BEX ALERT:Smoked dry: Massive marijuana cultivation has ‘lethal’ impact on California water supply – study

Reefer Madness is alive and well.

California's current drought has been caused by the demand for water needed to cultivate cannabis, which, under state law, is illegal for recreational use. Streams are running dry, fish are dying, and it’s just the beginning, US scientists warn.

The scientists, who studied the devastating environmental effects of marijuana cultivation in the region, concluded: “Due to climate change, water scarcity and habitat degradation in northern California is likely to worsen in the future.”

The U.S. Is Now Putting Bounties On The Heads of Hackers

SM Gibson

Russian hacker Evgeniy Bogachev was indicted ten months ago in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on multiple federal charges relating to cyber criminal activity. The only problem is that the Department of Justice has no idea where he is.

Since then, the DOJ has employed an age-old technique that they are hoping will entice someone to turn in the 31-year-old to US authorities. They have placed a hefty bounty on his head...

French could try to stall Iran deal: Former US congressional staffer

The French who are being influenced by Israel could try to stall nuclear talks underway between the P5+1 and Iran in Switzerland, an activist and radio host in California says.

“It’s clear that there is going to be an agreement worked out. [But] I think all eyes should be on the French at this point. I think the French are being heavily influenced by the Zionist Jews out of Tel Aviv. They’re making some statements that are incredibly problematic,” said Rodney Martin, a former US congressional staffer.

“And I think the French are the only one that could stall the talks or stall a potential agreement,” said Martin, the chairman of the All Nationalist Association, and a host on the All Nationalist Network, the Association’s internet radio station.

IRS Scandal Deja Vu: Hillary Clinton's Email Server "Wiped Clean"

If, as one claims, one is innocent of i) using a personal email account to send out confidential information and/or to take advantage of one's political position to abuse opponents and ii) deleting said confidential emails against government regulations, what would one do when faced with a government subpoena demand? If one is the IRS' Lois Lerner, one would claim, against subsequently revealed facts, that a hardware error led to a permanent loss of all demanded emails, even though by email protocol definition, said emails are always stored on at least one off-site server. Or, if one is Hillary Clinton, one would just format the entire server.

BEX Alert - "‘Iran wants to conquer MidEast’: Israeli PM slams prospect of nuclear deal"

The possible signing of a deal on Iran’s controversial nuclear program is “dangerous” as it may be the only thing Tehran lacks to establish control over the whole of the Middle East, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu says.

Iran’s nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, which entered the final stage before the March 31 deadline, have confirmed “our concerns and even worse," Netanyahu told Israeli public radio.

According to the recently re-elected right-wing prime minister, the "’Iran-Lausanne-Yemen axis" poses a threat to all of humanity and must be stopped.”

The nuclear deal, combined with the control Tehran already has over governments in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon, could allow Iran to “conquer” the Middle East, Netanyahu declared.

IT Independence is National Security

Ulson Gunnar
Activist Post

The NSA’s “Equation Group” is apparently behind the infection with malware of hard drive firmware on computers used by nations considered “enemies” by the United States. The installation of the malware is believed to have required access to trade secrets of IT manufacturers as well as physical access to the soon-to-be infected computers.

Popular Science in their article "The World’s Most Sophisticated Malware Ever Infects Hard Drive Firmware" suggests that the NSA intercepted computers in transit through global logistical chains.

However, a simpler and more logical explanation remains, though it is one manufacturers vehemently deny; that the NSA had/has direct access to the factory floors of several IT giants. These include Western Digital Corporation, Seagate Technology, Toshiba Corporation, IBM, Micron Technology and Samsung Electronics...

Its air attacks on Yemen are a historic and potentially fatal blow to the Kingdom and to the Middle East.

The real “story” is more important. Perhaps half of the Saudi army is of Yemeni tribal origin. Saudi soldiers are intimately – through their own families – involved in Yemen, and the Yemen revolution is a stab in the guts of the Saudi royal family.

Her arrogance (or else stupidity) in having wiped clean the hard drive of the private server she had used for her emails while she was the U.S. Secretary of State adds insult to the injury already done to her incipient campaign by the earlier revelation that she had evaded the State Department’s record-keeping system and had used her private server for all of her State Department emails and not only for her personal emails.

For G.O.P., Support for Israel Becomes New Litmus Test

When former Secretary of State James A. Baker III accused Israel’s leader this week of undermining the chances of peace in the region, he said nothing more than the kinds of things he had said at times when he was in office a quarter-century ago.

