"I will not attack your doctrines nor your creeds if they accord liberty to me. If they hold thought to be dangerous - if they aver that doubt is a crime, then I attack them one and all, because they enslave the minds of men.

I attack the monsters, the phantoms of imagination that have ruled the world. I attack slavery. I ask for room -- room for the human mind." -- Robert G. Ingersoll, The Ghosts and Other Lectures

For Progressives, First Amendment Comes in Second

Progressive America is troubled. Some of its leading lights fret that if something is not done soon, government will actually need a good reason to censor other people's speech.

Such is the ominous upshot of a seemingly minor Supreme Court case that could have "far-reaching consequences," as The New York Times put it recently.

The case (Reed v. Town of Gilbert) concerned a sign ordinance in Gilbert, Ariz., that imposed tighter restrictions on church signs than on political ones. The entire Supreme Court said that was ridiculous, and struck the measure down. Government cannot blithely discriminate against certain speech or speakers based on content.

Spying programs turning US into a fascist state: Analyst

The inadequate judicial oversight of the US spying programs is leading the country toward a “type of fascist state,” says a former American intelligence linguist from Orlando.

The federal court monitoring the spying operations issued the final order on Friday permitting the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect millions of Americans’ phone records.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) ruled that the bulk data collection program does not violate Americans' privacy rights.

The secretive court contended that the program concerns the metadata of US citizens, which entails the numbers people dial in a phone call, the length of the call and when it takes place. Metadata does not include the actual contents of a phone conversation.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced on Friday that the collected data “will not be used or accessed for any other purpose” other than an ongoing legal battle over the program.

Palestinians Protest Israeli Settlers' Seizure of Hospital

Dozens of Palestinians staged demonstrations outside the Al-Baraka hospital complex in the Southern West Bank city of Hebron (Al-Khalil) to protest the occupation of the premises by Jewish settlers.

The demonstrations, which included a number of Palestinian Christians, were organized by local popular resistance committees, Anadolu reported.

“Palestinians will never accept Israel's policy of illegal Jewish settlement,” Fr. Attallah Hanaa, a Palestinian Christian clergyman who participated in the protest, told the agency.

“We will always reject Israel's seizure of Islamic and Christian institutions,” he said.

“We are of this land; it is our home, our history, our identity,” the priest added. “And we will never surrender it to the Israeli occupiers.”

According to Israeli daily Haaretz, the settlers claim to have purchased the hospital complex from a US-based Christian NGO through a Swedish firm that served as middleman.

Chilcot report delays blamed on ‘vested interests’

Anger over continued delays in the publication of the report into the Iraq war has swung back against the government with allegations that “vested interests” have tried to suppress evidence.

The inquiry, chaired by former Whitehall mandarin Sir John Chilcot and established in 2009, has yet to name a date for the publication of its report, which is expected to heavily criticise a number of politicians, including former prime minister Tony Blair, and several intelligence and defence officials.

The delay has dismayed the families of armed forces personnel killed in the conflict and led to complaints that it is prolonging their anguish. It has also seen Chilcot come under criticism from MPs, with David Cameron and other ministers repeatedly expressing their frustration.

AMERICAN TEEN GETS 11 YEAR SENTENCE FOR PRO-ISIS TWEETS THAT TAUGHT PEOPLE HOW TO USE BITCOIN

First: the one area where Amin’s actions do seem fairly questionable are when he helped another Virginia teen travel to Syria, apparently to join ISIS. That part definitely seems like it stepped over the legal line. But, the rest of the charges against him seem… like a teenager using Twitter and other social media to discuss stuff he’s interested in. Amin ran a Twitter account called @AmreekiWitness, which had about 4,000 followers. He tweeted pro-ISIS propaganda, but that still seems to be a form of protected speech, last I checked. And, his big “crime” appears to be linking to an article about why ISIS supporters should use Bitcoin.

As tragedies shock Europe, a bigger refugee crisis looms in the Middle East

While the world’s attention is fixed on the tens of thousands of Syrian refugees swarming into Europe, a potentially far more profound crisis is unfolding in the countries of the Middle East that have borne the brunt of the world’s failure to resolve the Syrian war.

