THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled. With something so important, a deeper mystery seems only decent." -- John Kenneth Galbraith (1908- ), former professor of economics at Harvard, writing in "Money: Whence it came, where it went"(1975).

Goldman Global Leading Indicator Drastically Revised, Collapses Into "Confirmed Slowdown"

Just 2 short weeks ago, Goldman nervously admitted that possibly perhaps maybe their Global Leading Indicator was indicating a "slowdown" was coming, but remained hopeful that the rest of the month would see data pick up and prove them wrong. Now that the final data has been released for the various components of the index, the 'exuberant' recovery of the last few months has been massively revised lower. As Goldman itself notes, the September Final GLI came in at 2.6% YoY, providing a clear signal of "Slowdown", with the data now in hand further suggesting that the GLI first may have entered the ‘Slowdown’ phase back in July.

Why Stop at ISIS? Let's Bomb the Whole Middle East

Let’s bomb the Muslim world – all of it – to save the lives of its people. Surely this is the only consistent moral course? Why stop at blowing up Islamic State, when the Syrian government has murdered and tortured so many? This, after all, was last year’s moral imperative. What’s changed?

Argentina president claims US plotting to oust her

Argentinian opposition politicians have accused the country’s president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, of being “completely out of touch with reality” after she gave a rambling televised address in which she claimed the US may be behind a plot to overthrow her government and possibly even assassinate her.

“If something should happen to me, don’t look to the Middle East, look to the North,” Fernández said during the address on Tuesday night, in which she alluded to an alleged plot against her by local bankers and businessmen “with foreign help”.

The Mathematics of Ebola Trigger Stark Warnings: Act Now or Regret It

The Eurosurveillance paper, by two researchers from the University of Tokyo and Arizona State University, attempts to derive what the reproductive rate has been in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. (Note for actual epidemiology geeks: The calculation is for the effective reproductive number, pegged to a point in time, hence actually Rt.) They come up with an R of at least 1, and in some cases 2; that is, at certain points, sick persons have caused disease in two others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before everyone starts to panic, let's put that R-naught of 2 into perspective. Measles has an R-naught of 12-18. Smallpox and Polio are 6. Flu is between 2 and 3.

Scotland’s Referendum; the Stolen Nation

English though I am, I was both angered and saddened by the result of the Scottish Referendum; saddened because I had hoped the Yes side would win, and angered because of all the sneering, negative and arrogant campaigning done by Westminster via the Better Together campaign. That didn’t go down too well so they brought in Gordon Brown to do his patriotic bit, which included talking about how many Scots had fought and died in the UK’s wars.

US Air Strikes in Syria Proceeding as Expected: Civilian Deaths Documented, ISIS Recruitment Up

Last week, besides pointing out the obscene fact that the US Senate approved $500 million for the US to get more involved in the Syrian civil war on the same day the UN announced a $352 million funding shortfall for feeding civilian refugees of the war, I predicted that the “training” of Syrian rebels would fail just like training in Iraq and Afghanistan but civilian deaths from the US air strikes and at the hands of the rebels would greatly aid recruiting in extremist groups like ISIS.

How Corporate Executives Are Purchasing Our States—One Governership at a Time

Some people have a myriad of recurring nightmares about being publicly embarrassed, such as rising to give a speech and realizing you know nothing about the topic -- then realizing you're naked.

You might be surprised to learn though, that corporations also have such nightmares. OK, corporations aren't really people, no matter what the Supreme Court fabulists claim, so they can't dream, but their top executives can, and several recently suffered the same chilling hallucination. Only, it wasn't a dream ... it was real.

Tesco shares plunge amid probe into dodgy accounting

A Tesco accounting scandal that wiped 4 billion pounds from the firm's stock market value, and led to the suspension of four elite executives, has sparked a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) investigation into the retail giant's bookkeeping.

Specter of Russian Capital Controls Puts Market on Edge

Holders of Russia’s ruble-denominated bonds, stung by the worst losses in emerging markets in the third quarter, are weighing the consequences of possible capital controls as the currency sinks.

