Pesticides, GMOs and Corporate Control: The Poster Child is Monsanto but Neil Young is the Main Act

GMO Free USA hosted the GMO education tent. Diana Reeves, GMO Free USA Executive Director, says Young’s inclusion of her organisation on his national tour brings the GMO issue to music fans who might have otherwise not known about it. It also gave the organisation the chance to connect with many farm belt residents.

She says:

“I heard story after story from residents who were concerned about increasing rates of cancer. ‘My father has cancer. My aunt has cancer. My neighbors have cancer’, said one concertgoer. At another venue we met a couple – he was a cancer survivor and his very pregnant wife was battling cancer. It was heartbreaking. We heard stories from farmers who have no choice but to grow GM crops because they are surrounded by neighbors who are growing them. We were told that they were certain they would be sued by Monsanto if they grew non-GMO because contamination by pollen drift would be inevitable. But they’re afraid to speak out. These GMO growers are their neighbors. Their friends. Even their family members.”

American musicians are ‘scared sh*tless’ their careers ‘will be destroyed’ if they speak up for Palestinians — Roger Waters

For years now we have admired Roger Waters’s moral courage, his refusal to back down from his criticism of Israel even if his career is torched by his witness. And I have heard rumors of that career-blackmail being levied at the legendary musician who never met his father or grandfather (because they died freeing Europe) and who burst into rock and roll fame without even wanting that when he was in his early 20s because he was political before he was musical.

Those rumors are confirmed; now this committed soul has burst out in the English press with a description of the vicious smears the Israel lobby has used against him, which he has overcome, in an effort to get others to join him in speaking out against Israeli apartheid. Pointing out that British musicians have supported BDS– Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign– Waters says that American artists are “scared shitless” against such actions because their careers “will be destroyed.” But we need them desperately, as we did in Vietnam days.

BEX Alert!!! - "Suspected 9/11 mastermind’s defense wants prosecution to step down, alleges destroyed evidence"

Suspected 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s defense team is calling for the entire prosecution at Guantanamo Bay to relieve themselves of their duties after suspicions arose that they secretly destroyed evidence in the long-running case.

They also believe the entire case against Mohammed should be dismissed, based on the alleged actions of the prosecution, which the defense labeled as “at least the appearance of a collusion.”

“Now, and indeed over other matters previously, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s military commission is fatally flawed,” lead defense attorney David Nevin told the Guardian.

Doctors Kill 23 Times More People Than Guns Kill

We may debate the authors’ horrifying claim that doctors and hospitals kill a quarter million Americans every year, but there is no doubt that they do kill a substantial number. And that number is almost certainly far in excess of the number killed by gun-wielding criminals.

A Perfect Storm of Legal Misery For The Richly Deserving Hillary

Mrs. Clinton’s folks are preparing for the worst. They have leaked nonsense from “U.S. officials” that the feds have found no intent to commit espionage on the part of Mrs. Clinton. Too bad these officials — political appointees, no doubt — skipped or failed Criminal Law 101. The government need not prove intent for either espionage or for lying to federal agents. And it prosecutes both crimes very vigorously.

11 Signs That The U.S. Economy Is Rapidly Deteriorating Even As The Stock Market Soars

So far in 2016, three members of my own extended family have lost their jobs. Businesses are going under at a pace that we haven’t seen since 2008, and this means that more mass layoffs are on the way. -- We can certainly be happy that U.S. stocks are doing okay for the moment. May it stay that way for as long as possible. But anyone that believes that this state of affairs can last indefinitely is just being delusional.Also : so even though half the country is flat broke, I guess we are all supposed to do our patriotic duty by going out and running up huge balances on our credit cards... What a joke...

In Hearing on Internet Surveillance, Nobody Knows How Many Americans Impacted in Data Collection

The Senate Judiciary Committee held an open hearing today on the FISA Amendments Act, the law that ostensibly authorizes the digital surveillance of hundreds of millions of people both in the United States and around the world. Section 702 of the law, scheduled to expire next year, is designed to allow U.S. intelligence services to collect signals intelligence on foreign targets related to our national security interests. However—thanks to the leaks of many whistleblowers including Edward Snowden, the work of investigative journalists, and statements by public officials—we now know that the FISA Amendments Act has been used to sweep up data on hundreds of millions of people who have no connection to a terrorist investigation, including countless Americans.

