THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly." -- Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine, "Complete Diaries,"June 12, 1895 entry.

A lack of intelligence

Australia's spies knew the United States was lying about Iraq's WMD programme. So why didn't the Government choose to believe them? Andrew Wilkie writes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following yesterday's radio show where we talked about how former Australian Prime Minister John Howard claimed to be embarrassed after realizing Saddam did not have nuclear weapons. But a listener sent in this article from 2003 which makes it clear that Australia's intelligence services all knew George Bush was lying about Saddam's WMD. A senior officer, Andrew Wilkie (now a member of parliament), resigned because he knew there were no WMDs and that Howard was p[art of the lie all along.

President Obama Explains Why He "Did Not Request Permission" To Invade Syria - Live Feed

Last night's airstrikes on ISIS in Syria came as a surprise to some (though apparently not ISIS who local reporters note had time to move weapons and personnel) as President Obama - and his local arab nation allies (acting in support), though notably no Western nations - unleashed hell on Assad's sovereign territory. The first stirrings of responses from Russia have been creeping out and now Israel is involved in the anti-ISIS coalition. The State Department has just confirmed that they did not give advance warning to the Syrian regime. If you are playing along at home, key words include "broad coalition", "Assad still a bad guy", "Vladimir who?", and "not Muslim."

Israel to Extradite Russian Priest Over Child Sex Abuse Charges

Israeli prosecutors are pushing to extradite a Russian priest linked to top football club Zenit St Petersburg who is wanted back home on charges of sexually assaulting two young girls.

The justice ministry said police had arrested Gleb Grozovsky, 35, on Sunday as a first step towards extraditing him after Russia issued an international arrest warrant over an alleged sexual assault on two girls, aged 9 and 12.

Anti-Zionism in the 21st Century

The essence of the Palestinian struggle is the battle against Zionism. It is a battle against its racism, against its murderous war crimes, against its insatiable territorial hunger, against its disdain for non-Jewish human rights, and against its devoted attempts to destroy Palestinian national identity. As voices of normalization are on the rise, and social media is invaded by paid pro-Zionist bloggers, there is an increased need for anti-Zionists to draw attention to the crimes committed by ‘Israel’, and to speak up against the ongoing media silence and the apologist activities of those misleadingly portraying themselves as ‘peace doves’. Let us first look briefly at the history of the anti-Zionist struggle, and then see where we stand today.

White House Has No International Legal Justification for Hitting ISIS in Syria

The White House has an answer for critics who want to know how the Obama administration can justify striking ISIS inside Syria under international law: If and when we actually do it, we will come up with a legal justification then.

The Obama administration has explained at length why it believes it has the domestic legal justification for using airstrikes in Syria; they have claimed they don’t need Congressional authorization because the 2001 authorization for the use of military force against the perpetrators of 9/11 and the 2002 authorization to take down Saddam Hussein applies to the ISIS war. The New York Times called the explanations “perplexing” and insufficient. (After all, al Qaeda and ISIS have sporadically fought with one another, and the Saddam regime is long gone.)

Playing with Fanatic Fire: How the Saudis (and the U.S.) have perilously exploited radical Islam in their pursuit of power

As the new war on ISIS widens, and the media war drums pick up the tempo, some nice breaks in the rhythm have been the few peeps made about the role of the U.S. and its allies (especially Saudi Arabia) in feeding the beast, by arming and training ISIS’s fellow travelers and prospective members in Syria.

Yet, this is no new phenomenon. Less-than-pious rulers (especially American presidents and decadent Saudi royals) have cynically harnessed radical Islam to fuel their worldly wars of conquest and dominance for centuries. And they have done so with the indispensable help of radical Islamic scholars, clerics, and preachers who formulate and communicate the doctrines that underpin that fanaticism.

FBI gags state and local police on capabilities of cellphone spy gear

The FBI requires state and local police to keep quiet about the capabilities of a controversial type of surveillance gear that allows law enforcement to eavesdrop on cell phone calls and track individual people based on the signals emitted by their mobile devices, according to a bureau document released recently under a Freedom of Information Act request.

