much in fashion these days. From Lincoln to Dubya, and from Blackhawk Down to The Iron Lady, they constitute a significant portion of today’s major releases. That list keeps growing every year. There’s only one problem however, with tailoring a story to fit neatly into a prevailing political paradigm… and over the last 100 years, the Germans and the Soviets did this too – with devastating effect, but back then they just called it propaganda. These highly scripted narratives are what passes for official history these days.

CIA boss says 9/11 attacks justified CIA enhanced interrogations

CIA Director John Brennan recounted the horrors of the 9/11 attacks in defending his agency’s use of enhanced interrogations.

Mr. Brennan made the remarks in a rare press conference in the wake of a Senate report released earlier this week the outlined aggressive tactics used by CIA officers to extract information from suspected terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Brennon

Do you remember the Israelis arrested after being seen celebrating the collapsing Trade Center buildings? Do you remember that 3 of them were identified as Mossad agents?

Do you remember that just before 9-11, a massive Israeli spy ring, the largest foreign spy ring in US history was uncovered? Do you remember how Carl Cameron's four-part FOX News story on that Israeli spy ring included a quote from a US Government official that there was evidence linking those arrested Israeli spies to 9-11, but that this evidence was classified by the US Government?

Do you remember the Israelis stopped in New York on 9-11 whose truck tested positive for explosives?
Israelis stopped on 911 in New York with trucks showing signs of explosives?

Do you remember that every airplane used on 9-11 departed from an airport gate whose security was managed by an Israeli company?

Do you remember how Netanyahu stated that 9-11 was good for Israel?

do you recall Israel's long history of false-flag operations such as the Lavon affair and the attack on the USS Liberty?

So before you go any further with this bovine excrement about how 9-11 justified the torture of Muslims, tell us all how many Israelis were tortured to find the truth about 9-11?

Senate Torture Report Ignores CIA’s Most Brutal Crimes

On November 9, 2005, CIA Director of National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez, Jr. authorized the burning of 92 videotapes depicting the harsh interrogations of Abu Zubaydah and ’Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. In response to the destruction of those tapes, the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence voted to review the CIA’s Detention and Interrogation program on March 5, 2009. With access to over six million pages of CIA documents, the Committee merely provided a superficial summary without bothering to interview any participants or victims of the RDI program.

FALSE FLAG WARNING - Chicago A Top Terror Target; Ominous Tweet Connects ISIS Threat In City

Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now Washington DC is in a corner and desperate. The official confirmation of the use of torture on innocent victims has destroyed the moral authority of the United States. Foreign nations, who knew all along what was happening, but stayed silent for political reasons, are now free to vent their disdain openly.

DC needs a distraction. They need to refocus the public attention on war. They need, like Israel, to regain the victim status.

The defenders of the torture regime justify their actions on the basis of 9-11, and nothing would serve them better than a repeat right now in these last weeks before Christmas.

Hence, we are suddenly seeing all these stories about ISIS is already in America and ready to strike. FOX News ran a poll in which they reported 81% of Americans say ISIS will attack on US soil soon. No American actually knows what ISIS will do, outside of those US officials conducting this clandestine operation. But while prudent minds might balk at a new false-flag operation in a world where the public already distrusts the official story on anything, DC is desperate, and desperate animals take desperate chances!

Are Rush Limbaugh And Fox News Still Laughing About Torture?

Last spring, Palin appeared before an NRA convention crowd and laughed about how liberals supposedly coddle America's mortal adversaries. "Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," said Palin. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists," The NRA audience roared with approval, but even some conservative commentators who saw the tape of Palin's wisecrack took offense, upset that she had linked bodily torture with a Christian sacrament. ("It's disgusting.")

Palin, of course, hardly stands alone among conservative media commentators who have spent years not only downplaying the grievous practice of torture adopted by the Bush administration, but who have routinely made light of the cruel tactic previously banned by the United States.

The Role of 9/11 in Justifying Torture and War: The Criminalization of the US State Apparatus. Senate Report on CIA Torture is a Whitewash

The words “possible criminal actions” by CIA employees is used in the report.

The terms unethical and immoral are mentioned. The criminality of those who ordered these actions at the highest levels of government, however, is not acknowledged.

The actions directed against alleged jihadists are categorized as ineffective in the process of revealing intelligence. This in itself is a red herring. The objective of torture was not to reveal intelligence.

What of course is not acknowledged is that the alleged terrorists who were tortured were framed by the CIA.

A GALLERY OF FAKE DEAD BIN LADENS

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The defenders of the US use of torture continue to make the claim that torture led them to Osama bin Laden. This is yet another self-serving lie. The Pakistanis were actually the ones who raided that house, and only after it was over did the neighbors speculate that Osama bin Laden lived there, which is when the Obama administration stepped in to steal the "glory" for themselves, only to discover that it was not Osama in the house (who actually died of natural causes in December 2001), which is what prompted the sloppy fake photos to try to save face.

Michael Brown Star Witness Gets Government Job

Dorian Johnson, the star witness to the Michael Brown shooting and the man who was assisting Brown during the strong-arm robbery moments before Brown was killed, has been hired by the city of St. Louis.

According to STltoday.com, “Jeff Rainford, Mayor Francis Slay's chief of staff, has confirmed that Johnson was hired under a state grant through the city's Agency on Training and Employment, or SLATE.”

Meeting the low income eligibility requirements, the 22-year-old will be holding the temporary position and will be making about $8.50 an hour.

Johnson told media, falsely, that Brown had been shot from behind, and then shot while surrendering to police with his hands up. Johnson will not be charged in the strong-arm robbery of the store, authorities said.

CIA torture report 'full of crap,' says former VP Cheney

The CIA and several of its past leaders, along with former vice-president Dick Cheney, are stepping up a campaign to discredit a five-year U.S. Senate investigation into the CIA's harrowing interrogation practices after 9/11, concerned that the historical record may define them as torturers instead of patriots and expose them to legal action around the world.

When Police and Journalists Become “Media Partners”

Major news media consider the FSU shooting more or less a closed case. After all, journalists appear to have been spoon-fed a story that includes its own sort of “The End” moment. A madman with a gun showed up in a public place. Terrified witnesses were interviewed and their fearful testimony publicized. The shooter’s bizarre online statements were duly noted. Then, official pleas for “unity,” “strength,” and “healing” were unquestioningly parroted, and less than two days later the entire affair was capped off with a photo op candlelight vigil.

With the notion of a full scale, coordinated media production in mind, it should be unsurprising that law enforcement and news media now consider themselves to be “partners” in such a tragedy’s public presentation.

The One Man Jailed For CIA Torture Tried To Expose It

The Justice Department is unlikely to prosecute anyone connected to the brutal torture techniques outlined in a Senate report released on Tuesday, but the one man already sitting in jail in connection with the CIA's interrogation program tried to draw public attention to it.

In an interview with ABC News in 2007, former CIA agent John Kiriakou was one of the first to acknowledge the existence of the CIA's torture program. Federal authorities brought criminal charges against him in 2008 for revealing the name of a covert agent to a reporter. Kiriakou pleaded guilty to those charges in 2012 and is currently serving a 30-month federal prison sentence.