HILLARY THE SPY? - UPDATED INFO!

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

A Central Banker Officially Loses It: “We Are Magic People”

What is most disturbing is that he was dead serious when he said it, which is important, because it is finally obvious that central bankers are neither gods, nor magicians, nor even doing "god's work on earth", but plain and simple psychopaths. At least the magician he was right about one thing: "we give to the markets."

Raw Venezuela: Looter Burned Alive, While “Streets Filled With People Killing Animals For Food”

The situation in Venezuela is reaching all out chaos... not only was an accused mugger burned alive on the streets, but people are reportedly eating stray animals to survive:

Ramón Muchacho, Mayor of Chacao in Caracas, said the streets of the capital of Venezuela are filled with people killing animals for food.

Through Twitter, Muchacho reported that in Venezuela, it is a “painful reality” that people “hunt cats, dogs and pigeons” to ease their hunger. People are also reportedly gathering vegetables from the ground and trash to eat as well.

Consolidated Power, The End of Independent Business: “What This Reset Means”

In our highly interdependent system in the West in which more than 80 percent of the population has been domesticated and is psychologically incapable of self-reliance, it is very likely that a disruption of normal supply chains and services would result in considerable poverty and death. Such a threat would invariably lead frightened and unprepared people to demand increased government controls so that they can return to the level of comfort they have grown accustomed to within the grid.

Proof Positive that David Cameron, the BBC, Guardian, New Statesman and Entire Establishment are Peddling Blatant Untruths in the Kuenssberg Affair

FYI Kuenssberg petition is a petition to sack Tory propagandist Laura Kuenssberg from her role as BBC Political Editor

Here are all the comments on the scrapped Kuenssberg petition. You know, the petition David Cameron condemned in the House of Commons today because it was accompanied by a storm of sexist abuse? Well, here are the comments in their entirety and out of 35,000 people who signed, there is virtually nobody whose comment can be seen as remotely sexist. See for yourselves. Can you spot the one sexist comment I found?

The comments show the petition was overwhelmingly signed by decent, concerned people who were sometimes quite eloquent. Also that the petition supporters are gender balanced and several specifically identify as feminists, and as supporters of the BBC. But neither Cameron, the Guardian and mainstream media nor 38 Degrees itself has any qualm about writing off all these decent citizens as a misogynist rabble.

Big Pharma’s Big Lies: Why Painkiller Addiction Is at Epidemic Levels in the US

The fact that opioid painkillers have addictive properties is not a secret.

The conundrum is that a growing population that corresponds with economic growth, and the birth rate is falling dramatically.

The U.S. is experiencing a baby lull that looks set to last for years… a sharp drop in child bearing that started with the onset of the recession in 2007 […] more-worrisome signs that the U.S. may not soon return to its pre-recession average of about two babies for every adult woman. Some demographers have pared their forecasts for future births because an expected post-recession baby boom has been smaller than anticipated.

Clinton IT staffer's hiring caused confusion among department managers

Bryan Pagliano, the former State Department IT specialist who managed Hillary Clinton's private email server, was hired by the State Department as a political appointee -- an unusual arrangement within his department that caused confusion among some managers.

A new set of emails from early 2009, which were released to the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of an ongoing Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, reveals conversations between top State Department officials about how the Bureau of Information Resource Management (IRM) could go about hiring Pagliano as an IT specialist under this arrangement.

Pagliano had previously worked as an IT director for Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.

Networks Censor Latest Hillary E-Mail Bombshell, Instead Hype Anti-Wrinkle Gel

All three networks on Tuesday morning censored the bombshell news that all the e-mails from Hillary Clinton’s top IT staffer, the man who set up her private server, are missing. This is despite a combined eight hours of air time on ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS This Morning and NBC's Today. Instead of covering this important development, these same programs devoted eight minutes and 38 seconds to a new anti-aging gel. Not exactly the most pressing story.

Götterdämmerung: Gillian Schutte’s skulduggery

This is where it gets interesting. Guess who is the presiding High Court Judge that on 30 April 2016 gave judgment that the whole sordid affair needs to go to trial? That’s correct children – Judge Mabel Jansen. Although no date has been set it is not presumptive to assume that Judge Jansen would be the presiding judge in that trial as well.

