Are We Addicted to Failure?

Like all addicts, Central Planners are confident they can manage the monkey on their back. But this is a self-serving illusion.

Addiction is many things, but beneath its complexities it is a self-destructive expression of the desire to avoid or suppress pain. The pain might be physical or the stuff of the mind, memories or inner demons or tortured misgivings about one's choices, soul and life.

Welfare office worker stole homeless clients’ checks: investigators

A veteran city worker stole more than $500,000 over three years by diverting welfare checks meant to cover the rent of homeless clients to his pals posing as landlords, investigators said.

Rafael Heras, 46, who worked as a job-opportunity specialist for the Human Resources Administration in Harlem, took the public-assistance money and issued checks to phony landlords, who then rerouted the money back to Heras, according to the Department of Investigation.

One of the bogus landlords, Carlos Felix, helped Heras steal more than $100,000, the DOI said.

Obama, US politicians ‘owned’ by Zionist lobby: Barry Grossman

An international lawyer says President Barack Obama’s statements on Israel’s deadly onslaught against Palestinians stem from “power politics” as he and other US politicians are “owned” by “the Zionist lobby.”

“We should never be so naive as to expect anything said by President Obama that touches on the subject of Israel to be based on sound logic or on facts,” said Barry Grossman in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday commenting on Obama’s remarks about Israel’s offensive on Gaza.

“There is nothing about Obama’s position or rhetoric on Gaza that is based on principle or facts as distinct from pure power politics,” Grossman added. “The simple demonstrable fact which America is at last waking up to, is that its political apparatus has been occupied by special interests for a very long time and no group is more organized, better resourced or more pernicious that the Zionist lobby.”

San Francisco: Former FBI employee, wife admit to bank fraud

A former FBI employee and his wife pleaded guilty to bank fraud Thursday, with the husband further admitting that he had lied to the agency to maintain a top-level security clearance, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Daly City resident Charles Espinel, 61, who worked for the FBI for 32 years, and his wife Jeannette Espinel, 58, admitted that they defrauded First California Bank and Wells Fargo Bank in connection with mortgage loans they received to buy a $750,000 rental property in Daly City and a $600,000 rental property in San Bruno, court documents stated.

New discipline figures from Canada’s national police force show a record number of Mounties behaving badly.

From lying under oath, to driving drunk, sharing porn on RCMP computers, to having sex in cruisers, new discipline figures from Canada’s national police force show a record number of Mounties behaving badly.

The latest report from the RCMP’s professional integrity officer shows 104 new formal discipline cases were brought forward in 2012-13 compared to an average of 88 for the previous 13 years. The report suggests the increase may be linked to the force’s tighter discipline process and a tougher stand on “bad apples” by RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.

I-Team: Ex-Police chief calls Boulder City officials 'corrupt'

Ethics charges and legal motions are flying in Boulder City, thanks to an employee the city wanted gone. You may not think of Boulder City as a bubbling cauldron of political intrigue and conspiracies, but that's what police chief Tom Finn alleged last April before -- and after -- he was fired. He alleged that a homogenous cluster of interconnected elites calls the shots in Boulder City, and says they wanted him gone because he was a burr under their saddle. They had no idea how much trouble he could cause.

"I think a federal agency needs to come in and just start issuing subpoenas," Finn said.

How to Find Yourself on the Terror Watch List

Early on in a just-leaked 166-page U.S. government guide to officially declaring someone a terrorist or suspected terrorist, a passage acknowledges that “watchlisting is not an exact science.” The whole enterprise has “inherent limitations,” in part because “analytic judgments may differ regarding whether subjective criteria have been met,” the document states. “Given these realities, the U.S. government’s watchlisting process attempts to safeguard the American people from a TERRORIST attack while safeguarding privacy, civil rights and civil liberties.”

US Invents Reports of Russia Attacking Ukraine Bases

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf introduced the story to the press at today’s briefing, claiming that the US has secret evidence from “human intelligence information” that the attacks are taking place. The Pentagon concurred, saying such attacks have been going on “for several days.”

During the past several days, there has not been a single report out of Ukraine of an artillery strike against any of their military bases, anywhere in the country. The last such incident was two weeks ago, when rebels fired a BM-21 grad at a military base.

And this is Ukraine we’re talking about, which comes up with its own dubious stories of Russian attacks on a near daily basis. If Russia was carried out concerted shelling against Ukrainian military targets, Ukraine would be harping on about it constantly. They aren’t even alleging anything close to that is happening.

