WEALTH AND POVERTY IN THE UNITED STATES - Jeremy Cloward, Ph.D.

snip: Unlike income, wealth is determined not by one’s salary but instead is based upon an individual’s assets. Based on this criteria, as of 2014, the bottom 80% of the US population controls just 7% of the wealth in the United States combined. Yet, as noted, the gap between the wealthiest 1% of the United States and the other 99% is greater than at any time since 1928, the year before the Great Depression began.

MEGA BEX ALERT - FOX News: Evidence in Sony hack attack suggests possible involvement by Iran, China or Russia, intel source says

The U.S. investigation into the recent hacking attack at Sony Pictures Entertainment has turned up evidence that does not point to North Korea as the "sole entity" in the case, but rather, raises the possibility that Iran, China or Russia may have been involved, an intelligence source told Fox News on Thursday.

Millions in Poverty Get Less Media Coverage than 482 Billionaires

snip: “The notion that the wealthiest nation on Earth has one in every six of its citizens living at or below the poverty threshold reflects not a lack of resources, but a lack of policy focus and attention — and this is due to a lack of public awareness to the issue,” writes Frederick Reese of MintPress News. Contrary to widespread media portrayal, the U.S. has one of the highest poverty rates of major Western nations. In order to increase awareness of poverty within the nation, writes PBS talk show host Tavis Smiley, the media must become an accurate and comprehensive source of information—and not only in reaction to a political agenda. According to Smiley, we must call on the news media to “promote our collective appreciation of the inherent values we all share in alleviating domestic poverty.

New watchdog bans EU from being GM-free

Nations and regions which want to stay free of genetically-modified crops will be banned from doing so under a devastating ruling by EU scientists.

The decision, the first from the new European Food Safety Authority, means governments will be unable to stop the controversial plants being grown on their soil - effectively opening the floodgates.

It is a disastrous blow to those British consumers, farmers, politicians and green campaigners who are fearful about the safety of so-called Frankenstein foods.

The administrations in Scotland and Wales and many English local authorities - particularly in the South West - oppose GM crops.

Last night, Greenpeace warned Britain is being dragged into a vast and unpredictable experiment. Once commercial planting of GM crops is allowed, their pollen will spread and contaminate the entire countryside.

U.S. Students Resist Israeli Occupation of Palestine

snip: Although the student protests have been covered by smaller non-corporate media outlets and across social media, there have been negative distortions made by corporate media. Salehi described his own experience, in which he and fellow students were harassed, threatened, and even brought to the attention of corporate media power-house Fox News, which claimed that such protests were anti-Semitic and harassed Jewish students. By contrast, as Salehi and Barrows-Friedman make clear, these protests aim to protect Palestinians’ human rights while drawing critical attention to the politics of the state of Israel.

Sony hack: China may have helped North Korea, US states

US official states that North Korea responsible for hacking of Sony over The Interview film – and that Kim Jong-un's regime may have had Chinese help

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, according to US Officials and FOX News, North Korea, China, Russia, Iran, (and everyone else the US needs an excuse to invade) secretly create the most potent cyber-army in the world, then expose the existence of that cyber-army with a pointless attack on a movie studio?

And if you believe THAT one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

After Sony hack, is U.S. grid next?

North Korea says did not hack Sony, wants joint probe with U.S.

North Korea said U.S. accusations that it was involved in a cyberattack on Sony Pictures were "groundless slander" and that it was wanted a joint investigation into the incident with the United States.

An unnamed spokesman of the North's foreign ministry said there would be "grave consequences" if Washington refused to agree to the joint probe and continued to accuse Pyongyang, the official KCNA news agency reported on Saturday.

On Friday, President Barack Obama blamed North Korea for the devastating cyberattack, which led to the Hollywood studio cancelling "The Interview", a comedy on the fictional assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Obama - the height of stupidity and self-delusion,.