Are you putting two and two together? The maths are quite simple. Kidi Amin is faced with the prospect of a judge presiding over a trial which he hasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of winning. Seeing that she did not accede to his demands that the whole matter be dropped – and that he now has to go to trial – one can rightly assume that he views her as an enemy. And what better way of ridding oneself surreptitiously of an enemy than by having the enemy withdraw or be withdrawn due to scandal.

Judge Jansen was widely condemned after her purported comments went viral on social media at the weekend.

When Excess Is A Virtue

It’s good news that Donald Trump is doing so well in the American political primaries. He is vulgar, abusive, nasty, rude, boorish and outrageous. He is also saying what he thinks and, more important, teaching Americans how to think for themselves again. No one could be a bigger contrast to the spineless, pusillanimous and underdeserving Barack Obama, who has never done a thing for himself and is entirely the creation of reverse discrimination. The fact that he was elected President–not once, but twice–shows how deep-set the rot is and how far along the road to national impotence the country has traveled.

'Justice For Jack' Woman Angrily Cross-Examines Sheriff, He Turns Into A Sheepish Sniveling 3rd Grader

The characterization of this exchange is mine alone, but I couldn't resist but post this clip from the local Adams County Idaho Council meeting. Jack Yantis is the 62-year-old rancher killed by Adams County, Idaho deputies last November 1. 'Justice for Jack Yantis' advocates attended a council meeting earlier this week, and one woman read a prepared statement. But what occurred after that is even better. Adams county Sheriff Ryan Zollman was present at the meeting, and afterwards, she had a chance to question him in an impromptu, spontaneous exchange. She asks tough questions about the recently leaked police memo which stated that Deputy Brian Wood was increasingly unstable, had explosives, and threatened "if cops are involved shots will be fired." This guy looks like a sheepish kingergardner who is in trouble, getting scolded by the teacher.

Fired professor, James Tracy, sues his University

I’ve read his court filing. It appears to me that Tracy’s own union took his side and then betrayed him. It appears to me that the University cooked up a fake reason for firing him: he didn’t send in a vaguely worded form they wanted him to sign.

But the real reason had to do with Tracy’s view about Sandy Hook: that it was a hoax. It doesn’t matter whether you or I or anyone else agrees with his assessment. What matters is his inherent right to express his view.

The University doesn’t want to grant Tracy that right. The University is worried about press blowback and “reputation.” Apparently, shutting down free speech doesn’t affect the University’s standing in this day and age. It’s an easy sell.

A crisis package of $25 trillion was thrown at the financial system. This is what the likes of JP Morgan and Goldman told the Fed they had to do to save the bank(-ers). Ten years later the world financial system is in a mess that is exponentially greater. World debt has exploded, most governments are running deficits and the financial system is balancing dangerously on the edge of a precipice. $8 trillion of government debt is now negative and $16 trillion is below 1%.

BEX ALERT - Released Emails Show Use of Unclassified Systems Was Routine

Whatever the disposition of the investigation, the discussion of troops to Bahrain reveals how routinely sensitive information is emailed on unclassified government servers, reflecting what many officials describe as diplomacy in the age of the Internet, especially in urgent, fast-developing situations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times is not allowing comments on this piece of crap, or I would make the comment that unsecured servers are "routinely" used only for unclassified documents. Even the example given involves documents that were not classified at the time they were sent by conventional email, yet the New York Times is trying to equate this to Hillary's situation, to try to defend her.

Simple logic here...

The job of Secretary of State involves handling a lot of classified information. Hillary never used her secure government email account. If she didn't use her private server to handle the classified material (as she claims) ... then what server DID she use? Is there a third system out there?

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

Six Issues That Are Agenda 21

By Tom DeWeese

Every day, in meetings at all levels of government, representatives of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), planning groups, and federal agents surround elected representatives and insist that their policies have nothing to do with international agendas. They regularly publish reports and rail against anyone even mentioning the names Agenda 21 or the new Agenda 2030. “No, no, no,” they insist. “Those people are just crazy conspiracy theorists. Ours is just a local plan for our community.”

Elected representatives are often confused. Issues and policies suddenly appear in front of them with sample, ready-made legislation. And then the unending pressure begins for them to pass it. There is confusion, uncertainty and there is the herd mentality to pass legislation. And it’s passed without knowledge of its origins, its purpose, and especially a lack of understanding of its consequences. “Just do it,” goes the mantra.