Those reaching Europe represent a small percentage of the 4 million Syrians who have fled into Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq, making Syria the biggest single source of refugees in the world and the worst humanitarian emergency in more than four decades.

As the fighting grinds into a fifth year, the realization is dawning on aid agencies, the countries hosting the refugees and the Syrians themselves that most won’t be going home anytime soon, presenting the international community with a long-term crisis that it is ill-equipped to address and that could prove deeply destabilizing, for the region and the wider world.

Huge Malaysia Rally for Najib's Resignation Enters 2nd Day

Big crowds of protesters returned to the streets of Kuala Lumpur on Sunday to demand the resignation of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak over a financial scandal, after the first day of the massive rally passed peacefully.

The protesters camped overnight wearing yellow shirts of the Bersih movement — the coalition for clean and fair elections — even after authorities blocked the organizer's website and banned yellow attire and the group's logo in a bid to deter the rallies, which were also held in other Malaysian cities.

West Point professor calls on US military to target legal critics of war on terror

An assistant professor in the law department of the US military academy at West Point has argued that legal scholars critical of the war on terrorism represent a “treasonous” fifth column that should be attacked as enemy combatants.

In a lengthy academic paper, the professor, William C Bradford, proposes to threaten “Islamic holy sites” as part of a war against undifferentiated Islamic radicalism. That war ought to be prosecuted vigorously, he wrote, “even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage”.

Other “lawful targets” for the US military in its war on terrorism, Bradford argues, include “law school facilities, scholars’ home offices and media outlets where they give interviews” – all civilian areas, but places where a “causal connection between the content disseminated and Islamist crimes incited” exist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist, who NEVER advocates violence, but thinks that humankind is smart enough to resolve geopolitical issues through good faith negotiations and not war, does that approach make me your enemy, sir?!?

Because, if your answer would be an unequivocal "Absolutely", I fear we have lost all reason in this country, and we are slouching toward a world war of unimaginable pain, genocide, and destruction.

Sir, it appears that your understanding of history, and human nature, is flawed in the extreme, and if West Point believes that you thoroughly embodies its values with what you are saying, this country, and its future, are in deep trouble.

First, let's remember what the late President Kennedy said so eloquently: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

What, Mr. Bradford, causes a person to become radicalized?!? Does a person become radicalized because they have meaningful work and are making a decent living; know that their wife will get great prenatal care at the local clinic; have decent schools for their kids to attend, and actually have a voice in their government's process, and some control over their own destiny?!?

Or is it that governmental corruption, poverty and despair have taken over their lives; that their kids are constantly getting sick from having to drink filthy water; that they have no say in whatever their government does, and they can be horrifically persecuted for speaking out against an oppressive regime?!? Radicalization becomes attractive when it appears to be the only possible path to survival.


I am not advocating violence here, sir: I am advocating logic.

And unfortunately, logic and US foreign policy do not seem to have had a great, ongoing relationship in many years.

The US government has supported innumerable tinpot dictators around the world, then wonder why these governments are ultimately bashed to smithereens, ultimately, by a very angry citizenry.

Look at what ultimately happened to Batista in Cuba, or the US-supported Shah of Iran.

And also unfortunately, the US is still doing the same thing in the present time. The US government is supporting the Al-Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain, home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet, which not only incarcerated and tortured peaceful protesters , but also their first responders as well.

Now to the situation in Yemen, where Houthi rebels gave the boot to the Al-Hadi government. Sir, do you remember how many names were on the ballot during the last election?!? Well, if you do not, I will tell you; only one - that of Al Hadi. How in the name of all that is honest can you tell me, with a straight face, that the Yemenite people had a real choice of candidates in their last election?!?

And now of course, enabled by the US military, the UAE and Saudi Arabia have declared a full-on war against Yemen. Civilians and non-combatants - including children, the medically fragile elderly, and women, are getting routinely slaughtered, all in the name of bringing back the Al-Hadi government, which the people of Yemen despise.

And this, sir, cuts to another issue; when the American government supports tyrants around the world, the world understands that our alleged "love for democracy" is simply a farce, when it gets in the way of doing business. There is no other kind way to say it.