"I believe I was prosecuted not for what I did but for who I am: a CIA officer who said torture was wrong and ineffective and went against the grain," Kiriakou said last year. Federal authorities say Kirakou had caused a security breach by leaking the name of another agent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In light of the current revelations on CIA torture, this man should be fully pardoned and compensated for time spent in prison.

However, in the current political atmosphere, that will only happen when pigs fly.

U.S. PROTESTERS DEMAND: END SECRECY, RELEASE THE TEXTS ON TRANS-PACIFIC PARTNERSHIP

Cassidy Regan, trade organizer for Popular Resistance, remarked that after public pressure the European Union recently agreed to release its negotiating proposals for the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership to the public. The EU wanted to release the full text of the agreement but was blocked by the United States.

“The trade agreements being drafted in secret threaten everything from worker rights and wages to public health and access to medicines. The negotiators keep texts hidden because these agreements aren’t made with the public in mind — instead, they serve to give transnational corporations further power to exploit people and the planet for the sake of profit. The unprecedented lack of transparency denies communities’ right to know policies that could impact so many aspects of our lives, for generations to come.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the TPP is negotiated behind the backs of the American people, and with no transparency whatsoever, demonstrates, painfully clearly, that the US government is being run BY the Corporations; OF the Corporations; and FOR the Corporations.

Fox melts down after torture report: ‘The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome!’

Fox News analysts, hosts and reporters on Tuesday wasted no time in blasting Democrats after Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) released a report condemning the CIA’s use of torture and other enhanced interrogation techniques.

Just moments after Feinstein announced on the floor of the Senate that the Intelligence Committee had made the long-delayed torture report public, Fox News National Security Analyst K.T. McFarland insisted that Democrats were going to “do harm” to the country by angering terrorists.

McFarland, who said that torture techniques were both legal and justified by the horrific terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, argued that Democrats were only releasing the report for political reasons.

Waterboarding Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of 9/11, did not in fact “produce the intelligence that allowed us to get Osama bin Laden," as former Vice President Dick Cheney asserted in 2011. Those are among the central findings of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA interrogation and detention after 9/11.

The report’s executive summary is expected to be released Tuesday. After reviewing thousands of the CIA’s own documents, the committee has concluded that torture was ineffective as an intelligence-gathering technique. Torture produced little information of value, and what little it did produce could’ve been gained through humane, legal methods that uphold American ideals.

Alternative Media and the MH17 JIT Reversal

After weeks of protests and growing suspicion, Dutch authorities overseeing the investigation of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 have finally included Malaysia as a member of its Joint Investigation Team (JIT).

Malaysia had made it clear it was immensely displeased with its inexplicable exclusion from JIT formed after the downing of MH17 over eastern Ukraine. Including NATO members (Belgium and the Netherlands), a defacto NATO collaborator (Australia) and a potential culprit in the air disaster (Ukraine), Malaysia’s exclusion looked to be a part of an ongoing cover-up amid a larger attempt to use the disaster to frame Russia and advance NATO’s agenda in Eastern Europe.

Why You Should Question Everything

Throughout our history, on every level in any area of life there always has been some kind of manipulation aiming at achieving self-centered goals and often corrupting official systems. This behavior reflects the selfishness of human nature. It affects everyone without exception in every way. This is why we should always question everything we are told.

Sabrina Rubin Erdely Has Destroyed Rolling Stone’s Credibility

Rolling Stone recently published a shocking story titled “A Rape on Campus” written by Sabrina Rubin Erdely. The horrifying details of this narrative roused the nation. Feminists, social justice activists, and the mainstream media led a vicious and hysterical attack on the University of Virginia, fraternity men, and “rape culture.”

Recent reporting has cast the story in doubt. While reviewing the evidence below, please ask yourself the following question: “Can Rolling Stone’s malicious activism be tolerated?”

Cops mock Garner with #WeCanBreathe tweet

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department attracted scrutiny over the weekend for a tweet that seemed to mock Eric Garner, the black man killed by New York City police in July by means many, including protesters nationwide, have deemed excessive.

In response to criticism over arrests made during protests in Indianapolis over a grand jury’s decision not to indict a New York officer for Garner’s death, Kendale Adams, a public information officer with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD), tweeted Thursday evening from the IMPD’s Twitter feed “…communication with those involved was peaceful and appropriate but some opted for arrest by #choice, #WeCanBreathe.”

The hashtag #WeCanBreathe is a reference to Garner’s last words: Video of the incident shows that Garner said “I can’t breathe” 11 times as he was put into a chokehold by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo.

Required Reading: Prequels to the Torture Report

As early as tomorrow, the long-awaited Senate torture report will finally see the light of day. If all goes as planned, the Senate Intelligence Committee will release the roughly 500-page executive summary of its 6,000-page report concerning the CIA's "rendition, detention, and interrogation" program. The report is said to be highly critical of the program.

Former President Bush came out over the weekend to defend the CIA against the report's conclusions. That's not surprising, considering his own responsibility for the CIA's brutal policies.

Gangs of New York: Post-Garner NYPD on Watch for Militant Blacks ‘Preparing to Shoot On-Duty Police Officers’

While outrage continues to brew over the non-indictment of the officer that choked Eric Garner to death for selling “loose” untaxed cigarettes on the streets of New York, the NYPD is digging in, as the above New York Daily News image suggests.

Amid anti-police sentiments, the NYPD has claimed that members of the “Black Guerilla Family” are threatening to shoot on-duty police officers in New York. The group is known as an “ideological African-American Marxist revolutionary organization composed of prisoners” set up in the sixties, with inspiration from black leaders including Marcus Garvey.

The New York Daily News carried the exclusive, and included a photo of document with the typed warning:

The institute was co-founded in 1998 by Yigal Carmon, a former Israeli military intelligence officer and Meyrav Wurmser, an Israeli-born, American political scientist. MEMRI states that its goal is to “bridge the language gap between the Middle East and the West”.

Secretive Pro-Corporate Trade Deal Could Endanger Health, Labor, Environment

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is being sold as the world’s biggest trade agreement, with the potential to affect hundreds of millions of Americans and Europeans. So why is it being negotiated in near-total secrecy?

The pact has European food, labor and other advocates up in arms. They say the deal, known by its TTIP acronym, benefits corporations at the expense of the public.

Among the more grave potential consequences: environmental damage, reduced financial regulation, and the placement of corporate rights above those of sovereign nations.

Amid all the hush-hush, one fact stands out: a big place at the negotiating table has been reserved for lobbyists who represent multinational corporations. This has allowed them to argue against including in the final treaty a number of consumer-friendly regulations and standards.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Should this agreement come to fruition, you can bet on two things happening: it will be terrific for multinationals, and completely lousy for We the People.

Senator Jay Rockefeller singlehandedly kills Freedom of Information Act reform

The House unanimously passed a bill that would bring much-needed improvements to the Freedom of Information Act; the Senate had bi-partisan support for it, too -- but outgoing Sen Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) singlehandedly killed the bill in a closed-door committee meeting.