“It would be very negative for your investments in the local currency,” Peter Schottmueller, who helps manage $17 billion as head of emerging-market fixed income at Deka Investment GmbH in Frankfurt, said by e-mail yesterday. Foreign ownership of ruble bonds has dropped and any curbs on capital flows would further “increase the investment risk,” he said.

Russia removed its last restrictions eight years ago after imposing them in 1998, when the ruble’s drop led to a default on sovereign local-currency debt. Implementing the curbs again risks further damaging President Vladimir Putin’s ambition of turning Moscow into a financial hub at a time when escalating U.S. and European Union sanctions over the Ukraine crisis are already limiting access to global capital markets.

Britons spend more on drugs and prostitutes than beer and wine

Britons spend more on drugs and prostitutes than on beer and wine, the first official study of money spent on "illegal" activities has found.

The figures were disclosed in data today that showed a 2.2 per cent rise in the amount of money spent by families over the past year as the economy returned to health.

The Office for National Statistics, which tracks changes in spending habits across the country, found miscreants spent an enormous £12.3 billion last year on illegal substances and sexual gratification. This was more than the amount spent on wine and beer in 2013, which was just under £11 billion, according to the ONS data.

Ebola Outbreak: The Latest U.S. Government Lies

We begin with the Public Health Agency of Canada, which once (as recently as August 6) stated on its website that:

“In the laboratory, infection through small-particle aerosols has been demonstrated in primates, and airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected, although it has not yet been conclusively demonstrated (1, 6, 13). The importance of this route of transmission is not clear. Poor hygienic conditions can aid the spread of the virus.”

No more; the “airborne spread among humans is strongly suspected” language has been cleansed:

“In laboratory settings, non-human primates exposed to aerosolized ebolavirus from pigs have become infected, however, airborne transmission has not been demonstrated between non-human primates

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During the Reston Virginia Ebola outbreak (which thankfully only infected monkeys) the contagion spread from the room where the sick monkeys were being kept to a room full of healthy animals, apparently through the air conditioning ducts. This incident forms the core of the book "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston.

Extremists to have Facebook and Twitter vetted by anti-terror police

Extremists will have to get posts on Facebook and Twitter approved in advance by the police under sweeping rules planned by the Conservatives.

They will also be barred from speaking at public events if they represent a threat to “the functioning of democracy”, under the new Extremist Disruption Orders.

Theresa May, the Home Secretary, will lay out plans to allow judges to ban people from broadcasting or protesting in certain places, as well as associating with specific people.

The plans — to be brought in if the Conservatives win the election in May — are part of a wide-ranging set of rules to strengthen the Government’s counter-terrorism strategy.

Moazzam Begg: Former Guantanamo Bay detainee cleared of terror charges

Former Guantanamo Bay detainee Moazzam Begg has walked free from prison today after seven terror charges against him were dropped by prosecutors.

The 45-year-old had been in custody for seven months awaiting trial on charges connected to the civil war in Syria, including an allegation he attended a terrorism training camp there.

Asked what he planned to do, Mr Begg said: "I need to reconnect with my family again. I need to understand what it's like to be a free man and I think that it's important to point out some of the Government's failures in its foreign policy and its internal policy - its clear demonising of the Muslim community.

"And not once but twice in my case this Government has been involved either in directly detaining me or indirectly detaining me."

Mr Farage's riposte came just hours later, when Mr Banks explained he had decided to increase his donation from £100,000 to £1 million pounds after William Hague, the Leader of the Commons, dismissed the significance of his defection.

Officials: Second person being monitored for Ebola

Health officials are closely monitoring a possible second Ebola patient who had close contact with the first person to be diagnosed in the U.S., the director of Dallas County's health department said Wednesday.

All who have been in close contact with the man diagnosed are being monitored as a precaution, Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health and Human Services, said in a morning interview with WFAA-TV.

"Let me be real frank to the Dallas County residents: The fact that we have one confirmed case, there may be another case that is a close associate with this particular patient," he said. "So this is real. There should be a concern, but it's contained to the specific family members and close friends at this moment."

Even so, relationships between the UK’s England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland may have changed forever.

