Democracy is Dead - Pretend no more!

Our journey to Corporatocracy!

The word "democracy" is kicked around like a discarded rag doll these days. So faded and worn, the concept has gradually twisted into an almost unrecognisable parody without shape or form. Basically, the term has become a "catch-all" phrase indicating--not the other forms of governance, while avoiding what itself has become.

To understand what "democracy" has become we need to look at what "democracy" was supposed to be.

Democracy; government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

Hungary wants to tax internet data transfers

Late on Tuesday, the Hungarian government proposed a controversial way of dealing with a national budget deficit: taxing internet service providers for data transfers sent over the web. Under the new tax provisions, providers would pay 150 forints — the equivalent of about 62 cents — for every gigabyte of information transferred, a cost that could quickly add up.

Apple Pay Glitch Causes Bank of America Customers to Be Charged Twice for Purchases

With Apple Pay positioned as a brand new service that requires banks, credit card companies, and vendors to all work together, it seems that some glitches in the system are inevitable.

Some Bank of America customers have been running into a serious problem when using Apple Pay to make purchases, with two charges showing up on their credit card statements. A CNN report from this morning first suggested that multiple Bank of America customers had been double charged, which Bloomberg later confirmed. Hundreds of customers are said to be affected.

Watch That Windows Update: FTDI Drivers Are Killing Fake Chips

The FTDI FT232 chip is found in thousands of electronic baubles, from Arduinos to test equipment, and more than a few bits of consumer electronics. It’s a simple chip, converting USB to a serial port, but very useful and probably one of the most cloned pieces of silicon on Earth. Thanks to a recent Windows update, all those fake FTDI chips are at risk of being bricked. This isn’t a case where fake FTDI chips won’t work if plugged into a machine running the newest FTDI driver; the latest driver bricks the fake chips, rendering them inoperable with any computer.

Ferguson shooting autopsy report released as panicking Dems race-bait

As the Georgia Democrats attempt to use the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to get angry black voters to the polls in what many are calling a "disgusting example of race-baiting for political gain," the release of the 18-year old Brown's autopsy appears to support Police Officer Darren Wilson's claims: that a physical scuffle occurred inside Wilson's car as he struggled with the 6'8" tall, 300-pounder for Wilson's service weapon.

Michael Brown's official autopsy reveals that the teenager received a gunshot to his hand at close range during his altercation with the Ferguson police officer who ended up killing him, experts said in the autopsy report. The medical examiner's autopsy and toxicology reports also indicates that Brown had, as was suspected, ingested marijuana.

Canadian police are investigating Michael Zehaf-Bibeau after two U.S. officials said that U.S. agencies have been advised that the shooter was a Canadian convert to Islam. One of the officials said that the man was from Quebec.

The gunman was reportedly dressed in all black and had a scarf over his face.

Forex-Rigging Fines Could Hit $41 Billion Globally: Citi

Probes into allegations that traders rigged foreign-exchange benchmarks could cost banks as much as $41 billion to settle,Citigroup Inc. (C) analysts said.

Deutsche Bank AG (DBK) is seen as probably the “most impacted” with a fine of as much as 5.1 billion euros ($6.5 billion), Citigroup analysts led by Kinner Lakhani said yesterday, estimating the Frankfurt-based bank’s settlements could reach 10 percent of its tangible book value, or its assets’ worth.

Canadian jihadi says Israeli Jews welcome in ISIS

A Canadian jihadist currently fighting alongside Islamic State (IS) in Syria said that he thinks Israeli-born Jews would be accepted to join the radical group provided they convert to Islam.

The jihadist, who goes by the surname Abu Khalid Al-Kanadi ("Abu Khalid the Canadian") made the comment earlier this week via the social media website ask.fm.

Al-Kanadi, who converted in 2010, responded to several other questions on the site and noted that he was born into a Canadian family but that it was easy for him to leave to go to Syria.

"They reacted mainly with confusion, not understanding why someone would leave Canada to go to a land of war," he wrote.

When asked on the website whether he would be willing to speak to a journalist, Al-Kanadi said that "journalists are responsible for the spreading of lies against the Islamic State. Is this journalist seeking to spread the message of the media outlets of the Jews, Christians, Apostates, and Hypocrites?"

Marjorie Cohn | US Government Sanitizes Vietnam War History

For many years after the Vietnam War, we enjoyed the "Vietnam syndrome," in which US presidents hesitated to launch substantial military attacks on other countries. They feared intense opposition akin to the powerful movement that helped bring an end to the war in Vietnam. But in 1991, at the end of the Gulf War, George H.W. Bush declared, "By God, we've kicked the Vietnam syndrome once and for all!"