But the instant backlash from fellow Republicans that prompted Jeb Bush, the son of Mr. Baker’s best friend, to distance himself underscored just how much their party has changed on the issue of Israel. Where past Republican leaders had their disagreements with Israel, today’s Republicans have made support for the Jewish state an inviolable litmus test for anyone aspiring to national office.

Fifty police officers across the UK have been arrested as part of a crackdown on suspected paedophiles who pay to access child pornography websites, detectives revealed today.

The officers were among 1,300 people arrested on suspicion of accessing or downloading indecent images of children - some as young as five - from US-based Internet sites.

Thirty-five men were arrested in London this morning as part of the investigation - codenamed Operation Ore - following raids on 45 addresses across the capital.

Of the 50 policemen identified, eight have been charged to date and the remainder bailed pending further inquiries.

World War II myths fuel Western crimes

Freshman US Senator Tom Cotton already has two claims to fame. First he wrote a letter to Iran in an effort to sabotage his own President’s diplomatic efforts and start a war. And then he set an all-time record by invoking Hitler in less than one minute during his first Senate speech.

Sen. Cotton thus stands condemned under Godwin’s Law, which states that whoever mentions Hitler first automatically loses the debate. “Playing the Hitler card” is widely reviled. Yet people like Cotton cannot resist the temptation.

Why has the demonization of Hitler—and of anybody one wants to demonize through comparisons to Hitler—become such a massively overused, utterly shopworn cliché?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because the image of Hitler props up Israel politically, and loyal servants to Israel shall use Hitler and the Nazis and the Holocaust at all times!

Wall Street bankers float idea of 'withholding campaign donations to Senate Democrats in symbolic protest'

Bankers at big Wall Street firms “have discussed withholding campaign donations to Senate Democrats in symbolic protest” of calls to break up the institutions, according to this story from Reuters.

The news service says representatives from Citigroup, JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs and Bank of America, have met to discuss ways to urge Democrats, including Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown, “to soften their party's tone toward Wall Street, sources familiar with the discussions said this week.”

Bank officials said the idea of withholding donations “was not discussed at a meeting of the four banks in Washington but it has been raised in one-on-one conversations between representatives of some of them. However, there was no agreement on coordinating any action, and each bank is making its own decision, they said.”

'Monsanto's Dream': Pro-GMO DARK Act Comes to Congress

The battle over genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, reached the U.S. capital on Wednesday when news broke that Kansas Republican Rep. Mike Pompeo will reintroduce a bill that blocks states from requiring GMO labeling.

The legislation, dubbed by critics the Deny Americans the Right-to-Know or DARK Act, grants the Secretary of Health and Human Services sole authority to mandate GMO labeling and sets forth particular standards for any label that contains claims that GMOs were or were not used in the production of the food— hampering any attempts by the Food and Drug Administration to pass legislation on the federal level.

Further, the bill preempts any local or state requirement and thus would overturn existing laws in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine, which critics say is a direct attack on state sovereignty. The bill was originally introduced under the last Congress.

The announcement was made in a press release by the Prime Minister's Office just before sundown Friday.

U.S. Soldiers Sexually Abused 54 Children in Colombia - Then Filmed And Sold It As Pornography

A new report commissioned by the Colombian government and FARC rebels has concluded U.S. soldiers and military contractors sexually abused at least 54 children in Colombia between 2003 and 2007. The investigator cites one case where 53 girls in the town of Melgar were targeted by contractors who filmed the abuse and sold the films as pornography. In another case, a 12-year-old girl was allegedly drugged and raped by a U.S. Army sergeant and a contractor. Under immunity agreements, none of the alleged abusers were ever punished. The media group FAIR notes the story has received no coverage in the U.S. corporate media. A number of U.S. outlets have reported on a new Justice Department probe which concludes U.S. drug enforcement agents in Colombia participated in "sex parties" with prostitutes hired by Colombian drug cartels.

So far the various factions that we have supported over the years have been poor choices, as usual.

Hopefully someday our government officials will wake up. The counterinsurgency doctrine that was supposed to be the answer to all our military shortcomings is a total failure.

SECRET TRADE PACT WOULD ALLOW FOREIGN CORPORATIONS TO SUE U.S. FOR DAMAGING INVESTMENT “EXPECTATIONS”

A new free trade agreement being pushed by the Obama administration could allow foreign corporations to challenge American laws and regulations before international tribunals. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (pdf) (TPP), being negotiated between the U.S. and governments throughout the Western Hemisphere and the Pacific region, includes a provision authorizing companies to sue the U.S. government for actions that undermine their investment “expectations” and damage their business opportunities.