Missouri Voters to Consider State Privacy Amendment With National Implications

Canada went to war. But why? What really drove a generation to sign up for war

(A book review of Noble Illusions: Young Canada Goes to War by Stephen Dale (Fernwood Publishing,2014; $18.95)

A tidal wave of First World War centenary celebrations -- set to unfold over the next four years -- is now upon us. Canada, like other nations, will spend many millions of dollars commemorating Canadians' participation in the war that was supposed to "end all wars."

But what will these events tell us about the meaning of that cataclysmic war and its lessons for today's world? We can probably guess the answer from statements that key figures have already made.

FLASHBACK - An exodus which was merely a myth

Showing the foundations of the fort of the XVIIIth dynasty, the oldest ever found in this line of defense, known as the road of Horus, Mohamad Abdel-Maqsoud, the leader of excavations and the director of the central administration of Egyptian antiquities, said that it is testimony to the fierceness of the fighting. "It is here that was established the first large lock of the empire against the conquerors from the east, as the Hyksos," he says, whereas today the Suez Canal is only 5 km. But the basis for subsequent attacks in the Pharaonic empire in the direction of Palestine, with the establishment of a chain composed of a dozen strongholds until what is now known as the Gaza Strip.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel gains a great deal of political advantage from the story of Exodus. But much of the Torah or Old Testament is simply stolen from other sources. The story of Noah and the Flood, for example, was copied from the Epic of Gilgamesh, as was the story of Job. It is important to recall that in those days there was no prohibition on copying. The physical book or scroll was the thing of value due to the labor intensive process of creating it, and copying/modifying other stories was accepted practice.

But according to modern archaeologists, including Egypt's Dr. Zahi Hawass, the story told of the flight of the Hebrews from Pharaoh actually happened to the Hyksos, who fled Egypt looting as they went which is why Pharaoh chased after them.

It is important to understand that rulers always lie, and the Israelites are no different.

Alan Greenspan just cannot give up the ghost. During his baleful 18-year reign, the Fed was turned into a serial bubble machine—and thereby became a clear and present danger to honest free market capitalism and an enemy of the 99% who do not benefit from the Wall Street casino and the vast inflation of financial assets which it has enabled. His legacy is a toxically financialized economy that has extracted huge windfall rents from main street, and left it burdened with overwhelming debts and sharply reduced capacity for gains in real living standards and breadwinner jobs.

AIPAC Is the Only Explanation for America's Morally Bankrupt Israel Policy

The official name for Israel's latest assault on Gaza is "Operation Protective Edge." A better name would be "Operation Déjà Vu." As it has on several prior occasions, Israel is using weapons provided by U.S. taxpayers to bombard the captive and impoverished Palestinians in Gaza, where the death toll now exceeds 500. As usual, the U.S. government is siding with Israel, even though most American leaders understand Israel instigated the latest round of violence, is not acting with restraint, and that its actions make Washington look callous and hypocritical in the eyes of most of the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Not to mention the American people.

Political Bestiality: The Israeli Pogrom of Gaza

Let’s start with terms: “bestiality,” bestial is marked by base or inhuman instincts or desires, brutal, to which bestiality adds, display or gratification of bestial traits or impulses; “pogrom,” an organized massacre of helpless people, specifically [and ironically], such a massacre of Jewish people. (Webster’s) Singly, and in combination, I believe we have an accurate description of Israel’s aggression in Gaza, the irony of course being that we see a replay of the barbarous treatment of the Jews practiced throughout history now instead being carried forward by Jews themselves in, yes, a massacre, as brutal as in Czarist times, of Gazans.

Gohmert: A Friend Will Not Put Another Friend in this Kind of Jeopardy

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look at all the things going wrong with the US today and still the Congress obsesses about Israel, Israel, Israel! At 45 seconds, Gohmert calls for the bombing of Iran's nuclear facilities to please his masters in Tel Aviv, apparently unconcerned that both Iran and the US have signed and ratified the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which means the US Government recognizes Iran's right to have those peaceful nuclear facilities Gohmert wants to bomb to please Israel. That such a blatant violation of a treaty agreement would severely damage what remains of the US Government's credibility is not a problem for Gohmert. In his bought-and-paid-for opinion, whatever Israel wants, Israel gets, no matter what it costs the American people!

This is on top of the $3 billion that Israel receives every year for the past decades from the American government siphon of its taxpayers. Hard-pressed American households are getting their drinking water supplies cut off for unpaid utility bills in Detroit and other US cities, but the benevolence of Washington to Israel is like a wellspring that never runs dry.