American refugee in Russia (not Snowden) persecuted by US gestapo

The banksters and the American gestapo they own can’t touch Snowden – for now. He’s too famous. And besides, he’s only speaking out against the police state, not the 9/11 false flag operation that launched it.

But Robles, a less-well-known 9/11-truth-seeking journalist, enjoys no such protection. It appears that US/bankster agents in Russia have launched a campaign to punish Robles for daring to draw attention to the 9/11 coup d’état, Craft International’s Boston Marathon false-flag bombing, Operation Gladio, and similar third-rail stories. The police state’s only vulnerability is 9/11 truth – the achilles heel of the neocon regime that rules America. So Snowden is tolerated, while Robles is being hammered into the ground by US agents in the Russian media. (Those agents serve the same Zionist interests as the dual-citizen oligarchs who have so much power in Russia; both groups represent the NWO and both are terrified of 9/11 truth.)

US-Backed Ukraine Army Used Cluster Bombs Against Its Own People: Reports

The Ukraine Army, backed by both the U.S. and NATO throughout its military campaign against rebel factions in eastern regions of the country over recent months, appears to have fired cluster munitions on the city of Donetsk earlier this month, according to a Human Rights Watch investigation and independent reporting by the New York Times.

Citing the HRW report, physical evidence and its own interviews with both witnesses and victims, the Times reports:

Sites where rockets fell in the city on Oct. 2 and Oct. 5 showed clear signs that cluster munitions had been fired from the direction of army-held territory, where misfired artillery rockets still containing cluster bomblets were found by villagers in farm fields.

The two attacks wounded at least six people and killed a Swiss employee of the International Red Cross based in Donetsk.

Santelli & Schiff: “A Messy Exit Is A Given… Ending QE Will Plunge US Into Severe Recession”

“Markets are slowly coming to grips with reality is not going to be as easy as everybody thought,” Peter Schiff tells CNBC’s Rick Santelli, noting the pick up in volatility across asset classes recently. What The Fed clearly does not understand, Schiff blasts, is that “you cannot end quantitative easing without plunging the US into a severe recession.” Because of the Fed’s extreme monetary policy and the mal-investment that flows from it, Schiff says, “The US economy is more screwed up now than it’s ever been in history.” Most prophetically, we suspect, Santelli agrees that “a messy exit is a given,” and Schiff believes they know that and that is why QE4 is coming simply “because it hasn’t worked and they can’t admit it’s been a dismal failure.”

Iraqi Doctors Call Depleted Uranium Use “Genocide”

Contamination from depleted uranium (DU) munitions is causing sharp rises in congenital birth defects, cancer cases and other illnesses throughout much of Iraq, according to numerous Iraqi doctors.

“The world should know that Iraqi people were the victims of the aggression inflicted by the use of DU munitions by the American and British troops during these wars, and this is genocide,” Dr. Jawad al-Ali, a consultant physician and oncologist, told Truthout.

Al-Ali, an expert oncologist at the Basra Cancer Treatment Center, member of the Iraqi Cancer Board and a member of the Basra Cancer Research Group, estimates that there are 300 sites throughout Iraq that are contaminated with radiation from the DU munitions.

He attributes the extreme rates of birth defects in Fallujah to the US use of DU there during its two sieges of the city in 2004.

Dr. Al-Ali is completely correct to call out the use of DU weapons for what it was in Iraq: genocide.

Census Report: Half of Americans Poor or Near Poor

Forty-seven percent of Americans have incomes under twice the official poverty rate, making half of the country either poor or near-poor, according to figures released last week by the Census Bureau.

These figures are based on the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM), which takes into account government transfers and the regional cost-of-living in calculating the poverty rate. According to that calculation, there were 48.7 million people in poverty in the United States, three million higher than the official census figures released last month. The US poverty rate, according to the SPM, was 15.5 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are morally, and socially, unacceptable.

Both parties talk a good game about getting the decent jobs back, which used to be the underpinning of a solid middle class.

But the destruction of the Middle Class, by the consistent offshoring/outsourcing of jobs, is no accident.

White House Chief Of Staff Negotiating Redaction Of CIA Torture Report

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough is personally negotiating how much of the Senate's so-called torture report, a probe into the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation program, will be redacted, according to sources involved in the negotiations.

