David Swanson: Worth Fighting For?

I was not sure I would like a book called Worth Fighting For by a former soldier who walked across the United States to raise money for the Pat Tillman Foundation. The website of that foundation celebrates military “service” and the “higher calling” for which Tillman left professional football, namely participation in the U.S. war on the people of Afghanistan and Iraq. Rather than funding efforts to put an end to war, as Tillman actually might have wished by the end of his life, the foundation hypes war participation, funds veterans, and to this day presents Tillman’s death thusly...

Pure Manipulation, $1.3B of Paper Gold Dumped Onto Illiquid Market

There is one entity that has proven time and time again that they are quite capable of making money no matter which way the market moves.

That entity are the banks.

As we know, most markets are manipulated in some degree, but none more so than the commodities market.

Within the commodities market, some of the most rampant and blatant manipulation takes place in the precious metals market.

Manipulation that once was considered “conspiracy”, has now been proven true.

Unfortunately, even though the manipulation has been exposed, it still continues on.

Frightening People into Silence

“Chilling” is the word lawyers use to describe governmental behavior that does not directly interfere with constitutionally protected freedoms, but rather tends to deter folks from exercising them.

Classic examples of “chilling” occurred in the 1970s, when FBI agents and U.S. Army soldiers, in business suits with badges displayed or in full uniform, showed up at anti-war rallies and proceeded to photograph and tape record protesters.

Big Banks Hit with Monster $250 Billion Lawsuit in Housing Crisis

Ellen Brown
Activist Post

For years, homeowners have been battling Wall Street in an attempt to recover some portion of their massive losses from the housing Ponzi scheme. But progress has been slow, as they have been outgunned and out-spent by the banking titans.

In June, however, the banks may have met their match, as some equally powerful titans strode onto the stage. Investors led by BlackRock, the world’s largest asset manager, and PIMCO, the world’s largest bond-fund manager, have sued some of the world’s largest banks for breach of fiduciary duty as trustees of their investment funds. The investors are seeking damages for losses surpassing $250 billion. That is the equivalent of one million homeowners with $250,000 in damages suing at one time...

Russia warns of retaliation over new Western "blackmail" sanctions

MOSCOW, July 17 (Xinhua) -- The Russian Foreign Ministry said here Thursday that Russia would retaliate "asymmetrically but painfully," after the United States and the European Union (EU) announced fresh sanctions against the country.

"We are not going to tolerate blackmail and reserve the right to take measures in response," the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The statement said the sanctions, imposed by the U.S. Treasury Department Wednesday and targeting individuals and major Russian firms in the financial, energy and arms sectors, are a "primitive attempt to take revenge for the fact that events in Ukraine are not unfolding in line with Washington's scenario."

Check Mating Washington in its Own Backyard with BRICSIANSE

The United States and its closest allies have attempted to isolate Russia and President Vladimir Putin from the world stage. As a result of Western support for the Ukrainian regime that came to power through violence in Kiev, actions taken by Western powers against Russia have included expelling Russia from the G-8 of capitalist powers, the freezing of the assets of Russian government officials and Russian banks, and imposing travel bands on Russian citizens.

However, Putin has check-mated U.S. President Barack Obama in the American president’s own backyard.

The interest of Iran, Argentina, Nigeria, Syria, and Egypt in joining BRICS may soon see the group's acronym become «BRICSIANSE». Such a development would triumph the nations of the world that refuse to take orders from Washington...

Dems’ Plan B fails: Bill to reverse Hobby Lobby ruling can’t clear filibuster

Democrats’ first effort to make political hay out of the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision fell short Wednesday, victim to a GOP filibuster that leaves the justices’ ruling in place and likely shifts the issue to voters in November.

Only three Republicans joined with Democrats to back a bill to overturn last month’s ruling, which gave owners of closely-held corporations the right to opt out of providing insurance for contraceptive coverage for employees if they held a valid religious objection.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Nevada Democrat, said the failure to push the bill over the line will reignite charges of a GOP war on women.

“Senate Republicans continue to demonstrate that they are out of touch with women across America,” he told reporters after the vote.

