End Torture, Shut Down the CIA!

Remember back in April, 2007, when then-CIA director George Tenet appeared on 60 Minutes, angrily telling the program host, “we don’t torture people”? Remember a few months later, in October, President George W. Bush saying, “this government does not torture people”? We knew then it was not true because we had already seen the photos of Iraqis tortured at Abu Ghraib prison four years earlier.

25 Recent Events in Ukraine the U.S. Wants You To Forget

Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.

I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”.

In fact, they want in on the action. The Pentagon began wargaming this week with the regime in Ukraine on how best to kill pesky citizens in Eastern Ukraine who oppose the U.S. Vice President’s son stealing and fracking shale gas on their land.

People who defend their land and families are called “terrorists” when imperial powers want their resources. In turn, Western rulers call violent coups “duly elected” if they pledge allegiance to the IMF.

Hackers Plundered Israeli Defense Firms that Built ‘Iron Dome’ Missile Defense System

Three Israeli defense contractors responsible for building the “Iron Dome” missile shield currently protecting Israel from a barrage of rocket attacks were compromised by hackers and robbed of huge quantities of sensitive documents pertaining to the shield technology, KrebsOnSecurity has learned.

The never-before publicized intrusions, which occurred between 2011 and 2012, illustrate the continued challenges that defense contractors and other companies face in deterring organized cyber adversaries and preventing the theft of proprietary information.

According to Columbia, Md.-based threat intelligence firm Cyber Engineering Services Inc. (CyberESI), between Oct. 10, 2011 and August 13, 2012, attackers thought to be operating out of China hacked into the corporate networks of three top Israeli defense technology companies, including Elisra Group, Israel Aerospace Industries, and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Court Ends Private Property Rights: All Water To Be Controlled By Government

Democrat Senator Fran Pavley has a bill that would give the State the responsibility of “managing” all groundwater. That means the water projects and the groundwater will be controlled by government—which will pick the winners and loser. Government will decide if you can use your private property—water—to grow your crops or be forced at the barrel of a gun give your water to your neighbor that paid nothing for the well you dug and now he will use. Want to collapse agriculture in this State literally overnight, give control of water to government.

Paying for Israel’s wars

While the mounting human losses in the current battle between Hamas and Israel rightly preoccupy the world, the financial costs of Israel’s three-week long war with Gaza are also astonishing. According to one estimate, rockets from Gaza will potentially cost Israel about $30 million in direct damage (and at this point, three civilian lives lost), while the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) response will cost about $1 billion. Why do Israelis accept paying these financial costs of the war for a relatively small direct threat?

Still Torn by Factional Fighting, Post-Revolt Libya Is Coming Undone

For weeks, rival Libyan militias had been pounding one another’s positions with artillery, mortar rounds and rockets in a desperate fight to control the international airport in the capital, Tripoli. Then suddenly, early Saturday morning, the fighting just stopped.

The pause came as United States military warplanes circled overhead, providing air cover for a predawn evacuation of the American Embassy’s staff. Apparently fearing the planes, the militias held their fire just long enough for the ambassador and her staff to reach the Tunisian border — a reminder to Libyans of how even their most powerful allies were incapable of putting out their incendiary feuds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really happening in Libya is a replay of what happened in Iran in 1979 and is also happening in Iraq. The people are tired of their imposed US puppet rulers and are taking their nation back. But this is a reality the New York Times (who assured us all that Saddam had nuclear weapons) dares not report.

Washington threatens to intervene in east Ukraine fighting

In a reckless maneuver posing the risk of direct clashes between the United States and Russia, Washington is moving to escalate the civil war in east Ukraine by directly involving US forces in the targeting of Russian-backed separatist groups.

The Pentagon and the CIA have drawn up plans for providing “real time” information on the location of missile batteries or other targets controlled by pro-Russian forces. While the White House has yet to announce a decision on the precise course of action it will follow, the plans to escalate US involvement are strongly supported by Secretary of State John Kerry.

How many Palestinians have been killed in Gaza?

The total population of the United States is 313.9 million people. Suppose some Martian power invaded the US and started bombing it coast to coast from land, sea, and air and killed precisely the same percentage of Americans, namely 0.055 percent. How many Americans would that be? It comes down to 172,852 people - men, women, children, and even entire families.

I looked at a chart of the major US cities and this equals the average population of some 50 major US cities - ranging from Garden Grove in California to Providence in Rhode Island! That's how many Palestinians Israel has killed so far, if we were to factor in the size and proportionately project it to the population of the United States.

What would President Obama do if after fourteen days of relentless bombardment by these fictive Martians some 172,852 Americans were to be slaughtered in any one of these cities? Would he say something similar to "Israel has every right to defend itself?" I seriously doubt it.