The December 2012 document is a heavily redacted letter between the FBI and police in Tacoma, Wash., as the local department sought to acquire an IMSI catcher, sometimes described as a “fake cell phone tower” because it tricks individual phones into routing their calls and other data through the surveillance equipment. The Takoma police were buying gear produced by Harris Corp., a Florida-based company that makes the StingRay and other IMSI catchers used by law enforcement agencies across the country.

Israel prevents UN official from entering occupied Palestinian territories

The new UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in the OPT, Indonesian diplomat Makarim Wibisono, is set to undertake his first official visit to the region this week.

The statement said that Wibisono will gather first-hand information on the current human rights situation in the OPT following the July-August Israeli war, which resulted in at least 1,473 Palestinian civilians killed, including some 501 children.

Ex-British PM Blair Urges Ground Troops against ISIL

Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair said that air strikes on targets of the so-called 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL) in Iraq will not be enough to defeat the group, and did not rule out the possibility of sending in ground troops to combat the insurgency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Tony, if you really feel that way. Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of desert camo but here is a bright day-glo jumpsuit left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that military transport and we will call ISIL/ISIS/IS and tell them you are on your way to whip their butt all by yourself.

Meet the terror group in Syria that could actually threaten the US

For all the barbarity of ISIL and the focus on the military campaign against them, security analysts say the group doesn’t have the capability to directly attack the US—its threat is regional disruption. But US intelligence officials have spent the last week dropping hints about another al Qaeda off-shoot that does aim to attack Western countries at home, and it operates in ISIL’s backyard.

The organization is known as “the Khorasan group,” a reference to a historic territory encompassing modern Afghanistan and Iran. Like ISIL, it has has roots in al Qaeda, but unlike the militants attempting to seize territory in Iraq and Syria, the Khorasan group is still within al Qaeda’s hierarchy and focused on terror attacks in the West.

The Decline & Fall Of Europe: French Farmers Set Tax Office On Fire

French vegetable farmer have set a tax office and a building on fire destroying the government facility which was the symbol of the increasing administrative burden and sanctions that is killing farming. Hundreds of tractors and trailers of the farmers converged on Friday evening before the building of the Agricultural Social Insurance (MSA) in the town of Morlaix (Brittany). There they dumped unsold potatoes and artichokes before the MSA-building and added pallets and tires setting the entire lot on fire. Thereafter, the farmers moved on to the tax office set that on fire as well. The protests also took place in numerous other places as well, however, only these two government buildings were totally destroyed.

The U.N. says 7 in 10 Palestinians killed in Gaza were civilians. Israel disagrees.

GAZA CITY — The war in Gaza will now continue in a battle between databases to determine who was killed and why. The most contested number, the one that attracts the most stubborn insistence and ferocious rebuttal, is not the total fatalities on the Palestinian side, the more than 2,100 dead in the Gaza hostilities.

The controversy centers instead on the ratio of civilians to combatants, or as the Israelis call them “terrorist operatives.”
This number will help shape public opinion about the way the war was waged, its cost in human life and whether the hostilities were worth the casualties.

In its most recent count, the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs reports that 2,104 Palestinians were killed in Gaza, including 1,462 civilians, among them 495 children and 253 women. Those U.N. numbers would mean that 69 percent of the total killed were civilians.

Israel sprays "skunk water" into Palestinian homes

A new report highlights Israel’s use of supposedly “non-lethal weapons” against unarmed Palestinian protesters. The report – “Proven Effective: Crowd control weapons in the Occupied Territories” – was published by the group Who Profits and launched at a conference in Jerusalem on 10 September.

Focusing on tear gas, skunk water and “The Scream” (a high volume acoustic device strapped atop Israeli military vehicles), the report documents their regular use to violently crush unarmed Palestinian demonstrators throughout the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

It begins by reiterating two immensely important facts reported time and again by The Electronic Intifada: firstly, that Israel’s “non-lethal” weapons, in fact, often kill Palestinians, and secondly, that the manufacturing of weapons used against Palestinians is an extremely lucrative business

Eric Cantor Subpoenaed in Israel-China Terror Finance Suit

It’s been a few months of jarring ups and downs for former Majority Leader Eric Cantor and the Observer has exclusively learned that a new challenge is heading his way.