9/11 Truth Goes Nuclear! Massive Download In Progress

Huge caverns of “melted granite” were found below the foundations of the Twin Towers. Were they caused by thermo-nuclear explosions detonated to obliterate the steel reinforced, cast concrete, tubular core structure of WTC Buildings 1 & 2?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I was going to ignore this story but it seems to be popping up (planted) all over the independent media, so I feel I must comment.

First off, let us recall that there is photographic evidence of the use of conventional demolition charges at the World Trade Towers.



Second, the idea of a "micro-nuke", although fodder for Hollywood movies like "The Peacemaker", are pretty much a myth. The idea comes from the so-called "suitcase nuke" which was based on a plan to use the fission primary from a multi-stage nuclear weapon as a stand-alone bomb. But even this primary is of considerable yield of several kilotons as it is supposed to trigger a Hydrogen fusion "burn." Such an explosion at the WTC would have created a very obvious single-point detonation inconsistent with the official story of fire-induced collapse. Plus, the suitcase nuke concept ran into trouble because the primary of a multi-stage weapon relies on the added surrounding hardware to support the implosion device, so operating it without that added support would likely cause the outer case of the primary to be blown off by the compression charges leaving the plutonium un-fissioned (albeit scattered about the area). Plus any nuclear device leaves clear markers of its use such as radioactivity and identifiable isotopes.

Let us be practical, why spend the money on a nuclear weapon when conventional explosives are much cheaper and more reliable, and in the case of thermite, leave no unequivocal traces?

This "micro-nuke" story, like Judy Woods directed energy beams and the no-plane-at-the-Pentagon, is another attempt to poison the well of the 9-11 discussion and give the corporate media presstitutes and whorespondents an easy means to ridicule and dismiss the 9-11 truth movement.

Don't fall for it.

Isis an hour away from Baghdad – with no sign of Iraq army being able to make a successful counter-attack

Gee, looks like the *billions* US taxpayers spent training the Iraqi army was all for naught. The US solution? Spend additional billions to train Syrian ‘rebels.’

US air strikes are failing to drive back Isis [I-CIA-SIS] in Iraq where its forces are still within an hour’s drive of Baghdad…An example of the continued inability of the Iraqi army to remedy the failings, which led to its loss of Mosul and Tikrit, came on 21 September when Isis overran a base at Saqlawiya, near Fallujah, west of Baghdad after besieging it for a week.

“Erbil is home to many US contractors and advisors. If Kirkuk oil is privatized, the Erbil crowd will jump into the infrastructure/oil/rebuilding game in a hurry, so Erbil must be protected in Obama’s worldview,” Henderson said in exclusive interview with Fars News Agency.

Is the U.S. Secretly Egging On Hong Kong Protesters?

The mass demonstrations in Hong Kong are dramatic, indeed. And given that Hong Kong has long enjoyed a more liberal existence under British rule, protests against a more authoritarian Chinese government (at least it used to be more authoritarian) are not entirely surprising.

But Chinese officials accuse the U.S. of egging on the protests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course the US is behind this. If they can bring down the current Chinese government and replace it with one friendly to US interests, then BRICS will be destroyed before it goes active in January!

This continues a well-established practice by the United States of overthrowing democratically elected governments around the world and replacing them with US puppet rulers.

Snooping on Everyone While the Big Box Thieves Get Busy

In a more innocent time not so long ago, perhaps only a million or so people in this country fell under the government’s suspecting glare. Achieving that distinctively fat FBI file might have required marching against a war or traveling to leftist lands.

These days, there’s no precise way to figure out what it takes. And once you get on that dreaded terror watch list, there’s no certain route to getting off it and flying without fear of having to spend some serious quality time with a pack of TSA goons.

Windows 8 Was So Bad That Microsoft Is Skipping Windows 9

On April 1, 2013, Infoworld published an article headlined, “Microsoft skips ‘too good’ Windows 9, jumps to Windows 10.’” A disclaimer at the top clarified that the story was an April Fool’s Joke, but it now appears that wasn’t necessary.

On Tuesday, Microsoft announced that it will indeed be skipping Windows 9 and jumping to Windows 10 as the name for its next operating system. No joke.

