Former NSA Chief: Why I'm Worth $1 Million a Month to Wall Street

Former NSA Director Keith Alexander says his services warrant a fee of up to a million dollars, due to a cyber-surveillance technique he and his partners at his new security firm IronNet Cybersecurity have developed, Foreign Policy reported on Tuesday. The claim follows reporting earlier this month that Alexander is slated to head a 'cyber-war council' backed by Wall Street.

Alexander claims that the new technology is different from anything the NSA has done as it uses "behavioral models" to predict hackers' actions ahead of time.

The Seven Pillars of the Matrix

Robert Bonomo

Contemporary baptized, corporatized and sanitized man rarely has the occasion to question his identity, and when he does a typical response might be, “I am product manager for a large retail chain, married to Betty, father of Johnny, a Democrat, Steelers fan and a Lutheran.”

His answers imply not only his beliefs but the many responsibilities, rules and restrictions he is subjected to. Few if any of these were ever negotiated- they were imposed on him yet he still considers himself free.

MILITARY OPERATIONS IN URBAN TERRAIN

From what I'm reading the Israeli infantry is getting it's butt kicked in close quarter fighting. Bombing a densely packed urban area into rubble creates almost impregnable fortress's for the defender and makes the job of the attacking force much more costly.
So the Israeli's either overestimated themselves once again and have reverted to option #2...bomb em back into the stoneage or that was the intent all along!

Folks Out There Have a “Distaste of Western Civilization and Cultural Values”

The Times then goes on to blame terrorism on “religious fanaticism…the anger among those left behind by globalization,” and the “distaste of Western civilization and cultural values” among the global dispossessed. The blinders and self-deception in such a statement are truly mind-boggling. As if corporate globalization, pushed by the U.S. government and its closest allies, with the help of the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF, had not unleashed a tremendous immiseration process on the Third World, with budget cuts and import devastation of artisans and small farmers. Many of these hundreds of millions of losers are quite aware of the role of the United States in this process. It is the U.S. public who by and large have been kept in the dark.

Worldwide Water Shortage by 2040?

New study concludes that water shortages may be a bigger problem than we thought.

Kevin Samson
Activist Post

Fresh water supplies are under assault on multiple fronts. We are seeing the continuing fallout from the droughts in the Western U.S. and Brazil - both are incredibly important areas to the global food supply.

At the same time, corporate hoarding of fresh water is on the rise. Nestle's former CEO clearly stated that water supplies should be privatized and that the right to fresh, clean water is not an essential human right.

Knowing that both the climate and corporate influence are converging to restrict and/or dramatically increase the cost of fresh water, two new reports reinforce that there isn't much time left to find solutions. In fact, for an increasing number of people, water might not be available at ANY cost...

Voting Rights for Everyone is not in the Constitution(Especially Not for Illegal Aliens). Any Questions?

The truth is the privilege to vote is not a right everyone does not have. There are restrictions to who and who cannot vote. Why? To preserve our republican form of government making sure the people who are directly stand to gain or lose have a say in government.

When landowners were the only people allowed to vote. They cast their ballot so they can put public servants in office to ensure the government was not interfering with their livelihoods. The reason is because they were the ones that produced and employed people. They were the engine of the economy. Think about it.

Britain’s Plague of Pederasty and Power

As the bombs drop in Gaza and in eastern Ukraine, another siege has been underway in Great Britain. A sustained barrage of a different kind of bombshell continues to rain down on the centre of power in Westminster…

An epidemic of paedophiles, or to be more accurate, of ‘Pederasts‘, has for decades, freely festered in and around the governing institutions and media and entertainment in the UK.

Past proponents of the sordid practice (image, left, of ancient paedohile folklore), like the part publicly-funded Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), were even paid to lobby for a more relaxed paedophile culture in Britain, including active lobbying to lower the age of consent to 12 years old. Many of those who were involved or helped to facilitate PIE’s presence in Westminster – are still in government, or quango organisations today.