After becoming the highest-ranking Jewish member of Congress in history, Mr. Cantor suffered a stunning defeat in June, losing the Republican primary to a virtual unknown and almost immediately resigning his seat. Then things were looking up when he became vice chairman and managing director of investment bank Moelis & Company, with a salary of some $1.2 million and generous stock options.

But now, the Observer has exclusively learned that Mr. Cantor is being subpoenaed to a deposition in a case against the Bank of China. Meanwhile, the bank — and possibly the highest level of Israeli government — are frantically trying to block the former Congressman from testifying.

Waking Times

In many ways we’ve already selected monetary systems for termination. Money itself is not the root of all evil, however humans have bound money so tightly to contracts that it can no longer be used to benefit us in its current form and with the mindset to transcend all that it represents. Humanity has realized this and it’s only a matter of time before our monetary structures evolve to something else. That something will benefit all the struggles we currently face on our planet, including poverty, disease, oppression, greed and so much more.

Louisiana Police Chief Rapes Drunk Woman, Commits Perjury, Tells Town Officials to "Stick It" When They Call For His Resignation.

Police Chief Earl Theriot responded to a call for an intoxicated woman at a store. He took her back to the station and forced her to have sex with him. Theriot reportedly had the woman handcuffed and restrained with her belt at the time of the assault and stashed her under his desk in the police station.

When the woman filed a federal lawsuit against the chief, town officials called for his resignation. The chief denied he committed the crime and said "they can stick it." He lied to federal investigators about the incident, claiming she was never at the police station.

He then pleaded guilty and received a devastating sentence of PROBATION for two years (no jail time), a $2500 dollar fine, and was allowed to resign his job, which we can assume means he will keep his benefits.

Donor blackmail Silences Criticism of Israel

Donor blackmail is the last front line for the Zionists as they continue to suffer defeats in the battle for public opinion.

Due to Israel’s brutal racism and repeated attacks on Palestinian civilians, it is losing popular support internationally. As this happens, the Zionists appear to be intensifying pressure on societal and political elites, particularly in the U.S. and other Western states, to maintain policies that support and protect Israel’s criminal behavior.

If you cannot win by debate, how do you combat the growing popular suspicion of Israeli and Zionist actions? You do it by pressuring the donor-dependent elite leadership of institutions, such as universities and colleges, to suppress and punish those who criticize Israel.

Their vehicle for achieving this goal has always been financial gifts and donations to elite individuals and institutions.

Power: Syria Rebel Training to Aid in Fight Against Assad

US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power insisted the US plan to train and arm a new faction of Syrian rebels was not aimed simply at the destruction of ISIS, but was also meant to fight the Assad government in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Madame Ambassador, is it humanly possible for you to stop lying to both the American people and the world?!? OR is it conceivable that you, of ALL people, did not "get the memo"?!? As reported on 12 September, 2014, at antiwar.com:

Over the past few months, the Syrian Civil War has taken a back seat to the “war within a war” of faction fighting between ISIS and various other rebel groups. That seems to be coming to an end. Today, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that ISIS and other significant rebel factions, including both Islamist and “moderate” groups, have signed a mutual non-aggression pact in a Damascus suburb.

There are only two possibilities here; that you didn't know this to be the case (and in THAT scenario,you need to be sacked, and immediately, for utter, sloppy ignorance), or that you are lying to both the American people and the world.

The reason for an attack on Syria is about controlling its oil, and the monetary denominations in which such oil is - or is not - sold. You and this Administration are hoping ardently that such a blatant act of war against Syria will get Syria and Iran to invoke their mutual defense treaty, as the "justification" for an attack against Iran, ushering in regime change there also.

But understanding that the basic prerequisite for working for this administration is the complete, pathological inability to think ANYTHING through, let me ask a critical question here: what are you expecting Russia and China to do if the US attacks Iraq, Syria, and possibly Iran?!?

Is this the level of alleged collective reasoning that you, and your colleagues, do not understand the military and geopolitical ramifications of such an act?!? Are you all actively working toward a war with Russia and China which may very well go nuclear?!?

IF this is the design intent on the part of this Administration, the 25th amendment needs to be invoked against this President, immediately, and the rest of the administration get fired.

Because NO sane individual could possibly be advocating for a war against China and Russia by attacking Iraq, Syria, and Iran.