Second Turkish Gaza flotilla will have military escort, group says

The Turkish pro-Palestinian organization IHH announced that its second Gaza flotilla will be launched soon - and will be afforded protection by the Turkish Navy, Israel's NRG reported on Sunday.

The group's chairman told local Turkish media that the mission, titled 'Freedom Flotilla II,' was in the process of finalizing the legal paperwork needed to commence on the trip, and would embark as soon as it got the necessary permissions.

This fleet, as opposed to the group's previous one that was intercepted by the Israeli navy in 2010, would be protected by the Turkish Navy, he said.

The results, given today by Ukrainian security official Andriy Lysenko, have, however, left Dutch officials stunned as they did not expect the "premature" announcement.

Mr Lysenko told a news conference that the fragments had come from a rocket blast.

His source however, is under scrutiny after the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) confirmed they did not give the information to Ukraine.

DSB spokeswoman Sara Vernooij told The Independent: "I can’t make a comment on what source Mr. Lysenko has.

"We don’t want to confirm or say anything about the information on the black boxes right now; this in the best interest of the investigation itself."

Obama Seeks to Dramatically Broaden US War on Terror

The news that President Obama was looking at getting Congress to remove the 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), as well as the 2002 AUMF that led to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, was initially seen as a possible climbdown from the position of eternal American warfare.

Instead, White House officials are now saying that the old 9/11 AUMF is “outdated” and less useful in their current warmongering, primarily because it is so difficult to spin factions that didn’t exist 13 years ago as something to do with 9/11.

The “repeal” is really a cover for what they are now calling the “evolving” of the global war on terrorism, and the introduction of a new, broader authority for the president to attack whatever flavor-of-the-week enemy he can get the terrorist label to stick to.

Obama administration grants architects of torture sneak peak at Senate Intelligence Committee report on CIA programs

In close collaboration with the Central Intelligence Agency, President Obama has granted the masterminds of the Bush administration’s torture programs access to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA torture in advance of the report’s expected August publication. The report includes material gathered from the agency’s “Internal Panetta Review.”

The move is the most recent in a series of steps taken by the Obama administration to protect those responsible for establishing and operating an unconstitutional network of secret dungeons and torture chambers around the world.

FLASHBACK - The Five Dancing IsraelisArrested On 9-11

A Mossad surveillance team made quite a public spectacle of themselves on 9-11.
The New York Times reported Thursday that a group of five men had set up video cameras aimed at the Twin Towers prior to the attack on Tuesday, and were seen congratulating one another afterwards. (1)

Police received several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern" men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy and mockery. (2)

"They were like happy, you know … They didn't look shocked to me" said a witness. (3)
[T]hey were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. (4)

Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact (5). Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. (6)

FLASHBACK - The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

This is an old intelligence trick called "Poisoning the well", the intentional promotion of lies to blend with an embarrassing truth to discredit it. And the intensity with which the propagandists are pushing this no-plane nonsense is easily explained by the fact that they have nothing else at all with which to defend the official story. The sheer fury with which this story has been met both here at WRH andover at the radio show betrays a sense of panic within the government that the American people know 9-11 was a war-starting hoax. "No plane" is the last card they have to play.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a bunch of presumably Israeli trolls following me all around the net trying to poison the well on various discussions by claiming that there was not only no plane at the Pentagon but also at the World Trade towers. Their sole argument is that the aluminum of the aircraft could not crash through the steel of the World Trade Towers. Of course, the outer walls of the World Trade Towers were not steel, but also of aluminum. I don't intend to get into this discussion, but here is a repost of the arguments against the "no-planers."

Israel And The Logic of Being Untouchable

Terror and dread. There isn’t a right-thinking human being in the world having witnessed what Israel did to the civilian population of Gaza recently who doesn’t understand this concept now. Every single Prime Minister, president, sultan, emir, and even the Pope himself, having watched this event and the complete lack of conscience on the part of–not just the Jewish state in the Middle East, but indeed the Jewish people worldwide, did a quick count of Israel’s 200 nuclear weapons, Jewish control of finance and economics in their respective countries and who then understood the very powerful yet subtle message being sent. Just as those seated around the table when that guy’s brains were beaten out all over the place in The Untouchables, likewise every person of measurable power in the world now understands how easily they could wind up in place of the Palestinians in Gaza if they don’t play their cards right.

Netanyahu: Israelis Must Be 'Ready For A Prolonged Campaign' In Gaza

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that Israel must be ready for a "prolonged" military operation in the Gaza Strip and will "act aggressively and responsibly" until the mission is completed.

Netanyahu said Israel will "not end the operation without neutralizing the tunnels whose only purpose is" to kill civilians.

"We need to be ready for a prolonged campaign," he said. "We will continue to act aggressively and responsibly until the mission is completed to protect our citizens, soldiers and children."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....responsibly", MY ASTROLABE!!!