For 509 other members of Congress, these concerns were not enough to halt progress of much-needed reforms. It’s not clear which provisions the Senator is referring to, or what experts across the federal government he is referring to, because this short statement, issued at 6:30 PM on Friday after a full day of advocates, journalists and citizens asking for an explanation, doesn’t explain.

Incredibly, Bolton then said:

Of course, Bolton probably feels he doesn’t need to keep pace with the news, because if he did, he’d have noticed that his own government has recently made it ‘legal’ to aim its official version of reality at US citizens, thanks to the repeal of the Smith-Munt Act “anti-propaganda” law.

Ebola Czar Ron Klain to Return to Private Sector

After less than six months on the job, Ron Klain, the former White House adviser appointed by President Barack Obama to handle the nation's response to the threat of Ebola, will return to his private sector job in March.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Klain's mission was to get Ebola out of the media ahead of the mid-term elections. He succeeded. Seen any Ebola coverage in the corporate media lately, like the fact that there are currently 1400 patients under Ebola watch in the US?

When Big pharma has their new whiz-bang vaccines and treatments ready to sell next spring, they will WANT Ebola all over the news and that is why Klain is no longer needed.

Epic Fail: Jon Stewart Lies in Ferguson Skit, Gets Slammed by CA District Attorney

Comedian Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show, has made a living obsessing about why everyone else in media isn’t reporting “the truth”.

It turns out that Stewart has a lot to learn about reporting the truth.

In their bid to come up with new material each day, Stewart writers and producers will, more often than not, gravitate towards what they believe are the easiest targets to poke fun at, and will always take extra care to test the wind and make sure they are within the majority public opinion within their audience demographic on each single issue they turn into a skit. So it’s no surprise they would run with mainstream mythology regarding Ferguson and NYC – namely, that both incidents were racially motivated and then proceeded to flash up on screen the faces and names of ‘noteworthy’ black victims of police shootings in America.

James Perloff - Pearl Harbor: Roosevelt’s 9/11

When the Maine sank, the proactive Assistant Secretary of the Navy had been Teddy Roosevelt. After the 1898 Spanish-American War he became governor of New York, and by 1901 was President of the United States. When the Lusitania sank, the Assistant Secretary of the Navy was his distant cousin Franklin D. Roosevelt – who likewise went on to become governor of New York and then President.

Just as coincident: during the Lusitania affair, the head of the British Admiralty was yet another cousin of Franklin D. – Winston Churchill. And in a chilling déjà vu, as Pearl Harbor approached, these two men were now heads of their respective states.

President Roosevelt (FDR) provoked the attack, knew about it in advance and covered up his failure to warn the Hawaiian commanders.

FDR blinded the commanders at Pearl Harbor and set them up by -

The McCollum Memo: The Smoking Gun of Pearl Harbor

On October 7, 1940, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum of the Office of Naval Intelligence submitted a memo to Navy Captains Walter Anderson and Dudley Knox (whose endorsement is included in the following scans). Captains Anderson and Knox were two of President Roosevelt's most trusted military advisors.

The memo, scanned below, detailed an 8 step plan to provoke Japan into attacking the United States. President Roosevelt, over the course of 1941, implemented all 8 of the recommendations contained in the McCollum memo. Following the eighth provocation, Japan attacked. The public was told that it was a complete surprise, an "intelligence failure", and America entered World War Two.

Fall 1941: Pearl Harbor and The Wars of Corporate America

Myth: The US was forced to declare war on Japan after a totally unexpected Japanese attack on the American naval base in Hawaii on December 7, 1941. On account of Japan’s alliance with Nazi Germany, this aggression automatically brought the US into the war against Germany.

Reality: The Roosevelt administration had been eager for some time to wage war against Japan and sought to unleash such a war by means of the institution of an oil embargo and other provocations. Having deciphered Japanese codes, Washington knew a Japanese fleet was on its way to Pearl Harbor, but welcomed the attack since a Japanese aggression would make it possible to “sell” the war to the overwhelmingly anti-war American public.

Pearl Harbor: A Successful War Lie

British Prime Minister Winston Churchill’s fervent hope for years was that Japan would attack the United States. This would permit the United States (not legally, but politically) to fully enter the war in Europe, as its president wanted to do, as opposed to merely providing weaponry, as it had been doing. On April 28, 1941, Churchill wrote a secret directive to his war cabinet:

“It may be taken as almost certain that the entry of Japan into the war would be followed by the immediate entry of the United States on our side.”

On May 11, 1941, Robert Menzies, the prime minister of Australia, met with Roosevelt and found him “a little jealous” of Churchill’s place in the center of the war. While Roosevelt’s cabinet all wanted the United States to enter the war, Menzies found that Roosevelt,

Chicago Cops Use Stingray to Intercept Protester’s Conversations, Leaked Audio Reveals

An audio recording leaked by the hacktivist group Anonymous appears to prove that Chicago police used an IMSI catcher, commonly referred to as a Stingray, to intercept phone calls during an Eric Garner protest Thursday evening.

IMSI catchers, small devices that mimic cell phone towers, give police and government agencies the ability to capture people’s cellular data in real-time. The audio, posted to the official Anonymous Twitter account Friday, reveals a conversation between the CPIC, Chicago’s Homeland Security-run Fusion Center, and a police officer spying on an alleged protest leader.

If confirmed, the revelation once again shatters claims by police departments that Stingrays are only used to stop the most heinous of crimes.

Wall Street Moves to Put Taxpayers on the Hook for Derivatives Trades

Wall Street lobbyists are trying to secure taxpayer backing for many derivatives trades as part of budget talks to avert a government shutdown.

According to multiple Democratic sources, banks are pushing hard to include the controversial provision in funding legislation that would keep the government operating after Dec. 11. Top negotiators in the House are taking the derivatives provision seriously, and may include it in the final bill, the sources said.

The bank perks are not a traditional budget item. They would allow financial institutions to trade certain financial derivatives from subsidiaries that are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. — potentially putting taxpayers on the hook for losses caused by the risky contracts. Big Wall Street banks had typically traded derivatives from these FDIC-backed units, but the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law required them to move many of the transactions to other subsidiaries that are not insured by taxpayers.

Webmaster's Commentary:

And please remember: Congress no longer represents We the People; they represent Those, the Corporations. We the People have become irrelevant and expendable. That is why these idiots in Congress believe that they can get away with this crud.

Then, be pro-active. Do not have any more money in your bank than you need for paying bills. In fact, and even though it is more expensive, pay your bills with money orders if possible. There are many businesses which will still take cash, and it has not yet been made illegal to do so.

Make sure you have small amounts of gold and silver for barter. Because if Congress is about to pass legislation like this, the excrement is very near to hitting the ventilation shaft, and I mean really, really soon.

Ashton Carter is the typical Beltway apparatchik – profiting from the revolving door between the military, heavy industry and academia.