The powerful voices of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) exert a decisive influence on the formulation of US foreign policy.

Its website at www.cfr.org is heralded as “a trusted, nonpartisan source of timely analysis on international events and trends.” It’s authoritative Journal Foreign Affairs “is widely considered to be the most influential magazine for the analysis and debate of foreign policy and economics.”

Unquestionably the CFR is said to provide a “carefully documented” and “objective” understanding of World events including the crisis in Ukraine and the crimes committed against the people of Palestine.

US ‘Joke’ Intel Belies Knowledge of Real Culprits in Downed Jet

From smoking gun to silver bullet, but in the wrong direction – Washington.

Anyone waiting to see a «smoking gun» implicating Russia and pro-Russian militia in eastern Ukraine in the disaster should have been left underwhelmed by the supposed American «killer evidence». Less smoking gun and more like one of those circus pistols that pop out a joke flag emblazoned with the word «Bang!»

Russian army information shows that a Kiev-controlled SU-25 fighter jet was tailing the airliner just before it disappeared from the radar, and that following the crash another unidentified military aircraft was recorded as circling the crash site, strongly indicating that it was surveilling the aftermath.

In fact, a newly released Rasmussen Reports national survey discovered that 67 percent of voters believe that America is even more divided now than it was four years ago. We are angry, we are frustrated and we love to fight with one another, but none of this strife and discord is getting us anywhere. What most Americans can agree on is that we are facing tremendous problems as a nation. One average of recent polls found that only 26 percent of Americans believe that this country is heading in the right direction and63.8 percent of Americans believe that this country is heading in the wrong direction. Unfortunately, there is very little agreement on what the solutions to our problems are. That is where the division is.

Lois Lerner’s hard drive was merely ‘scratched’ and data was ‘recoverable’, find IRS targeting scheme investigators

Investigators for a House committee learned yesterday that ex-Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner’s hard drive was merely ‘scratched’ and data was not ‘unrecoverable,’ as previously claimed by the IRS.

POLL: Darth Vader More Popular Than ALL 2016 Candidates

None of the 2016 hopefuls is polling higher than Darth Vader. You'll recall that Vader chopped off his son's arm and blew up an entire planet, but evidently in the eyes of the American public these are minor sins compared to Benghazi, Bridgegate and Gov. Rick Perry's hipster glasses. These numbers suggest that if "Star Wars" were real and Darth Vader decided to enter the 2016 presidential race, he'd be the immediate front-runner.

Absolute PROOF MH17 NOT same plane in Famous Facebook Photo "In case it disappears", as the One that crashed!

Well here is absolute Proof that the photo that the media around the world has used as the Malaysian photo taken by Cor Pan who said "This is what the plane looks like if it disappears" is NOT the same plane that was shot down in Ukraine!

Did he take a photo of another plane at a gate or was it as he said the plane he was about to get on that is known as MH17?

Then if it is the same plane, the reports about already dead people may be true with the plane that was shot down.

Yeah sounds crazy? WATCH the PROOF!

The Federal Reserve Cartel: The Freemason BUS & the House of Rothschild

In 1789 Alexander Hamilton became the first Treasury Secretary of the United States. Hamilton was one of many Founding Fathers who were Freemasons. He had close relations with the Rothschild family which owns the Bank of England and leads the European Freemason movement. With Rothschild financing Alexander Hamilton founded two New York banks, including Bank of New York.

Documents Emerge in Senate Hearing from William Broeksmit, Deutsche Exec Alleged to Have Hanged Himself in January

Anshu Jain, Co-CEO of Deutsche Bank, was not having a good day yesterday. First the oath-taking, subpoena-issuing Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations released a detailed email to him from William Broeksmit, the 58-year old former Deutsche risk executive alleged to have hanged himself in his London home on January 26. By the end of the day, someone had leaked to the Wall Street Journal a deeply critical letter of Deutsche Bank from the New York Fed which said that “The size and breadth of errors strongly suggest that the firm’s entire U.S. regulatory reporting structure requires wide-ranging remedial action.”

Obama administration sending military advisers to Ukraine within weeks

?The United States is reportedly preparing to send a team of military advisers into Ukraine to assist with revamping forces there in the midst of the ongoing crisis between government-loyal troops and an anti-Kiev militia.

On Tuesday this week, the Washington Times reported that a spokesperson for the US Department of Defense confirmed plans to put Pentagon advisers in Ukraine.