Israel army warns Palestinians around Gaza City to flee

The Israeli army on Monday sent messages to thousands of Palestinians living near Gaza City to flee shortly after a mortar shell killed at least four people in Israel.

“A short while ago, phonecalls were made and text messages were sent out to the civilian population of Shejaiya, Zeitun and eastern Jabaliya calling them to evacuate immediately towards central Gaza City,” a statement from the army said, referring to three areas to the north, south and east of Gaza City.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?

Because I just saw an image of a massive bomb attack on Gaza City; was this the IDF's intent, bombing innocent men, women and children they had ordered, through instructions from these phone calls and texts to be there, to have them massed there, just at the time this bombardment started?!?

The Israeli leadership, and IDF leadership, have the morals of a trout!

Ebola only a plane ride away from USA

"A case very well could fly out of Africa, only to be detected in some distant country," says Osterholm, who served as an adviser to the George W. Bush administration on bioterrorism.

But Ebola "would not pose a major public health risk" in the USA, he says.

Ebola is unlikely to cause large outbreaks here, he says, because people need to be in intimate contact to spread the virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any contact, not just "intimate", can result in infection. The doctors in Africa who have become infected prove that, as we may presume they are taking precautions to avoid "intimate" contact with their patients. The known Ebola strains cannot survive in the air for very long, but can survive inside microscopic droplets of fluid such as those ejected by a cough or a sneeze. Until the moisture evaporates, the virus is still viable and infected. Commonly shared surfaces such as restroom fixtures, door handles, and touch screens can transmit the disease. And, were the virus to mutate, as Ebola is known to do rapidly, a simple change to the protein coat could make it able to survive in the air long enough to be transmitted like a cold. This is a serious problem, and it alarms me that the US Government is still obsessing about Gaza, Russia, and the illegal immigrants, and treating the potential for Ebola to come here to the US (courtesy of the aforesaid illegal immigrants) as of minor importance.

There is no cure for Ebola.

There is no vaccine.

This strain of Ebola kills half the people it infects.

Is this the start of a world depopulation program?

Ukraine's use of unguided rockets in civilian areas of Donetsk 'may be war crimes'

Human Rights Watch has gathered evidence in the war zones of Eastern Ukraine which show that Ukrainian government forces have violated the laws of war by using 'notoriously imprecise' rockets in civilian areas, destroying homes, killing and injuring non-combatants.

Unguided Grad rockets launched apparently by Ukrainian government forces and pro-government militias have killed at least 16 civilians and wounded many more in insurgent-controlled areas of Donetsk and its suburbs in at least four attacks between July 12 and 21, 2014, according to Human Rights Watch.

The use of indiscriminate rockets in populated areas violates international humanitarian law, or the laws of war, and may amount to war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, YA THINK?!?!?

What SHOULD have been resolved through honest, hard negotiations between the separatist rebels and Kiev is now, courtesy of Poroschenko and his US/EU enablers, being resolved by a bloodbath.

Every day, innocent kids, women, and the medically fragile elderly are being slaughtered and maimed for life, because Poroschenko refuses to negotiate.

The pictures of this carnage you see at WRH are NOT BEING SHOWN by the corporate presstitutes, because they do not want the public to see how horrifically barbaric this slaughter is.

America is buying disputed Iraqi Kurdish Crude Oil

Today a Marshall Islands-flagged tanker ‘United Kalavrvta’ carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan was anchored near the Port of Galveston, Texas, despite Washington’s long-standing concern over independent oil sales from the autonomous region. It would be at least the second time a U.S. company has taken delivery of oil that the Baghdad government says was smuggled from the country.

The semi-autonomous government in Kurdistan argues the exports are within its rights under Iraq’s federal constitution, but Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki insists all Iraqi oil must be brokered by the state oil company.

The shipment is significant because it is one of the first from the new pipeline through Turkey, which Baghdad emphatically calls a smuggling operation. To make matters more tense with Baghdad, the Kurds siezed northern oil fields from ISIS control to keep them out of the hands of the Jihadist insurgents who control the northwest of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is just a question of time before the government in Baghdad collapses completely, and Kurdistan's officials have been making statements about creating a completely independent country here.

Ultimately, like it or not, the US is going to have to deal with an independent Kurdistan, with oil to sell.

Admitted Liar Claims Russia Is Shooting Artillery Into Ukraine

Should We Believe a Known Liar?

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is an known liar:

One of the nation’s top military and constitutional law experts – Professor Jonathan Turley – writes:

National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared before Congress and lied about the program. He later said that he gave the least untruthful statement he could think of. But it was nevertheless untrue and potentially a crime for which he could be prosecuted.

And a huge majority of Americans agree that Clapper should be prosecuted for perjury.

Should we believe a known liar?

Clapper now claims that satellite photos show that Russia fired artillery into Ukraine.