He was and remains a key actor in the ever evolving “policy” of demonization of Russia.

And I want them to be keenly aware of choices and decisions this government can make which can get the geopolitical objectives won through peaceful means.

Protests erupt in wake of chokehold death decision

Protesters are flooding the streets of New York and elsewhere -- chanting, blocking traffic and demanding change after the decision not to indict in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Demonstrators staged a "die-in" in Brooklyn, New York, late Thursday. They lay in the middle of Atlantic Avenue. An eerie silence descended as the protesters, who had cardboard coffins, stopped chanting.

The march was being led by three mothers, all of whom had lost a son to police. Protesters stopped other marchers from getting ahead of the women. They wanted them to walk in front.

"I'm so happy that people of all cultures, all ethnicities, came out to show their love and support, and basically we have to make a change because they're killing us off," a protester told CNN.
Garner video: What the grand jury saw

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, this verdict was an absolute travesty of justice, and needs to be addressed through the courts.

But we also need to have a national conversation about how police are trained in this country, with national standards on outlawing the excessive use of force in the process of arresting ANYONE.

Unfortunately, the "Israelification" of American police is not helping to moderate the situation.

As reported at rawstory.com in December of 2011:

The extreme militarization of American police forces has been brought to public attention by the tactics employed against Occupy protesters, which often appear more appropriate to counter-terrorism operations than to the control of non-violent protest. According to investigative journalist Max Blumenthal, however, the proper term for this ruthless suppression of dissent should be “Israelification.” In an article which begins with examples of American police training alongside Israeli security forces, Blumenthal writes, “Having been schooled in Israeli tactics perfected during a 63 year experience of controlling, dispossessing, and occupying an indigenous population, local police forces have adapted them to monitor Muslim and immigrant neighborhoods in US cities. Meanwhile, former Israeli military officers have been hired to spearhead security operations at American airports and suburban shopping malls, leading to a wave of disturbing incidents of racial profiling, intimidation, and FBI interrogations of innocent, unsuspecting people. The Israeli influence has been particularly strong in New York City where, Blumenthal writes, “under the leadership of Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, ties between the NYPD and Israel have deepened by the day. Kelly embarked on his first trip to Israel in early 2009 to demonstrate his support for Israel’s ongoing assault on the Gaza Strip. … Kelly returned to Israel the following year to speak at the Herziliya Conference, an annual gathering of neoconservative security and government officials who obsess over supposed ‘demographic threats.’ … Back in New York, the NYPD set up a secret ‘Demographics Unit’ designed to spy on and monitor Muslim communities around the city.” Not only dissidents but even ordinary criminals may be treated as terrorists under the Israel model, which can also include the routine use of torture. Karen Greenberg, director of Fordham School of Law’s Center on National Security, told Blumenthal, “After 9/11 we reached out to the Israelis on many fronts and one of those fronts was torture. The training in Iraq and Afghanistan on torture was Israeli training. There’s been a huge downside to taking our cue from the Israelis and now we’re going to spread that into the fabric of everyday American life? It’s counter-terrorism creep. And it’s exactly what you could have predicted would have happened.” .

This country does not need more techniques in torture, terror, or causing death to unarmed suspects; it needs a way to teach police how to de-escalate a situation, to the point where, if the suspect is unarmed, that no violence has to be used.

Otherwise, and I shudder to think of it, there will be more Fergusons, and more New Yorks, in terms of killing of unarmed, minority suspects.

We can stop this trend, but it will take enormous good will and hard work on the part of all police departments in this country, all community outreach volunteers, and the courts.

For the people of Syria and the wider region, America’s dirty war against their countries is much dirtier than you present it, and for the wars to be successfully pursued many in the administration, media, NGOs, academia, diplomatic corps must be complicit to some extent or other in order for there to be a very muted response to the wars.

Your book was published in 2013. Could you please explain why you have given no attention at all to the role of Robert Ford in Syria’s crisis? (He is not listed in the index at all.) There are two brief references to John Negroponte in your book, on pages 186 and 207. They are both relatively benign and forgettable, despite Negroponte’s being the US director of national intelligence and his earlier suspect diplomatic service in Honduras. One would expect him to figure largely in the US dirty war. Why is Negroponte almost invisible in your book?

Ferguson marchers met with gunfire, racial slurs, fried chicken, and a melon

A group of Ferguson protesters were met Thursday afternoon with Confederate flags, racist symbols, and gunfire as they marched through a pair of rural Missouri towns.

Counter-protesters, including children, shouted racial slurs and carried signs urging the marchers to “go home,” reported the Columbia Missourian.

Residents of Gerald and Rosebud, where the marchers arrived about noon, set up a display of fried chicken, a melon, and a 40-ounce beer bottle in the street.

Some of the counter-protesters wore improvised Ku Klux Klan hoods, and they set up homemade signs supporting law enforcement and the grand jury’s decision not to charge Darren Wilson in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Just In: See How Your Representative Voted on Bill for Obama to Send Weapons to Ukraine

It’s a bill authorizing Obama to supply weapons to the bankrupt Ukrainian Government to exterminate (and/or drive out into neighboring Russia) the people in the areas of Ukraine’s southeast that had voted 90% for the Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Obama overthrew in a bloody coup in February 2014; but, of course, that’s not how it’s worded.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government appears to be moving swiftly toward a war against Russia over Ukraine; at least, Ukraine is the "good reason", and not the real reason, which is stopping Russia's economic growth.

And to the 411 House Congressional representatives who voted for this, I would almost be willing to be real money that NONE of your sons or daughters are serving in the US military, either right now, or in the foreseeable future.

And I say this because, somewhere, in the data you have received about the US military's readiness, you have received information stating very clearly that the US military, at this point in its history, is not really capable of besting Russia militarily, in a conventional engagement.

And if, as just an ordinary civilian, I understand this, I am absolutely gobsmacked that you do do not.

I would like to remind you 411 that right now, the US military doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome in such an engagement; and that is what makes the military option against Russia so completely terrifying to consider.

Yes, the US government spends lavishly for its weapons. But what is it getting, really, in terms of value for the money spent?!?

Do I need to remind you folks about the "problem child" F-35?!? And unfortunately, that is just the tip of the iceberg regarding problems with US weaponry.

The Russians and Chinese have spent less on their weapons systems, but are getting some amazing results. As reported in October 2014 in the Russia & India report:

Moscow has an array of newer weapons rolling off the assembly lines to complement these Cold Warriors. The powerful strategic bombers will be escorted by the super-maneuverable Sukhoi-27 Flanker and the newest member of the Flanker family, the Su-35 Super Flanker. Able to carry an enormous variety and number of payload, the Su-35’s most potent weapons are a ramjet-powered version of the K-77 air-to-air missile and the Kh-59 land attack cruise missile. Both aircraft are nearly invisible to radar during super-maneuverable flight.