Middle East Tensions Manufactured By US / Israel Zionists

The US designedly engenders political-diplomatic conflict wherever it goes and whenever it can, not because it is integrally infantile or churlish, but because its geopolitical strategy of divide-and-conquer is integral to its ambition for unilateral global hegemony. Even divide-and-conquer is mere surface, the instrumental framework within which to realize an ideological deeply-ingrained counterrevolutionary ethos and world posture, the half-century thread of anticommunism never lost and recently transmuted into a doctrine of permanent war tightly attached to counterterrorism.

John McCain’s Whoops Moment: Photographed Chilling With ISIS

Does anyone remember when I wrote an article last year about John McCain being a traitor? Does the man in the red circle look familiar? Everyone put on your shocked face for John McCain’s whoops moment. It seems the Arizona Senator that is upset at Obama for the mess in Iraq was photographed chilling out with ISIS terrorist leaders in Syria!

Senator John McCain is making headlines but not for saying he was happy Eric Holder is persecuting illegal aliens or his lie about Holder investigating the VA, even though Eric Holder doesn’t have plans to prosecute people in the VA. He even seems a little hot under the collar about losing Iraq, but that isn’t why he’s in the headlines today.

He seems to forget that he was photographed, and those photographs were broadcast world wide, with the same individuals that are causing the trouble in Iraq and Syria and deemed too violent to represent Al Qaeda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note that the video that was supposed to go with this article is no longer available as YouTube has terminated the account! (They seem to be doing a lot of that these days!)

Mexico looks to quadruple number of migrants in U.S. basic education programs

Mexican government representatives have launched a literacy drive that aims to quadruple the number of adult migrants participating in a Mexican-developed basic education program in the United States.

The campaign unveiled Friday seeks a four-fold increase in the number of learners incorporated into basic literacy, elementary and middle-school education programs and a two-fold rise in the certification of those programs, according to sources with the Mexican Consulate-General in Los Angeles.

Officials with Mexico's Public Education Secretariat and National Institute for Adult Education, or INEA, launched the enrollment, accreditation and certification drive in that California city and will later extend it to other parts of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but... are these for LEGAL or ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?

And who please is supposed to pay for this, with both the Federal, and State governments broke?!? These seem to be questions the writer of this article worked very hard to evade.

Obama ‘ready for Syria ground war’ as Kurds flee

The United States will have to resort to sending “some troops on the ground” in Syria should President Barack Obama aim to destroy the Islamic State or Iraq and Syria (ISIS) group, a senior U.S. Congressman told this week’s Sunday Times.

The west is facing a “long, hard war” against ISIS, Republican Peter King said, adding that Obama was reviewing his refusal to send ground troops after military advisers said they would be needed.

These remarks come after 70,000 Syrian Kurds poured into Turkey since Friday fleeing an offensive by ISIS militants in northeastern Syria, the U.N.'s refugee agency said Sunday.

By ruling out sending troops to Syria, King said Obama is sounding an “uncertain trumpet.”

Following General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, address to Congress in which he said that ground intervention may be necessary; King said the “military message is getting through” to Obama.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Representative King: sir, military intervention here in the Middle East is the LAST approach the US should be taking at this time.

Americans understand that this is all about Middle Eastern oil, and in what national currency it will - or will not - be sold.

I would like to politely remind you that the US government does not have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength, to insure a positive outcome to such a military action. And if you don't believe me, take a good hard look at the debacles which have happened in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Yemen.

And any military attack against the sovereign nation of Syria will be considered by the rest of the world a blatant act of war upon it.

We understand, very clearly, that what the US and Israel hopes will happen here will be for Syria and Iran to invoke their joint mutual defense act, as the "reason" for attacking Iran, and creating regime change there.

But there is one piece of the equation you are deliberately NOT discussing with the American people, and that is: if either Syria and/or Iran are attacked, just what precisely will Russia and China do?!?

I do not think you believe that either Putin or the Duma, or the Chinese leadership, will sit collectively on their hands and start singing "Kumbya".

So is THIS your strategy for engaging in a war with Russia and China?!? If so, sir, you had better think again, and very carefully, about this.

