Israel’s Treasonous Drone Strike by URI AVNERY

snips: So why did Israeli drones hit a small convoy of Assad’s allies – Hezbollah and Iran? It is very unlikely that they had any aggressive intentions against Israel. Probably they were scouting the terrain in search of Syrian rebels.

The Israeli government and the army did not explain. How could they, when they did not officially admit to the action? Even unofficially, there was no hint.

But there is an elephant in the room: the Israeli elections.

We are now in the middle of the election campaign. Was there, could there be, any connection between the election campaign and the attack?

You bet!

To suggest that our leaders could order a military action to increase their chances in an election borders on treason.

Yet It has happened before. Indeed, it happened in many of our 19 election campaigns till now.

For Some, Life on the Mexican Border Is Absolutely Apocalyptic

If you asked a prepper to describe the most devastating disaster they could think of, they’ll probably mention a global cataclysm, like nuclear war or economic collapse. In truth, the apocalypse doesn’t have to be epic or global in nature. For people living in certain parts of the world, the collapse of civilization has already occurred.

As we speak, there are plenty of regions around the world that are living with tyrannical gangs, resource shortages, and a failing infrastructure; where trying to survive disease, starvation, and violence is a daily occurrence. If you’re a refugee in Syria, or a child growing up in the slums of Haiti, or someone struggling to survive in the ruins of Donbass, it might as well be the end of the world for you.

The Point of My Articles on Lawlessness

So here’s the point of this article — a few have wondered repeatedly, either through the tone of what they email me or through outright request, why I keep writing about the cops and their actions.

Let me point something out for the peanut gallery: My articles about such are in fact a quite-small percentage of those dealing with various forms of corruption in government agencies and private industry.

Where, may I ask, is those people’s outrage directed at the other forms of corruption? Let me give you just a few examples of article titles from a search on Tickers I just ran across the entire archive base using just that one word — “corruption” — as a key.

Inevitable Payback - by Ambassador Craig Murray

In this globalised world, if we launch weapons of great destructive power into communities abroad, incinerating and shredding women and children, we cannot avoid the fact that those who identify with those communities – ethnically, culturally and religiously – will take revenge on people here. If we are lucky it will be revenge on combatants. If we are unlucky it will be on our innocents. But either way, the truth is this. We caused it.

Politicians or central bankers: who runs the world?

Global governance sounds like a good idea. Solving the sorts of “collective action problems” that are an inescapable part of geographically dispersed activities – especially economic ones – is something only some sort of supranational authority can do. Until relatively recently we looked primarily to states to provide the institutional and legal infrastructure that allowed people to conduct commercial relationships with strangers. Now, when economic activities and relationships are increasingly transnational, states cannot provide such a regulatory framework – or they can’t on their own, at least.

SPECIAL REPORT: Notes on Another Clinton Scandal — Was Vince Foster Killed?

Is seems as though the unfolding paedophile scandal connected to Bill Clinton may be delaying… or even preventing… a presidential run announcement by Hillary Clinton, which by all accounts would have been upon us.

Think about… where is the much anticipated “Ready for Hillary” officially-in moment?

I don’t want; I’ll never be ready; but by all accounts, it would have been here by now.

Something is up.

UK internet porn filters up and running as expected -- blocking the websites of businesses and charities

The adult content filters being rolled out by some internet providers under a scheme championed by David Cameron are blocking the websites of businesses and charities and are a “distraction” for parents seeking to protect children from online pornography, claim campaigners. TalkTalk announced this weekend that it would follow Sky and become the second of the UK’s four major internet providers to roll out automatic filters for all its customers unless they specifically ask for them to be turned off. It plans to begin applying the blocks to all users’ accounts next month.

'The man can only ride you when your back is bent': Sarah Palin 'rambles incoherently' in Iowa after teleprompter freezes... a day after she declared an interest in 2016 run

Republican firebrand Sarah Palin is rarely at a loss for words but became unmoored on Saturday in Iowa after her teleprompter froze and left her without portions of her prepared speech.