Jewish Professors Hit Back Against Pro-Israel Campus 'Blacklist'

The AMCHA Initiative singled out the professors because, during the conflict between Israel and Hamas this past summer, they signed a petition calling for an academic boycott of Israel.

“We believe the professors who have signed this petition may be so biased against the Jewish state that they are unable to teach accurately or fairly about Israel or the Arab-Israel conflict, and may even inject antisemitic tropes into their lectures or class discussion,” wrote Tammi Rossman-Benjamin and Leila Beckwith, co-founders of the AMCHA Initiative.

Note: The professors are biased against murder, destruction, torture, injustice and genocide....we salute them!

Guantánamo force-feeding trial must not be secret, say press and lawyers

Sixteen major US news organizations and a hunger-striking detainee have asked a federal judge not to hold the first-ever trial of force-feeding practices at Guantánamo Bay in secret.

The Dubious 'Internet Safety Software' That Hundreds of Police Agencies Have Distributed to Families

For years, local law enforcement agencies around the country have told parents that installing ComputerCOP software is the “first step” in protecting their children online.

Police chiefs, sheriffs, and district attorneys have handed out hundreds of thousands of copies of the disc to families for free at schools, libraries, and community events, usually as a part of an “Internet Safety” outreach initiative. The packaging typically features the agency’s official seal and the chief’s portrait, with a signed message warning of the “dark and dangerous off-ramps” of the Internet.

Advertising firms struggle to kill malvertisements

In late September, advertisements appearing on a host of popular news and entertainment sites began serving up malicious code, infecting some visitors' computers with a backdoor program designed to gather information on their systems and install additional malicious code.

The attack affected visitors to The Jerusalem Post, The Times of Israel, The Hindustan Times, Internet music service Last.fm, and India-focused movie portal Bollywood Hungama, among other popular sites. At the center of the malware campaign: the compromise of San Francisco-based Internet advertising network Zedo, an advertising provider for the sites, whose network was then used to distribute malicious ads.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Zedo reports that it was not their servers that were compromised but those of their clients, and the problem has been resolved, so oyu are safe here at WRH.

US targets Syria infrastructure rather than militants: Sabrosky

The United States’ airstrikes in Syria often target militants with “no military value” and actually aim at the country’s infrastructure, says a US Marine Corps veteran.

Alan Sabrosky (Ph.D, University of Michigan) made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Tuesday while commenting on Washington-led coalition airstrikes in Syria that began last week.

“What I can see happening is that the targets they’re selecting are those that have, in many cases, no military value at all to ISIS or any other rebel group but really are intended to break whatever infrastructure the Syrian government will have when the fighting is over,” Sabrosky said.

Amazon adds Tom & Jerry to its online streaming service – but warns users the classic cartoons are RACIST

Tom and Jerry: The Complete Second Volume is accompanied by the caution: 'Tom and Jerry shorts may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today.'

One fan took to Twitter to say: 'watched Tom and Jerry since the 60s this is the 1st time I've ever heard the R word in relation to it. PC madness!'

Another fan wrote: 'I loved Tom and Jerry as a kid and it never made me think poorly of ethnic minorities or want to smoke cigars.'

Cultural commentator and professor of sociology Frank Furedi, of the University of Kent, said that the warnings show a 'very sad' tendency to read history backwards by judging people in the past by our current-day values.

He said: 'These warnings caricature and misinterpret what 40 year old cartoons communicated.

Viagra 'may cause blindness': Ingredient in the drug can permanently affect sight, doctors warn

One theory is that erectile dysfunction drugs may obstruct an enzyme which is important for transmitting light signals from the retina to the brain.

It is already known that sildenafil, the active ingredient in the erectile dysfunction medication, can cause temporary vision problems in some healthy people.

Doctors have now warned it could also cause permanent damage to the eyes of people retinitis pigmentosa.

People with normal sight that carry the gene for the condition may also be at risk, experts warn.

Retinitis pigmentosa is a rare hereditary condition that causes the cells in the retina - the area of the back of the eye which detects light - to degenerate and die.