Because of the US military not having the resources to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia, the US military will most likely employ its nuclear capabilities. And THAT is where things get truly ugly; the unintended consequences to this may be both horrific... and irreversible.

Russians To Build $3 Billion Strategic Platinum Mine In Zimbabwe

he good news for Zimbabwe is that Russian investors have started a new $3 billion (R33bn) platinum mine about 50km north-west of Harare. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe turned the first sod yesterday.

Lavrov and Mugabe launched the joint venture to develop the Zimbabwean deposit of platinum group metals in the Darwendale district. The mine was targeting production of 250 000 ounces annually within three years, the Zimbabwean ministry of mines said.

Peak production would be 800 000 ounces a year, which should help Zimbabwe produce 1 million ounces annually in five years time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF production estimates hit their goals, this will be a huge economic deal for both Russia and Zimbabwe.

How Russia is getting what it wants economically is through deals. What the US government is attempting to do (and so far, BADLY), is to achieve their economic goals through wars.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

Associated Press Investigates Americans Supporting ISIS - Forgets John McCain

In the latest attempt at misdirection by the mainstream media, the Associated Press has attempted to investigate and present a focus on Americans who become jihadist fighters in battlefields across the world such as Syria and Iraq and, eventually, the United States.

In their article, “Tracing Shift From Everyday Americans To Jihadis,” The Associated Press writers present the profile of American jihadists as lonely, unhappy individuals feeling lost and hopeless in the land of the free and endless entertainment....

OKC Mayor Is GOP Favorite- He FORBID Bikini Football, But Happily Welcomed Satanic Black Mass

Republican Mayor Mick Cornett, who hosted a satanic black mass on Oklahoma City property last night, previously stood his ground to vehemently forbid a women's bikini football team from participating on any OKC city-owned venues. The satanic-promoting mayor is oddly the darling of both the GOP and the Democrats: Cornett spoke at the Republcan National Convention in 2012 and was personally invited by Michelle Obama to attend the president's state of the Union in 2011. He regularly appears at Jewish events and is lauded by Jewish groups, and even personally lit the Manorah at a public Hanukkah celebration. Cornett is pictured on is website with politicians such as Bohemian Grove attendees George W. Bush and Newt Gingrich, as well as Dick Cheney & Michael Bloomberg. A dismal failure at his attempted run for U.S. Congress in 2006, Cornett nevertheless had high hopes for a future political position.

Fitch Warns: When the Dollar’s ‘Pre-Eminent Reserve Currency Status’ Erodes…

It’s very risky for an American credit ratings agency to downgrade the US Government.

Standard & Poor’s found out when it stripped the US off its AAA rating in 2011 over the debt-ceiling charade. The Department of Justice then sued S&P over its role in the financial crisis, i.e. for slapping AAA-ratings on toxic securities to pocket fatter fees from issuers. But the other ratings agencies did the same thing and have not been hounded. So S&P claimed that the “impermissibly selective, punitive and meritless” lawsuit was “in retaliation” for the downgrade.

Though the Government denied the retaliation angle, it was a lesson no credit ratings agency within the long and sinewy arm of the Government would ever forget. But now Fitch is inching gingerly toward that abyss. While it affirmed (text) the US at AAA, Outlook Stable, it threw in some potentially devastating caveats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a question of IF the US dollar will lose its global reserve currency status: it is a question of when.

Intelligent people, world-wide, are already factoring that into their financial decisions.

America Has its Own Growing Secession Movement

Back in 2008, the Middlebury Institute conducted a poll, asking Americans how they felt about secession. It's a tough question for Americans to answer, because “secession” has become such a politically charged term since the Civil War. Despite this, 22 percent of Americans agreed to the statement “any state or region has the right to peaceably secede from the United States and become an independent republic.” As in Scotland, this belief was far more prevalent among the younger generation as well as the poor. 40 percent of those ages 18-24 said they accepted the right to secession.