Listening to Obama's speech about Cuba I was stunned by the following statements:

After all, these 50 years have shown that isolation has not worked. It’s time for a new approach. (...) I do not believe we can keep doing the same thing for over five decades and expect a different result. Moreover, it does not serve America’s interests, or the Cuban people, to try to push Cuba toward collapse. Even if that worked -– and it hasn’t for 50 years –- we know from hard-earned experience that countries are more likely to enjoy lasting transformation if their people are not subjected to chaos.

You get that? Obama admits that 50 years of sanctions and attempts to isolate a small island right off the coast of Florida has not worked. And then he announces that he will impose more sanctions on Russia, the biggest country on the planet, and that he will isolate Russia, even though Russia now has full access to the biggest economy on the planet?!

Is that not the height of stupidity and self-delusion?

Pentagon’s Counter IED unit collecting intelligence on U.S. Companies

?The Pentagon’s main arm for fighting improvised explosive devices engaged in unauthorized surveillance of U.S. citizens and companies and improperly collected intelligence from Afghan farmers when an analyst posed as a college student, according to an inspector general’s report released Thursday.

The intelligence efforts by the Joint IED Defeat Organization — established to fight roadside bombs in Iraq and Afghanistan — were found to violate executive orders and regulations.

Two military officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly, confirmed that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, released in June after five-years captivity by the Taliban, was one of the Americans on which JIEDDO collected information.

JIEDDO acknowledged that the inspector general’s findings but a spokesman said they were minor, technical issues that have been addressed.

The Crazy US ‘Group Think’ on Russia

The U.S. government is back on that high horse and charging off to sanction Russia over Ukraine, a crisis that has been thoroughly misrepresented in the mainstream U.S. news media and in the halls of government.

Has anyone in Official Washington thought through the latest foreign policy “group think,” the plan to destabilize nuclear-armed Russia? All the “smart” people, including the New York Times editors, are rubbing their hands with glee over the financial crisis being imposed on Russia because of the Ukraine crisis, but no one, it seems, is looking down the road.

Ending the Cold War on Cuba? From the Freezer to the Chiller

If Washington ended its economic aggression against Cuba and others then it might just be a signal of real change. Otherwise it’s just more of the same imperialist policy that is the bedrock of American power.

As US President Barack Obama announced his surprise «historic» bid to normalize relations with Cuba this week, the New York Times swooned with glowing news. ‘US to Restore Full Relations With Cuba, Erasing a Last Trace of Cold War Hostility’ was how its top headline put it. Welcoming the development, the American «newspaper of record» said Obama vowed to «cut loose the shackles of the past» and to «sweep aside one of the last vestiges of the Cold War».

But, purple prose aside, the hard detail is that the ongoing illegal American embargo on Cuba will stay in place. Moreover, the move comes as Washington slaps on more sanctions against Russia and unleashes new sanctions on Venezuela.

Obama’s Belated Realism on Cuba

Just as ostracism and rejection of the normal give-and-take of diplomacy has been utterly unproductive in the case of Cuba, so too has been the case with Iran, with positive results having been obtained only when real diplomacy began under the current U.S. administration.

What most distinguishes the case of Cuba is the sheer length of time during which the futile posture of attempted isolation and embargo has been sustained. We long, long ago passed the point where we can say with finality and high confidence that the policy does not work.

Obama: Hollywood weak, Boston stong

Obama White House stands by free speech in Sony hacking scandal

The U.S. government has yet to reveal what evidence they have of a “linkage” between North Korea and the Nov. 24 hacking attack on Sony Entertainment but they are considering a “range of options” in response, according to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is on TV right now championing free speech as he bashes North Korea. This from the same US Government which has jailed whistleblowers and tried to impose censorship on the entire US society to the point where we have to use euphemisms like "F-bomb" and "N-word" in order not to offend those who must not be offended. And of course, never, EVER, criticize Israel!

Report: FBI's Anthrax Investigation Was Flawed

The Government Accountability Office says the science the FBI used to investigate the 2001 anthrax attacks was flawed.

The GAO released a report Friday on its findings. The agency didn't take a position on the FBI's conclusion that Army biodefense researcher Bruce Ivins acted alone in making and sending the powdered spores that killed five people and sickened 17 others.