In 'Ugly' Resolution, US Politicians Back Israel's Assault on Gaza

As the civilian death toll in Gaza continues to climb, the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a symbolic resolution—backed by the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee—blaming Hamas for the bloodshed and condemning them for the alleged use of "human shields." But critics say this effort is just another U.S. affirmation of support and impunity for Israel, despite the fact that Israel's fighter jets, attack helicopters, drones, and soldiers are doing the killing.

"The resolution is a rhetorical statement, but it makes things really ugly," Phyllis Bennis, senior fellow at Institute for Policy Studies, told Common Dreams. "This resolution says that the elected representatives of the American people are standing with the slaughter of children and not saying a word about it. When you are doing that while you are paying Israel's bills and providing it protection in the United Nations, you are complicit."

Coming Soon: "Digital Resurrection" of Presidents and Campaign Holograms for 2016

Also known as "telepresence," the use of holograms is on the rise. Instead of Princess Leia, the last 5 years have ushered in real-world holograms that have been used to resurrect dead musicians, to create new musical stars in Japan, and and to transport political analysts into the studio of their choice.

Bloomberg Businessweek is reporting that the company which created a hologram for the successful campaign of India's prime minister is gearing up to do the same for the coming 2016 U.S. elections:

"Several months after Narendra Modi rode a hologram-enhanced wave to electoral success in India, the groundwork is being laid to create virtual versions of Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and anyone else who wants to campaign for office via hologram." ...

Open Letter to the Liberal Party of Canada on Gaza Massacre from Independent Jewish Voices

Dear Liberal Party of Canada,

Whatever one thinks of the Israel/Palestine "conflict" or Hamas or whether Israel is a democracy, we have one simple question: when will you speak out against Israel’s indiscriminate killing of hundreds of civilians, including over 200 children?

The Liberal Party statement is so detached from the reality of what is taking place in Gaza right now that we have to wonder whether perhaps the second half of the statement got lost somewhere.

The Beginning of an End of the Trans-Atlantic Alliance

The basic structural problem is that America is no longer a viable hegemon. It’s been visibly in geopolitical decline for quite some time now and American politicians and policy makers are utterly incapable of coping with this fact. Most of them can’t even accept it let alone handle it competently by minimising American losses. So they keep on flailing about trying do the impossible which is to restore the status quo ante and repair the irreparable. American hegemony or “leadership” to use the term American politicians and policy makers prefer is over.

Why the U.S. Democratic Party Will Die Unless a House Democrat Introduces a Resolution to Impeach President Obama

The only individuals who possess the Constitutional power to introduce a bill of impeachment against the President are the members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Republicans there have said that they won't do it, and the reason is that they won't impeach him for doing things that George W. Bush did -- and that's all they'd be able to prove against him. So: that's understandable -- they don't want to look like fools, especially heading into the 2014 elections. But what about House Democrats? So far, they've not done it because the Party base, the people who elected them, think it would be disloyal. Boy, are they wrong! Democrats impeaching and removing Obama is, to the contrary, the only way to salvage the Democratic Party.

Israel Calls Brazil “Diplomatic Dwarf” And Childishly Brings Up World Cup — Guess Why?

Brazil has become the second nation, the first being Ecuador, to pull their ambassador from Tel Aviv in response to the escalation of violence in the Gaza Strip by Israel Defense Forces.

Diplomatic relations between the two nations have been at odds since 2010, when Brazil recognized a Palestinian statebased on the 1967 borders. After Brazil’s decision, a number of other south American nations followed suit. The international community, aside from certain western nations (the United States included), largely supports a Palestinian state. Israel has been occupying Palestinian land in the Gaza Strip, West Bank, and east Jerusalem for decades.

Regardless of he said/she said arguments about whether Hamas or Israel is more responsible for conflict, the fact remains that Israel is a far more powerful force, and refuses to listen to any terms that don’t include total capitulation by Palestinians.

Outrageous coverup of 1995 OKC bombing continues

Jon Rappoport

Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue claims his brother, Kenneth, was killed during interrogation, in federal custody 19 years ago, because Kenneth resembled the “other suspect” in the OKC Bombing case, John Doe #2.