Black Listed News Front Page Follow Us Trending Search Advertise Contact Blog RollSenators look to lame-duck session to pass Internet sales tax bill

Top Senate lawmakers think they have found a way to allow states and local governments to tax Internet purchases: Link online sales taxes to separate legislation prohibiting Internet access taxes and pass it in the post-election lame duck session of Congress. The moratorium on access taxes runs out Dec. 11. A bill by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., titled the Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act, would extend the moratorium for a decade while allowing states to require online merchants to charge sales taxes. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the number-two ranking Democrat, is a co-sponsor. The backers are hoping that access taxes — which would slap levies on customers for their Comcast or Verizon Internet accounts — will be the more unpopular of the two provisions and that Congress will accept the sales taxes to get rid of them. -

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable. These folk in Congress are so collectively crooked that they have to screw their socks on in the morning.

Healthcare.gov Is A Security Disaster... And Those Working On It Knew It, And Tried To Stop Independent Security Review To Hide It

We've written before about how problematic the technology is behind the federal healthcare.gov website, pointing out that the federal government hired political cronies rather than web development experts to build it. There was an effort to open source the code, but after the feds put the code on github, they removed it after people started pointing out just how bad it was. Then, just about a month ago, we noted that the government turned down a FOIA request from the Associated Press concerning the site's security practices, arguing that it might "give hackers enough information to break into the service." As we noted at the time, if revealing the basic security you have in place will give hackers a road map to breaking into the site, the site is not secure at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The MO of this administration has become very painfully clear; first, screw things up beyond all recognition, then attempt to cover up the screw-up with misdirection, denial, blame-throwing, and without ever, EVER fixing the problem in the first place.

When Ben Franklin finally exited, a citizen asked, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” “A republic,” Franklin responded “if you can keep it.”

Get Your Christmas Gifts From The Police State!

From the "you can't make this up" files...

Amanda Warren

So perhaps you think that warrantless checkpoints, random DNA sampling, no-knock SWAT raids to smoke out some criminals, and an array of high-tech weapons and drones were the only gifts bestowed upon society by a rightly outfitted militarized U.S. police force. Freedom isn't free after all!

In at least a couple of locations last year, Santa had a personal escort in his mission of gift-giving. Because, these days, even Santa Claus is under attack from freedom-hating terrorists and criminals - ESPECIALLY because they are all Muslim (big wink). So, last year, Silver Spring, Maryland - population 70,000 - exchanged Santa's Sleigh for a Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck, commonly known as a BearCat, so that he could safely distribute gifts and donations amid an elevated threat level...

The shortfall comes despite a 10-fold increase in NASA’s annual budget over the past five years – from $4 million in 2009 to $40 million in 2014 - to track and assess potentially dangerous asteroids and comets.

He said if the Scottish Parliament was given more powers until “you have a situation where you’re independent in all but name … “then presumably, you declare yourself to be independent”.

“Many countries have proceeded through that route,” he said in an interview with Sky News’ Murnaghan programme.

General ‘Breedhate’ in Another Sabotage Sortie

The irresponsible language of Four-Star General Breedlove in exacerbating the crisis makes one wonder if his name should not henceforth be known as General “Breedhate”.

US Air Force General Philip Breedlove strafed the renewed peace plan for Ukraine before it barely got off the ground at the weekend, thereby aiming to shoot down another political bid to end months of deadly violence in the country.

It’s not the first time that the NATO military chief has used high-flown rhetoric to preempt a diplomatic solution to end the fighting in war-torn eastern Ukraine. That conflict has claimed nearly 3,000 lives over the past six months, with up to one million civilians displaced and millions more trapped in a spiralling humanitarian crisis.

Ooooooooooooh, it's Lonely at the Top.

I like my songwriters to be on the right side of history. Most of them aren't. They've all crumbled before the altar of wealth, excess, privilege and VIP invites. Sometimes an artist can ride the waves and have success and demonstrate a conscience and sometimes an artist is pushed to the margins, blackballed and sundry. A true artist is less concerned with this and more mindful of who he or she works for and... if you are a true artist, well... you do the math.. The question of what comprises a true artist may be a difficult one to answer in a time where they are, pretty much, nowhere to be seen. The powers that stink have barred the door to that form of expression. That's why we got, “uh uh uh uh oh, oh oh oh oh uh and uh uh uh uh oh.” all the way from Bimbo Rock to the Olympian rockers.

Too many people to be involved in such a conspiracy?

The simplicity of a referendum in which people are asked to place an X beside a simple Yes or No answer works great in a world where people can be assumed to be honest and to 'play by the rules'.