As to China's military in their weapons technological leap forward, as reported in the August 2014 edition of wantchinatimes.com:

The observation satellite Gaofen-2 launched Aug. 19 from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, is able to discern one-meter-long objects on the ground with high resolution in full color. Russia's latest observation satellite has a 30-centimeter detection rate while that of the leading power in the race, the US, reaches 12.7 centimeters. China's Aug. 19 satellite launch means that the country will be capable of building a powerful Earth detection system in space and thus enhance significantly its military strength. The one-meter detection rate may seem far less powerful than the Russian or American satellites, but it is sufficient for most military and economic detection missions, the report said. The Chinese military equipped with the facilities for analyzing the satellite detection data will make a big stride in its competition with US intelligence capability, said the report.

IT is very difficult for me to believe that you 411 voted for this bill, understanding, with sure and certain knowledge, that you just voted for war against Russia; and yet, that was precisely what you did.

Banks love war, because all sides have to go into debt to finance it; the military industrial and intelligence industrial complex love war, because war brings money.

But what does such a war bring to the American people?!?

Absolutely nothing but devastation; bigger graveyards; and grief for the fallen,and those who have been maimed for life, all in the pursuit of private corporate profit.

I have to wonder just how many defense stocks you all hold,(and what the major defense companies contribute to your campaigns), and how you excited you're going to get when those stocks through the roof, when war comes; and that makes you 411 members of Congress who voted through this bill the real war criminals.

Obama Administration Double-Counted Healthcare Enrollees to Meet Goal

With so much riding on the success of the Affordable Care Act, officials in the Obama administration felt it necessary to inflate the number of Americans who had signed up for health insurance.

They tried pulling off this statistical sleight of hand by combining the number of people who had purchased dental coverage on the healthcare exchanges with those buying health insurance.

Somehow, the officials didn’t think anyone would notice … despite the fact they had previously reported the dental and medical totals separately.

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which oversees CMS, had to backtrack and admit that officials “erroneously” folded sign-ups for the two different plans together. “A mistake was made,” a spokesperson for HHS said in a statement, adding that, in fact, 6.7 million Americans had purchased medical coverage as of October 15.

Black Cop Kills Unarmed White Youth — Media and Feds Silent

While Ferguson, Missouri, burns with racism and rioting, misinformation and mayhem over the Michael Brown shooting, another American city is also grappling with the death of an unarmed young man at the hands of police. The incident occurred just two days after the Ferguson event, but, unlike in that case, where a white cop shot a black youth, in this instance the races are reversed. Unlike in Ferguson, there is no allegation that the young man attacked the officer. And there is another difference:

The national media, Attorney General Holder, and Barack Obama are silent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real problem is police brutality against all Americans, and we should all of us, regardless of color, be united against a brutal government. But the government is trying to turn this into a race issue, to divide us against ourselves, to keep us under control.

Gov’t and ISP’s Master Plan for Throttling Online News Sites

In any forward operating theater of any war, the first battle to be waged is for the control of information, and hence, the US and other government have contingencies in place to block or obscure online news sources by way of regional internet hubs.

The idea is simple: keep citizens from seeing any alternative reporting or analysis in times of crisis or domestic strife, and to reinforce the corporate monopoly of information and commentary by state-sanctioned, or ‘trusted news sources’ only, namely, ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX News, MSNBC and CNN.

A number of top alternative news site (including this one) have noticed that our website has been offline in certain regions at certain times. Others have noticed, and documented, the same observations.

New York Times propagandists exposed: Finally, the truth about Ukraine and Putin emerges

It has been a long and lonely winter defending the true version of events in Ukraine, but here comes the sun. We now have open acknowledgment in high places that Washington is indeed responsible for this mess, the prime mover, the “aggressor,” and finally this term is applied where it belongs. NATO, once again, is revealed as causing vastly more trouble than it has ever prevented.

Washington, it is now openly stated, has been wrong, wrong, wrong all along. The commentaries to be noted do not take on the media, but I will, and in language I use advisedly. With a few exceptions they are proven liars, liars, liars — not only conveying the official version of events but willfully elaborating on it off their own bats.

Red Cross exposed as scam in searing investigation published by ProPublica

A pair of massive, once-in-a-generation storms lambasted regions of the U.S., leaving in their wake destruction, some death and havoc. Hundreds of thousands of people were without food, shelter and power, many for weeks on end.

But Americans responded like they always do after such disasters, whether they occur on home soil or abroad: They opened up their pocketbooks and donated to charities ostensibly aimed at helping victims.

In particular, according to a recent investigative report by ProPublica and National Public Radio, Americans sent the Red Cross hundreds of millions of dollars because they believed that their donations would be well used to relieve the suffering of victims pounded by Superstorm Sandy and Hurricane Isaac.

It didn't happen. Per the report:

Peter King says Eric Garner would not have died from chokehold were he not 'so obese'

Rep. Peter King defended a New York City grand jury decision not to indict Daniel Pantaleo, a white NYPD officer, in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, during an arrest on Staten Island in July.

"You had a 350-pound person who was resisting arrest," King told CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "The police were trying to bring him down as quickly as possible. If he had not had asthma and a heart condition and was so obese, almost definitely he would not have died from this."

It is truly impressive how the force of false media can control public perception. Sandy Hook is a good example. When you think about all these staged events, orchestrated by intelligence agencies, with crisis actors and the outrageous numbers of people who must be involved for this to take place and who have obviously sold their souls for money or are kept in silence by fear... it boggles the mind that it can even happen but it does; The Bombing of the Boston Marathon, obviously a government op, all those staged shootings elsewhere. Then there's the phony shooting in Ottawa and that bizarre fabrication in Woolwich. Nothing else besides being a willing automaton for the forces of darkness makes sense and then? There's all the evidence of exactly that.

The Beautiful Death of CNN

It had 24 hours per day coverage of this heinous war crime and I admit I was glued to my TV. Something about their coverage struck me as rather staged... like it was a movie. But since it was all new to me I watched it for days on end as they reported every terrorist attack by the US government and the "coalition".

Little did I know that most of it was actually totally staged. The most hilarious of their faked, bluescreen reports was caught here with Charles Jaco:

But, back then, there was no internet and there was no way for people to expose these things. They had total control of the public's perceptions.

Today, however, thanks to the internet, nearly everybody realizes that media like CNN is almost complete propaganda and often faked.

Exclusive: FBI warns of 'destructive' malware in wake of Sony attack

The Federal Bureau of Investigation warned U.S. businesses that hackers have used malicious software to launch a destructive cyberattack in the United States, following a devastating breach last week at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Cybersecurity experts said the malicious software described in the alert appeared to describe the one that affected Sony, which would mark first major destructive cyber attack waged against a company on U.S. soil. Such attacks have been launched in Asia and the Middle East, but none have been reported in the United States. The FBI report did not say how many companies had been victims of destructive attacks.

"I believe the coordinated cyberattack with destructive payloads against a corporation in the U.S. represents a watershed event," said Tom Kellermann, chief cybersecurity officer with security software maker Trend Micro Inc. "Geopolitics now serve as harbingers for destructive cyberattacks."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What possible motive, other than garnering headlines, does an attack that damages the computers at SONY serve?