But there is a way of changing this, and that is with how foreign aid is meted out. Much of this winds up as graft and corruption, just settling into the pockets of those world leaders the US government wants to maintain in power.

Aid, in food and medicine, needs to get to the people who desperately need it, and the US government needs to have steps in place that it doesn't go to government cronies to be sold on the black market.

There needs to be public/private partnerships to build roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals, to put people to work in meaningful jobs with decent wages. US taxpayer dollars would be far better spent on such projects, rather than on more wars to suppress local foreign populations.

I really want to see the United States universally respected as "the good guy" in geopolitical issues, and making changes of this nature will do a lot toward achieving that goal.

But ultimately, Mr. Bradford, the largest "weapon" the US government can deploy, to prevent radicalization, is to cease, immediately, to appropriate resources in other countries to which we have absolutely no moral right.

Think home grown cold fusion, alternative fuels which can drive a tank, or fuel a plane; THAT kind of research is ultimately what will save this country from more endless, fruitless wars, ultimately for private profit.

Legal experts see no criminal trouble for Clinton thus far

Experts in government secrecy law see almost no possibility of criminal action against Hillary Clinton or her top aides in connection with now-classified information sent over unsecure email while she was secretary of state, based on the public evidence thus far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here comes the Whitewash! And I agree, the Clintons are untouchable. They know where the dead bodies are buried and how they got to BE dead bodies, and they are above the laws. Proof of that is in the recent scandal where a Clinton-appointed judge threw out Larry Klayman's RICO lawsuit against the Clinton Foundation, a lawsuit which would have resulted in the confiscation of all their ill-gotten wealth!

But the issue isn't really about the law, or about Hillary running guns to Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, or even about how the wide-open email server coupled with the Foundation suggests that Hillary was running an espionage operation out of the State Department.

Hillary wants the White House, and that is political, and politics isn't the letter of the law. Politics is perception, and the perception of Hillary is that she has not changed in her behavior since she was fired form the Watergate Committee for ethical violations all those years ago!

Hillary will never go to jail. But neither will she go to the White House.

Glenn Beck’s ‘All Lives Matter’ March Draws 20,000

Several hundred protesters from the Black Lives Matter movement marched to the Minnesota State Fair on Saturday to bring attention to race issues ranging from policing to underrepresentation of minorities at one of the nation’s biggest state fairs.

The mixed-race crowd, including senior citizens and children, chanted slogans along the 1-1/2 mile route and briefly lay down on a bridge south of the fairgrounds

Minnesota media reported the number of marchers at 325.

A few hundred miles to the south, a throng of 20,000, led by Glenn Beck, marched in Birmingham, Alabama, along the same route marched by Martin Luther King. They were there to declare that “All Lives Matter.”

Guess which march received national media attention and which one didn’t.

Growth of Cancer

Now, that's pretty convincing! Cancer deaths clearly have not been going up in recent years; they've been going down. Kudos to medical science. Kudos to the Competitive Enterprise Institute for exposing a fraud. So much for the theory that cancer is a "modern" disease -- except for one tiny little problem. The graph starts in 1975. Why not earlier since data is available for those years?

One need go no further than the graphs found in Cancer Trends During the 20th Century, as published in the Journal of Australian College of Nutritional & Environmental Medicine for the answer. See for yourself how cancer rates evolved in Sweden during the 20th Century -- and be sure and check out what happens on each graph around the mid-70s where the National Cancer Institute graph begins:

CDC Admits 98 Million Americans Received Polio Vaccine In An 8-Year Span When It Was Contaminated With Cancer Virus

The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which WAS cached here (since removed by google so you can view an image of the cache here), admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span from 1955-1963 when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.

Dem Chief Blocks Pro-Iran Deal Resolution at DNC

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D – FL) blocked a resolution at the DNC summer meeting this weekend, which would’ve commended President Obama for helping to reach the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran.

Details are scant on what happened, but officials suggested Wasserman Schultz brought up procedural issues to prevent the matter from coming to a vote. The vast majority of members instead signed an open letter praising the deal, which was quickly circulated after the vote didn’t happen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Major congratulations, Ms. Wasserman Schultz, for proving, yet again, to your "alleged constituents", that you do not represent concerns for their well being and future, but represent the geopolitical values of Tel Aviv in the matter of the P5+1 deal.