Russia: US sanctions revenge for Ukrainian failure, Moscow may retaliate

Russia considers the latest package of sanctions against it issued by the US as revenge for the failure of Washington’s schemes in Ukraine and blackmail. Moscow reserves the right to retaliate.

“As for sanctions, they usually have a boomerang effect, and without a doubt will force US-Russian relations into a corner,” he explained. “This is a serious blow to our relationship. And it undermines the long term security interests of the US nation and its people.”

EXCLUSIVE: Released Alien from Border Crisis Arrested for Alleged Murder, Kidnapping in Texas

LUBBOCK, Texas—An illegal immigrant who was released by U.S. authorities with a Notice to Appear has been arrested for the alleged murder of a woman and kidnapping of children on U.S. soil. The alleged crimes occurred after the man was released.

The arrest was first reported by the Associated Press (AP), but Breitbart Texas has exclusively confirmed that the man was part of the Obama Administration’s catch and release policy for family groups from Central America.

Rep. Massie on censored 9/11 documents: “It challenges you to re-think everything”

Lynch (D-MA), , along with families who lost loved ones on Sept. 11, 2001, urged the president to declassify 28 pages from the 9/11 congressional investigation report, providing more information to the general public.

On Friday Rep. Massie commented on his Facebook page:

“Before we involve ourselves in #Iraq, Congressmen and their constituents need to know more about the events leading up to 9/11. Understanding what enabled this tragedy to occur is fundamental to drafting a strategy for the Middle East.

Globalist Mouthpiece Calls For The Entire Planet To Adopt The ‘National Identification System’ One European Country Has Established

Would you like to have a digital identity card that is automatically issued to you at birth? In one European nation, residents use such a card when they go to the hospital, when they do their banking, when they go shopping and even when they vote. This card has become so popular that this particular European country actually plans to start issuing them to millions of non-citizens all over the planet who request them. Never heard about this? Neither had I before this week. The Economist, a well-known mouthpiece for the global elite, is calling for the entire planet to adopt this “national identification system” that the little nation of Estonia has adopted. The Economist is touting all of the “benefits” of a “national identification card”, but are there dangers as well? Could adopting such a system potentially open the door for greater government tyranny than we have ever known before?

The National Security Agency continues to withhold all portions of two documents about the 1961 death of Secretary-General of the United Nations Dag Hammarskjold in Ndola, Northern Rhodesia – now Zambia. The Agency continues to withhold this historically significant material despite a FOIA appeal from the National Security Archive that provides specific examples of previously released SIGINT (Signals Intelligence) documents from the 1950s and 1960s and explains why the Agency should not treat fifty-year-old documents as though they were created today.

Detroit residents continue protest to remain in homes

Standing on West Grand Boulevard last week, Detroit resident Sheree Bass held up a sign that said, “Stop the racket. Pay the taxes.” Underneath the phrase, she had taped a copy of the Wayne County tax statement for the home she’s lived in for years. Total amount due: $7,939.11

The problem, Bass says, is she doesn’t own the home located near Eastern Market. It’s actually owned by Oakland County developer Peter Barclae.

Bass is currently locked in a legal battle in Wayne County Circuit Court, along with a dozen other Detroiters who say Barclae is trying to sling homes they should’ve owned by now. Barclae, of West Bloomfield Township, contends otherwise.

John Boehner's Lawsuit Against President Obama Probably Won't Succeed in Court—But It Doesn't Have To

A poll released earlier this week found that a majority of Americans believe House Speaker John Boehner’s recently announced lawsuit against the president is not legitimate, and agree that it is "political stunt."

That’s half right. The suit is probably best understood as a sort of formal protest measure. It’s not that Boehner doesn’t want to win, nor that the suit lacks any serious legal grounding—but it’s less about scoring a binding legal victory than it is about drawing attention to the Obama administration’s casual approach to implementing and enforcing the law. The goal is to channel the Republican party's many frustrations with the president into an official forum that focuses on one of the clearest instances of executive branch overreach.