Mississippi Cuts $1.3 Billion from Schools, Gives $1.3 Billion to Nissan

Mississippi has proved to us all that austerity, or the political ideology of “government living within its means,” is a farce. All austerity means is taking money away from public services, and giving it to private business. Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant and the GOP-led legislature illustrated that perfectly in two ways.

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

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg: Flight ban into Israel 'an undeserved victory for Hamas,' boards El Al flight to show it's safe

The billionaire said he was showing solidarity with the Israeli people by flying into Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport and asked the FAA and European nations to lift the ban on flights to the airport immediately. The ban was enacted after a mortar landed near the airport and last week's Malaysian air disaster in the Ukraine.

The violence didn’t begin with the three abducted Israeli settlers

Although the media is largely portraying Israel’s actions as defensive,violence in the region did not begin with the kidnapping and murder of the three Israel settlers on June 12, 2014.
In fact, Israel has been kidnapping and murdering Palestinian adults and youth on a regular basis for decades (read about how the conflict was started ), yet this is rarely covered in U.S. news.

As the death toll in Gaza continues to rise, we hope you are continuing to contact your Congress people and Senators, asking them to demand that Israel stop its slaughter in Gaza.

We’ve created a powerful infographic you can share with your friends and family that demonstrates two crucial facts:

1) That the violence in the region began BEFORE three Israelis were abducted on killed on June 12, and

2) That Israel has been killing a shockingly disproportionate number of civilians with its bombs in comparison to Hamas’ rockets, both in the current assault and over the last decade.

China questions if MH17 Black Boxes data will be falsified by U.K.. Western Media and government laying blame without evidence

China questions if MH17 data on black boxes will be falsified by the U.K. and they have quite an article about the blame being put on Putin with U.S. pressure yet no evidence.

They said the U.S. has not presented evidence Russia was behind it or even the rebels, yet Russia has presented evidence showing Ukraine was behind it.

Where is the evidence from the U.S.? It is all media controlled blame, not real blame.

This just shows the absolute Hypocrisy of the U.S.! They want to stop the EU from being able to buy any defense items from Russia and stop them from selling defense items to Russia.

BUT the U.S. gets defense engines from Russia which is needed for the U.S. military. So those are EXEMPT from sanctions BUT they would not be exempt from EU sanctions!

US Empire Reaches Breaking Point. “Greatest Threat to Humanity”. Time To End It

The people of the United States must work to end the interventionist violence of the U.S. Empire.

This is Part I of a two part series on American Empire. Part II will focus on the Empire Economy and [how] it is failing to work for most Americans as well as most people of the world.

The historian who chronicles US Empire, William Blum, issued his 130th Anti-Empire Report this week. In it he notes that the US, by far, is seen by the people of the world as “the greatest threat to peace in the world today” with 24% taking that view. Only 2% see Russia as such a threat, and 6% see China.

This should not come as a surprise since, as this map shows, much of the world has been bombed, had their democratically chosen government overthrown and has been occupied by the United States.

PAUL B. FARRELL: Great Crash Of 2016, Third $10 Trillion Loss This Century, Greenspan’s ‘Black Box’ Syndrome Now Handicaps Yellen

Sometime after the Great Crash of 2016, Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen will be testifying before Congress, just like Alan Greenspan was forced to do in 2008. She will be explaining why America has already had three megacrashes in the 21st Century, each draining roughly $10 trillion, each a direct result of Federal Reserve policy failures. She will be forced to explain why the Great Crash of 2016 was a clone of the bank credit crash of 2008 and the 2000 excesses.

A chessboard drenched in blood

The MH17 tragedy may have been a horrendous mistake. But it may also have been a desperate gambit by the Kiev minions of the Empire of Chaos. By now, Russian intel may have already mastered the key facts. Washington’s predictable modus operandi was to shoot from the hip, igniting and in theory winning the spin war, and doubling down by releasing the proverbial army of “top officials” brimming with social media evidence. Moscow will take time to build a meticulous case, and only then lay it out in detail.

The Big Picture spells out the Empire of Chaos elites as extremely uneasy. Take Dr Zbigniew “The Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski, who as a former foreign policy mentor has the ears of the increasingly dejected White House paperboy. Dr Zbig was on CNN this Sunday challenging Europe’s leaders to “stand up to Putin”. He wonders if “Europe wants to become a satellite” and worries about “a moment of decisive significance for the future of the system – of the world system”.

Guilt By Insinuation. How American propaganda works.