There are times when the the interests of the US and Israel do align; this is not one of those times, and you have done a massive disservice to this country by not giving President Obama credit on this deal.

There are many issues from this administration upon which I have been very critically vocal; the P5+1 deal is not one of them.

And one final note, Ms. Wasserman Schultz; Americans are becoming rather disenchanted with a foreign leader (Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu) attempting to control American foreign policy, and resent it mightily.

His in-your-face hubris on the issue of the Iran nuclear deal, to the point of calling out US senators in glossy US TV ads we have been seeing on Faux News, to order them to vote "Israel's way" on this may well consign him to the dustbin of history, in the next Israeli elections.

ISIS Fighters Seize Part of Syrian Capital of Damascus

Battles are reportedly ongoing in the Saudi capital city of Damascus after a sudden attack by ISIS fighters has left them with possession of part of the Qadam District, the first time any rebel faction has had anything meaningful inside the capital itself.

Actually how much is held in the city is unclear, with the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claiming that ISIS only holds a couple of streets, but ISIS themselves saying they hold half of the very significant district, and showing video of their fighters advancing significantly.

ISIS’ main target in the area near Damascus has long been the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk, which had been a de facto suburb of the capital before the war. Now, the fighters are pushing into the city itself, something that was once seen as unthinkable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ISIS, a construct of the US government, is being waived at the American people as a "justification" for sending US ground troops into Syria.

And I have a short memo on the subject for the Obama Administration on this issue: what part of "HELL, no!!" are you having difficulty understanding here, please?!? I BELIEVE I am speaking the most clear and plain English I can muster. Why the difficulty in comprehension on your end, please?!?

Any thinking person understands that DC's desire for regime change in Damascus is driving this, because Syria is Iran's great friend in the region.

THE HILLARY EMAIL SCANDAL - THE SCANDALS BEHIND THE SCANDAL

There is a term of craft in Propaganda called a "Limited Hangout." This refers to admitting to a smaller scandal as a distraction from the larger scandal that must remain hidden.

...

See how it works?

Good.

Because it appears we are in the middle of yet another limited hangout, in which the public furor over the questionable use of a private email server by Hillary Clinton may be concealing far greater and darker secrets!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bump to the top! US history is full of examples where the government would admit to a minor crime in order to keep the greater crimes hidden. I think the email scandal is one such case. All focus is being put onto the server itself, while left in the dark are the possibilities or US Government gun-running to the very terrorists we are told are our enemies, and the highest level spy ring in US history, run by the Secretary of State herself!

A long read, but I think worth it. Please forward!

Growing Migrant Crisis Prompts Call for Urgent Meeting of E.U. Officials

With increasing public consternation about the flow of migrants and asylum seekers to Europe and the dangers of their passage, Germany, France and Britain made a joint call on Sunday for an urgent meeting of European Union interior and justice ministers to find “concrete” measures to cope with the escalating crisis.

In a quick response, Luxembourg — which holds the revolving presidency of the European Union — called such a meeting for Sept. 14 in Brussels.

What is most urgent, the interior ministers of the three countries said, is agreement on the establishment of welcome centers in Greece and Italy to house, feed and screen migrants and asylum seekers, and to decide who should be allowed to remain as a legal refugee and who should be sent back home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

European governments' hubris on this issue, apparently, knows no bounds.

How in the name of heaven, and all that is just, can European
leaders even THINK about sending fleeing refugees back to Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq,Yemen, Somalia, and Libya?!?

Are these people simply "collateral damage", to be discarded as quickly as possible, or human beings, caught in the snares of the barbarism which is war?!?

These horrific wars without end, have been generally started by the US government, or by US proxies, ultimately for private financial corporate gain.

Therefore, from my perspective, the US government should be aiding European governments tasked with dealing with the refugee problems engendered by these wars of conquest. From a national moral perspective, this issue cannot be just "Europe's problem" with which to deal.

State to release largest batch of Clinton emails so far

The roiling controversy over Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server as secretary of state looks likely to intensify Monday with the State Department set to release the largest batch of her messages made public thus far.