The 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee flipped through a binder of notes and strung together a series of one-liners – and some of them made little sense.

'The man can only ride you when your back is bent,' she said, as audience members looked at each other quizzically.

'So strengthen it! Then the man can't ride you, America won't get taken for a ride, because so much is at stake.'

Addressing the controversy over the virtues of the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle and the 'American Sniper' film that tells his life story, she shouted: “Screw the left in Hollywood!'

Is the Pentagon’s Andrew Marshall the Leo Strauss of Military Analysis?

Comparing Andrew Marshall and Leo Strauss yields some interesting similarities. Andrew Marshall, one of the longest-serving U.S. civil servants, has recently retired after heading an internal Pentagon think tank, called the Office of New Assessment with direct link to the U.S. Secretary of Defense, for four decades. The 93-year-old strategic thinker, nicknamed “Yoda,” due to his enigmatic assertions and his devoted band of followers in the community of American strategic thinkers, has to date been the Office of Net Assessment’s only director.

Western fawning to shore up Saudi House of Cards

The fawning by the American and British governments toward Saudi Arabia over the death of King Abdullah is for good – albeit unspoken – reasons. The oil-rich feudal kingdom is a lynchpin of Western hegemony in the strategically vital Middle East region. At a time when the region is gripped by instability more than ever, the House of Saud now enters a dangerous period of transition, which presents deep alarm to the Western patrons.

Congress Seeks Netanyahu’s Direction

Showing who some in Congress believe is the real master of U.S. foreign policy, House Speaker John Boehner has invited Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session and offer a rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s comments on world affairs in his State of the Union speech.

Boehner made clear that Netanyahu’s third speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress – scheduled for Feb. 11 – was meant to counter Obama’s assessments.

“There is a serious threat in the world, and the President last night kind of papered over it,” Boehner said on Wednesday. “And the fact is that there needs to be a more serious conversation in America about how serious the threat is from radical Islamic jihadists and the threat posed by Iran.”

Benzer pleads guilty in massive Las Vegas Valley HOA scheme

Benzer, who once owned Silver Lining construction, and 10 others were indicted in the scheme in January 2013, and several months later Benzer was indicted again on charges of evading $1.2 million in personal and company taxes. The charges were related to more than $7 million Benzer and his company obtained from a fraudulent contract with the Vistana condominium development to do construction defect work.

Five of the 10 defendants charged in the first indictment with Benzer, including attorney Barry Levinson, previously pleaded guilty and are waiting to be sentenced.

The sweeping investigation that led to the indictments, spearheaded by the Justice Department’s Fraud Section in Washington, is thought to be the largest public corruption case federal authorities have brought in Southern Nevada. The FBI, Las Vegas police and IRS all played key roles in the long-running investigation.

Bill Maher advises billionaires on which GOP ‘corporate a*s-lickers’ they should support

Bill Maher closed out Real Time on Friday with a “buyers’ guide” for any billionaires looking to support one of the nine prospective Republican presidential contenders.

“The field is more crowded at an earlier time than ever because each of these corporate a*s-lickers wants to sign up mega-rich donors like Sheldon Adelson before one of the other guys in the pack blows him first,” Maher explained, before presenting the upside and downside to each candidate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a centerist progressive, I have a "hug and a punch" relationship with Maher's work, and I did see this bit last night, and it was funny.

However, this segment did an interesting job of exposing Maher's
pathological myopia, which means he is completely blind to the corruption in the party he prefers; and that, intellectually, is a very dangerous place to be.

His absolute darling, Hillary Clinton, is no less staunchly supported by Wall Street and the corporate monied interests than is Barak Obama, his faux populism notwithstanding. Republicans have no exclusive claim here to want as much money as possible from their corporate masters in order to win in 2016 than the Democrats.