This can lead to difficulty seeing in dim light, loss of peripheral vision, and sometimes blindness.

FDA threatens three companies with criminal charges for making Ebola treatment claims (but won't test natural substances against Ebola)

FDA and FTC are simply wrong about the law. And during the Ebola Epidemic their actions actively violate the July, 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) pronouncement that, during this crisis, offering even "unproven interventions" is ethical. What is not ethical is the position taken by the FDA and FTC.

Beyond the warning letters, here's the rest of the story the national press isn't reporting

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is getting more and more interesting. The trial of colloidal silver that was proposed in Nigeria was canceled due to political pressure, while the media proclaimed loudly that the treatment could not possibly work.

Meanwhile, a document has surfaced showing that the United States Air Force Research Laboratory has documented not only that colloidal silver is an anti-viral, but the mechanism by which it prevents the Ebola virus from multiplying in the body!

How enlightening to confirm that the FDA, in order to preserve the profits of the pharmaceutical corporations, is willing to allow humans too poor to pay for costly corporate Ebola treatments to die one of the most horrible deaths imaginable!

Top ten things you need to do NOW to protect yourself from an uncontrolled Ebola outbreak

Now that Ebola "patient zero" has been confirmed in the United States, it's clear that Ebola is spreading far beyond the control of any government or health department. Just weeks ago, President Obama promised Ebola wouldn't arrive in the United States, but now it's here.

The CDC is promising that they can keep it all under control for this patient discovered to have carried Ebola into Dallas. But can they also contain the next Ebola patient? How about the one after that? And how does any government contain a viral pandemic that can't be stopped with bullets and bombs?

Police Surveillance of Muslims and Human Rights in Japan

In societies governed by the rule of law, what limitations should apply to police surveillance? What protections should be accorded to religious and ethnic minorities who may be subject to police profiling?

Questions like these are at the heart of ongoing litigation in Tokyo concerning police surveillance of Japan’s Muslim community.

The question posited by the title of this three part series explores the dilemma faced by truth-seekers who have the facts that totally refute the Big Lies about 9/11/01.

These so-called “9/11 Truthers” or “conspiracy theorists” (pejorative terms designed to demean them) have been attempting to inform individuals and institutions that have chosen to disregard and/or disbelieve the overwhelmingly provable and documentable truths about the pre-planted controlled demolitions that pulverized into fine dust the three WTC towers on 9/11/01 could not have been accomplished by anybody other than insiders.

David Cameron and Theresa May - Dangerous Nonsense

A bizarre passage, unnoticed in David Cameron's UN speech, could be the first signal of government censorship plans and may lie behind Home Secretary Theresa May's plans announced this week for a clampdown on government designated "extremists" even when they do not advocate violence.

Cameron laid down the new government line in his speech to the UN. "We shouldn't stand by and just allow any form of non-violent extremism". What on earth does this mean? UKIP? Stop the War? Surely one goal of democracy is to persuade potentially violent extremists to become non-violent extremists?

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused 'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

FLASHBACK - Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

60 Percent of Voters Want Obamacare to Be Repealed

A new poll finds that three-fifths of likely voters support the repeal of Obamacare. A large plurality — 44 percent — wants to see Obamacare repealed and replaced with a conservative alternative. A much smaller group —16 percent — wants to see it repealed but not replaced. Less than one in three respondents — 32 percent — would like to keep Obamacare, whether in its current form or in amended form. So, with a conservative alternative in play, 60 percent of Americans support repeal, while only 32 percent oppose it.

After first Ebola case, red flags emerge that U.S. unprepared for pandemic

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We have a political ruling class comprised mostly of lawyers and money-junkies, who have little if any real knowledge of how to do anything. Couple that with the de-funding of necessary preparedness to support the war and prop up Wall Street and it becomes obvious that the same US Government that botched the 1976 flu epidemic with a vaccine that killed fifty times more people than the flu did, the same government that mishandled Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, the same government that allowed and then was unable to handle the Gulf Oil disaster, is woefully unprepared to deal with Ebola. On top of that, 80% of the nation no longer believes what the government says, according to a recent NBC/WSJ poll, which means even if the government stumbled onto a solution by blind luck, most people would not listen anyway.