As there are a number of possible explanations, let’s keep open minds and resist Washington’s propaganda until facts and evidence are in. In the very least Washington is guilty of using the incident to blame Russia in advance of the evidence. All Washington has shown us so far are accusations and insinuations. If that is all Washington continues to show us, we will know where the blame resides.
Why hasn’t Washington joined Russian President Putin in calling for an objective, non-politicized international investigation by experts of the case of the Malaysian jetliner?

What are You Trying to Hide, Mr Obama?

So far, Putin’s appeal for safe passage for investigators has been wilfully ignored by the Kiev regime, which has if anything stepped up its violence in the region since the air crash. And Western leaders are giving full cover to the Kiev regime by perversely laying the blame on Russia and the self-defense militias in Donetsk, accusing both of obstructing recovery and a crash probe.

To paraphrase Obama: «What is the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors trying to hide?»

Investigators obtain ObamaCare coverage, subsidies using fake identities

Undercover government investigators were able to obtain thousands of dollars in taxpayer subsidies under ObamaCare using fake identities, according to findings being presented to Congress on Wednesday.

The probe by the Government Accountability Office has raised fresh concerns about the ability of the sprawling health care program to prevent or intercept costly fraud schemes. In the case of the GAO investigation, 11 out of 12 applications submitted using "fictitious identities" were accepted, resulting in subsidized health coverage.

"For each of our 11 approved applications, we paid the required premiums to put policies into force, and are continuing to pay the premiums. For the 11 applications that were approved for coverage, we obtained the advance premium tax credit in all cases," the report said.

According to the GAO, the total amount for these credits was $2,500 monthly, adding up to $30,000 a year.

Fact-Free Zone (MH 17)

When trying to catch a criminal, a standard method is to look at means, motive and opportunity. Was the criminal physically capable of committing the act? Did the criminal have a good reason for committing it? Did the criminal get a chance to do it? One more criterion is often quite helpful: does the crime fit the perpetrator's known modus operandi? Let's give this method a try.

IRS employee charged with identity theft

A former IRS employee in Central California was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of stealing the identities of her co-workers and opening credit card accounts to go on shopping sprees with friends, federal prosecutors said.

Viririana Hernandez, a 30-year-old Fresno County woman, and three of her friends stole $1.2 million from 160 people, many IRS employees, U.S. Attorney Benjamin Wagner said. In a 15-page indictment, prosecutors say the four bought home goods, jewelry and clothes. They created credit cards under others' names and bought gift cards to continue their crimes without detection, prosecutors said.

An attorney representing Hernandez could not immediately be reached.

A grand jury indicted the four Fresno County residents on 23 counts, charging them with conspiracy, bank fraud and aggravated identity theft. The others named in court papers are Roberto Martinez, 33; Lilliana Gonzalez, 32; and Daniel Miranda, 25.

Mexican official caught smuggling $2.7 billion worth of cocaine into U.S

Last week, a federal grand jury charged Jose Moreno Serrano, a Mexican national working at the Mexican Consulate Office in Yuma, Ariz., with drug smuggling. On April 25, 2014, passed through an official border crossing along the U.S./Mexican border in Arizona and flashed his consulate credentials and his SENTRI pass (granted to so-called 'trusted travelers'), on his way to work.

Less than five minutes later, Moreno was stopped by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, under the guise of an "extended border search." A search of Moreno's SUV revealed "several black taped packages …the combined gross weight of the packages is 45.85 kilograms/101.1 pounds," stuffed into two hidden compartments, according to court documents.

Why is Israel afraid of Gaza’s Ark?

On July 11th, 2am local time, Israeli warships fired on the Palestinian/International boat, Gaza’s Ark, which burst into flames and was completely destroyed. We had been working on this project for over two years, buying on old fishing boat, the largest one we could find in Gaza, and converting it into a cargo vessel. It was due to sail out of Gaza in September, carrying goods from the occupied West Bank and Gaza to trade with the outside world, in an attempt to break the illegal blockade of the Gaza Strip.

Building this boat continued the movement to sail boats to and from Gaza and was also part of the much larger movement of nonviolent resistance to the Israeli Occupation of Palestine.

So the question posed is, why was Israel so afraid of our little boat, carrying Palestinian embroidery and boxes of dates, a boat that posed no threat whatsoever to Israeli security? Why did the Israeli Occupation Forces feel it was necessary to destroy it?

To paraphrase Obama: «What is the Kiev regime and its Western sponsors trying to hide?»