As reported last December at Salon.com:

Few political families are closer to Wall Street than the Clintons. Their family foundation has raised millions from financiers and the foundations of big banks, and recently held its annual briefing for donors in the auditorium of Goldman Sachs’s headquarters in Manhattan. Major financial firms are stocked with Clinton alumni. And the Clintons often interact with the titans of finance on the Manhattan charity circuit and during their vacations in the Hamptons. Last month, Mr. and Mrs. Clinton sat at a table with Hamilton E. James, president of the Blackstone Group, and mingled with the billionaire David H. Koch at a benefit for the Wildlife Conservation Society. I’m thinking of Hillary also using the Obama playbook, early-on posturing as some kind of a PRAGMATIC “community organizer” bridge builder between the classes seeking out WIN/WIN solutions. In Obama’s case it turned out to be "community organizing" the Dem Party leadership class with the BIG MONEY ELITE class, and giving the rest of the population a rhetorical snow-job which many still haven’t managed to dig themselves out of into real, justified angry consciousness. Since leaving her position as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton has enjoyed phenomenally well paying speaking engagements such as the ones for Goldman Sachs. Goldman also generously has been using Bill Clinton on its speech circuit. Last month, Hillary Clinton also was pitching the trustworthiness of the biotech industry at their national conference. According to Queally she offered the biotech execs “political advice on how to overcome public opposition to the use of genetically-modified seeds and industrial-scale, chemical-based agriculture.”

To characterise all Republicans as corporate sycophants,eagerly ready to carry out the agenda of their corporate masters, who have purchased their allegiance, and not see Hillary Clinton in precisely the same light, given her and Bill Clinton's strong corporate ties, is completely intellectually dishonest.

So, Bill Maher, aye, there's the rub: no matter who America elects for President in 2016, We the People are screwed.

This is because no matter who gets elected to high office in this country, they are still beholden to the same set of Corporate donors, who put them in office, to carry out their agenda. This is no longer a country of We the People; but Those, the Corporations. And these are the entities which are really crafting foreign and domestic policies. We the people have become expendable.

snip: Black Asphalt lets its 25,000 users compile and share detailed data on private motorists—whether they’ve done anything wrong or not—including addresses, social security numbers, information from traffic stops or interrogations, searches, etc. Information is shared informally without official oversight, and many of the reports end up in federal fusion centers where they can be shared with law enforcement agencies at all levels.

Think mass surveillance is just the wheelhouse of agencies like the NSA? Think again. One of the biggest concerns to come from the revelations about the NSA’s bulk collection of the phone records of millions of innocent Americans was that law enforcement agencies might be doing the same thing.

It turns out this concern was valid, as last week the government let slip for the first time that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) had also been collecting the phone records of Americans in bulk since the 1990s...

The letter, written in 2007, followed a period in which the dictator’s intelligence officers were permitted to operate in the UK, approaching and intimidating Libyan refugees in an attempt to persuade them to work as informants for both countries’ agencies.

A 600,000 Cubic Foot Blimp May Be Spying on You

Ted Baumann
Activist Post

In the summer of 1849, Austrian Field Marshall Joseph Radetzky did something no one had done before: He bombed a city from the air.

His target was Venice, then in rebellion against the Habsburg crown. During the siege, he launched a fleet of unmanned linen balloons, carrying bombs made from canister shot and gunpowder, timed to drop over the besieged city.

Radetzky told Emperor Franz Joseph that the effect on the people of Venice was “frightful.” Indeed, Radetzky’s balloons had done little physical damage, but had a substantial effect on the morale of the city’s defenders. As the 19th century wore on, fear of attack by airships became a constant theme in popular literature. By World War I, the mere mention of the word “Zeppelin” was enough to cause panic in the streets of London.