The sheer size of the planned posting on the State Department's website—at least 6,106 pages, according to a recent court filing—should give Clinton's critics and her defenders a lot to digest. The volume of emails slated to go public Monday is roughly the same as that of all of Clinton's messages unveiled up to this point.

Enjoy the heat wave! It could be another rough winter

Remember last winter? Of course you do. It’s a tough one to forget. We in the Northeast were pummeled by one snow storm after another, simple trips about town turned into harrowing adventures, and temperatures dipped into record-cold territory.

While New Englanders are a reserved bunch, folks around here were practically kissing the asphalt when the snow finally disappeared from our streets in early spring.

Yeah, it was a rough winter.

That’s why it brings us no pleasure to report this bit of news: The Farmer’s Almanac is calling for equally brutal weather for our region in the winter, dubbing it a “winter deja vu,” and predicting “snow, snow and more snow.”

Predictions say snow as early as November for region

The editors of the Farmers’ Almanac are issuing a stern warning, to “brace yourselves” for a winter forecast that you may not want to read.

“Depending on where you live and how much cold and snow you like, we have good news and bad news,” said editor Peter Geiger.

According to the 2016 edition, which hits store shelves this week, winter will once again split the country in half, with the eastern sections of the country on tap for frigidly cold conditions and the other half predicted to experience milder to more normal winter conditions.

These 10 disgraced Iraq War architects are desperately trying to undo Obama’s Iran deal

There is a fierce battle going on in Washington, with progressive and pro-diplomacy organizations facing off against pro-Israel organizations to prevent a veto-proof vote to kill President Obama’s deal with Iran.

These anti-deal organizations are joined by a number of hawkish figures whose last great foreign policy foray was America’s last diplomatic catastrophe: the Iraq war. Here are 10 Iraq war supporters now trying to kill our best chance for a just peace with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there were true justice in this country, all of these people would be cooling their heels in prison, facing charges of crimes against humanity for the Iraq war.

But because Obama swallowed the koolaid before his inauguration, and assured the American people that this country would be "looking forward and not backward", meaning these charges would never be addressed, they still walk among us, completely unrepentant for the horrors the invasion and occupation of Iraq inflicted upon that country, for absolutely no justifiable reason whatsoever.

Czech President Miloš Zeman suggests European army to halt African invasion

The president of the Czech Republic, Miloš Zeman, has suggested that troops should be used to secure the European Union’s borders against immigration and that a common European army could be formed to achieve this objective. He correctly notes that the failure to repulse the ongoing migrant invasion is due to a lack of will on behalf of European leaders.

Kissinger’s role in gaining U.S. acceptance of Israeli nukes a case study in Zionist manipulation

On August 20 PressTV carried an article titled “Kissinger tried to curb Israeli nukes: State Dept. documents.” The article starts by stating “The US State Department has released documents that show the administration of former president Richard Nixon had sought to curb Israel’s clandestine nuclear weapons program.” In fact, the documents were released in 2006, but they are fascinating and certainly relevent to the Iran nuclear deal in that they show the unbelievable double standard that is being applied to Iran compared to Israel.

Ethnic Nepotism, Incompetence and Parasitism at Britain’s National Health Service

With a dazzling smile and expensively-styled long hair, glamorous Dr Ola Orekunrin is a walking advertisement for the new multi-ethnic Britain. Not only was she — at 21 — the youngest person ever to qualify as a doctor but she has since held down important posts at a string of prestigious hospitals.

A shining example, then, of a talented immigrant giving back to the country that had given her so much. Although Nigerian-born she was raised by white foster parents in a Suffolk village and educated by nuns. But she retained her family connections to her homeland so no-one was surprised when she decided to give up the day job and launch an air ambulance service ferrying needy medical cases from Africa to Britain. All above board and paid for privately, of course.

Donald Trump is set to blow up GOP orthodoxy -- again

First Donald Trump antagonized the Republican establishment with his proposals on immigration. Then he irritated some with his stands on trade and Social Security. Now Trump is preparing a tax proposal that will again set him far apart from the party's powers-that-be.