Clinton aide Cheryl Mills leaves FBI interview briefly after being asked about emails

Near the beginning of a recent interview, an FBI investigator broached a topic with longtime Hillary Clinton aide Cheryl Mills that her lawyer and the Justice Department had agreed would be off limits, according to several people familiar with the matter.

Mills and her lawyer left the room — though both returned a short time later — and prosecutors were somewhat taken aback that their FBI colleague had ventured beyond what was anticipated, the people said.

Investigators consider Mills — who served as chief of staff while Clinton was secretary of state — to be a cooperative witness. But the episode demonstrates some of the tension surrounding the criminal probe into possible mishandling of classified information involving the leading Democratic presidential candidate. In the coming weeks, prosecutors and FBI agents hope to be able to interview Clinton herself as they work to bring the case to a close.

Is Donald Trump Following in Thomas Jefferson’s Footsteps?

What was presented by the mainstream media as a party was simply a manipulated coalition of individuals willing to present themselves in certain ways to provide a convenient political institution.

The Republican Party contains a quasi-libertarian element along with a “conservative” and “fundamentalist” element. There was absolutely no similarity between these groups except that they were necessary to fill out the “big tent.”

The Democratic Party is no more real than the Republican one.

Cops Charge Scottish Man With Hate Crime for Training His Girlfriend’s Pug to Do a Nazi Salute As a Joke

In what was supposed to be a joke aimed at his girlfriend, a 28-year-old Scottish man trained her pug to do a Nazi salute and has been charged with a hate crime for it after posting the resulting “offensive material” online (aka: improper use of electronic communications under the Communications Act 2003).

DIVESTING FROM THE PRISON PROFITEERS YOU SUPPORT EVERY DAY

3M, the company best known as the maker of Scotch tape, holds numerous contracts with prison systems. (Photo:anonphotography.com; Edited: LW / TO)Incarceration has become a big business in the US, which is now home to the world's largest prison population. Amid a growing dialogue about mass incarceration, the dubious ethics (and horrible track records) of private prisons have generated widespread outrage.

But the privatization of prison facilities by for-profit corporations is just the tip of the iceberg. Every aspect of incarceration provides an opportunity for someone to make a buck. State and federal governments spend billions to run prisons, jails and detention centers. Each one is like a small city, requiring infrastructure, services and upkeep -- all of which can be outsourced, including:

Design and construction of prisons;

Furniture, from guards' desks to the metal bunks prisoners sleep on;

Prisoners' medical and mental health care;

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At a time when Sweden is closing their prisons, because they focus almost completely on rehabilitation, the US's prisons are doing horrifically, with terrible recidivism rates.

And private prisons are among the worst of the worst, in terms of prisoners serving their time, getting out, and re-offending; they should be outlawed, but somehow, generous campaign contributions at state and federal levels keep them open, with their populations growing and festering.

Electric, hybrid and other eco-friendly cars fill the air with as many toxins as dirty diesels say scientists

Electric, hybrid and other eco-friendly cars fill the air with as many toxins as dirty diesel vehicles, scientists have found.
The greener alternative produce more tiny particles from tyre and brake wear because batteries and other parts needed to propel them make them heavier.
It happens because when eco-cars accelerate or slow down the tyres and brakes wear faster, in turn producing more particulates. More particles are also whipped up from the road surface because of the extra weight.
These extra emissions are almost equal to the toxic particulates saved by reduced engine use, according to Jonathan Leake at The Sunday Times.
The research, led by Peter Achten and co-author Victor Timmers of Edinburgh University, is published in the journal Atmospheric Environment.
Achten said: 'We found that non-exhaust emissions, from brakes, tyres and the road, are far larger than exhaust emissions in all modern cars.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the allegedly "eco-friendly" vehicles aren't quite so ecologically friendly, yet; DANG!

Here’s PROOF Hillary lied about being hacked

In other words, the email server that contained the former president’s personal files – including, perhaps, his White House doodles – was the same as the server Clinton used for storing classified government information.

And by releasing the doodles, Lazar lent credence to his claims that he repeatedly broke into the Clintons’ personal server. And Hillary Clinton’s failure to protect classified national security information should lead to criminal charges.

Lazar, apparently, wasn’t the only one to break into the server. He told Fox News last week he saw that the server had been accessed by at least 10 different IP addresses all over the world.

Hillary Clinton has tried to dismiss the hacker’s claim, but the new revelation gives the hacker serious credibility.