Kentucky State Senator: 1891 Rule Voids My DUI Bust

A Kentucky state senator accused of driving drunk on the legislature's opening day this month has invoked a law brought in by predecessors who traveled in horse-drawn carriages. Brandon Smith's lawyer filed a request this week to dismiss his DUI charge based on an 1891 provision in the state constitution saying that, barring felonies, treason, or "breach or surety of the peace," assembly members are "privileged from arrest during their attendance on the sessions of their respective Houses, and in going to and returning from the same," WKYT reports.

Obama won’t meet Netanyahu during ‘bizarre,’ ‘historic,’ ‘unprecedented’ visit

White House and State Department won’t meet with Netanyahu on his March visit to address both houses of Congress. Emergency Committee for Israel calls this a snub.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree with Obama on this one. Netanyahu and Boehner are trying to hijack the AMERICAN Congress to serve Israel's agenda. Obama knows that war with Iran means war with Russia and while a degree of conflict is desired to forestall the rise of the Ruble, all-out war will cost millions of lives and there is the real possibility the US will lose.

Israel, like the bankers, doesn't care who wins or loses so long as their personal wealth and power are elevated in the process. Obama, in his final two years in office and no longer dependent on Israeli support for future elections, seems to be looking at the situation from the point of view of the US, and that is a good thing!

So when the Borough of Kodiak, AK (Pop. 13,600) chose to attempt to entirely revamp the zoning code and place greater restrictions on property owners, including a $1,000 fine per violation, they expected there to be little opposition, and little knowledge of the change...

Speaking ahead of a meeting with the prime minister of Japan on Sunday, Benjamin Netanyahu stressed Israel’s need to reduce its dependence on European trade. The arrival of the delegation marked the first time since 2006 that a Japanese prime minister has visited Israel, and highlights the extent to which ties have been strengthening between the two countries since Netanyahu was welcomed in Japan in May of last year.

US Spying in Germany – With Friends Like These, Who Needs Enemies?

A German spy employed by Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) was arrested in Berlin in early July 2014. He was charged with handing out the top secret documents to foreign secret services, namely the CIA. A few days later it was announced that German law enforcement agencies began searching for another US spy that had been stealing information from The Federal Ministry of Defence.

The general secretary of the Social Democratic Party (SPD) Yasmin Fahimi called for the adoption of a list of “effective countermeasures” that would allow Germany to protect its national secrets from being stolen by Washington. Speaking on national TV Yasmin Fahimi said that: “We are not yet another banana republic.”

“The ISIS Leader Does Not Exist”: The US Military’s Stunning Conspiracy Theory Emerges from the Archives

As The New York Times exposed in 2007, Abdullah Rashid al-Baghdadi, the titular head of the Islamic State, according to Brigadier General Kevin Bergner – the chief American military spokesman at the time – never existed (and was actually a fictional character whose audio-taped declarations were provided by an elderly actor named Abu Adullah al-Naima).

Americans at Risk: Obama Is Destroying America’s Ability to Win World War III

In our post-Vietnam era, America vowed to never under appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women in uniform make whose service keeps us safe. However, the nation’s undying gratitude seems to be evaporating. Since Obama has become President, the military has suffered through several years of staggering cuts in funding and tens of thousands of military personnel have been shown the door. Many of these cuts are being visited upon military personnel who were near retirement. After 13 years of being embroiled in war, many soldiers feel that that military has been set adrift and lost all direction and purpose. Upon further examination, it is clear that Obama’s mission with regard to our military is to dismantle and destroy its fighting effectiveness, bit by bit.

By 98 To 1, U.S. Senate Passes Amendment Saying Climate Change Is Real, Not A Hoax

The U.S. Senate has voted overwhelmingly, 98 to 1, to approve an amendment affirming that climate change is real and "not a hoax." The vote came on an amendment to legislation that aims to force approval of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from the Canadian oil sands to the United States.