Judge in terrorism-related case raised $3 million for Israel, lawyers say

A federal judge who has raised more than $3 million for a pro-Israeli charity should not be allowed to handle the terrorism-related trial of a Palestinian immigrant, lawyers for a Southwest suburban woman say.

Activist Rasmieh Odeh, 66, of Evergreen Park, is due to stand trial in Detroit in September on charges she hid the 10 years she spent in an Israeli prison from federal authorities when she emigrated to the U.S. in 1995.

Odeh was convicted by the Israelis of two terrorist bombings — one of which killed two people — in Jerusalem in 1969, but also failed to acknowledge that fact when she successfully applied for U.S. citizenship in 2005, the feds said when they arrested her in the Chicago-area in October.

10 Problems Genetically Modified Foods Are Already Causing

by Joe Martino

Genetically modified foods (GMOs) have been getting a bad rep for years now as studies continue to come out revealing the dangerous nature of GMOs. Whether it be the harm they cause to people eating them, or the environment, many believe GMOs have no place in our world.

On the flip side, many state there are no real concerns we have to worry about yet when it comes to human consumption, and in many ways GMOs help to feed the world. The ‘feed the world’ claim has always been refuted by pointing to the amount of food waste that exists as well as the current farming methods available that could feed the world without GMOs.

Nonetheless, people are not sold on GMOs and they have good reason. Here are 10 problems genetically modified foods are already causing in our world. No need to keep waiting for the science, it’s already in...

Throughout our lives and throughout our culture, we are conditioned to rally around concepts of false division. We are led to believe that Democrats and Republicans are separate and opposing parties, yet they are actually two branches of the same political-control mechanism. We are led to believe that two nations such as the United States and Russia are geopolitical enemies, when, in fact, they are two puppet governments under the dominance of the same international financiers. Finally, we are told that the international bankers themselves are somehow separated by borders and philosophies, when the reality is all central banks answer to a singular authority: the Bank for International Settlements (BIS).

And thanks to Edward Snowden, we now have some startling new evidence of what really goes on behind the scenes. According to newly revealed documents, British spy agency GCHQ is manipulating online discussions, infiltrating the computers of specific targets, purposely destroying reputations, altering the results of online polls, and using Twitter, Facebook and YouTube for propaganda and espionage purposes. If people don’t start getting outraged about this now, the governments of the western world are going to see it as a green light to do even more. Eventually, it might get so bad that we won’t be able to trust much of anything that we see on the Internet.

Red Capitalism’s Porous Veins: Why Beijing’s Rulers Struggle With The Deluge Of Flight Capital

The Wall Street Journal carried a story yesterday indicating that China’s major banks have halted an experimental program, sanctioned by the country’s central bank, that helped citizens transfer large sums overseas. Among other places, this huge tide of flight capital ended-up in affluent west coast housing markets from Vancouver to San Diego.

Specifically, Chinese buyers last year scooped up $22 billion of US homes—a figure which was up a whopping 72% over prior year. Moreover, the average purchase price was nearly $600,000 or more than 3X the US median price, and overwhelmingly the purchases were all-cash. So this makes for some interesting statistics. Upwards of 40,000 Chinese buyers came barreling into the top 5% of the US housing market bearing bundles of greenbacks.

The Queen, Philip, Charles and others want to know why no-one picked up a phone to tell them a child abuser was being allowed in royal homes and meeting with senior royals and their families …

Court documents show Swallow is charged with 11 felonies and two misdemeanors. Five are second-degree felonies for a pattern of unlawful activity, accepting gifts, compensation or loans when prohibited, receiving or soliciting bribes/bribery by a public official and false or inconsistent material statements. Six third-degree felonies include receiving or soliciting bribes/bribery by a public official, tampering with evidence, misuse of public money and obstructing justice. The two Class B misdemeanors are for falsifying/atlering government records and failure to disclose conflict of interest/comply with reporting.