The report adds fuel to the debate among experts, including many of Ivins' co-workers at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, over whether Ivins could have made and mailed the anthrax-filled envelopes.

The GAO said the FBI's research did not provide a full understanding of the methods and conditions that give rise to genetic mutations used to differentiate between samples of anthrax bacteria. The report calls this a "key scientific gap."

Think North Korea hacked Sony? Think about this

Unlike any hack attributed to North Korea in the past

North Korea has been blamed for a string of hacks in the past, and it’s generally accepted that the country has the capability to hack and attack companies. But no previous attack attributed to North Korea—or any nation-state—has been so public and so noisy. In the past, attacks happened, North Korea was suspected, and then sometimes the country was later blamed. It rarely said anything, except for an initial denial. This time around, the hacker group has posted messages online taunting Sony and telling the FBI they cannot be caught. Early on, they were also interacting with reporters.

Sony Hack: What They're Not Telling You

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The evidence indicates the SONY hack was done by disgruntled ex-employees of SONY itself. Yet the White House has hastily put together a frame-up of North Korea, and unlike the Benghazi attack, the movie that is supposed to be the root cause of it all actually does exist.

So what is going on?

One possibility is that SONY will reverse its decision (under covert pressure from the White House) and go ahead with the Christmas Day release of "The Interview." This will be followed by multiple bombings of movie theaters across America. Just like 9-11, this will be "justification" for war against the "attacker", which we are being assured is North Korea. War with North Korea opens the door to war with China and through China, Russia, all to protect the paper dollar from the Ruble and the Yuan. Millions will die and the world will go back to being enslaved to the private central bankers for another hundred years.

Collapsing oil price brings back memories of 1980s Oklahoma oil and gas bubble - Deja vu all over again

As far as I know, the fracking bubble that’s now well into its denouement didn’t have a single ineptly run bank at its center, as the Oklahoma oil and gas bubble did. Most of the other details of that earlier fiasco, though, were present and accounted for. Sky-high fuel prices, check; reserves unprofitable at earlier prices that suddenly looked like a winning deal, check; a media frenzy that oversold the upside and completely ignored the possibility of a downside, check; vast torrents of money and credit from banks and investors too dazzled by the thought of easy riches to ask the obvious questions, check; a flurry of drilling companies that lost money every single quarter but managed to stay in business by heaping up mountains of unpayable debt, check. Pretty much every square on the bingo card marked “ecoomic debacle” has been filled in with a pen dipped in fracking fluid.

Now of course a debacle of the Penn Square variety requires at least one other thing, which is a banking industry so fixated on this quarter’s profits that it can lose track of the minor little fact that lending money to people who can’t pay it back isn’t a business strategy with a long shelf life. I hope none of my readers are under the illusion that this is lacking just now.

Claims that boys were murdered by VIP sex ring are credible and true - police

Scotland Yard has said claims by a witness that a “VIP” sex abuse ring murdered three boys are “credible and true”.

The allegations made by the witness, known by the pseudonym Nick, have triggered a murder investigation.

Police said the alleged abuse by a Westminster-based paedophile ring lasted a decade at locations across London and the Home Counties, including military premises.

Det Supt Kenny McDonald, who is leading the homicide inquiry, told a press conference on Thursday that detectives believed the witness’s claims.

The abuse was said to have taken place from 1975 to 1984, when Nick was aged between seven and 16. Some of the abuse is linked to a flat in Dolphin Square, Pimlico, London, and at times is alleged to have taken place at “parties”. Sometimes it involved groups of men and other times a lone male.

The key findings:

--In total, 205 sources appeared on the programs discussing military options in Syria and Iraq. Just six of these guests, or 3 percent, voiced opposition to US military intervention. There were 125 guests (61 percent) who spoke in favor of US war.

--On the high-profile Sunday talk shows, 89 guests were invited to talk about the war. But just one, Nation editor Katrina vanden Heuvel, could be coded as an anti-war guest.