The FBI claims Kenneth, with “41 wounds and bruises (according to AP),” committed suicide.

Attorney Trentadue states there was another man with Tim McVeigh at the scene of the Bombing on April 19, 1995—and it wasn’t his brother.

The FBI claims McVeigh was alone.

To settle this issue, in 2009, as AP reported, the FBI finally gave Trentadue some security tapes from buildings near the Murrah Federal Building. Magically, the tapes were all blank just before and after the Murrah Building was blown up at 9:02AM on 4/15/95...

Whistleblower wins at Supreme Court, but loses pay.

Edward Lane's Supreme Court victory in a landmark whistleblower case doesn't change the fact he lost his state job and more than half his income while helping convict a state legislator of getting paid for not working.

Lane said other state employees warned him there would be a price to pay for telling the truth about an influential legislator, and for him, that price is more than $50,000 annually. Despite his victory at the Supreme Court, he's still fighting to get his old job back.

"It's the principle of the thing. They know they did me wrong," Lane said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Lane was hired in September 2006 to direct a program based at Central Alabama Community College that helped troubled youths get their lives back in order and obtain a high school equivalency degree.

Judges in charge of allowing NSA data gathering buy Verizon shares

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, or FISA court, has to give its approval every time the NSA wants to mine metadata according to news website Vice.

According to the website, Judge James Zagel, a FISA Court member since 2008, purchased stock in Verizon. In June of this year, Zagel signed off on a government request to the FISA Court to renew the ongoing metadata collection program.

And he wasn't the only one, Judge Susan Wright purchased Verizon stock valued at $15,000 or less on October 22. FISA Court Judge Dennis Saylor has also owned Verizon stock, and collected a dividend last year.

Federal judges are supposed to recuse themselves in cases where they have a financial interest - but FISA proceedings are ex parte, meaning Verizon isn't a party for the NSA requests.

Having lost the propaganda battle over the doomed airliner, Washington seems intent on opening up a second front in the information war, alleging cross-border shelling by Russian forces.But such is American arrogance and deceit, this information war runs a very real risk of inciting a full-on shooting war between world powers.

Meanwhile, the Russian military command has furnished European Union officials in Brussels with a dossier of its own evidence, based on satellite, radar and air traffic control communications that tend to show a completely different set of circumstances over the downing of the airliner. Russia’s information, which is verifiable unlike Washington’s with-held «secret intelligence», strongly suggests that Malaysia Airlines MH17 was taken down by Western-backed Ukrainian military forces under the command of the Kiev regime.

US is buying disputed Iraqi Kurdish Crude Oil

A Marshall Islands-flagged tanker ‘United Kalavrvta’ carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan is hours away from arriving at a U.S. port in Texas, according to ship tracking satellites, despite Washington’s long-standing concern over independent oil sales from the autonomous region. It would be at least the second time a U.S. company has taken delivery of oil that the Baghdad government says was smuggled from the country.

Deconstructing the Zionist View of Gaza’s Horror - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The truth is that outside Israel, Washington, D.C. and various other Zionist strongholds, David Harris’s worldview is crumbling. And, as the numbers of those who share his viewpoint shrinks, other counter-groups, such as the boycott Israel movement, grow in number. Sooner or later a tipping point will be reached and then things will change and probably do so rapidly. On that day what will David Harris do? Blame it all on anti-Semitism? Take residence at the top of Masada? Or grudgingly seek to make his peace with the Palestinians?,

Now, according to tax documents released this week, we learn that the Tor Project received over $1.8m from the US government in 2013. Of that, $256,900 came directly from the State Department, with an additional $555, 413 coming from Internews Network, which the documents confirm as a “pass-through” organization for State Department money.

On the parlous state of the (Canadian) prime ministerial belfry: batty, or what?

I don't know about you, but I always took a certain comfort in the notion Harper was a cynical master of manipulation, a politician for whom no wedge was too harmful or divisive to be shunned. This is bad, of course, and both immoral and dangerous, but it contains the comforting kernel of thought that no one as bright as Harper is could actually fail to see the glaring contradictions in the stuff he says. This always offered the faint hope he didn't actually believe everything he was saying, and therefore might be philosophical if voters indicated they disagreed.