Netanyahu Will Request Pollard's Release in Meeting With Obama

A senior member of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's entourage to New York revealed to Arutz Sheva that Netanyahu intends to raise Jonathan Pollard's release in his meeting with US President Barack Obama on Wednesday.

Netanyahu is in New York for the UN General Assembly, which he addressed on Sunday. In meeting Obama, the source told Arutz Sheva that he will discuss the fate of Pollard, now in his 29th year of incarceration in an American cell on charges of spying for Israel.

"Prime Minister Netanyahu intends to raise the topic of Pollard in his meeting with the US president and to request his release, as has been done previous times," the source relayed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Jonathan Pollard stole US nuclear secrets and sold them to Israel, which traded them to the USSR in exchange for increased emigration quotas for Russian Jews to move to Israel. Had the US and USSR gone to nuclear war at that point, the US would have lost. Pollard's betrayal was equal to that of Julius and Ethyl Rosenberg's handing the USSR the secrets to the Atomic bomb, for which they were executed.

Death toll from GM ignition switches now at 23

At least 23 people have died and 16 people have been seriously injured in crashes involving General Motors cars with defective ignition switches.

Attorney Kenneth Feinberg, who was hired by GM to compensate victims, updated the totals in an Internet posting Monday. Feinberg says he has received 153 death claims since August. Of those, 23 have been deemed eligible for compensation payments, up from 21 last week.

Sixteen of the 714 injury claimants have also received compensation offers. GM has acknowledged that it knew about faulty ignition switches in Chevrolet Cobalts and other small cars for more than a decade. Yet it didn't recall them until February of this year. The switches can slip out of the "on" position, which causes the cars to stall, knocks out power steering and turns off the air bags.

Pervs in authority: Former TSA officer accused of secretly recording female co-worker

(Reuters) - A former U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA)officer accused of secretly recording video of a female co-worker inside an employee restroom at Nashville International Airport has been charged with several felonies, authorities said on Tuesday.

Daniel Boykin, 33, was charged with unlawful photography, aggravated burglary, wiretapping, unlawful telephone recording and two computer crimes, Metropolitan Nashville Police said in a statement.

"Detectives believe that Boykin had an infatuation with the one victim," police said.

The woman filed a complaint with the U.S. Attorney's Office in May after she saw videos of herself on Boykin's cell phone and federal authorities notified Nashville police, police said. He was terminated from the TSA after the investigation began.

Hawaii will go bust by 2016, Senate minority leader says

HONOLULU — Hawaii Senate Minority Leader Sam Slom is warning fellow lawmakers he has serious concerns about the state’s economic future.

The administration and Legislature will be challenged, Slom said, “in dealing with the mess resulting from kicking the can down the road for so many years.

The administration and Legislature will be challenged, Slom said, “in dealing with the mess resulting from kicking the can down the road for so many years.” “The final option to deal with the problem by raising taxes is the least desirable and burdensome for the people because we are already one of the highest taxing states in the nation,” Slom said.

St. Paul’s College president: Federal funds to house border kids like ‘manna from heaven’

ALEXANDRIA, Va. — When it closed last year, Lawrenceville’s private St. Paul’s College had some serious debts to pay.

St. Paul’s College President Pete Stith estimates the school’s guaranteed pension fund for former employees needs about $2.9 million. The shuttered school also owes mBank in Michigan about $1.3 million. On top of that, the college needs to cover about a quarter million dollars worth of other debts — like back pay to telephone services and power companies.

So accepting the federal government’s offer to pay the historically black college $160,000 a month for housing children who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally made financial sense. “If they’d stayed there long enough, meaning about three years, we think we would have had enough to pay off the debt,” Stith told Watchdog.org on Tuesday. “The debt was one of the reasons why the school closed.”

Mexico pays to help its citizens avoid deportation from US

Mexico is helping some of its citizens apply for a controversial immigration program in the U.S. called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

Since the Obama administration created the program in 2012, more than 580,000 unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors have received temporary relief from deportation and been given work permits that last for at least two years.