The Israel Lobby Cowbird

How Israel lobbying organizations flit about Washington, hatching operatives into the U.S. federal government to pursue a solitary goal—advancing the interests of a foreign state.

How is the Israel lobby like a swarm of cowbirds?

Cowbirds use the devious strategy of brood parasitism, arriving at the nest of more parentally-oriented birds to lay their own eggs. Cowbirds then enjoy unburdened freedom to forage and thrive while their own young are raised, fed and protected by unsuspecting parents. If an avian host dares remove the cowbird’s offspring, the host’s own eggs—if not the entire nest—will likely be destroyed by the watchful cowbird.

Iran nuclear deal within grasp

The US-Iranian negotiations for a nuclear deal are slated to resume on Monday amidst growing optimism that this could be the end of the year-long endgame under way, and an accord is in sight, finally. The US secretary of state John Kerry recently said that the effort will be to reach an accord even before the extended deadline of end-June.

The target is to reach a political agreement by March 1, 2015and a comprehensive agreement by July 1. To be sure, if there was any disappointment that the deal couldn’t be struck yet after intense talks began an year ago, that has dispelled. The mood in Tehran bazaar is “bullish”, according to New York Times, sensing that a deal with the US is in the works.

The main reason for this growing optimism is that the two sides have a good idea by now of each other’s ‘red lines’ and also the grey area where give-and-take is possible. In sum, there is no more a need for brinkmanship or grandstanding.

The US Is Ready To Blame North Korea For The Sony Hack

The US government now reportedly believes that North Korea is directly to blame for the devastating and unprecedented attack on Sony, The New York Times reports.

The massive Sony data hack is likely retaliation for the controversial comedy "The Interview," which depicts the assassination of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

US investigators have now parsed through enough evidence to claim that North Korea is "centrally involved."

Peshawar Attack – The Empire Strikes Again

Typically, imperial powers depend on the inability of oppressed local populations to muster a unified resistance, and the most successful occupiers are skilled at exploiting the differences among the occupied. Certainly that was the story of the British Empire’s success, and its legacy of nurtured local hatreds can be seen wherever the Union Flag flew, from Muslim-Hindu hatred in Pakistan and India, to Catholic-Protestant hatred in Ireland, to, yes, Jew-Arab, hatred in modern Israel. Ancient Rome was as good at encouraging internecine resentments among the occupied as Britain ever was. - Constantine’s Sword: The Church and the Jews – A History by James Carroll

A (mild) thaw in US-Russia ties

Reports on the meeting between the US secretary of state John Kerry and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the American Embassy Residence in Rome suggest that an urgent need has arisen for the Obama administration to seek the Kremlin’s cooperation in the Middle East crisis.

The Indian pundits must be surprised how such bonhomie could exist between Washington and Moscow at the UN SC on the very same day (Friday) in New York when the US state department mildly censored Delhi for doing ‘business’ with Russia during President Vladimir Putin’s visit to India.

Plainly put, that’s how the international system works, and Prime Minister Narendra Modi not only understood it perfectly well but has also been prescient about the imperatives of a Russian-American working relationship sooner rather than later, and of course the transitory nature of the current chill in Russia’s relations with the West.

U.S. Links North Korea to Sony Hacking

American intelligence officials have concluded that the North Korean government was “centrally involved” in the recent attacks on Sony Pictures’s computers, a determination reached just as Sony on Wednesday canceled its release of the comedy, which is based on a plot to assassinate Kim Jong-un, the North Korean leader.

Senior administration officials, who would not speak on the record about the intelligence findings, said the White House was still debating whether to publicly accuse North Korea of what amounts to a cyberterrorism campaign. Sony’s decision to cancel release of “The Interview” amounted to a capitulation to the threats sent out by hackers this week that they would launch attacks, perhaps on theaters themselves, if the movie was released.