Republicans face dilemma as climate change rises up political agenda

Ted Cruz officially kicked off the long US presidential campaign when he declared his candidacy this week, but his anti-environmental rhetoric has already set the stage for a looming war over whether climate-change denial is a legitimate barrier to the most powerful job in the world.

Occupied Congress doing the (Chosen) People’s Business

As the following articles from the this week show, Congress is busy conducting the people’s business — the “chosen” people’s business, that is. First, the House of Representatives has established a bipartisan task force to combat anti-Semitism around the world. If there is one thing that will break the gridlock in Washington, it is a chance to demonstrate subservience to Jewish campaign paymasters. I wish that were hyperbole, but it’s just a plain fact.

Is It Time for the Jews to Nuke Europe?

There’s a threat lurking within Europe, waiting to rise and strike innocent people. It’s captured headlines and become an international concern. Panic is starting to build and many now wonder if they are safe to travel out in certain areas.

Are we talking about radical Islam? Not quite. Apparently Europe’s biggest problem isn’t Islamic terrorism or the terrifying consequences of mass immigration. . .it’s anti-Semitism!

6-year veteran Falmouth police chief indicted on 73 criminal charges

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced the arrest and indictment of a former chief of police in Falmouth.

A Franklin County grand jury indicted Mark Lane Posey, of Cynthiana, Tuesday on one count of abuse of public a trust over $10,000, one count of theft by unlawful taking, one count of theft by deception under $500 and 70 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, yeah; let's give these guys guns, disarm the public, and tell them it's okay to shoot innocent Americans!

What follows are the principles of police conduct, as set out by Home Minister Robert Peel, at the establishment of the Metropolitan (London) Police Force in 1829:

1. The primary function of the police is the prevention of both crime and disorder.

2. The actions taken by the police are entirely dependent on approval by the people and their acceptance.

3. The maintenance of the rights and dignity of citizens is of utmost importance and the police are to garner voluntary assistance form the people in the maintenance of law and order.

4. The use of physical force by the police will not help in getting cooperation. In fact, it will achieve the opposite.

5. The police will earn the favour of the people by being a completely impartial force, rather than pandering to popular opinions.

6. Only when polite verbal communication with people fails to achieve the desired results of law and order should the police revert to the use of physical violence.

7. In essence, the police and the public are the same. The former is just a paid extension of the latter to completely focus on securing the welfare of their kind.

8. All actions taken by the police need to be focused on doing their prescribed duties without threatening the judiciary and its powers in any way.

9. The real test for the police is not the method in which results achieved but the results themselves, which is the absence of crime and instability in the society.

HOW FAR THE POLICE HAVE FALLEN!

BEX ALERT - Jeb Bush: Obama Disparaging Netanyahu While Negotiating With A Country That Supports The Holocaust "

JEB BUSH: The Israel/Iran comparison is probably the most telling. As we’ve disengaged over the first term of his office, now we are seeing the ramifications of this. The implications of instability now are becoming more and more apparent. Americans want their president to keep America secure and to keep American citizens secure and this policy of pulling back, of disengagement is not the right approach. If our friends don’t count on us and trust us, and there are many examples of that, and our enemies don’t fear us, it creates the challenges we are now seeing, particularly in the middle east, but across the board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Never have I seen a candidate with tongue so handy and information so uncertain. I think America deserves better for a President, and I think Americans are tired of politicians fanatically devoted to Israel while ignoring the problems right here at home!

US Declassifies Document Revealing Israel’s Nuclear Program

Smith, who heads the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy, reportedly said he thinks this is the first time the US government has officially confirmed that Israel is a nuclear power, a status that Israel has long been widely known to have despite being undeclared.

In a development that has largely been missed by mainstream media, the Pentagon early last month quietly declassified a Department of Defense top-secret document detailing Israel’s nuclear program, a highly covert topic that Israel has never formally announced to avoid a regional nuclear arms race, and which the US until now has respected by remaining silent.

What's next in police state America? Why armed TSA police of course!

The NY Times reported the union that represents the TSA renewed its push for armed agents at checkpoints of the nation's airports. Using a violent attack by a machete-wielding taxi driver in New Orleans as an excuse. Another pilot allegedly crashed a plane on purpose with 150 people on board, why doesn't the TSA demand yearly psychological and polygraphs exams of pilots? Why don't they set up random DUI pre-flight checkpoints of pilots nationwide? What about tired pilots that fall asleep in the cockpit? Police state America knows pilots would strike and air transportation would come to a halt.
