Israel and US Hit Self-Destruct

Hiding War Crimes Behind a Question

Doesn’t Israel have a right to defend itself? Though it is hard for a question to be wrong, this is a dead wrong question even though it is the heart and soul of Israel’s defense of its attack on little Gaza.

It is also the basis of the U.S. assessment of the ongoing moral disaster. The Senate voted unanimously to answer the question in the affirmative while ignoring all other piercingly relevant circumstances. Never has a misplaced question had such prestige and high-level cachet.

Stanford biologist warns of early stages of Earth's 6th mass extinction event

Activist Post

The planet's current biodiversity, the product of 3.5 billion years of evolutionary trial and error, is the highest in the history of life. But it may be reaching a tipping point.

In a new review of scientific literature and analysis of data published in Science, an international team of scientists cautions that the loss and decline of animals is contributing to what appears to be the early days of the planet's sixth mass biological extinction event...

Washington Is Escalating the Orchestrated Ukrainian “Crisis” to War — Paul Craig Roberts

Despite the conclusion by US intelligence that there is no evidence of Russian involvement in the destruction of the Malaysian airliner and all lives onboard, Washington is escalating the crisis and shepherding it toward war.

Twenty-two US senators have introduced into the 113th Congress, Second Session, a bill, S.2277, “To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes.” https://beta.congress.gov/113/bills/s2277/BILLS-113s2277is.pdf The bill is before the Committee on Foreign Relations.

Note that prior to any evidence of any Russian aggression, there are already 22 senators lined up in behalf of preventing further Russian aggression.

Police Investigate Drone 'Strike' on Space Needle

This was probably someone innocently testing his new toy, but can we rule out a test-run of something nefarious, in light of Seattle Police Department request that people not use their cell phones for social media during this coming Saturday's annual Torchlight Parade?

Has the Globalist Tactic of Discrediting and Destroying The Opposition Lost Its Effect?

Now it is the year 2014. Now the western powers have a new villain to demonize. That is Vladamir Putin the President of Russia. He is a real enemy to the banking establishment of the west. The same Bankers own most of all media in newsprint, radio and television. They control the information they broadcast to the listeners and viewers. Now you can see why the media with the government is demonizing President Putin calling him a tyrant,a Nazi and a Dictator because they are accusing him of being the very thing the west is now trying to discredit him because he is a threat to the power structure of the globalist. Russia forming the B.R.I.C.S alliance is a rival to the western monopoly which can bring the system down.

Human Rights Watch Findings on Gaza Massacre

At this point in Israel’s massacre in Gaza, almost 800 Palestinians have been slaughtered, overwhelmingly civilians, including 24% children. 34 Israelis have been killed, all but 2 of them soldiers.

Today, Israel bombed a marked UN school, for which it had the GPS coordinates, killing 15 and wounding at least 150 people. This is a repeat of Israeli terrorism against UN humanitarian facilities in Gaza in Israel’s 2009 Gaza massacre.

Is Israel’s Operation Protective Edge Really About Natural Gas?

While many articles have debunked the myth that Israel is acting out of “self-defense,” very few have attempted to establish why Israel is continuing its assault on Palestine through Operation Protective Edge, aside from the supposition that Zionists have a fanatic penchant for drawing Palestinian blood. Behind the operation, behind the mass Israeli and U.S. propaganda attempting to justify the massacre, and behind the death of every child in Gaza is a conflict rarely discussed, an imperialist conflict and a contradiction that rests on Israel’s ambitions to appropriate and profit from Gaza’s natural gas resources.

QUARANTINE: A Possible Local Government Solution For Brazoria County. A Deterrence That Might Keep illegel Unaccompanied Minors Out of Manvel Texas?

I might be wrong about this solution to Washington arrogance. For those thinking about making the journey north. If there are reports being locked down in a building under quarantine because the people they went along with have symptoms of Tuberculosis. Since they are exposed being around a carrier. it might take months before they see day light might make them think twice before they take the trip north.

The Keynesian Money Printers Repudiated Again: June New Home Sales Swoon

New home sales during June really hit the skids, posting a 8% decline from May and a 11.5% drop from last June. In whole numbers, the print came at a paltry 406,000 annualized rate compared to Wall Street expectations of 475,000.

The interesting thing is not simply that the Keynesian Cool-Aid drinkers who pass for Wall Street economists got it wrong again. Actually, as can been seen clearly in the chart below from the Wall Street Journal, the June 2014 number for new home sales was exactly the same as the 400,000 number posted right after the financial crisis in the fall of 2008.

Two NH cops fired for excessive force against prisoner

Two police officers who used excessive force against a prisoner in 2009 have been fired. Two others have been punished as well. The Seabrook, NH incident was caught on camera and the video was released by the victim in January 2014.

Michael Bergeron posted the video to YouTube, which depicts cops from the small New England town slamming a local man face-first into a cinder block wall as they attempt to move him down the corridor of a jail facility. A surveillance camera near the scene of the incident also caught one officer discharging his pepper-spray at the man while he is on the ground and just barely out of sight. Bergeron, who was 19 at the time of the incident, wrote in the video description that he was the prisoner who was attacked.