U.S. TV Provides Ample Platform for American Torturers, But None to Their Victims By Glenn Greenwald

snip: Whenever America is forced to confront its heinous acts, the central strategy is to disappear the victims, render them invisible. That’s what robs them of their humanity: it’s the process of dehumanization. That, in turns, is what enables American elites first to support atrocities, and then, when forced to reckon with them, tell themselves that - despite some isolated and well-intentioned bad acts – they are still really good, elevated, noble, admirable people. It’s hardly surprising, then, that a Washington Post/ABC News poll released this morning found that a large majority of Americans believe torture is justified even when you call it “torture.” Not having to think about actual human victims makes it easy to justify any sort of crime.

Congress extends dozens of tax breaks

The US Senate approved a sweeping package of tax breaks, sending to President Barack Obama a bill that allows individuals and corporations to save billions of dollars on their 2014 taxes.

On the Senate’s final day of the year, lawmakers passed some 55 so-called tax extenders, deductions that expired at the end of 2013 but will be retroactively restored with the current legislation.

The Senate easily passed the measure, 76 votes to 16, after the House passed it earlier this month.

“Today’s strong bipartisan vote shows that Democrats and Republicans can come together to encourage our economy to create jobs and strengthen the middle class,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said in a statement.

Turkey, a NATO member since 1952, has played a pivotal role in the destabilization and destruction of neighboring Syria. Since 2011, Turkey has allowed its territory to be used as a transit and staging point for sectarian terrorists flowing from around the world and into Syria in what could be described as a de facto NATO invasion by proxy...

"If it was torture, I would be in jail," James Mitchell said on "The Kelly File." "This thing was investigated over and over.

Landmark Petition Submitted to Parliament Could Launch Canadian 9/11 Investigation

An historic milestone in the 9/11 Truth Movement has been achieved by a dedicated group of activists in Ottawa, Ontario, with the presentation of a petition in the House of Commons requesting a "parliamentary review of the omissions and inconsistencies in the official United States of America 9/11 Commission Report."

This is not the first time that Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has published news on the three-year effort to present this petition to the Canadian government. Back in February 2012, we reported that the petition for a parliamentary review of the destruction of the three WTC skyscrapers on September 11, 2001, had been given to members of Parliament in the hope that they would formally present the petition in the House of Commons. However, officials were not yet ready to tackle the numerous unanswered questions about 9/11. Again, in March 2013, we reported that a renewed effort to have the petition read in the House of Commons was impeded by Ottawa MP and foreign affairs critic Paul Dewar, because he "did not agree with it." Still not ready.

A major development finally unfolded on December 3, 2014 when a Member of Parliament rose in the House of Commons "to present a petition, from petitioners in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, and particularly in the Ottawa area, calling on the government of Canada to conduct a parliamentary review into the events that occurred in the United States on September 11."

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!

There is no taboo against speaking of ISIS. The taboo related to ISIS is its connection to another American creation, the modern state of Israel.

'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!

Indeed, a journalist or a politician who dares point out any fundamental flaws in the country or even its actual history can expect to have his or her patriotism challenged.

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.

CIA torture details are appalling

The global ‘war on terror,’ conceived by the Israelis and launched by their American lackeys shortly after the false-flag attacks of 9/11, is nothing short of a cruel hoax on the world. The sadists and megalomaniacs who have executed this comical ruse may well evade justice in this lifetime, but history will record their foul deeds so that future generations will rightly view them as the monstrous villains that they have proven to be.

`Christopher Bollyn: Why Solving 9-11 is Our Most Urgent Task

One sure way to get a grasp of our political predicament is to logically analyze what the political leadership has done – and what it has failed to do – about the terror atrocity of 9-11.

Since September 11, 2001, four successive administrations and fourteen Sessions of Congress have utterly failed to conduct a proper criminal investigation of 9-11, a criminal atrocity that profoundly affected the course of the nation. Rather than investigate the mass murder of 3,000 people on 9-11, successive U.S. administrations have engaged in a criminal deception, using lies to take us into foreign wars while imposing police state measures at home.

The government’s egregious failure to conduct a proper criminal investigation into the events of 9-11 is exactly like the failure by the newly-installed president, Lyndon B. Johnson, to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. In both cases, rather than conducting proper criminal investigations, the government appointed commissions that produced seriously flawed reports that were simply meant to support the official, but false, version of events.