But 45 percent of those who are eligible for DACA have not applied, and the cost may be holding some back. Immigrants have to pay a total of $465 to the Department of Homeland Security for fees related to the work permit and for required fingerprinting.

California Launches Pilot Program To Charge Drivers By The Mile; Author admits law will "burden families"

In a surprisingly under-the-radar development, Governor Jerry Brown has signed into a law a program which will set up the infrastructure to charge California motorists by the mile. Brown signed SB-1077 into law. on September 29th. Officially titled 'Vehicles: road usage charge pilot program,' the law will create a task force to address all the aspects of a 'charge-drivers-by-the-mile' program in the state, which would replace the purportedly 'ineffective' and 'inadequate' gasoline tax. The bill's own author admits that "the mileage charge could burden families in California," and its' co-author admits that "the task force and pilot program will likely consume substantial resources."

The Greater Gaza Plan: Is Israel trying to force Palestinians into Sinai?

What is Israel’s endgame in Gaza? It is a question that has been puzzling analysts and observers for some time. But indications of the future Israel and Washington may have in mind for Gaza are emerging.

Desperately overcrowded, short on basic resources like fresh water, blockaded for eight years by Israel, with its infrastructure intermittently destroyed by Israeli bombing campaigns, Gaza looks like a giant pressure cooker waiting to explode.

It is difficult to imagine that sooner or later Israel will not face a massive upheaval on its doorstep. So how does Israel propose to avert a scenario in which it must either savagely repress a mass uprising by Palestinians in Gaza or sit by and watch them tear down their prison walls?

Eizenberg added that "the future war will require stronger abilities and more sacrifices to pay a bigger price."

Finally he added that "the main lesson we got from the Gaza assault was represented in the necessity of readiness of the home front, and the ability to provide services to the people in cases of emergency."

.01% scream, ‘More war!’ as a million children die from poverty every month; are you demanding arrests NOW?

*hyperlinks live at source*

The US has started 201 foreign armed attacks since WW2, causing the world’s peoples to conclude in polling that the US is indeed #1 as the most threatening nation to world peace. These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men. These US armed attacks have war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.

Importantly, US official reports now confirm all “reasons” for war the US .01% claimed were known to be false as they were told.

GMO companies are dousing Hawaiian island with toxic pesticides

The four transnational corporations that are experimenting with genetically engineered crops on Kauai have transformed part of the island into one of most toxic chemical environments in all of American agriculture.

For the better part of two decades, BASF Plant Science, Dow AgroSciences, DuPont Pioneer, and Syngenta have been drenching their test crops near the small town of Waimea on the southwest coast of Kauai with some of the most dangerous synthetic pesticides in use in agriculture today, at an intensity that far surpasses the norm at most other American farms, an analysis of government pesticide databases shows.

Each of the seven highly toxic chemicals most commonly used on the test fields has been linked to a variety of serious health problems ranging from childhood cognitive disorders to cancer. And when applied together in a toxic cocktail, their joint action can make them even more dangerous to exposed people.

Ebola In America: The Confirmed Case In Dallas, Texas Could Change Everything

The day that many of us hoped would never arrive is here. Ebola has come to America. Air travel between the United States and the countries of Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone should have been totally shut down except for absolutely essential personnel but it wasn't. And now our nation may end up paying a great price as a result.

Thought Crime: UK Leadership Wants To Ban Predicted 'Extremists' From Social Media, TV, Events

What's especially galling is the fact that May is claiming that this is being done in the name of "British values," which certainly suggests that freedom of speech and freedom to associate are, in fact, antithetical to British values. Also, all of this assumes that speech, alone, is somehow dangerous -- despite years of proof that speech by itself is rarely dangerous. However, the suppression of speech often creates more problems.

Ebola Is Now In The USA, But, You Have Nothing To Fear

That’s the message you’ll probably start hearing from the mainstream talking heads. The risk of Ebola spreading is little to none. The public has nothing to fear. -- Just because the CDC said that Ebola infections could reach 1.4 million by the end of January (worldwide), don’t worry – you will be fine. Ebola will always be somewhere else – not here…

Could polio or other vaccinations be behind the new "polio-like" Illness outbreak in California?