The problem for the establishment is that Trump's positions on all three issues are more in line with the majority of American voters than the establishment's preferred policies. By using his popularity to force outside-the-GOP-box ideas into the Republican presidential debate, Trump is displaying an uncanny sense of the divisions between voters and the GOP power structure.

Nazis Riot Again in Kiev to Force Resuming War

On Monday, August 31st, racist fascists (nazis) who hate Russians rioted in front of Ukraine’s parliament building to demand resumption of the unlimited bombing campaign against the breakaway former Ukrainian region, Donbass, which had voted 90%+ for the neutralist Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whose government these nazis had helped the U.S. to overthrow in February 2014. A rabidly anti-Russian government was installed in its stead, and these demonstrators want this government to violate the Minsk II accords that Ukraine had signed, and to return to full-scale war.

"Sitting in front of TV and just complaining wouldn't do," said Naoko Hiramatsu, a 44-year-old professor of French. "If I don't take action and try to put a stop on this, I will not be able to explain myself to my child in the future," she added, holding a four-year-old son in her arms. While the organizers estimated that some 120,000 people took part in the Sunday protests, the police provided a far lower figure of 30,000.

Dementia now striking people in their 40s as mercury from vaccines causes slow, degenerative brain damage

Dementia and other neurological brain diseases are striking people younger and younger, according to a new study conducted by researchers from Bournemouth University in England and published in the journal Surgical Neurology International. These diseases have reached levels that are "almost epidemic," the researchers said, and they reached them so quickly that environmental factors must be largely to blame.

"The rate of increase in such a short time suggests a silent or even a 'hidden' epidemic, in which environmental factors must play a major part, not just ageing," lead researcher Colin Pritchard said.

Barak’s Tales of Israel’s Near War With Iran Conceal the Real Story

New evidence has now surfaced from former Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak that Israel came close to attacking Iran three times over the past few years – if you believe what major news media reported about the story.

But you shouldn’t believe it. The latest story is only a continuation of the clever ploy that has been carried out by Israeli administrations from Ehud Olmert to Benjamin Netanyahu to convince the world that it was seriously contemplating war against Iran in order to pressure them toward crippling sanctions against Iran, if not military confrontation with it.

Families' fury as Chilcot report into Iraq war is 'delayed until June 2016' amid claims first draft is badly written and riddled with errors

Author Tom Bower, who interviewed 160 figures from Government, civil service and the Armed Forces for a book about the Blair administration, said it would take at least nine months to prepare a ‘credible’ version of the report.

That would mean the report would not be published until June 2016, and it may face further delays. The draft, which was sent to witnesses for comment if they were likely to face criticism, was said to have prompted an angry reaction from senior military figures.

Writing in The Sunday Times, Mr Bower said that the military had been criticised in the inquiry for decisions that had actually been taken by politicians.

Ahead of a historic trip to the Arctic, President Barack Obama erased a former Republican president's name from North America's tallest peak in a move applauded in Alaska and derided more than 3,000 miles away in Ohio. More contentious matters concerning climate change and Arctic drilling awaited.

Obama departed Monday morning to Anchorage for the start of a three-day visit, bringing the American leader up close to shrinking glaciers, Arctic temperatures and a mix of messy energy politics. His tour of the nation's largest state is closely choreographed to call attention to the ways Obama says climate change is already damaging Alaska's stunning scenery.

Open War In Yemen! Saudi Arabia and UAE Invade

Unbeknownst to most Americans, a new war was launched in early August and not merely the proxy force versus proxy force variety that we have become accustomed to seeing over the last few years. A direct military conflict and invasion of Yemen by Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates – complete with air assaults, tanks, and ground troops – was launched in early August. Yet, if one were not following the events in Yemen closely, you would scarcely have known that the war had started.

Indeed, when Tony Cartalucci wrote that, “with almost a whimper,” the Western media reported the ground invasion of Yemen, he couldn’t have been more right.

Total War in Yemen Totally Ignored by Western Media

With almost a whimper, the Western media reported that the US-backed regimes of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and their auxiliary fighters drawn from Al Qaeda have begun carrying out what is the ground invasion of Yemen. Along with an ongoing naval blockade and months of bombing raids, the ground invasion adds a lethal new dimension to the conflict – for both sides.