ISIS built radiological 'dirty' bomb in Iraq: Intelligence reports

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorists fighting Iraq's government forces and the Kurds living in the northern part of the country claim they successfully built a powerful “dirty bomb” using the 40 kilograms of uranium that they acquired while plundering a university campus in Iraq, according to reports on Tuesday. The deadly and ruthless Islamist group is believed to have made good on their threats since June when they produced the IED (improvised explosive device) using the highly radioactive uranium they stole from Iraq’s Mosul University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More "Wag the ISIS" propaganda. This story is all over the corporate media, however Russia Today is honest enough to report that the described dirty bomb is not that much more destructive than the same bomb without the uranium. Most would remain at the blast site. The value of a "dirty bomb" is that it sounds scary. Assuming that the uranium is in powdered form, such as uranium oxide (easy to smuggle by claiming it is paint pigment, which it was once actually used for) it would be far more effective to simply scatter it from an airplane high over a city where the populace would not know they had been contaminated until it was too late.

But we know that the US/EU/NATO are desperate to regain public support for the war agenda, and may be willing to risk another false-flag hoax like 9-11 even in the face of a population deeply skeptical of any official story and already aware that 9-11 itself was a hoax. This may be part of the propaganda campaign to put the public in the "proper mood" to fall for a new hoax.

Cops Work for Corporate America as Oppressive Mercenaries for the 1% Says Retired Police Captain

Retired Philadelphia Police Captain, Ray Lewis, has a message for America. In a recent interview, Lewis makes it known that gone are the days of the police working for the people.

According to Lewis,

“It’s an oppressive organization now controlled by the one percent of corporate America. Corporate America is using police forces as their mercenaries.”

Lewis gained notoriety when he crossed the blue line and came out to demonstrate in full uniform at the Occupy Wall St. protests and was arrested along with hundreds of others.

Lewis has called out law enforcement on their overly aggressive tactics saying,

“You should, by law, only use force to protect someone’s life or to protect them from being bodily injured. If you’re not protecting somebody’s life or protecting them from bodily injury, there’s no need to use force.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While I understand completely what this man is saying, the situation in Ferguson, with the ruling which absolved the police officer of murder, has been made deliberately...murky, and appears to be very politically motivated.

I have noticed a number of people not actually from Ferguson, who are demonstrating, are getting celebrated by the media, and appear to hope to get national riots going in other flashpoint cities, like Detroit or Chicago, where many innocent minorities are literally afraid to go out, because they may be racially profiled, or have to contend with with police brutality.

The problems in Ferguson are, unfortunately, not unique to Ferguson, and are American problems, which can only be resolved by people coming together peacefully, and working things out between leaders in the general community, and leaders in the police department.

But, one has to think: cui bono?!? Who benefits from national riots which only the American military can put down, and with extreme prejudice?!?

I have a suggestion of who thinks he will benefit from such actions: Our "El Supremo Decider", Obama, who at that point, could suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and mandate martial law.

And, please, don't for a moment think he would not LOVE to silence his critics by doing this; there is an underground stream of viciousness and retribution in this man's soul which runs deep, and knows no bounds, except where the rule of law constrains him.

He cannot abide even the slightest of criticisms, and refuses all responsibility when he has been in horrific errors of judgement.

I mean, using an Executive Order to do an end run around Congress on immigration?!? Through that action, Obama has declared that his only emotion for the laws of this land are those of complete contempt.

In the six months since Thailand's military coup, the United States has exported tens of millions of dollars' worth of military equipment to the unelected government there

In the six months since Thailand's military coup, the United States has exported tens of millions of dollars' worth of military equipment to the unelected government there. This finding is based on a new analysis of US Census Bureau export data conducted by Truthout.

The records, which run through September, show that since the May 22, 2014, coup, the United States has delivered $11 million in parts for military aircraft, more than $1 million in parts for guided missiles and three UH-60 Blackhawk helicopters worth more than $40 million.

The Thai military government, which calls itself the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), has mandated widespread censorship on television, radio, in print and in social media. It has also outlawed criticism of the military authorities, as well as gatherings of more than five people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And just WHY would the US government support a military dictatorship in Thailand?!? For the same bloody reasons it supports such governments all over the world: stability (at the cost of democracy) and US profits.

Please remember the following, as reported in an article published by Mount Holyoke College:

"The Department of Labor indicates that 50% of garment factories in the U.S. violate two or more basic labor laws, establishing them as sweatshops. Sweatshops exist wherever there is an opportunity to exploit workers who lack the knowledge and resources to stand up for themselves. Typical sweatshop employees, ninety percent of whom are women, are young and uneducated. Many of them are recent or undocumented immigrants who are unaware of their legal rights. Young women throughout the world are subject to horrible working conditions and innumerable injustices because corporations, many of which are U.S.-owned, can get away with it."

And as reported at globalethicsnetwork.org last May:

One of the biggest hallmarks of sweatshop labor is that the workers are simply underpaid, especially considering the kinds of working conditions they endure. Minimum wage levels in countries such as Thailand, the Philippines, and China, are significantly lower than that of the United States. The federal minimum wage per hour in the United States is currently at 7.25 dollars, while it is 1.48 dollars in Thailand, 69 cents in the Philippines, and 67 cents in China. However, workers are frequently paid less than these estimates suggest—amounts barely enough to survive on even considering the lower cost of living in these regions.

And ladies, BEFORE you buy any kind of a garment from the after Christmas sales, please look at the tag, and note the country of origin.

Because if we can, finally, buy "fair trade organic coffee", where the people who nurture the plants to maturity and harvest, get some more money for their labor, we should be able to buy "fair trade garments", where the people who do the hardest labor get reasonably rewarded.

BEX ALERT - EXCLUSIVE: Al Qaeda plot to blow up 5 passenger planes in Christmas 'spectacular'

The threat has been taken so seriously it came close to leading to an outright ban on all hand luggage, a senior insider has revealed.

Mobile phones and electronic devices could still be banned from plane cabins, with the threat of a 9/11-style coordinated attack on London and other major cities feared imminent.

The warning comes as Whitehall officials admit that a terror strike on the UK is now "almost inevitable" particularly with British jihadis returning from fighting alongside the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

An airport security source told the Sunday Express: "We've been told that five planes are being targeted in a high profile hit before Christmas. They've been waiting for the big one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, first off, this is not an exclusive story because FOX News was running it yesterday.

So let me see if I have this right. The government knows Al Qaeda is going to do something. They know what they are going to do and when they are going to do it. That seems pretty specific to me for a government that implies they cannot find the people about to carry out the plan. This does not pass the smell test at all.

However, we should be on the alert for a new false-flag attack (note the reference to 9-11 in the above article) as the US and Europe are desperate to crank up World War 3 for real before the BRICS banking system goes online in 2015, after which the doom of the western private central banks will be sealed.

The US and EU know full well that their people are sick and tired of wars and wartime economies, and hope something spectacular will reignite the war fever in the populace.

Who stands to gain from 5 passenger jets exploding? Who gets what they want?