Propaganda Works: According to the American people, torture is justified, and effective

Following the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA interrogation practices in the period following the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, 51% of the public says they think the CIA methods were justified, compared with just 29% who say they were not justified; 20% do not express an opinion. The new national survey by the Pew Research Center, conducted Dec. 11-14 among 1,001 adults, finds that amid competing claims over the effectiveness of CIA interrogation methods, 56% believe they provided intelligence that helped prevent terrorist attacks, while just half as many (28%) say they did not provide this type of intelligence.

Dick Cheney on Torture: the Report Is “Full of Crap” and “I’d Do It Again in a Minute”

Dick Cheney, the man who says his job it was to get the torture program put in place during the Bush, Jr. years, has gone on record to say he thinks the newly released Senate torture report (which he hasn’t even read) is “full of crap.”

In some ways, Mr. Cheney (or, maybe I'll call him DICK), might be literally right considering that the report details one of the "enhanced interrogation techniques" was something called "rectal rehydration," which, like every other disgusting and dehumanizing method used in that report, was ultimately deemed ineffective and totally unjustifiable.

What's rectal rehydration? Well, in case you haven't heard, the Washington Post summed it up pretty well:

People brought 369 handguns, 228 rifles, 140 shotguns, and 41 assault weapons to the Masonic lodge and a grocery store. The mayor said the event "makes our city safer by taking these guns off the street so they don't fall into the hands of criminals or children."Chief Charlie Beck tweeted "Guns without a purpose are guns that take lives."

Sydney Gunman Had History of Sexual Assault, Rage at Afghan War

Monis, whose age was given as 50 by police, arrived in Australia in 1996 claiming to be a refugee, according to Australia’s 9News. Iran’s Fars news agency said Australia denied an attempt to extradite him back to the Islamic Republic, where he went by the name of Mohammad Hassan Manteghi Bourjerdi and had been indicted for fraud.

Senate torture report reveals American sadism

The global ‘war on terror,’ conceived by the Israelis and launched by their American lackeys shortly after the false-flag attacks of 9/11, is nothing short of a cruel hoax on the world.The sadists and megalomaniacs who have executed this comical ruse may well evade justice in this lifetime, but history will record their foul deeds so that future generations will rightly view them as the monstrous villains that they have proven to be.

A particularly cringe-worthy revelation is that the CIA practiced “rectal feeding” where prisoners on hunger strikes were force-fed through their rectum in order to keep them alive. The RT commentary cited above writes that, “At least five CIA detainees were subjected to ‘rectal rehydration,’ or rectal feeding, the Senate report reads, in order to keep prisoners alive who allegedly otherwise refused to eat.”

5 Reasons to Question the Official Story of the 'Sydney Siege'

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In the aftermath of yet another highly publicized terror attack (or at least the potential for a high profile attack) in Australia by foreign-born jihadists, the Western public is once again experiencing a variety of emotional reactions that they have carefully been trained to experience whenever such events take place at home or abroad...

Amazon’s Seattle HQ partly evacuated due to possible bomb threat

Some Amazon employees this morning are working from home after a possible bomb threat shut down at least one of the company’s main Seattle buildings.

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BOOGA BOOGA!

WE are getting these little dribs and drabs of terror to ramp up to something dramatic, possibly associated with Christmas, like a Syrian/Iraqi/ISIS/Muslim armed with a Russian supplied sniper rifle and Chinese bullets taking out the Pope for reversing himself on whether dogs go to heaven!

Miko Peled: This is NOT Recognition

As the recognition by European countries of a so called “State of Palestine” continues, it is becoming obvious that this is nothing but an old colonial trick dusted and reused. The fact that liberal Zionist hypocrites the likes of the Israeli writers Amoz Oz and David Grossman are all over it says it all.

In Palestine, speaking out against injustice is no longer enough. In fact it was never enough. As people of conscience we must act for the removal of the injustice and its replacement with a free, democratic system. But many forget that in order to achieve this there must be a struggle. A real struggle, and not some intellectualized version of a struggle as is often suggested by some Israeli liberals, is the only way to defeat racist, colonialist regimes.