The Pentagon and State Department first accused Russian artillery of firing directly into Ukraine on Thursday. The charges were repeated Friday, although no evidence was offered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nothing anyone says in the Federal government can be considered as the truth, and Clapper is no exception to this reality.

In fact, were President Obama to knock on our door here on Oahu, and tell me that the sun was shining, I would be morally obligated to walk out the door and look for myself.

Intl. teams find ‘no violations’ by Russia along Ukrainian border

Inspectors who came to check the state of Russian troops along the Ukrainian borders have found no violations, Russia’s Ministry of Defense said. This came as a response to the US alleging 15,000 Russian troops have amassed in the area.

“It has come to our attention that new allegations by top US officials as to the alleged amassing of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border have been voiced,” the statement by the Defense Ministry read, following allegations by the US Permanent Representative to NATO, Douglas Lute, and State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf.

“The last four months have witnessed 18 separate inspections along the Ukrainian border with the Russian Federation, all in line with the Vienna Open Skies Treaty and the Vienna agreement of 2011.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By now, both thinking Americans and the world expect the US government to lie,to forward its geopolitical agenda, and the corporate presstitutes to regurgitate precisely the same lies to the world.

The problem is that this government has destroyed its credibility so completely, that even if, for a a moment, they actually told the truth about anything, no one would believe them.

Barack Obama has already checked out of his job The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing

President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell?

Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.

You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.

StingRay: US Police have Used Fake Mobile Base Stations to Spy on Citizens

A civil liberties group has discovered emails showing that the US government has concealed police use of fake mobile base stations which can spy on citizens without requiring search warrants since at least 2009.

Emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show that federal law enforcement officials insisted police in Sacramento, Florida conceal their use of the devices, known as "StingRay", in order to prevent criminals from learning how to get around them.

Sgt. Ken Castro of the Sarasota Police Department sent emails to members of the North Port Police Department in April 2009, informing them that the US Marshals Service requested that police not disclose StingRay in court depositions, but instead refer to it as "information from a confidential source regarding the location of the suspect".

The North Port Police Department implemented the new rules and continues to avoid mentioning StingRay, according to the emails.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israel: "USA did a Strategic Strike on us"

"The Strategic Terror Attack of Kerry" announced the absurd headline of Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the most serious in the country and widely considered to be the unofficial voice of the Shin Beth secret police, on July 28, 2014.

The newspaper was referring to the attempt of the U.S. Secretary of State to achieve a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel with the help of Turkey and Qatar.

As scientists, physicians, academics, and experts from disciplines relevant to the scientific, legal, social and safety assessment aspects of genetically modified organisms (GMOs),[1] we strongly reject claims by GM seed developers and some scientists, commentators, and journalists that there is a “scientific consensus” on GMO safety[2] [3] [4] and that the debate on this topic is “over”.[5]

The demonstrators made a short tour of financial institutions in midtown Manhattan that are supporting Israeli policies financially and aiding in colonization. The demonstrators stopped at 2 banks and walked through the diamond district where many were glad to have a heavy police escort since the business owners appeared to become
agitated and threatening. In front of one of the banks 6 people performed an act of civil disobedience by having a die-in after spraying the bank and street with fake blood. Using passive resistance, the police were forced to lift and carry them to the police van to arrest them.

How Capitalism Is Cheating Young Americans

Our country's wealthy white once-idealistic baby boomer generation has cheated those of you entering the working world. A small percentage of us have taken almost all the new wealth since the recession. Our Silicon Valley CEOs have placated you with overpriced technological toys that are the result of decades of American productivity, but which have mainly profited the elite members of their industries.

Although none of us in the older generations can speak for you, we can help you research the facts. And the facts are painfully clear.

But back in Jerusalem, where sixteen-year-old Muhammad Abu Khudair was burned alive by Jewish vigilantes in a “revenge killing” incited by Israeli politicians early this month, right-wing lynch mobs continue to roam the streets in search of Arabs to attack.

Their most recent victims are twenty-year-old Palestinians Amir Shwiki and Samer Mahfouz from the Beit Hannina neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem. The pair were severely beaten into unconsciousness on Friday night by Israeli youths armed with iron bars and baseball bats.

Dead Zones Throughout The Gulf Of Mexico, BP Never Cleaned Up 2010 Oil Spill

There have been several significant developments over the past few decades in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) which now require special and immediate attention. The multitude of oil spills — both large and small — require extraordinary remediation measures, as well as the application of proven technologies which will not make the existing hydrocarbon pollution worse. There are other major sources of water pollution in the GOM which have also became apparent, particularly since the eye-opening 2010 BP oil spill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

During the TV coverage of the repair to the Deepwater Horizon drill head, it was documented that the ocean floor fractured by the drilling was allowing methane to seep up through the gulf waters. Methane depletes the oxygen in water by combining with it to form carbon dioxide and more water. This is the method by which the BP oil operations are killing off sea life in the Gulf, and fracking is killing off the fish in America's lakes and rivers.