Emails From Hillary Clinton’s IT Director at State Department Appear to Be Missing

The State Department said today it can’t find Bryan Pagliano’s emails from the time he served as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s senior information technology staffer during her tenure there.

Pagliano would have been required to turn over any official communications from his work account before he left the government. State Department officials say he had an official email account, but that they can't find any of those records he would have turned over and continue to search for them.

“The Department has searched for Mr. Pagliano’s email pst file and has not located one that covers the time period of Secretary Clinton’s tenure,” State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said today, referencing a file format that holds email.

FLASHBACK - VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

‘Mistaken’ Release of Glyphosate Report Raises Questions Over EPA’s Ties to Monsanto

The House Science, Space and Technology Committee is questioning why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) posted and then suddenly pulled its highly anticipated risk assessment of glyphosate, the main ingredient in weedkillers such as Monsanto’s flagship herbicide Roundup.

On April 29, the EPA’s Cancer Assessment Review Committee published a report online about glyphosate concluding that the chemical is not likely carcinogenic to humans. However, even though it was marked “Final” and was signed by 13 members of CARC, the report disappeared from the website three days later.

The EPA said that the report was “inadvertently” released.

Even now, almost precisely 10 years since David Kelly’s last journey, we are still learning just how extraordinary and inexcusable the behaviour of our rulers was – both towards him, and in the wider cause, defending the Iraq war, for which he was outed and died. On July 18 2003, I did not consider myself a shockable person; I was an experienced, sceptical journalist with, I thought, a realistic idea of how politicians, intelligence officers and civil servants behaved. But over the months and years that followed, my views, and those of most of the country, changed. To borrow the famous words of David Astor over Suez, we had not realised that our government was capable of such folly and such crookedness.

1 dead, 3 injured: Man reportedly shouts ‘Allah is great,’ stabs people at train station near Munich

A man who allegedly killed at least one and injured three more at a train station in the town of Grafing near Munich, while reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar,” had no Islamist motive, officials said, adding the suspect won’t stand trial as he has mental health issues.

The incident took place early on Tuesday. German media cited local witnesses who claimed that the knife-wielding man started attacking people at the station, shouting “Allahu Akbar” and “infidels.”

The attacker was arrested on the spot.

The earlier reports stated the man was a refugee. Now, to protect the immigration/NWO agenda, he's got "mental issues."

White Helmets NGO: A “Rescue And Assist” Operation Under Guise Of Human Rights

By Brandon Turbeville

With the recent events surrounding hospital bombings (real and imagined) in Aleppo, growing attention is now being paid to the “human rights NGO” known as the White Helmets, a supposed Syrian organization that focuses on rescuing and providing medical care to injured civilians in Syria. According to the Western media, the White Helmets are knights in shining armor, willing to risk life and limb to save innocent people from the fangs of the evil Assad.

A more realistic examination of the White Helmets, however, provides us with a much different view of the organization...

Secret Meetings Between Israel, Saudi Officials Reveal Close Relationship, Mutual Interests

By Brandon Turbeville

After a series of secret meetings between Saudi and Israeli officials were exposed by a select few of mainstream press outlets, both the Saudis and the Israelis are now becoming more open about the relationship between the two governments. Although, for years, GCC countries like Saudi Arabia have held a public position of hostility toward Israel, many researchers and observers have long been aware of secret cooperation between the two and that public statements were largely designed to provide a cover of Arab identity and self-interest for the benefit of public consumption.

After all, the two share common goals when it comes to Iran, Hezbollah, and Syria and all have the common ally of the United States...

In 2013, after initial reports emerged that the Iran deal was negotiated earlier than the White House let on, Rosen confronted Nuland’s successor Jen Psaki. But when Rosen went back to pull the video of that confrontation for a Fox News segment years later, he noticed that his questions had been edited out.

While it is still popular to claim that the United States has never defaulted on its debt, this is a myth. The US has been forced to default a couple of times throughout history, the last of which being when Richard Nixon’s closed the gold window. By cutting the ability of foreign governments to redeem US dollars for gold, America was allowed to pay back past debt with devalued fiat money. This form of default has long been a popular option for governments with debt obligations it can’t or won’t honor.

Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

CNN Labels Gary Johnson The ‘GOP’s Trump Alternative’

It’s finally happened. The media has gotten something right! They’re no longer ignoring third party candidates and have started to give them the respect they deserve. Instead of assuming that voting for a third party is a spoiler they’re including candidates in their coverage as legitimate alternatives to Trump and Clinton. During his most recent appearance on CNN, Gary Johnson was labeled the ‘GOP’s Trump Alternative’. Although there might have been a question mark at the end it’s still putting the thought into the minds of voters that they do have another choice. Being legitimized in this way is a major step forward for the Libertarian Party.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the real reason President Obama has his knickers in a twist about the TTIP getting signed quickly is to protect megabanks from cheated customers!!

If you want to know by whom politicians are owned, look for the national and international corporations which are protected by legislation for which they are shilling.

For example, in the Homeland Security Act, pharmaceutical manufacturers were "held harmless and indemnified" for any harm their vaccines could cause; with Obama, it is the TTIP, which he has championed, which dissolves all national sovereignty; puts corporations in charge of all laws; and protects megabanks from lawsuits by cheated customers!!

Price for Witnessing Against War

Fr. Daniel Berrigan’s funeral was being live-streamed Friday, as I started to write this, which seems only fitting. Dan’s witness and writing have been a constantly rechargeable battery for my moral compass.

Live-streaming (arranged by America magazine) was the next-best thing to being at the funeral in person. And it brought back memories of getting shoehorned into West Baltimore’s St. Peter Claver church in early December 2002 for an equally moving celebration of the life of Dan’s younger brother, Fr. Phil Berrigan.

Homilist Fr. Steve Kelly, S.J., who has spent more than a decade in this or that prison for nonviolent resistance to war began with some Berrigan-style Irish humor: “Let members of the FBI assigned here today validate that it is Daniel Berrigan’s funeral Mass of the Resurrection, so they can complete and perhaps close their files. ‘Death has no dominion!’ to quote Daniel’s friend William Stringfellow.”

On April 21, 2016, under the cover of darkness, a U.S. military plane landed on Sarajevo international airport.[1] The mysterious guest was greeted by Osman Mehmedagi?, the chief of the Bosnian intelligence agency - the Intelligence-Security Agency.

The first reports in the Bosnian and other regional media were that the mysterious visitor came unannounced.[6] It later emerged that this was only a surprise for some, but hardly for all Bosnian politicians and high-level security officials. After all, this is a standard CIA operational procedure. It’s called ‘compartmentalization’: in the know are only those who need to know. The CIA director John O. Brennan's visit to Sarajevo was actually carefully planned and scheduled at least two months in advance at the time of Mehmedagi?'s first visit to the U.S. Brennan flew into Sarajevo directly from Riyadh where he accompanied the U.S. President Barack Obama and attended a meeting of the regional Arab security heads.

Mind Pollution: The Promotion of Sexual Perversion on National TV

Some would argue that this is not about the pollution of minds. They would maintain that there is no deliberate attempt to undermine the morals of a virtuous nation, still less the morals of its innocent minors. It’s more fundamental than that.

This is simply a question, they would point out, of a bunch of dirty-minded writers and degenerate TV executives getting together to produce buckets of sleaze for an increasingly debased public. Depravity, they would tell us, is not being systematically manufactured: it is the natural flatulence of filthy minds. It is the foul atmosphere around us, the very air we breathe. We are filthy, stewed and marinated in filth like dung flies, and filth is what we naturally produce.

Let’s examine this interesting thesis.

BFP Exclusive- What is Cooking in the Bosnian Pot? CIA Director’s Visit to the Balkans

There are some credible sources who claim that the U.S. intentionally turned the blind eye to these comings and goings of radical Islamists. These sources also directly implicate Michael Hayden, who later became the head of both the NSA (1999-2005) and the CIA (2006-2009), as the key person who let this happen under his watch.[4] At the time, in the early 1990s, Hayden was the director of U.S. European Command Intelligence Directorate which was operationally responsible for the Balkans. Hayden occasionally accompanied the chief U.S. negotiator Richard Holbrooke on his missions to Croatia and Bosnia. Holbrooke's dealings with the warring Bosnian factions can best be described as Machiavellian. His priority was to insure the permanent U.S. military presence in the Balkans at any price, no matter how this would impact the possibility of the long-term, sustainable peace and stability in the region.

Why Did NBC News Sit on Explosive Story About Clinton's Alleged Hacked Email Server For Weeks?