Landing at the port city of Aden on Yemen’s southern tip, it is reported that an “armor brigade” consisting of between 1,000 – 3,000 troops primarily from the UAE are now moving north, their ultimate destination Sana’a, the capital of Yemen.

Columns of the UAE’s French-built Leclerc main battle tanks were seen moving out of the port city though their numbers are difficult to establish. Reports claiming that the UAE unit is brigade-sized might indicate as many as 100 tanks involved – a third of the UAE’s total armored force.

Mass Immigration Has Left Britain ‘Unrecognisable’, Says Nigel Farage

Mass immigration has left Britain an “unrecognisable” country that many people would not want to leave to their children and grandchildren, Nigel Farage has said.

In one of his strongest attacks on immigration policy, he said the arrival of migrants has some British people feeling that parts of the country are now alien to them.

The UK Independence Party leader said parts of the country had been “taken over” by foreigners and told how he caught a recent commuter train from London to Kent and had to wait for several stops before he heard English being spoken.

West About to Surrender to Barbarian Invasions of Our Age

"Day and night, hordes of people with fake IDs (or no IDs whatsoever) storm Europe’s undefended borders. Back in the day, they would’ve been stopped and forced to go back by the police, army or border control. Now, however, European warships are used to safely escort the migrants to safe harbors, where they are provided with food, shelter and are allowed to obtain refugee status," says the professor.

Mr. Jensen points out that while there were many migrations in the past, like the migrations of Europeans to the US, Canada and Australia, as well as migrations within Europe itself, things were quite different as migrants had no welfare system to rely on and had to fend for themselves.

Kathleen Willey: Hillary 'wrote the book on terrorizing women'

Kathleen Willey, one of the women caught in the crossfire of alleged sexual harassment by former President Bill Clinton and what she characterizes as acts of intimidation to silence her, has taken issue with Hillary Clinton’s remarks last week comparing terrorists to Republicans engaged in a so-called war on women.

“This woman wrote the book on terrorizing women, on terrorism,” exclaimed Willey during an interview Sunday on Aaron Klein’s Investigative Radio program.

Continued Willey: “Her tactics and the things that she set in motion against all the women like me, the ones you have heard of and the ones you haven’t heard of, and the ones who are so scared that fled the country, are terrorist tactics like I’ve never seen before.”

“I went through them. I lived through them. And I know exactly what I am talking about. She is the war on women. I don’t care what anybody says.”

White Students at Washington State Expected to “Defer” to Non-White Students If They Expect to Do Well in Class

This is the racist garbage they’re teaching your kids at university today – That rage against white people is appropriate and white kids need to defer to non-white students if they want to do well in class.

Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”…

…White students in Professor John Streamas’s “ Introduction to Multicultural Literature” class, are expected to “defer” to non-white students, among other community guidelines, if they want “to do well in this class.”

Statin Drugs Linked To Arthritis, Heart Trouble And More

Research revealing the broad spectrum toxicity of statin drugs continues to accumulate unabated. A study reveals that these cholesterol-lowering drugs may be contributing to an epidemic of arthritis and autoimmunity in exposed populations, adding to a growing body of clinical evidence that they may cause over 300 adverse health effects.

Published this month in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy, and titled “Statins accelerate the onset of collagen type II-induced arthritis in mice,” researchers found that 100% of the animals given statin drugs developed arthritis and markers of autoimmunity versus 58% in the control population who did not receive them.

“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

Ex-intel officials: Pentagon report proves US complicity in ISIS

According to leading American and British intelligence experts, a declassified Pentagon report confirms that the West accelerated support to extremist rebels in Syria, despite knowing full well the strategy would pave the way for the emergence of the ‘Islamic State’ (ISIS).

The experts who have spoken out include renowned government whistleblowers such as the Pentagon’s Daniel Ellsberg, the NSA’s Thomas Drake, and the FBI’s Coleen Rowley, among others.

Their remarks demonstrate the fraudulent nature of claims by two other former officials, the CIA’s Michael Morell and the NSA’s John Schindler, both of whom attempt to absolve the Obama administration of responsibility for the policy failures exposed by the DIA documents.