Zionism And ISIS: Opposing Forces Or Two Sides Of The Same Coin?

Over the past decade, the Middle East — the cradle of civilization and the birthplace of the three major monotheistic religions — has become a flashpoint for religious extremism and fascism. The general public has grown used to associating radicalism with Islam, even to such an extent that the general notion is that the Islamic faith is the expression of religious extremism par excellence.

Yet such assessments have generally failed to take into account an equally dangerous radical trend that has been unfolding in the region for decades — Zionism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I remember, as a kid, watching Khrushchev at the UN, banging his shoe on the table, and the translation of what he was saying was given as, "We will bury you!", which was construed by the "translator" as a threat against the US.

Of course, that was a complete mistranslation, and misrepresentation of what the man actually said. The real translation was "You will bury yourselves."

I think of those Jews, many of whom had escaped death during the Holocaust, who founded Israel.

And I have to wonder: is what Israel has become what they really wanted to see evolve?!?

A viciously apartheid, xenophobic culture, hating Muslim Arabs so intensely that many in government and Jewish faith communities have, sometimes very publicly, advocated their own, "Final Solution" to "The Arab Problem"?!?

There is a term in psychology called "enabling". It is when someone encourages someone else to do something that is bad and risky for that person, but -for their own reasons - continues to encourage this bad behaviour.

When one nation enables another nation's bad behaviour on the world stage, as the US does with Israel, the ultimate outcome cannot be good. And the US has done absolutely nothing to ameliorate the Israeli government's continuous onslaught against the Palestinians. Please note the following, from the Latimes.com, published on 24 July, 2014:

It was supposed to be a place of refuge from a devastating war. Hundreds of people were crammed into a United Nations-run elementary school in the northern Gaza Strip on Thursday when the converted shelter was hit by a series of explosions. At least 15 people were killed and more than 120 injured, according to local health officials. Survivors said they had packed their belongings and were gathered in the schoolyard awaiting evacuation when the shells hit. But the circumstances remained murky late in the day. The U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees said it had asked the Israeli liaison office repeatedly for a window of time in which to evacuate the staff and displaced people who wanted to leave the school. “We got no answer,” said Adnan abu Hasna, a spokesman for the U.N. Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. Survivors said they were waiting to leave when the shells hit.

These actions, coupled with brisk annexations of territories in which Palestinians have lived for generations; the routine torture of prisoners, including children;the daily killing of Palestinians in peaceful protest all lead to one inevitable conclusion: that Israel, as a country, is hell-bent on a complete genocide of all Palestinians, and a complete reconquering of the land, to, at last, create "Eretz Israel", or "Greater Israel."

I would strongly caution both the Israeli government, and certain religious leaders to be very, very careful about what they wish for here.

A physical victory in this regard may well lead to a moral, and spiritual curse upon this nation so intense that it can never, ever be unbroken.

Dr Karl, ‘Please Explain’ Building 7

I heard Dr Karl Kruszelnicki on Sunday morning on ABC’s Weekend Breakfast show being interviewed by Andrew Geoghegan – and in typical ABC style denigrating those who challenge the official 9/11 theory.

They were covering various topics with a neuroscientist and skeptic and were talking about analytical thinking, when they moved to a discussion of 9/11 conspiracy theorists. To paraphrase: They as scientists have critical and skeptical thinking on their side, but the 9/11 conspiracy theorists are wrong – finding a theory to fit their belief system (that government was somehow involved). Celebrity scientist Karl agreed. What a joke! They are themselves guilty of fitting the facts and science into their belief system – and have thrown critical thinking out the window.

1940: NY TIMES REVEALS WHY GERMANY INVADED BELGIUM & THE NETHERLANDS

The hysterical headlines of the West's major newspapers rush to condemn Germany's aggression, and today's history books portray the event as ultimate evidence that Hitler had been lying all along about not wanting to fight a war with the Western powers. Lost in the history books is the fact that Germany believed that it had no choice but to invade because Belgium and Holland were plotting with the Allies, while claiming to be neutral.

Even amidst its anti-German hysteria, The New York Times, in an effort to appear "objective", did indeed publish "Germany's side of the story", in the form of statements issued by German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop. It is an account that you will neither find in contemporary history books, nor hear on a TV crockumentary.

Over Kill: Aiming for Two Militant Leaders in Pakistan, U.S. Drone Pilots Killed 233 People, including 89 Children

The U.S. drone program in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen is referred to as “targeted killing” of those deemed to be a danger to American interests. President Barack Obama even said in a speech on May 23, 2013, “[B]y narrowly targeting our action against those who want to kill us, and not the people they hide among, we are choosing the course of action least likely to result in the loss of innocent life.” Instead, the Central Intelligence Agency attacks are anything but targeted; hundreds often die in the multiple attempts to kill each individual.

A study (pdf) by Reprieve, a group that works against the death penalty and other government killing, showed that not only are many innocent lives lost in the attacks, but the actual targets are often missed. That can result in some being “killed” multiple times. Reprieve found 41 men whose deaths had been reported multiple times but remained alive while as many as 1,147 civilians in the kill zone died.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question thinking Americans must ask right now is, how do alleged "radicals" become radicalized against the US and the West?!?

Is it because there is some degree of transparency in their government, and votes actually count during elections?

Is it because people can work for decent wages, and are able to take care of their families, which have the advantage of low-cost, world-class medical care and a competitive education which can give that country a real, tangible edge in future generations?

I would strongly suggest, not at all.

When people are trapped with a US-imposed tinpot dictator, who has some material or geostrategic advantage to offer, and understands that the US will provide any means necessary to suppress even peaceful protest, people get angry at the US.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is a perfect case in point. Bahrain, home to the US Navy's 5th fleet, is ruled by the Sunni Al-Khalifa monarchy, but the majority of Bahrain's people are Shiite Muslim.

When there were peaceful demonstrations a couple of years ago, where Bahrain's people were asking for a move toward a Constitutional monarchy, not only were they attacked, arrested,tortured, and jailed, after a kangaroo court hearing; the first responders who gave them medical aid were also attacked, arrested,tortured, and jailed after a kangaroo court hearing.

To say that the people of Bahrain are not particularly happy with their government, and profoundly unhappy with the US government for supporting it, is like saying the Titanic hit a little ice.

And IF a true revolution comes to this country which cannot be put down by either the Bahraini or Saudi military, I will be willing to bet you that executives of the US State Department, the Pentagon, Congress, and the White House will collectively have that glazed "deer in the headlights" look, claiming they never saw it coming.

President Kennedy said it best: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

As a Christian pacifist, I abhor violence, and would never advocate its use; I can understand, however, how violence becomes the ultimate, collective response to how people are brutally treated by a leadership more interested in US "foreign aid" ( read: bribery to keep the people "in their place"), and which generally never gets to the people who desperately need it, (as in the case with Yemen), than with improving the lot of their citizens. The citizens of Yemen are not happy, particularly in light of the fact that that US drone attacks are killing innocent men, women, children, and the medically fragile in their country.

These slaughtered innocents have names; they have families and friends who loved them.