China Cements Eurasian Trade Routes With Great Silk Road Revival:

When it comes to the rise of Eurasia as the ascendent axis set to oppose US global hegemony, conventional wisdom focuses on the roles of China and Russia. However, the changing geopolitical landscape is certainly far more nuanced than merely the "west" versus the BRICS, and as the following infographic from SCMP shows, China has been quietly working to recreate one of the most legendary trade routes, "the Silk Road", linking Africa to the Middle East (Iraq and Iran) to India, to Indonesia and all culminating in Beijing, while at the same time the reverse leg of the route goes to Kazakhstan, Moscow and ultimately, Germany. The purpose: "to enhance political and economic ties with southeast Asia and beyond."

Ukraine civil war death toll 1,100, over 3,500 wounded - UN

Some 1,129 people have been killed and nearly 3,500 wounded in eastern Ukraine since the start of the Kiev's military operation in April, according to UN estimates.

Live updates on the Kiev's bloody campaign in the east

The report also states that these are the minimum casualty toll estimates by the UN monitoring mission and WHO.

The report says that the cause of the rising death toll is intensified artillery shelling of the civilian residential areas and the so-called “collateral damage” of the armed actions in the heavily-populated areas.

Also, 100,000 people were forcibly displaced in eastern Ukraine.

This story thrust the topic of GMOs back into the minds of millions of people, which was of course the whole point. It also helped introduced terms into the minds of the public like "Monsanto collaborators" and "agricultural holocaust." Critics of the article only helped this effort by pointing to it and bringing more traffic to Natural News, causing our email subscriber list to rapidly explode over the last few days.

There has been a subtle shift in Narendra Modi’s attitude towards Bangladesh.

The reason is very simple. China is now spreading its influence in Bangladesh very fast and India does not want to lose the confidence of Hasina Wazaed, the prime minister of Bangladesh, who is always looked upon in New Delhi as a traditional ally.

Israel, not Hamas, orchestrated the latest conflict in Gaza

In the ongoing conflict between Israel and Hamas, the dominant discourse is that the Palestinian militants provoked the hostilities — while Israel, as President Barack Obama affirmed last week, is acting in legitimate self-defense. Many have attempted to problematize this narrative, for instance by arguing that Israel, as an occupying power, does not have a legitimate legal or moral claim to self-defense. Others have argued that rockets fired by Hamas do not constitute an existential crisis for Israel or its citizens and certainly did not warrant the killing of more than 500 Palestinians, mostly civilians, including women and children.

Despite world concern, Palestinians are in more desperate straits than ever.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Palestinian Children Tortured, Used As Shields By Israel, UN Says

A United Nations human rights body accused Israeli forces on Thursday of mistreating Palestinian children, including by torturing those in custody and using others as human shields.

Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, captured by Israel in the 1967 war, are routinely denied registration of their birth and access to health care, decent schools and clean water, the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child said.

"Palestinian children arrested by (Israeli) military and police are systematically subject to degrading treatment, and often to acts of torture, are interrogated in Hebrew, a language they did not understand, and sign confessions in Hebrew in order to be released," it said in a report.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said it had responded to a report by the U.N. children's agency UNICEF in March on ill-treatment of Palestinian minors and questioned whether the U.N. committee's investigation covered new ground.

Fox’s Kurtz Amends Statement That ‘No Question’ Hamas Kidnapped Israeli Teens

Fox’s Media Buzz host Howard Kurtz definitively laid blame on Hamas Sunday morning for initiating the current hostilities with Israel, stating at the top of his show, “There is no question that Hamas started the latest round of mideast violence, first with the killing of three Israeli teenagers, and then by firing rockets indiscriminately at the Jewish state.”

BuzzFeed’s Dorsey Shaw noticed the line right away, and thought it fishy, as word emerged Friday that the kidnappings were likely the work of a lone cell — “Hamas-affiliated,” in the words of BBC’s Jon Donnison, “but not operating under leadership.”

Kurtz amended his statement later on Twitter: "My point on the three slain Israeli teenagers is that Hamas praised killings as a heroic act."

D.C. seeks stay in order striking down ban on handguns in public

In light of Supreme Court decisions that struck down near total bans on handguns in the District and Chicago in recent years, “there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Judge Scullin wrote in the opinion dated Thursday.

The ruling, five years after the original case was filed, took city officials by surprise and sent police, politicians and attorneys scrambling for a response.

The District’s attorney general’s office was “studying the ruling and considering our options,” spokesman Ted Gest said. In the meantime, city attorneys will seek to block the ruling from taking immediate effect.