According to the NBC News press release, Lazar was interviewed by reporter Cynthia McFadden from a Bucharest prison, where he admitted to also hacking into Clinton’s private e-mail account.

So, it stands to reason that McFadden conducted the interview before he was extradited to the U.S. which means NBC News was sitting on these explosive claims for more than one month. Which raises the question, why would a major news network sit on such an explosive allegation — especially when the claim directly relates to a presidential candidate and the biggest story the 2016 presidential election cycle?

The delay cost them what would’ve been a huge exclusive....We reached out to NBC News for clarification and a spokesman declined to comment at this time.

How Obama’s Lawyers “Legalized” the War on Terror

The legal architecture of Obama’s version of the “war on terror” is as resistant to adjudication as was Bush’s more ramshackle structure. How does a defendant prepare a defense when he is denied accusatory evidence on the grounds that it entails ‘state secrets?’ How does a defendant in a non-terrorist case protect himself from the prosecution’s exploitation of evidence obtained without a court warrant when its source is kept secret because it was the fall-out from a national security surveillance case? How does a plaintiff gain standing to bring suit when the courts agree with the Executive’s assertion that the individual in question must demonstrate having suffered personal damage? How does some American citizen on Obama’s ‘kill list’ appeal for redress when required to make a personal appearance in a United States court — transit to which might make him vulnerable to murder by American authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The conclusion here is glaringly, and painfully, obvious; President Obama is just as much a criminal warmonger as was his predecessor, and no less accountable to the warlords of the military/industrial complex, to keep the madness of perpetual wars going.

PANAMA PAPERS LEAK: SAUDI KING FUNDED NETANYAHU’S RISE TO POWER

Isaac Herzog, member of the Knesset and Chairman of the Israeli Labor party, revealed that the Saudi king has been overtly influential in the election campaign that saw Netanyahu get elected.

“In March 2015, King Salman has deposited eighty million dollars to support Netanyahu’s campaign via a Syrian-Spanish person named Mohamed Eyad Kayali.

The money was deposited to a company’s account in British Virgin Islands owned by Teddy Sagi, an Israeli billionaire and businessman, who has allocated the money to fund the campaign Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu”, Herzog cited from a leaked Panama Paper.

Project Fear in full force: Now Cameron warns of Russia threat & WAR if Britain leaves EU

DAVID Cameron adopted a Churchillian stance as he made an impassioned plea to keep Britain in the European Union - and warned the UK had to deal with a "newly belligerent Russia".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us say that Britain leaves the EU. And let us say that Russia, for whatever reason, starts invading Europe from the east.

How long does it take to sign a treaty of alliance, Dave?

Veterans turn on the PM for using Second World War soldiers in his bid to keep Britain in the EU

VETERANS have turned on the Prime Minister for including Second World War heroes in a ‘scaremongering’ video to try and convince Britain to stay in the EU.

Major-General Julian Thompson, who led British forces in the recapture of Port Stanley in the Falklands capital, told Mail Online: “I respect them hugely, they’re the guys who bought our freedom, they fought for us and we should respect what they think, but I'm afraid they’re wrong because the world’s moved on.”

And he blasted the PM: “I think Cameron is wrong to put around this scaremongering.

“He talks about isolationism [but] Britain was not isolationist before the Second World War – we joined a French and Russian alliance and fought the Germans and we joined it 10 years before the First World War started.

“I’m afraid Cameron has forgotten his history or was fast asleep getting his history lessons.”

FBI Makes MASSIVE Move Against Hillary Clinton! It’s Happening!

Unfortunately, President Obama may be working behind the scenes to prevent criminal charges being filed. Hillary Clinton must be reminded that she is not above the law.

And considering the many laws she has broken, the American people deserve to learn the truth about Hillary before the elections in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have no confidence that the FBI will do their job. The FBI have been the protectors of the Clintons going all the way back to the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster and Hillary can blackmail the FBI with that to force their cooperation in more coverups. Already, we see the propaganda coming out that regardless of what Hillary did, she had no intention of doing wrong, therefore she is innocent. That is ridiculous. You probably don't intend to run a red light and kill a pedestrian, but if you do, you will probably go to jail.