After years of massive administration of polio vaccine, India was declared polio-free and the last reported incidence of polio in India was in January 2011. Although the reported milestone has been widely publicized, what has not been so widely reported is that there were an extra 47,500 new cases in 2011 of the rare illness known as Non-Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis (NPAFP).

The incidence of NPAFP in India in 2011 was 12 times higher than expected and was found to be directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though it may be called "Non-Polio" the symptoms of NPAFP are clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis and the illness is twice as deadly.

Confirmed: India’s Polio Eradication Campaign in 2011 Caused 47,500 Cases of Vaccine-Induced Polio Paralysis

A paper published earlier this year in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics should have made headlines around the globe, as it estimated there were 47,500 cases of a polio-like condition linked to children in India receiving repeated doses of oral polio vaccine in 2011 alone. The incidence of non-polio Accute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) in India is now 12 times higher than expected and coincides with huge increases in OPV doses being given to children in the quest to “eradicate” wild type polio infection and paralysis.

Auschwitz Survivors recall fond memories of Orchestras, Grand pianos, painting murals, making tea, watching movies, playing soccer, buying cigarettes & beer with their paychecks, theatre productions

This is certainly not something you'll see in the mainstream media or in an ordinary classroom. A series of video interviews with elderly Jewish Auschwitz concentration camp survivors reveal some not-so-well-known facts about the camp. One survivor recalls the magnificent orchestra. "One musician was so good," she says, they had "not just a piano, a grand piano!" Another explains how there was a cantina in the camp where they could buy needed items, and tells the interviewer that yes they were allowed to have money, and he would buy things like cigarettes and beer. The only thing he wasn't impressed with was the 'weak beer'...

The US’ Unauthorised Air Strikes in Syria: Against or Favouring Wahhabism and the Islamic State?

Since the night of September 22/23, US fighter planes have been carrying out strikes with missiles and drones against targets in and around Raqqah, the city in the Northern part of Syria where are located the headquarters of ISIS’ self-proclaimed ‘Islamic state’. Four of the US’s Middle Eastern allies are known to be taking part in these aerial strikes. They signify not just an extension in the warfare the US had previously launched against ISIS positions in Northern Iraq, but herald a decisive break with President Obama’s past efforts to wind down and bring to an end the US’s involvement in Middle Eastern wars. Once again, as when the US had started its aggression for the overthrow of the Iraqi regime of Saddam Hussain (2003), – the current air strikes are clearly illegitimate.

Israeli settlers take over 25 homes in E.Jerusalem: residents

Israeli settlers forcefully took over 25 apartments in Arab east Jerusalem Tuesday, residents and Palestinian leaders said, with the new occupants claiming they had legitimately bought the properties.

The incident led to clashes between Arab residents and Jewish settlers in the Silwan neighbourhood, which is right outside Jerusalem's Old City, near the flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound.

It came after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas traded inflammatory accusations at the UN General Assembly in New York, making the prospects of peace look even bleaker.

Mohammed al-Khayat, whose family owns three apartments in one Silwan building, told AFP settlers had broken the locks on empty properties and then changed them.

US steps up interference in China amid Hong Kong pro-democracy protests

The United States has stepped up its interference in China’s internal affairs, saying Washington “supports the aspirations of the Hong Kong people” amid continuing pro-democracy protests in the Chinese territory.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest said on Monday Washington backs “universal suffrage in Hong Kong in accordance with the Basic Law and we support the aspirations of the Hong Kong people.”

Earnest said the legitimacy of Hong Kong’s chief executive will be greatly enhanced if he is elected by universal suffrage according to the Basic Law.

"ISIL crisis" plays right into Zionists hands

Rahm Emanuel, President Obama's first Chief of Staff – who also served as Obama's Israeli Mossad handler – famously said: "You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."

Individuals, groups, whole industries, even nations sometimes take advantage of crises and catastrophes. Big bankers, for example, love war because it forces governments to borrow vast sums of money at compound interest. Arms manufacturers also make huge profits. And the big government always gets bigger during wartime as it confiscates people's wealth and scales back their rights.