Court documents show Shurtleff is charged with 10 felonies. Seven are second-degree felonies for a pattern of unlawful activity, receiving or soliciting bribes and accepting gift, compensation or loan when prohibited and improper use of a employees position. Three third-degree felonies included tampering with a witness, tampering with evidence and obstructing justice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From Wikipedia: In January 2013, the United States Department of Justice and FBI investigated Swallow's role in an alleged scheme to help indicted businessman Jeremy Johnson avoid a lawsuit by the FTC.[11] According to Johnson, who was indicted for mail-fraud charges related to his internet business iWorks, Swallow attempted to broker a deal to bribe Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid with $600,000 through lobbyist Richard Rawle.[10]

In May 2013, Marc Sessions Jenson (who was convicted in 2008 of defrauding millions from investors) turned receipts over to the FBI he claims show that in 2009 he gave Swallow free meals, massages, golf outings and rooms at a gated Newport Beach villa.[12]

In September 2013, the United States Department of Justice notified John Swallow's lawyer that they would not be filing charges in their investigation.

Congress again snorts 'Israel dust' on Gaza

The Israel Lobby is at it again, prowling the halls of Congress to give out its required doses of “Israel dust” where they must witness it being snorted by their helpers, similar to American prison guards making sure their charges swallow their daily mood control drugs to keep them docile.

We have all been here before, watching our Congress grovel to a foreign lobby like trained circus animals. It actually has become a competition to see who can grovel the most. The snorting recipe for this week is the usual blank check support to Israel for anything it wants to do to the Palestinians simply by claiming it is a self defense measure and invoking America's long time pledges to defend Israel. But this is a blatant fraud. The Zionists are the attackers, as they always are.

Vladimir Putin Interview with Russian news agency ITAR-TASS on the eve of BRICS summit in Brazil

The forthcoming summit’s theme is Inclusive Growth: Sustainable Solutions. Therefore, we will consider the most urgent issues in global politics and the economy, as well as the BRICS (Brazil, Russia,India,China,South Africa) development.

How can this be achieved in practice?

First of all, to develop cooperation in the UN in every possible way, persistently counteract individual states’ attempts to impose on the international community the policy of displacing unwanted regimes and promoting unilateral solutions to crisis situations. We propose to create a mechanism of regular high?level consultations between our foreign ministries on different regional conflicts to agree, where possible, on common positions and joint efforts to ensure their political and diplomatic settlement.

Check Mating Washington in its Own Backyard with BRICSIANSE

The United States and its closest allies have attempted to isolate Russia and President Vladimir Putin from the world stage. As a result of Western support for the Ukrainian regime that came to power through violence in Kiev, actions taken by Western powers against Russia have included expelling Russia from the G-8 of capitalist powers, the freezing of the assets of Russian government officials and Russian banks, and imposing travel bands on Russian citizens.

Russia and China appear determined that Ukraine and Georgia will be the «line in the sand» for any further encroachments by George Soros- and CIA-led «R2P» revolutions in the Eurasian space. It is also clear that Putin outsmarted Obama in his own backyard.

What if Hamas dumped all their rockets in the sea tomorrow?

West Bank Palestinians DO NOT fire rockets, yet there is no sign of an end to their misery and oppression.

The slaughter of innocents is necessary to stop Gaza rocket-fire. That’s what Israel says. “This isn’t about rockets from Gaza,” says Unite.

Unite the Union “calls on the UK government to demand the Israeli government halt its military action and to make it clear that should it fail to do so then a move for international sanctions will be launched within the United Nations Security Council and the European Union.”

Gowex Chief Orchestrated Sham Hiding Lies in Plain Sight

Gowex founder Jenaro Garcia fabricated clients and contracts, listed a defunct company as a holding company for his stake in Gowex, and put numbers in reports that didn’t make any sense, even as matters of basic arithmetic.

It was all so brazen that Gotham City Research LLC, the short-seller whose July 1 report exposed the sham, even began to question whether its conclusion -- that Gowex was overstating revenues -- was off-base.

“We were looking for things that might undermine our view,” Gotham founder Daniel Yu said in an interview last week in New York. “It was like that movie ‘Groundhog Day’ where we’re waking up, expecting to see a different outcome, but each day validates our thesis.”

Garcia owned up to the deeds, resigning from the company on July 5 and saying on Twitter he made a “confession” to court and would cooperate with investigators.