The secret report that helps Israelis to hide facts

Israeli spokesmen have their work cut out explaining how they have killed more than 1,000 Palestinians in Gaza, most of them civilians, compared with just three civilians killed in Israel by Hamas rocket and mortar fire. But on television and radio and in newspapers, Israeli government spokesmen such as Mark Regev appear slicker and less aggressive than their predecessors, who were often visibly indifferent to how many Palestinians were killed.

There is a reason for this enhancement of the PR skills of Israeli spokesmen. Going by what they say, the playbook they are using is a professional, well-researched and confidential study on how to influence the media and public opinion in America and Europe. Written by the expert Republican pollster and political strategist Dr Frank Luntz, the study was commissioned five years ago by a group called The Israel Project, with offices in the US and Israel, for use by those "who are on the front lines of fighting the media war for Israel".

A Salt Lake City attorney is arguing in a lawsuit that the FBI has video of the Oklahoma City bombing that shows a second person was involved.

The case is at the heart of Jesse Trentadue's quest to explain his brother's mysterious jail cell death 19 years ago, which has rekindled long-dormant questions about whether others were involved in the deadly 1995 blast.

What some consider a far-flung conspiracy theory is at the forefront of his Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the FBI that goes to trial Monday.

A USPS Worker Called 911, and Then His Bosses Called Him a Terrorist

On July 18 the U.S. Department of Labor sued the USPS, claiming the Postal Service retaliated against Purviance, a maintenance worker with 35 years experience on the job who had the nerve to call 911 after his superior dismissed Purviance’s concerns about what he feared was a carbon monoxide leak on the premises. The Labor Department says the alleged retaliation violated the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which permits employees to contact the authorities when they feel their working conditions are unsafe.

According to the suit, Purviance’s superiors didn’t appreciate his wish to put safety first:

The Fed Is Blowing a Titanic Stock Market Bubble Despite Media Denials

Is the Fed fueling a giant stock market bubble? ... Not only has the S&P 500 fully recovered from the financial crisis, it's a staggering 30% higher than the peaks of the Internet and housing bull markets. But is this really the case? With unemployment still above 6%, how could we find ourselves in the throes of yet another brewing catastrophe? Didn't investors and analysts learn anything from the past decade and a half? While it requires some explanation, the answer is that we're most likely not experiencing another irrational inflation of stock prices. – USA Today

So is that the new plan, Israel?

“You have to understand the culture in which we live,” said Kedar. “The only thing that deters [Hamas leaders] is a threat to the connection between their heads and their shoulders.” When presenter Yossi Hadar asked if that “could filter down” the organization’s ranks, Kedar replied: “No, because lower down the considerations are entirely different. Terrorists like those who kidnapped the children and killed them — the only thing that deters them is if they know that their sister or their mother will be raped in the event that they are caught. What can you do, that’s the culture in which we live.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I note that since the Israeli police have admitted that HAMAS had nothing to do with the kidnapping and killing of those three teenagers in the West Bank last month, that this "professor" has neither acknowledged the fact that Israel wrongfully attacked HAMAS, nor retracted his observation that raping the Palestinian women is the best way to tone down the situation.

Frankly I think an apology by Israel and full restitution for the damage they caused would be more appropriate.

Lieberman calls Gaza devastation a 'good thing'

Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said that the Israeli army will continue its military operations in the Gaza Strip after the end of the ceasefire, and described the images of devastation in Gaza as a "good thing".

Speaking to Yedioth Ahranoth newspaper, the far-right politician said that Israel must ensure the security of Israeli citizens, no matter how many hours and days it takes. "The truce will end at midnight and I have no doubt that the army will continue its operations with full force, and then we'll see results."

When asked about scenes of massive destruction that have been broadcast from the Gaza Strip, he said "our soldiers did a good job." The military, he added, has "full authority" to achieve the goals set by the Israeli cabinet.

Europe finally set to get tough with 'erratic' Putin

With Vladimir Putin's behaviour growing increasingly unpredictable and fighting escalating in the eastern Ukraine, Europe is now poised for a step-change in the level of its economic sanctions against Moscow.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Shame on the Telegraph for such blatant pro-war propaganda!

This situation in Ukraine was started back in January when Ukraine's elected government rejected an offer to join the EU and decided to accept a far better offer from the Russian Republics. One need only look at the economic fate of the current EU members under their privately-owned central bank to see why that was a wise decision. But both the EU and the US saw Ukraine's alignment with Russia as accelerating the rise of the Ruble, which is a threat to both the Euro and the US Dollar in international trade and banking. So covert activists were sent into Kiev to stage protests, riots, sniper attacks, and drive the elected government from power by force, as the US has done more than twenty times since the end of WW2, with Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973 some of the better known examples. Crimea and eastern Ukraine do not want to be part of the European Union, do not want to live their lives as debt-slaves to the ECB, and voted for independence, as they have a right to do under the UN Charter, which grants all people the right to self-determination. But the US and EU don't like the idea of citizens of an overthrown government deciding they want nothing to do with that government they did not elect, and which is taking Ukraine in a direction they do not approve of, and armed the Junta in Kiev with weapons to make war on their own people.