Significantly, the Malaysian premier did not make the arrangements through the Kiev regime. He dealt directly with the Donetsk People’s Republic leader Alexander Borodai. The Malaysians disclosed publicly that 282 of the bodies recovered so far were to be transported in refrigerated train carriages to Donetsk and thence to the city of Kharkiv before being flown on to Amsterdam. The flight recorder black boxes were also to be handed over in Donetsk by militia members to an official Malaysian investigative team…

Israeli Professor: Rape Palestinian Sisters and Mothers To Stop Terrorism

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

As bombs rain down upon Gaza and Israeli troops march forward with tanks and bulldozers, a recent radio interview conducted on Israeli radio is drawing some criticism from across the world as well as in Israel.

Although the interview was conducted nearly three weeks ago, shortly after the bodies of three Israeli teens were found after being kidnapped and murdered, Dr. Mordechai Kedar stated that the only way to force “terrorists” to think twice about their actions is the threat of the rape of their sisters and mothers...

Is Obamacare Finished? Federal Court Says NO to Subsidies in 36 States

A federal appeals court dealt a major blow to Obamacare today, ruling against the legality of some subsidies issued to people through the Affordable Care Act exchanges.

The ruling involves the states that did not set up their own marketplaces. The language in Obamacare actually restricts subsidies to state-run exchanges.

Only 14 states ran their own exchanges. The federal government took over for the 36 states that opted out of operating their own exchanges – and the court’s ruling says that the federal government may not pay subsidies for insurance plans in those states.

Illegal Immigration And Gangs: Someday Our Cities Will Burn Because We Didn’t Protect Our Borders

Did you know that the number of illegal immigrants that enter Texas each week is greater than the number of babies being born to citizens of that state? The mainstream media is shining the spotlight very brightly on all of the children that are coming over, and there is a reason for that. They are trying to tug on our heartstrings. But there is another part of the story that you aren't hearing much about. By refusing to protect our borders, Barack Obama has allowed hundreds of thousands of gang members to illegally enter the United States and settle in our major cities. In many communities, gang activity is already wildly out of control, and someday our cities will burn because of the foolishness of the federal government.

Former Border Agent: Government Using Immigrant Children for ‘asymmetrical warfare’ Operation

By leaving strategic areas along the southern U.S. border unprotected, and by using children as the face of the illegal immigrant surge to elicit public sympathy, the federal government is engaging in a sophisticated military tactic known as “asymmetrical warfare” against the American people, a former U.S. Border Patrol agent is warning.

Monsanto/FDA: 2 crime families, trillion-dollar hustle

Quoted in the New York Times Magazine (October 25, 1998, “Playing God in the Garden”), Philip Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications, famously stated: “Monsanto shouldn’t have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”

From the Federal Register, Volume 57, No.104, “Statement of [FDA] Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties,” here is what the FDA had to say on this matter: “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.”

The direct and irreconcilable clash of these two statements is no accident. It’s not a sign of incompetence or sloppy work or a mistake or a miscommunication. It’s a clear signal that the fix was in.

Establishment media criticizes Ron Paul for failing to attack Russia

“Normally the Texas Straight Talk column deals with libertarian issues such as Paul’s longstanding criticism of the Federal Reserve. But Sunday’s piece on the Ukraine, ostensibly about why the United States should stay out of the affairs of others, may prove problematic for his son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul,”

writes Kevin G. Hall.

Mr. Hall’s remark reveals a surprising ignorance of libertarianism. The political philosophy emphasizes building positive relationships based of free trade and mutual consent and avoids negative relationships predicated on military interventionism and violence.

Where are the *&%#$*@ sanctions against Israel for the genocide happening in Gaza? How come Israel can murder whoever they want?

Israel has murdered over 600 people in a few days time but I am not hearing the U.S., EU or anyone else calling for sanctions against them.

Remember Syria? The lies of a chemical attack last year? Remember how the U.S. and the world were outraged? BUT Israel can get away with $%^&*# murdering everyone they want... and #$%^&*@ Silence from every government!

Israel is not the chosen country of the world in God's eyes. The Jews are not the chosen people of the world in Gods eyes. We All are chosen people, including the Palestinians! They have the right to live their lives in Freedom and liberty without being massacred by Israel!

Enough is enough! If Russia was doing to East Ukraine what Israel is doing to Gaza we would be in WW3 with the U.S. and EU bombing Russia. Yet Israel can do as they please and murder who ever they please.