Congress invites Netanyahu to rebut Obama on Iran, and White House slams ‘breach of protocol’

And on MSNBC today, Noga Tarnopolsky in Jerusalem says that Boehner and Netanyahu were “negotiating behind President Obama’s back” to bring off the invitation.

Boehner’s actual invitation sent out this morning says Netanyahu is being invited by the “bipartisan leadership” of the Senate and House. Says Scott McConnell of Netanyahu’s visit to Congress: “The only question will be how many standing ovations will he receive? I think he had 29 last time around. Should we set up a betting pool on it?”

Hedge funds gave Mugabe $100M for genocide, got platinum mines in return

Zimbabwe's dictator Robert Mugabe unleashed a storm of brutal, genocidal violence after losing the 2008 elections -- and now we know that it was funded by western hedge-funds and banks, led by Och-Ziff Capital Management, the largest publicly traded fund, with assistance from Blackrock, GLG Partners, and Credit Suisse, who raised $100M for Mugabe's weapons and torture-chambers in exchange for a sweetheart deal on the country's platinum mines.

Free Speech Endangered: ‘Anonymous’ Journalist Barrett Brown Sentenced for Exposing Gov’t Corruption

The case of Barrett Brown, alleged to have been a spokesperson for Anonymous and accused of being less than a (First Amendment protected) journalist, remains an important case for free speech in the age of mass surveillance, vigilante hacking, reckless and unconstitutional activities by tech firms tied to government and corporate interests.

Hanging in the balance of this and other related cases is the semblance of freedom that society is to have in the information age.

Public awareness and citizen outrage, along with the facts of the case, likely reduced Brown’s sentence to 63 months, with 30 months served, after he initially faced 105 years in prison under charges that interpreted his behavior in the worst possible light – the same light that has generally been cast upon all dissidents, activists and so-called “extremists” in the age of the Internet, that of a potential terrorist, and a menace and danger to society.

Journalist Barrett Brown Sentenced to 63 Months in Prison; Read his Speech Here

Justin King
Activist Post

Persecuted journalist Barrett Brown plans to use his opportunity to address the court at his sentencing to continue to defend his colleagues that are also being persecuted. The government extorted a guilty plea from him by threatening 105 years in prison: he’s currently facing around eight. All indications are that he signed a non-cooperating plea deal in which he admits only his role.

As Barrett Brown joins the ranks of America’s other political prisoners, the American people need to review his words and ask themselves if this is actually the government they want. Do they want to live in a society where journalists are targeted by federal agents simply because they revealed the truth? A society where the government exercises so much control over the corporate media, that the fifth estate remains silent, while one of their own is carted off to prison?

There isn’t much that can be added to Brown’s statement...

Je suis Charlie or Je suis Hypocrite?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo massacre, social media was filled with predictable tag lines, hashtags, and memes. It was the result of a general public who had briefly tuned in to current events or the fact that there was a country outside of their own expressing “sympathy and solidarity” with the victims of the terrorist attack. All this proved, however, was that the culture creation machine was well at work at producing feel good messages and that a simple Tweet was quite enough to make the majority of people contented that they had done their patriotic duty.

Critical thinking? Not necessary...

The ISIS comedy continues…

Much of the Western world has reluctantly signed up with America’s counterfeit crusade against the radical group. And now Japan has been suckered into the madness...

One can’t help but laugh at the way in which our loathsome leaders try to pull the wool over our eyes time and again.

These cowards in high places have resorted to fantastical lies and clownish frauds to keep us complacent and ignorant.

This latest chicanery should make you grin.

Just hours after Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe made an “anti-terrorism” pact with Israel and pledged $200 million towards the anti-ISIS coalition led by the United States, ISIS released a video threatening to kill two Japanese hostages.

The infamous British-accented Islamic State fighter, who allegedly beheaded a string of hostages over recent months including American photojournalist James Foley, appears in a new video demanding a ransom of $200 million in exchange for the release of the two Japanese captives.