The new European ‘arc of instability’

What’s certain is that the Empire of Chaos won’t relent in its strategy of heating up the new arc of instability – inside Europe, across the economic/financial spectrum – and instrumentalizing its pre-fabricated New Iron Curtain from the Baltic to the Black Sea.

The European Council on Foreign Relations and Berlin think-tank Friedrich Ebert Stiftung have just reached more or less the same conclusion.

If the dangerous stand-off between the EU and Russia over Ukraine is not solved, the EU could face, up to 2030, a military build-up in eastern Europe; a new arms race with NATO as a protagonist; and a semi-permanent “zone of instability” from the Baltic to the Balkans and the Black Sea.

Prof: ‘Elf on the Shelf’ conditions kids to accept surveillance state

Could there be something more sinister behind the little elf sitting on the shelf who returns to the North Pole each night?

Yes, says Laura Pinto, a digital technology professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.

She recently published a paper titled “Who’s the Boss” on the doll, saying the idea of it reporting back to Santa each night on the child’s behavior “sets up children for dangerous, uncritical acceptance of power structures,” according to insideHalton.com.

Eric Schmidt: To Avoid NSA Spying, Keep Your Data In Google's Services

Google Chairman Eric Schmidt told a conference on surveillance at the Cato Institute that Edward Snowden's revelations on NSA spying shocked the company's engineers — who then immediately started working on making the company's servers and services more secure. Now, after a year and a half of work, Schmidt says that Google's services are the safest place to store your sensitive data.

Meet Rep. Mike Honda, The Piece Of Work Who Wants To Put You In Prison For Ten Years For Having Body Armor

In between calling for an end to 'the discriminatory ban on bisexual blood donors' and condemning the Israeli boycott, Mike Honda wants to put you in prison for ten years for having body armor. He demands school libraries remove all online filters of Bi-sexual & Transgender websites, so that schoolchildren can access them.
He introduced a 'Homemade Firearms Accountability Act' to 'respond to the growing black market for homemade firearms' and is freaked out about 'the emergence of additive manufacturing (3D printing) to produce firearms.' His 'Climate Change Education Act' seeks to" broaden the understanding of human-induced climate change." Honda, imprisoned in a Japanese internment camp during WWII, supports all kind of hate crime laws and he even wrote an open letter to Rand Paul praising Obama's executive orders. This article will introduce you to this real piece of work, since you've probably never heard of him.

The NSA wrote turkey-day talking points, because of course it did

Thanksgiving can be a touchy time for families with divergent politics. If not Obamacare, it's a good bet that somebody, somewhere was facing off with an aunt or uncle about the NSA.

Defenders of the spy agency might have found this set of talking points helpful. Distributed internally by the NSA the week before Thanksgiving and reported earlier today by Firedoglake, the two-pager — a literal set of bullet points — armed employees with verbal ammunition that they were encouraged to share "with family and close friends."

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.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder of the Facebook posts were propaganda phonies, considering the next article down.

Previously an outspoken critic of Iranian government, was interviewed by Australian media in 2001, loved Western society...

As predicted, the suspect amid the "Sydney Siege," has long been on the radar of Australian law enforcement, as well as a frequent visitor to Australia's court system.

Before that, however, he came to Australia as a political refugee, an opponent of what he called the "Iranian regime," and was even interviewed by Australia's ABC network in 2001 as part of an ongoing anti-Iranian propaganda campaign...

HERE'S THE PLAYLIST USED BY THE CIA TO TORTURE DETAINEES

According to declassified reports, video evidence and testimony from whistleblower guards and soldiers, the US government used music to torture detainees in a number of different ways.? In some cases, songs would be played in repetition for hours or days on end, as to drive the prisoner to insanity. Music was also used to prevent detainees from sleeping, which is another way of creating delirium and vulnerability in the detainees. Some songs were chosen because they were annoying, while others were chosen because they may have been offensive to the prisoner’s culture or religion.