But the plan to conquer the Ukrainian people and bring them back into the EU slave-pen has foundered. Kiev is broke. The Junta's coalition collapsed last week. This attempted overthrow of Ukraine has turned into a disaster and now the EU and US are looking to shift the blame onto Putin, who has done nothing at all during this crisis except accept Crimea's request to join the Russian Republics. The US and EU have dusted off the Iraq playbook and started to try to lie us all into yet another war, and it is worth recalling that the Telegraph worked hand in glove with the government insisting that Saddam had nuclear weapons.

Fool me once...

I am not surprised the Telegraph is not allowing comments on this article.

The Average American Family Is Poorer Than It Was 10 Years Ago

The typical American household was significantly poorer in 2013 than it was ten years earlier as a result of the Great Recession, a new study shows, an effect that is compounded by growing wealth inequality in the United States.

The net worth of the typical American household in 2003 was $87,992, adjusting for inflation. Ten years later, it was just $56,335, a decline of 36 percent, according to a study by the Russell Sage Foundation.

Breaking: 'Freedom Flotilla II' set to sail for Gaza from Turkey with armed escort

Amid Israel's Operation Protective Edge to stop Hamas rocket fire from Gaza, a "Freedom Flotilla" was being organized in Turkey to bring humanitarian aid to the Hamas controlled Palestinian coastal enclave.

The flotilla being organized, called the "Freedom Flotilla II," is the successor of the Mavi Marmara flotilla that sought to break Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip in May 2010.

IHH chairman Bulent Yildrim told local Turkish media last week that the activists will set sail as they had received permission from the authorities in Ankara and that the Turkish Navy will provide protection.

Outrageous coverup of 1995 OKC bombing continues

Jon Rappoport
Activist Post

Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue claims his brother, Kenneth, was killed during interrogation, in federal custody 19 years ago, because Kenneth resembled the “other suspect” in the OKC Bombing case, John Doe #2.

The FBI claims Kenneth, with “41 wounds and bruises (according to AP),” committed suicide.

Attorney Trentadue states there was another man with Tim McVeigh at the scene of the Bombing on April 19, 1995—and it wasn’t his brother.

The FBI claims McVeigh was alone.

To settle this issue, in 2009, as AP reported, the FBI finally gave Trentadue some security tapes from buildings near the Murrah Federal Building. Magically, the tapes were all blank just before and after the Murrah Building was blown up at 9:02AM on 4/15/95...

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

Colin Powell's UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as
laboratories and storage areas for Saddam's massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.

In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Today the US Government has released the usual very blurry low-contrast black and white photos with arrows and labels on them to prove Russia is the bad guy. Any time what they release is out of focus, it is to hide the evidence of fakery and the fact is that these latest photos, like Colin Powell's don't actually show what the labels say they show. In at least one case, the photo being presented as representing the situation today carries an EXIF time stamp from 2 years ago!

So, think back on all the photos and diagrams the US Government produced to well you that whopper that Iraq had nuclear weapons and was ready to attack, because the lie machine is once again warmed up and in overdrive!

Fool me once...

The Statin Controversy Continues…for Good Reason!

by Dr. K.J. McLaughlin

You’ve likely heard about the importance of cholesterol and how you should get your cholesterol levels checked every year as part of your annual check-up. Blood cholesterol has been used as an indicator of health risk now for a number of decades. Ever since the link between LDL cholesterol and coronary artery disease was made, the role of cholesterol in the diet has also been highly publicized.

Remember the egg controversy? The prevailing wisdom was that you shouldn’t eat eggs because they contain cholesterol. The thought was that you should also avoid all foods high in cholesterol or saturated fat, which raises cholesterol levels...

Washington man to be extradited after failure to pay child support on two adults

The Commonwealth of Virginia is attempting to extradite Gregory P. Patnude (52), an Auburn, Washington man over $1836.00 dollars in child support arrears. Patnude, whose children are now 27 and 28 years old has been charged in Virginia with two misdemeanor counts of “Contempt of Court”. Both of his children have college degrees, are self-supporting, and neither lives in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Mr. Patnude has offered to pay the amount due yet the Virginia DSCE and Family Court are insisting on extraditing him to Virginia where he could spend 12 months in jail for the contempt charges which stem from an underlying charge of “Failure to pay support”. The Washington State Division of Child Support is collecting regular payments at $1250 per month from Mr. Patnude’s employer on Virginia’s behalf.