Pentagon Prepares To Unveil Syria War Plans As "Broad Coalition" Crumbles

A day after US ambassador to The UN Samantha Powers stated, "we will not do the airstrikes alone if the president decides to do the airstrikes," and Russia warned, "bombing Syria without the cooperation of Damascus can have destructive practical consequences on the humanitarian situation in Syria," it appears President Obama's grand strategy to combat IS via a 'broad coalition' of allies is flailing. While the WSJ reports, The Pentagon is preparing war plans in Syria that would include an intensive initial wave of strikes against Islamic State targets, Germany's Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier explained today that providing air support or sending ground troops to fight Islamic State is "out of the question for us."

For example, Bill McKibben, a principal organizer of the People’s Climate March, has built a career around the false notion that minuscule increases in carbon dioxide are a principal cause of “extreme weather” events.

BEX ALERT - John Kerry declares Syria regime has broken chemical weapons deal

John Kerry, the US secretary of state, has declared Syria had breached its commitments to stop using chemical weapons in the civil war by using chlorine gas in attacks earlier this year.

Following a Telegraph investigation established that chlorine gas was used in attacks on the villages of Kfar Zita and Talmenes in April, Mr Kerry confirmed that the attacks amounted to a breach of the Chemical Weapons Convention.

“We believe there is evidence of [President Bashar al-] Assad’s use of chlorine, which when you use it - despite it not being on the list - it is prohibited under the Chemical Weapons Convention,” Mr Kerry told the US House of Representatives. “He’s in violation of the convention.”

FTC shuts down $11M online diploma mill

The Federal Trade Commission on Friday pulled the plug on an online high school diploma mill that allegedly raked in $11 million since opening its virtual doors in 2006.

The FTC says the mill generally charged between $200 and $300 for its “diplomas.” Let’s call it $250. That means 44,000 individuals had “graduated” from this “school” since 2006.

6 Notoriously Misleading Food Terms Used To Trick Consumers

by Arjun Walia

Our modern-day food industry has become quite the debacle, with chemicals being sprayed all over our fruits and vegetables, to genetically modifying to processed food. As a result, the world has seen a large resistance to modern-day food practices, and the resistance continues to grow for good reason.

The marches against Monsanto over the past few years are a perfect example of that, where millions of people all across the globe gathered to protest the existence and agricultural practices of the biotech giant.

There are also numerous studies available that justify the critical questioning of our food industry; and, as many of us know, there are corporations out there that are willing to do anything, including lie, if it means that their product will continue to generate a large profit.

Congress Votes for More War in the Middle East

Last week, the House and Senate voted to rubber stamp President Obama's war plans for the Middle East. Both bodies, on a bipartisan basis, authorized the US to begin openly training and arming the rebels who have been fighting for three years to overthrow the Assad government in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

... as opposed to having covertly supported them right from the start. I think we ought to load the entire Congress into military transports, hand them rifles, and send them to Syria. Congress (and Obama) are splendidly brave with other people's lives. It's time to see the measure of their true courage and commitment to war!

US admits there is a much scarier terrorist group than ISIS

New intelligence has emerged warning Washington that its upcoming confrontation with the Islamic State may leave it blind to a more sinister and direct threat from a much lesser known terrorist group that has arisen from the ashes of the Syrian war.

Very little information is being released at the moment by anyone within American intelligence circles, but the group calling itself Khorasan is said by officials to have concrete plans for striking targets in the United States and Europe as a chosen modus operandi – more so than the Islamic State (IS), formerly known as ISIS.

Moscow warns ‘circles in Washington’ over hindering peace process in Ukraine

Moscow is bewildered by Washington’s warmongering rhetoric, which accompanied President Petro Poroshenko’s visit to the US. Russia has also noted all the Russia-unfriendly opinions voiced recently by hawkish American politicians.

“We’ll keep in mind all signals, including those unfriendly towards Russia, that were heard during the visit of the Ukrainian president to Washington,” commented Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov. “We do regret that there are quite influential circles [within the American establishment] that are unambiguously working against the emerging stabilization [in Ukraine],” Ryabkov said.