The Intimidation of Greek Voters - Punishment and Regressive Social Engineering by the EU

Here we go again. There is talk of Greece exiting the euro, and the German government has tried to say that it would be no big deal for Europe, then apparently walked back from that position. At the same time, the German government appears to be trying to influence the Greek election scheduled for January 25 by saying that if the left party Syriza wins, a Greek exit will follow. Syriza, led by the popular and charismatic Alexis Tsipras, is not threatening to leave the euro but promises to renegotiate Greece’s unsustainable debt. Syriza also calls for reversing Greece’s devastating austerity policies, imposed by the European authorities, which have brought the country 6 years of depression and more than 25 percent unemployment.

The ‘hasbara’ tweeps who brought down Jim Clancy, and their ties to Israel and the Israel lobby

As the hardly left-leaning Thomas Friedman has explained, even espousing the U.S. State Department’s official policy that settlements are illegal and East Jerusalem is an occupied city can stop a career before it starts.

Veteran CNN journalist Jim Clancy’s resignation this week is one of the odder media fallouts from the Charlie Hebdo Paris attack. On January 7, Clancy got into a late night Twitter spat regarding the French satirical magazine with online adversaries. When he told them they were ganging up on him and practicing “hasbara,” the Hebrew word for “explaining” that describes pro-Israel advocacy often at the behest of the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, they lashed back as if the term were libelous.

“Civilization” of the Neocons

The power of the msm – in combination with the brainless masses works wonders.

Imagine – a bunch of French, CIA and Mossad special forces, one of them or a combination of the three, attack a racist, Moslem-insulting publisher in Paris and a kosher supermarket at another end of town – killing altogether 17 people, notwithstanding the ‘suicide’ of the French police chief in charge of investigating the atrocity.

A million and a half people in Paris take to the streets – about 6 million throughout Europe – all screaming or carrying posters with a maddening, inexplicable “Je Suis Charlie” – depicting an utterly brainwashed mindset, brainwashed for decades with Washington directed mind control.

Prince Andrew Speaks to Sex Slave Allegations at Davos…Or Does He? Where’s the Denial, Andy?

Meanwhile in the past few days, the media blew up once again with stories that the prince would directly address the charges at his keynote speech opening the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

“The Duke is hosting an event for entrepreneurs… and is understood to have decided that the ongoing controversy will be an ‘elephant in the room’ if he does not tackle it head-on… Buckingham Palace has invited a TV cameraman, a photographer and a reporter to record what would be his first public comments about the saga since it began at the start of the month,” The Telegraph reported.

Below is video of the Prince’s “tackling” the controversy at Davos.

Alan Dershowitz denies EVER being around underage women in presence of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein... just one day after 'sex slave' said he would chat with the billionaire during sex acts

A Harvard law professor named with Prince Andrew in a 'sex slave' case today insisted that he never saw anything improper at the home of their billionaire pedophile friend, Jeffrey Epstein.

Alan Dershowitz's claims on Thursday came just one day after accuser Virginia Roberts said in new court filings that the lawyer would chat with Epstein as she performed a sex act on the billionaire.

Speaking in an emphatic interview on the Today show , Dershowitz again accused Roberts of 'making the whole thing up' and said her lawyers are putting 'real' rape victims 'in a terrible position'.

'I was never in the presence of a single underage woman,' he said. 'I never saw [Epstein] doing anything improper. I was not a witness. I was not a participant. And I will prove it.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot prove a negative. A law professor ought to know that!

We’ve Let The Clowns Come Way Too Far

In Tuesday’s State of the Union, Obama said The ‘Shadow Of Crisis Has Passed’, and the one and the only thing I thought was: ‘Good, so now we can tackle the crisis itself?!’. If speeches like the SOTU Tuesday night, and the reactions to it, make anything clear, it’s that the PR guys won the fight against critical thinking. Sure, there are people for whom that shadow has passed, but a president is supposed to be there for all Americans, not just for those who finance his campaigns and those of his successors.