And if some of these people were at the end of their collective rope, and became radicalized, it is the US foreign policy of supporting despots against their own people, while butchering the innocent, which has put them there. I cannot, morally, support a US foreign policy which does this.

And the most painful irony here, is that this is a foreign policy approach which is ultimately doomed to fail. You may want to ask the citizens of Cuba, Chile, or Iran about that, if you have the guts to do so.

To get what they want economically and geopolitically, the Chinese and Russian leadership are making deals; to get what the US government wants, it is waging wars, which appear to be on the verge of some massive and brutal escalation across the globe.

What is wrong with this picture?!? BLOODY EVERYTHING!!

Gill Rosenberg, Canadian citizen, may have been captured by ISIS

"She's originally from White Rock, British Columbia," CBC's Briar Stewart reported from London today. "She went to the British Columbia Institute of Technology, where she studied aviation.

"In 2006 she immigrated to Israel, where she later worked as a pilot with the army search and rescue unit.

"In 2009 … she was extradited to the United States, where she served time in prison for her part of an international phone scam. Now, after serving her time — it was just more than three years — she then went back to the Middle East, and obviously this fall she travelled … to Iraq to train with Kurdish fighters."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But the CBC is pushing the fact that she is a Canadian woman, to serve the war agenda! Yet this article says she became an Israeli citizen, has a criminal record, and wanted to fight with the Kurds. This reeks of another setup to push the war propaganda.

Individual donors like Goldman CEO Lloyd Blankfein have been generous, but the firm has sought to purchase influence and good will through more oblique channels: speaking fees as well as contributions to the nonprofit Clinton Foundation.

Of course, Goldman is not alone. Citigroup ranks No. 1 in lifetime donations to Clinton; Morgan Stanley is No. 6 and employs Clinton confidant Tom Nides.

Wall Streeters are ready for Hillary.? And after the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision, it will be increasingly difficult to track their influence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under a Hillary Clinton presidency, everything one may despise in the Obama administration will continue, but on steroids.

There will be no governmental responsibility whatsoever; at the end of the day, she is simply another slave to her corporate and Israeli masters.

Message will have absolutely no relationship to reality; the wars will continue, potentially leading us to war with Russia; the destruction of the American Middle Class will have become complete; US "education" will continue to become more third world; torture of prisoners of war will be routine; the bankers will fatten their purses, and this country's leadership will become even more brutal toward its own citizens in ways you cannot begin to imagine.

In fact, the potential ugly reality here should be expressed in the following bumper sticker: "Hillary Clinton: she'll do for America...what she did for Benghazi!!"

Folks, just please: look at her record, going back to her law school days, and her employment shortly after that. And how various jobs ended. Understand that the woman has the morals of a trout. (Yes, I know I'll get emails from trout who are insulted by that, but it's a fact.)

And the problem here for me is, a Clinton candidacy is, allegedly, the best the Democratic Party can conjure. And the Republicans, particularly is Jeb wins the nomination, can seem to do no better for We the People.

It appears to be only a matter of time, and timing, before all the reasons I have articulated as to why I would be morally unable to vote for Clinton, come to pass; but they will also come to pass if the best the Republicans can do is to nominate Jeb Bush.

As of yet, I fail to see a potential candidate for President coming out of either party. And that is truly ....unfortunate for American's voters.

Jeb Bush’s Four Mysterious Companies Share The Same Address And Have Never Done Any Known Business

Jeb Bush and his capital investment company have set up several companies that, despite being registered to his office and being approved for “any and all lawful business,” have seemingly not yet done anything. A ThinkProgress review of corporate registration records with the Florida Department of State revealed several companies registered in Bush’s name but little additional information.

In addition to his lengthy and troubled history as a business consultant and corporate board member, in recent years former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) has ventured into a new territory: capital investment. Since 2008, he and his partners have registered a lengthy array of secretive companies with the state of Florida.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope the continued scrutiny here pays off before the 2016 elections, to find out just how these companies have been engineered to contribute to the Bush family's economic dynasty.

Fake Michael Brown case pathologist: ‘If they want to think I’m a doctor, that’s their issue’

The man who assisted in slain teenager Michael Brown’ autopsy, then went on to become something of a media sensation, is now facing serious questions about his qualifications, work history and claims that he is a pathologist at all.

According to CNN, “professor” Shawn Parcells has made multiple false statements about his education and career. He has claimed to hold jobs that he has never held and to have earned academic degrees that he never earned.

Malaysia excluded from MH17 probe – for 'not pointing fingers at Russia'?

The country that owned the shot down MH17 jet, which was carrying a number of Malaysian citizens and was flown by a Malaysian crew, has been excluded from the criminal investigation due to its political neutrality, the nation's media reported.

Malaysia has been left out of the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), which has been tasked with learning more about the details of the tragedy which took place over Ukraine in July. This is despite the Dutch prime minister stating the importance of Malaysia's cooperation during a visit to the country this month. The JIT includes the Netherlands, Belgium, Ukraine, and Australia.

Thanksgiving attack: Syrian hackers strike U.S. media websites

American,Canadian and European news organizations claimed on Thanksgiving Day that their websites were hacked by a group identifying themselves as the Syrian Electronic Army (SEA), a cyber-terrorist group that is allied with Syria's Assad regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The hacks accomplished nothing but to attract attention, meaning this is a propaganda operation. And just because they claim to be Syrian doesn't mean they are. The hackers could easily be NSA or Mossad pushing the war on Syria propaganda.

Bell employees planted glowing online reviews of new Bell app

As soon as Bell Canada launched a new version of a phone app last week, the response online was electric; it quickly garnered glowing, five-star reviews on Apple's iTunes App Store.

CBC News has learned that some of those rave reviews were planted. Possibly half a dozen or more were written by Bell Canada employees – many in senior positions – none of whom disclosed their affiliation with the company.

Ferguson protesters target Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade: Activists plan to stop New York extravaganza

Demonstrators in New York who have been protesting the grand jury decision in Ferguson this week are plotting a revolt against the Thanksgiving Day Parade to 'make people stop and listen' and 'make history'.

The hashtag #StopTheParade set social media on fire on Wednesday night, after thousands took over the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn on Tuesday after police officer Darren Wilson escaped charges over the shooting death of Michael Brown.

The New York Post is reporting that those protests - in which 10 of an estimated 3,000 were arrested - have inspired a bigger plan to use the spotlight surrounding the parade to push what they say is injustice.

What the Media Isn’t Telling You About Ferguson

Whereas the hundreds of cases of egregious police brutality directed against people of all colors every year are routinely ignored or forgotten by the mainstream media and political leaders, the race baiters only ever direct African-Americans to get excited about ambiguous or outright justifiable cases like Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown.

This misdirection succeeds in fooling activists into rallying behind lost causes, while convincing the majority of Americans that people who complain about police brutality are ignorant, stupid, bias and even violent.

This is the one true narrative that the mainstream media won’t tell you about in advance of expected further unrest in Ferguson and other major American cities in the days and weeks to follow.