In any event, Title 18 includes exposure of state secrets through negligence as a prosecutable crime and we have Hillary's June 17, 2011 email to Jacob Sullivan ordering him to strip the classification headers off of a document and send it to her via non-secure means. It doesn't matter what was in the document or even if Jacob did it nor not. The giving of that order is a violation of Title 18 Section 793.

Hillary's giving that order means she knew she was in possession of classified documents, at a time when the only email server she was using was her private server.

Title 18 also provides that anyone in violation of any section of Title 18 is BANNED FROM PUBLIC OFFICE!

All Angles Covered: Is The EU Completely In The Pocket Of The Biotech Industry?

“IN LESS THAN A FORTNIGHT, EU MEMBER STATES WILL TAKE A DECISION ON THE RE-APPROVAL OF GLYPHOSATE. GENIUS [LOBBY FIRM] IS WORKING TO GET THIS TOXIC HERBICIDE RE-APPROVED BY COMMUNICATING THE INDUSTRY’S MANTRA THAT GLYPHOSATE IS SCIENTIFICALLY PROVEN SAFE, SPONSORED BY MONSANTO, DOW AND SYNGENTA. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY ARE BEING PAID BY GERMAN AUTHORITIES AND EU-FUNDED PROJECTS TO WORK ON ISSUES THAT ARE CLOSELY RELATED TO GLYPHOSATE AND THAT ARE KEY TO THE INTERESTS OF THE SAME CORPORATIONS. PUBLIC AUTHORITIES USING THE SAME LOBBY CONSULTANCIES AS THE CORPORATIONS THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO REGULATE IS HIGHLY PROBLEMATIC…” – CORPORATE EUROPE OBSERVATORY

On 9 May, Corporate Europe Observatory posted an article on its website that described how Genius, a lobby consultancy firm based in Germany, has been employed to distort the debate on glyphosate in favour the biotech industry.

VAXXED is now playing in Los Angeles

The explosive new documentary exposing the true story of CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson is now playing at select theaters in Los Angeles, the country's second-largest media market (see here and here).

In the film, VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe (see the trailer here), Dr. Thompson discusses his role in fabricating scientific data at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention so that he and others could hide established links between vaccines and autism – "links that the entire lying media complex denies exist at all," writes Natural News editor and author of the upcoming book Food Forensics Mike Adams, because "the entire mainstream media is largely funded by pharmaceutical interests."

Counter-Propaganda, Russian Style

Listening to the western corporate media one would get the impression that the Kremlin controls all the Russian media with an iron grip and that not a word of criticism of Russia, never mind Putin himself, is ever allowed. So bad is this situation that the AngloZionists are now funding new “information” efforts to counter-act the Russian propaganda machine and bring some much needed information to the Russian people who clearly do not realize that they are being lied to and deprived from any truthful or even alternative information.

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth.

First, while some Directorates of the KGB have been renamed and reorganized, the Directorate in charge of dissidents, “other thinkers” and assorted ideological “enemies of the state” (the 5th Main Directorate) has been disbanded completely. So there is no “ideological police in Russia”.

The Real Problem — It’s government itself

Throughout history the government has served as a vehicle for the organization of hatred and oppression, benefiting no one except those who are ambitious and ruthless enough to gain control of it. That’s not to say the government hasn’t, then and now, performed useful functions. But the useful things it does could and would be done far better by the market.

Jack Yantis Killer Responds To Secret Police Memo

Brian Wood, one of the two Adams County, Idaho Deputies who killed rancher Jack Yantis on November 1, 2015, has responded to the leak of the secret police memo which painted him a bad light. Wood claims "The man who fabricated the information in the law enforcement bulletin lost his job a couple weeks later." Wood does not name the man or even attempt to prove his claim. Even if the man did indeed "lose his job," it's far-fetched that the unnamed mystery man lost his job as a result of the ATL (attempt to locate) memo. The Ada County Idaho sheriff, in response to the leak, certainly never said that anything in the memo was untrue. Matter of fact, Wood's own boss, Sheriff Ryan Zollman, said "Yes, that was back in January" and that "I think Deputy Wood is doing much better now."

When They Murdered JFK, Did they kill America, too? (Paul Craig Roberts)

Kennedy intended to pull the US out of Vietnam once he was reelected. He intended to break up the CIA “into one thousand pieces” and curtail the military-security complex that was exploiting the US budget... And that is why he was murdered. The evil that resides in Washington does not only kill foreign leaders who try to do the right thing, but also its own.