Your chicken is about to get more full of feces

The USDA is moving toward final approval of a rule that would replace most government inspectors with untrained company employees, and to allow companies to slaughter chickens at a much faster rate. (The rule is called the "Modernization of Poultry Slaughter Inspection", but advocates like the Center for Food Safety and Food and Water Watch are calling it the "Filthy Chicken Rule".) It could be approved as soon as this week.

This "modernization" of inspections through privatization is likely to cause more problems than already occur because the company employees will be disinclined to cost their bosses money by slowing down, stopping production or removing chickens when there's a problem. "It's really letting the fox guard the chicken coop", says Tony Corbo of Food and Water Watch.

Israel’s ‘Operation Protective Edge’–Barbaric human sacrifice taking place in Gaza’s real-life Apocalypto

The fact that Gentiles are referred to disparagingly amongst Jews as ‘Goy’ or ‘Goyim’–the Hebrew equivalent of the word ‘livestock’ or ‘cattle’–is one indication that this association between non-Jews and livestock (rams, goats, sheep, etc) used for ritualistic sacrifice has been a fait accompli now for some time. As Israel sinks deeper and deeper into her Judaism and her ‘Jewishness’, and the more powerful that the Jewish community becomes, therefore the more ‘comfortable’ certain political and religious leaders become in voicing ideas that before had to be kept hidden from the Gentile world for the sake of ‘operational security’. Of the various statements made in recent history, few compare in revealing this mindset than that made by Israel’s former Chief Sephardic Rabbi Ovadiah Yusef who stated to wit–

‘Goyim were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world, only to serve the People of Israel…Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat…With gentiles, it will be like any person: They need to die, but God will give them longevity. Why? Imagine that one’s donkey would die, they’d lose their money. This is his servant. That’s why he gets a long life, to work well for this Jew…’

Mass Incarceration: 21 Amazing Facts About America’s Obsession With Prison

Nobody in the world loves locking people behind bars as much as Americans do. We have more people in prison than any other nation on the planet. We also have a higher percentage of our population locked up than anyone else does by a very large margin. But has all of this imprisonment actually made us safer? Well, the last time I checked, crime was still wildly out of control in America and for the most recent year that we have numbers for violent crime was up 15 percent. The number of people that we have locked up has quadrupled since 1980, but this is not solving any of our problems. Clearly, what we are doing is not working.

Pentagon security clearance holders owe $730M in taxes

About 83,000 Defense Department employees and contractors with security clearances to protect the nation's secrets have delinquent federal tax debts totaling $730 million, according to an internal government audit.

The findings in the new Government Accountability Office study raise security concerns for the U.S. government. Officials say employees and contractors who have financial problems are top targets of foreign intelligence agents.

Federal regulations governing security clearances say that a person "who is financially overextended is at risk of having to engage in illegal acts to generate funds" and that indebtedness should be among factors considered when someone applies for a clearance, the GAO study said. But the study found that government agencies in charge of the issue can't readily collect data on tax debt, in part because IRS privacy rules prohibit sharing certain taxpayer data.

Whistleblower wins at Supreme Court, but loses pay.

Edward Lane's Supreme Court victory in a landmark whistleblower case doesn't change the fact he lost his state job and more than half his income while helping convict a state legislator of getting paid for not working.

Lane said other state employees warned him there would be a price to pay for telling the truth about an influential legislator, and for him, that price is more than $50,000 annually. Despite his victory at the Supreme Court, he's still fighting to get his old job back.

"It's the principle of the thing. They know they did me wrong," Lane said in an interview with The Associated Press.

Lane was hired in September 2006 to direct a program based at Central Alabama Community College that helped troubled youths get their lives back in order and obtain a high school equivalency degree.

FBI Agent Who Works on Child Porn Task Force Charged with Choking 13-Year-Old Boy

** Why was this thirteen year-old boy at this agent's house ---at midnight? **

An FBI agent who works with the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force against child porn is charged with choking a 13 year-old boy unconscious.

Special agent Scott Armstrong, 37, plead not guilty to misdemeanor third-degree assault charges during an arraignment in June and will appear in court on July 29.

According to the Callaway County police department, the incident occurred at Armstrong's residence at around midnight on March 1. In a probable cause statement, the 13-year-old claims Armstrong strangled him with a choke-hold until "temporarily losing consciousness."

The boy's parents later took photos of their son's neck, which had signs of being choked, including redness and fabric patterns.

In the probable cause statement, Armstrong admitted to "placing his arm around" the boy's neck until the teen passed out.

Fracking to be allowed in UK national parks in ‘exceptional circumstances’

The UK government will allow fracking in national parks and heritage sites in “exceptional circumstances,” say new guidelines. Around half of the UK is now open to shale gas exploitation, despite growing public concern over the environmental impact.

Under the banner “all out for shale,” the UK government is opening up vast swathes of the British countryside to companies, who will extract fossil fuels from deep under the ground through the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing. Bidding opened in Britain on Monday for companies looking to exploit shale gas resources.