Misbehaving Bankers Threaten System, BOE’s Bailey Says

Bank of England Deputy Governor Andrew Bailey said banks’ misconduct risks undermining the entire financial system following increasingly large fines.

Misbehavior has “broader consequences,” Bailey, who leads the central bank’s Prudential Regulation Authority, said in an interview in London today. “The risk of loss of confidence in the integrity of financial markets is very, very big. This threatens a vital underpinning of the system.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the public is catching on that the whole financial system is a con-game.

Is the IRS scandal the ultimate test of the Constitution's checks and balances?

In doing so, U.S. District Court Judges Emmet G.Sullivan and Reggie Walton have set up what may prove to be the ultimate test of the Constitution's checks and balances system.

U.S. Drug Firms Seek Inversion Deals to Evade Taxes

Updated, 7:42 p.m. | Health care companies, like many big American corporations, have a long list of complaints: regulation, global competition and, chief of all, taxes.

But increasingly, drug makers and medical device companies have found a way to self-medicate.

By buying a smaller overseas competitor and reincorporating abroad — a maneuver called inversion — health care companies are extricating themselves from the American tax regimen. Their new international domiciles also give companies easier access to overseas cash and make additional inversions more attractive.

Though nothing about the industry makes it more suitable for inversions than, say, food or technology, a number of factors have combined to make health care the focus of the inversion wave that is sweeping corporate America and annoying regulators in Washington.

Professor compares California’s ‘one-party rule’ to Mexico PRI

LOS ANGELES (Legal Newsline) – Low voter turnout, increasing corruption and a lack of fresh ideas all can be contributed to California’s “one party rule,” according to a recent column.

On Tuesday CityWatch, a Los Angeles opinion and news website, posted a column authored by Joel Kotkin, a fellow in urban studies at Chapman University, in which he compares California’s current political climate to that of Mexico’s 40 years ago, when the country suffered under a one-party dictatorship – Partido Revolucionario Institucional.

Kotkin

In his column, “One Party Rule is No Party in California,” Kotkin writes that while the reformed Mexico used to be hobbled by slow growth, soaring inequality, endemic corruption and dead politics, California, in contrast, was considered a model American state, with a highly regarded Legislature, relatively clean politics, a competitive political process and a soaring economy.

What if Hamas dumped all their rockets in the sea tomorrow?

“There will be no peace and no justice unless the root causes of the conflict are addressed. The roots of the conflict lie in Israel’s decades-long illegal occupation of the West Bank, the building of illegal settlements in the occupied territories, the forced take-over of Palestinian homes in East Jerusalem, and the effective establishment of an apartheid system that systematically removes the most basic human rights of Palestinians.”

George Soros and the Shadow Party Behind Crises to Take Down America

The Hungarian-born billionaire and currency speculator who considers himself a messianic figure was voted “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country” by respondents to a poll published by the Human Events newspaper in 2011.

“George Soros is the most dangerous man in the world because, just like the crazy megalomaniacs in old fifties movies, he is deceiving everybody into believing that he is altruistic, when in fact, he is using his Open Society/Shadow Party to undermine the very fabric of American society,” the newspaper explained.

Hillary Clinton’s Corporatist Party

In 1992, a 44-year-old attorney made the following remarkable assertion: “For goodness’ sake, you can’t be a lawyer if you don’t represent banks.”

The attorney was Hillary Clinton. She made the statement to journalists during her husband’s first campaign for president. Her legal representation of a shady savings and loan bank while working at a top corporate law firm in Arkansas (and her firm’s relations with then-Gov. Bill Clinton) had erupted briefly into a campaign controversy.

Ron Paul: What’s Missing In Immigration Debate

One thing we can be sure about: as Republicans and Democrats tussle over “reform” bills, more money will be thrown at the symptoms produced by past bad policies instead of addressing the real causes of the current crisis. The president’s $4 billion supplemental request to address the issue is a costly mix of welfare and enforcement that will do very little to solve the problem because it treats the symptoms instead of the cause. Real reform means changing a failed approach, and until that happens we can count on more expensive mistakes.