Joni Ernst Received Government Assistance? GOP Senator’s Family Took $460,000 In Taxpayer Handouts

Joni Ernst, the new Republican senator from Iowa who delivered the GOP response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech Tuesday night, called in her address for cuts in government spending and described how her views grew out of her own “simple” upbringing, one in which her family diligently watched ever scarce penny, to the point where she owned only one pair of shoes.

But an investigation of public records by the Washington D.C.-based District Sentinel online news site showed that between 1995 and 2009, Ernst’s family received nearly a half-million dollars in government handouts, payments targeted toward subsidizing farms with taxpayer funds.

Second Canadian Company Completing Tar-Sands Pipeline into the U.S.

For six years, TransCanada has negotiated federal and state laws, and contended with the opposition of environmental organizations and landowners, to build the Keystone XL: a 36-inch-diameter, 1,700-mile pipeline that, if completed, would transport 830,000 barrels per day (bpd) of Canadian tar-sands oil from Alberta, Canada, to the Gulf Coast.

The U.S. State Department has not issued the required presidential permit, which would declare the importing of tar-sands oil in the “national interest.” And the Nebraska Supreme Court just heard oral arguments on a landowners’ lawsuit that could cost TransCanada another year if it has to reapply for its permit in the state.

The stalled process has led one equities analyst to observe that, “Keystone XL doesn’t look like it will ever get fully up and running.”

Iran leader message to the youth in Europe and North America

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has addressed the youth in Europe and North America.

In the name of God, the Beneficent the Merciful

To the Youth in Europe and North America,

The recent events in France and similar ones in some other Western countries have convinced me to directly talk to you about them. I am addressing you, [the youth], not because I overlook your parents, rather it is because the future of your nations and countries will be in your hands; and also I find that the sense of quest for truth is more vigorous and attentive in your hearts.

I don’t address your politicians and statesmen either in this writing because I believe that they have consciously separated the route of politics from the path of righteousness and truth.

L.A. Times Sues Pentagon for Info on Sputtering $40-Billion Missile System

The U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) has spent at least $40 billion on a controversial anti-missile defense system—aimed at thwarting rogue states like North Korea and Iran—which has, so far, registered a test success-rate of less than 50%.

Los Angeles Times reporter David Willman has written in the past about a quick deployment of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense System (GMD), without the usual testing regimen, after President George W. Bush ordered it up in 2002. The expensive remnant of President Reagan’s failed Star Wars system, which has been operational since 2004, has come under close scrutiny as its test record continues to decline.

Vindicated: Gladio B, Paris Terror & ISIS Fakery Admitted

Jay Dyer
Activist Post

Sibel Edmonds has done extensive research on Gladio B and has recently made connections between it and Paris evident in her new interview with James Corbett. What comes to the fore is Turkey’s role in training, arming and exporting radical Islamists. Training took place within the NATO domain, in Turkey and Jordan, whereas the New York Times’ report whitewashes it as petty criminals and illegal immigration int China.

Edmonds projects this region to be the next Ukraine, as this area forms what Pepe Escobar terms, “Pipelinestan.” The “democracy” exporting NGOs will now bring weaponized “freedom,” of course. Sound familiar?...

West Virginia Bill Would Block Unconstitutional National Guard Deployments

Michael Boldin
Activist Post

A bill introduced in the West Virginia House of Delegates this week would block unconstitutional foreign deployments of the state’s national guard troops, effectively restoring the Founders’ framework for state-federal balance on the Guard.

House Bill 2168 (HB2168), the Defend the Guard Act, was introduced by Del. Pat McGeehan (R-Hancock, 1), a former Air Force intelligence officer who did tours in Afghanistan and the Middle East, and cosponsored by ten other delegates. If passed, the bill would block the federal government from deploying West Virginia Guard troops overseas unless there is a declaration of war from Congress, as required by the Constitution...