Understanding The Missing Heat

A few years ago climate experts explained the discrepancy between theory and satellite temperatures as being due to missing heat at the bottom of the sea.

Climate science has advanced since then, and now they say that the missing heat is at the sea surface – but mysteriously is not finding its way into the lower troposphere. It is that new kind of Mann-made heat which doesn’t radiate or diffuse.

Panetta says US paying the price for not arming Syrian rebels

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Sunday that he believes the Islamic State terror group was able to flourish in part because the U.S. entered the conflict in Syria too late, saying the Obama administration should have armed the country’s moderate rebels earlier.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the US should have done was leave other countries alone and build peace through commerce based on strong manufacturing and agriculture. But the US financial system became lazy because of the wealth pouring in through Bretton-Woods forcing the rest of the world to borrow dollars at interest before they could engage on cross-border trade and banking, and the petro-dollar deal, which collected the same mafia-like "piece of the action" for natural resources around the globe. So, to force the world to continue this scheme, the US Government has followed a policy of covert overthrow of foreign governments and installation of puppet regimes that loot their own people to prop up the American empire. Since the end of WW2 the US has covertly tried to overthrow the governments of more than fifty other nations, succeeding about half the time. Well-known successes are Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. Well known failures would include Iran in 2009 and Ukraine. The US started to covertly overthrow Syria more than three years ago. The so-called "moderate" rebels are for the most part hired foreign mercenaries. The failed campaign to oust Assad has seriously destabilized the region and brought us to the edge of global war, and Panetta's solution is to do more of the exact same thing that got us into this mess in the first place!

Israeli Propaganda Campaign Fails To Hide Web of Lies

In corporate jargon, Israel’s assault on Gaza is akin to that of a monopoly which undertakes unfair business practices to crush a small competitor’s attempt to increase its market share.

At the heart of Operation Protective Edge is a top-down marketing plan, implemented by Israeli ‘Chief Executive’ Benjamin Netanyahu, which seeks to disguise Israeli crimes, whilst profiting financially from the bankruptcy of Gaza.

Rigged Gold Price Distorts Perception of Economic Reality

Paul Craig Roberts and Dave Kranzler
Activist Post

The Federal Reserve and its bullion bank agents (JP Morgan, Scotia, and HSBC) have been using naked short-selling to drive down the price of gold since September 2011. The latest containment effort began in mid-July of this year, after gold had moved higher in price from the beginning of June and was threatening to take out key technical levels, which would have triggered a flood of buying from hedge funds.

The Fed and its agents rig the gold price in the New York Comex futures (paper gold) market. The bullion banks have the ability to print an unlimited supply of gold contracts which are sold in large volumes at times when Comex activity is light...

BEX ALERT - The Coming Climate Revolt

The corporate elites, blinded by their lust for profit and foolish enough to believe they can protect themselves from climate change, will not veer from our path towards ecocide unless they are forced from power. And this means the beginning of a titanic clash between our corporate masters and ourselves.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article is pushing the idea that the social order must change to save the world from global warming. Setting aside the futility of basing social change on a failed concept, this article underscores the fact that the Human-Caused Global Warming hysteria was never about the Earth but about controlling people.

Violation of International Law: Where is Obama’s “Authorization to Use Force” in Iraq

There was much enthusiasm in 2008 that President Barack Obama would bring a saner and more lawful approach to issues of foreign policy and war and peace. Six years later — with Americans still being killed in Afghanistan, Guantanamo Bay still in active operation, US drones killing people in several countries and even American citizens, and now new mischief in Iraq — it is clear that President Obama has done little more than expand the already large war-making powers of his predecessor and fully enabled the vision of a “unitary executive” with unfettered powers in war and peace.

Silliest Nobel Peace Prize Awarded

The world had hoped President Obama would deliver on his promises of peace and reconciliation and CHANGE the deeply dysfunctional system and its figureheads, when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in advance.

I had hoped Obama was demonstrating perhaps more obviously than his predecessors just how captive the American President is of his Washington influence groups and their representatives, both Hill and Lobby. He was making himself visibly trapped in the oligarchy.

It was wishful thinking. I think true public servants are few and far in between. In fact, I doubt that such has ever really existed, except in the scripts of Political advisor’s, campaign managers and the fantasies of the electorate.