Naturally one hoped his petulant and furious reaction to the complicated situation unfolding in Ukraine reflected only the availability of another potential wedge issue here in Canada. That is, a chance to capture the Ukrainian-Canadian vote. Perhaps, one hoped, it didn't reveal his actual thoughts on the unstable and dangerous crisis in which there are plenty of nasty players and victims on all sides.

However, after reading Harper's little magnum opus about how Putin is all bad, and the current Ukrainian government -- neo-Nazi enforcers, foreign fascist mercenaries, the illegal coup that brought it to power and everything else -- is nothing but good, I'm not so sure.

Egypt destroys 13 more Gaza tunnels

Egypt has demolished 13 more tunnels between the country and the Gaza Strip, which has been under an Israeli blockade for the past seven years.

The army said on Sunday that it had destroyed the tunnels in the Sinai Peninsula, but did not say when they were demolished.

The tunnels are the only lifeline for Palestinians living under the Israeli siege and Egypt has so far laid waste to 1,639 of them.

Since the ouster of Egypt’s former president Mohamed Morsi last July, the Egyptian military has launched a campaign to destroy the tunnels, preventing the people in Gaza from bringing in most of their basic goods like construction materials, food, and fuel into the coastal enclave, which has been hit by Israeli airstrikes since July 8.

RT’s article, “90% of aircraft destroyed at Tripoli airport, Libya may seek international assistance,” reported that:

"Libya is considering a deployment of international force to re-establish security amid a flare-up of violence in Tripoli which saw dozens of rockets destroy most of the civilian aircraft fleet at its international airport."

"'The government is looking into the possibility of making an appeal for international forces on the ground to re-establish security and help the government impose its authority,' a government spokesman, Ahmed Lamine said in a statement.'"

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17

Eric Draitser
Activist Post

The downing of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 (MH17) is a tragedy that will be remembered for years to come. However, the way in which the West has distorted the facts about what happened is no mere accident. Rather, it is a clear attempt by Washington and its allies and proxies to capitalize on the incident, using it as a weapon in their continued belligerent and aggressive policies toward Russia.

At least Liam Halligan gets it

‘While the Fed has begun ‘tapering’, slowing down the rate of its de facto money–printing, the scale of QE remains vast, some $45 billion a month. That’s driven the absurd ‘bad news is good news’ mantra that still dominates the thinking of investors on Wall Street and other major stock markets. Weak economic numbers make it more likely the Fed will relent and slow down or even reverse its tapering, turning up the funny–money dial, and thus stock prices, even more. Forget economic growth and forget corporate earnings. It’s all about the Fed.

The Disgusting Way the Clintons Earned Their Millions

Hillary Clinton is decidedly out of touch with the American public.

While many Americans work very, very hard to make an honest living, the Secretary of State along with her husband have earned over $100 million since they left The White House in 2000.

The real scandal here isn’t that the former First Lady and her husband are so wealthy. Rather, it has everything to do with how they made so much money in one of the worst economies in decades.

The former President and his wife claimed that upon entering The White House, they had the lowest net worth of any presidential family in the past century.

When they left, they claimed they were equally poor.

Nearly 300,000 suicides in India so far from GMO crop failures

The Western media is steeped in denial about the true damage being caused by genetically modified (GM) crops, especially in the developing Third World. But despite the lies you may have heard from mainstream news sources, nearly 300,000 Indian farmers have committed suicide since 1995 as a direct result of mounting debt and crop failures associated with GMO crops, and mainly cotton crops that were forcibly converted to patented, transgenic varieties owned by Big Biotech.

A report by India's National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) revealed that, between 1995 and 2011, 290,740 farmer suicides had taken place due to economic failure, poverty and bankruptcy caused by GMO adoption. And in the years since that time, for which there is no official data, there have more than likely been thousands of additional suicides, bringing this number to at least 300,000 and possibly higher.