Stung by BDS, Israel mistreats US Palestinians at border crossings

The US is tolerating Israel’s mistreatment of US citizens of Palestinian origin, Arab-American advocates are saying. Israeli authorities have recently refused entry to several Palestinians with US passports, including an outspoken activist.

When Nerdeen Kiswani tried to cross into the West Bank at the Allenby Bridge crossing, she was interrogated for 15 hours, and then denied entry based on her “hostile behavior towards Israel.”

Kiswani, a student at CUNY Staten Island and Hunter College in New York City, has crossed without much trouble in 2013 and 2014. Last month, however, Israeli border guards interrogated her about her political activism, including the involvement with Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Her US passport meant nothing to the Israelis, Kiswani told RT.

“It doesn’t matter to them what passport Palestinians hold,” she said.

What is Your Computer Hiding From You?

A good question arose in the comments to our Thursday story about U.S. border agents searching and seizing laptop computers. Can't people simply store their data on the cloud to keep it safely from government hands?

Let's think this through. Say you have a few megabytes of data that you wish to keep private. Nothing illegal, just private. You want to access your data after you cross outside U.S. borders. What are your options?

One choice is to store the data in a computer or on a thumb drive and carry it with you. As we saw yesterday, you run the risk of having government agents seize the physical device from you.

Another option is to upload the data to the cloud, safely encrypted from prying eyes, and then download it once you reach your foreign destination. This seems like a better alternative. Is it?

"I remind: Viktor Yanukovych in exchange to the non-signing of the agreement with the EU [Association Agreement] has received a political bribe of $3 billion from Russia, the $3 billion that Russia demands to pay now," he said on TV late on Sunday.

Yatseniuk repeated his proposal to Russia: accept the conditions offered to foreign creditors or you will never receive any other conditions.

Flashback - Agents 'killed the body-in-bag spy... then got into his flat through skylight to destroy evidence': New theory could solve the mystery five years later

Gareth Williams, 31, was discovered in a holdall in the bath at his London home five years ago this month. Now a source at the heart of the investigation has told The Mail on Sunday that Scotland Yard detectives believe an agent from an unknown secret service broke into the victim’s flat to destroy or remove evidence.

The new claim centres on the revelation that part of the forensic equipment placed in the flat after the body was found was moved – despite the fact the building was under armed police guard.

Special footplates, which allow officers to walk across a crime scene without contaminating it, were moved after the first day of the investigation. This led Scotland Yard to conclude that someone must have scaled the building’s walls and broken in through the skylight to cover their tracks.

Flashback: Did MI6 'dry clean' this flat to cover up the spy in a bag murder? Not one fingerprint and five missing hours before police called

Why had it taken MI6 five hours to contact Scotland Yard? Detectives are in little doubt. ‘The suspicion is that MI6 went round, found him dead and did a pretty damn good “dry-cleaning” job before we even knew about it,’ an impeccable source with full knowledge of the 20-month police investigation told the Mail this week.

The forensic team found no trace of any fingerprints, apart from those belonging to Mr Williams. No DNA, apart from his. Nothing to suggest anyone had ever been inside the apartment, apart from him. It was as if he had been living in an hermetically-sealed bubble.

...

There is at least one notorious precedent (that we know of) for a secret-service-inspired smear campaign against one of its own agents. It is the case of Jonathan Moyle, another British intelligence agent, who was found hanging by his shirt from the rail in a walk-in wardrobe, with a pillow case over his head, in the Chilean capital Santiago in 1990.

Fascism From West Point

The key weapon in this war, he says, is information. U.S. crimes are not the problem; the problem, he writes, is any information distributed about U.S. crimes -- which information is only damaging because the United States is the pinnacle of support for the rule of law. It wouldn't matter if you spread news about crimes by some more lawless nation. But when you share news about crimes by the United States it hurts the U.S. cause which is upholding the rule of law and leading the world to lawfulness. The United States is the all-time world champion of the rule of law, we're told, in a 95-page screed that never mentions the Kellogg-Briand Pact and only belatedly brings up the United Nations Charter in order to pretend that it permits all U.S. wars.