Former Vanguard Tax Lawyer Files Whistleblower Suit Alleging Mutual Fund Giant Became Low-Cost Leader by Evading $1 Billion in Taxes

A former employee of Vanguard Group Inc. has sued the mutual-fund company in New York, saying it has avoided paying federal and state taxes and sheltered hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

The civil suit, unsealed in the Supreme Court of New York on Friday, accuses the Malvern, Pa.-based firm of operating an illegal tax shelter for nearly 40 years, thus avoiding $1 billion of U.S. federal income tax and at least $20 million of New York tax over the last 10 years, according to a copy of the complaint. The suit was filed by David Danon, whose LinkedIn profile describes him as an associate counsel at the company from August 2008 to June 2013. Mr. Danon is requesting all costs of filing the lawsuit as well as 15% to 30% of any money recovered by the state and local governments, including all proceeds of any related action.

Netanyahu’s Bloody Calculations

Unless the underlying issues are addressed, the next ceasefire will not stop this tragic cycle. The stage will be set for another round, when Israel will mow the lawn again. Absent regime change in Israel, the cycle will continue until and unless political leaders in the U.S.-led West summon political courage they have not displayed and acknowledge that the objectives the current Israeli government is pursuing are not in their own country’s interests, or even in Israel’s.

As the sequence of events preceding the current round of violence makes clear, Netanyahu saw as the biggest threat to that strategy the reconciliation agreement between Hamas and Fatah, the dominant party in the Palestinian Authority. If the agreement held, excuses for not being serious about negotiating a comprehensive peace agreement and establishing a Palestinian state to replace the occupation would become too flimsy to maintain.

Britain dies of shame - by Stuart Littlewood

“We have spoken to Israel for more than 18 years and the result has been zero. We have signed agreements here and there at various times and then when there is a change in the government of Israel we have to start again from the beginning. We ask for our life and to be given back our Jerusalem, to be given our state and for enough water to drink. We want to be given more opportunity to reach Jerusalem. I have not seen Jerusalem since 1990.

Does Russia (And Humanity) Have A Future? — Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian government and Europe need to look beyond Washington’s propaganda, because the reality is much worse.

NATO commander General Breedlove and Senate bill 2277 clearly indicate that Washington is organizing itself and Europe for war against Russia.

The US Senate’s Russian Aggression Prevention Act, about which I reported in my previous column, does even more mischief than I reported.If the bill passes, which it likely will, Washington becomes empowered to bypass NATO and to grant the status of “allied nation” to Ukraine independently of NATO membership. By so doing, Washington can send troops to Ukraine and thereby commit NATO to a war with Russia.

Palestinian Resistance: an icon for those who long to live free - by Susan Abulhawa

Palestinians have done it all. We choose resistance, always, in all its forms. We resist because it is our right. Because we are the indigenous people of the land and we have nowhere else to go or belong. Because our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and on and on are buried in this soil. Because we are right and our cause is just. We resist passively and actively. We resist violently and non-violently. It is our legal and moral right to resist with whatever means available to us against what has been accurately called “incremental genocide.”

Rescuing the Petrodollar and energy war - the real reason for the US provoking revolution in Ukraine

Gaspipe Diplomacy: How Ukraine Set Off a New U.S.-Russian Energy Fight
By Sylvia Todorova on Jul 23, 2014

As WhoWhatWhy readers know, the real reasons surrounding a conflict are often buried under the headlines and rhetoric. So it shouldn’t come as any surprise that, behind the scenes, oil and natural gas are driving a big piece of the U.S. response to Russian involvement in Ukraine.

If you want to understand where the rubber meets the geopolitical road in the Ukraine war, you need to learn about the 1,480-mile South Stream natural gas pipeline.

Federal guidelines lay out loose criteria for terrorism watch list

US officials have adopted procedures that allow virtually anyone to be designated a “suspected” or “known” terrorist by intelligence agencies, subjecting them to increased monitoring.

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” produced by the National Counter-Terrorism Center (NCTC), is cryptically-worded and vague, intended to leave government officials with ample leeway to interpret guidelines designating someone a “terrorist.” A copy of the document was obtained by the Intercept.