McDonough's leading role in the redaction discussion has raised eyebrows in the Senate, given that his position comes with a broad array of urgent responsibilities and that the Obama White House has a team of qualified national security advisers.

Despite the White House’s public reluctance to get involved in the widely aired spat between the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee over the report, McDonough’s role suggests that the Oval Office sees the feud as a high-stakes one.

The White House confirmed McDonough’s involvement in the negotiations, but would not discuss the extent of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this report on torture will simply go away, which is completely inappropriate.

US taxpayers should be able to, and in fact mandated, to read the entire report, to see how their taxpayer dollars were used in the application of torture to prisoners of war.

And I can assure you of one thing: waterboarding was not the most vicious procedure applied to those who were enduring torture, under the US government's watch.

Obama’s counterrevolution against the Founding Fathers

As President Obama has said, we have no greater responsibility as a government.”

Republican Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, told a meeting in the House of Commons in London on Tuesday evening that Snowden was a "traitor" who was now living in the "loving arms" of Russian spies.

"The [US] government has pressed charges on Mr Snowden," he said. "We are treating him, as I would argue, the traitor that he is." Rogers added: "And by the way, and this is important, I would charge him for murder."

Rogers also warned the gathering of British MPs and interested foreign policy professionals that British policy of restricting its strikes against Isis to Iraq was giving the Islamic militant group a "safe haven" in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Congressman Rogers: you, and your British counterparts were thoroughly humiliated when Snowden did what he did.

And what Snowden did was to speak the truth; something to which you, and your colleagues in the security industrial complex, appear to be pathologically...allergic.

The further revelations of NSAgate, IRSgate, APgate, Americans understand that their lives are now under total surveillance, and every narrative which begins to suggest that we are not, needs to be put to absolute, scientific, and relentless scrutiny by We the People.

And I have to wonder, sir; by whom are you surveilled, that you would even begin to claim that Snowden is guilty of murder, when you cannot offer one shred of evidentiary proof that this is the case?!?

And in how many defense industry companies are you invested, that you would really like to see a return of the "cold war" between the US and Russia, looking at your Russia-bashing rhetoric here?!?

There should be a Constitutional Amendment, stating very clearly that every (alleged) Congressional representative must, upon winning office, put their finances in a blind trust, as must the US President.

Winning a seat as a national legislator should not be equivalent to winning the lottery, but unfortunately, that is the case right now.

How Putin Became a Central Figure in the First Ever Vote to Ban Fracking in Texas

On September 8, a Texas state regulatory agency sent a letter to United States Secretary of State John Kerry, suggesting that U.S. anti-fracking activists are receiving funding from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“It is reasonable to assume,” Texas Railroad Commissioner David Porter wrote, “that their intention is to increase their market share of natural gas production and distribution as Russia is the second largest producer of natural gas in the world.”

Jury convicts four former Blackwater guards for gunning down unarmed Iraqis

A federal jury on Wednesday found four former Blackwater guards guilty of killing unarmed Iraqis at a Baghdad traffic circle, more than seven years after the shooting incident that outraged Iraqis and inflamed anti-American sentiment around the world.

The Washington jury found three of the ex-guards with the private security company, Paul Slough, Dustin Heard and Evan Liberty, guilty of voluntary manslaughter. It found a fourth guard, Nicholas Slatten, guilty of murder in connection with the first death at the circle.

In all, the jury found the four former guards guilty on nearly every count related to the incident.

Now, how about charging and convicting that uber-unholy trinity of Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld for lying this country into the war against Iraq?!?

Nine wounded in suspected Jerusalem terror attack

Several people were wounded on Wednesday evening in a suspected terror attack near the light rail train station near Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem. According to eyewitnesses, a car drove up to the station and ran over passersby disembarking from the train.

Nine people were wounded in the attack, including the suspected terrorist. A baby in critical condition, a woman in seriously condition, two people moderately and four more lightly.

The car drove 14 meters on the tracks itself, hitting disembarking passengers and continuing on along the length of the track. The driver hit a pole a few hundred meters down and attempted to flee on foot, when he was shot.The driver was arrested soon after the attack and hospitalized with moderate to serious wounds.

I also have substantial reason to believe that the odds are good that the goods are odd when it comes down to their IOLTA accounts as noted in prior videos.

I am now going to receive copies of canceled checks from the Summit County Clerk of Courts regarding the close out foreclosure files. From what I understand Reimer's clients are now demanding strict accounting because of ethical concerns.

10 Things About The U.S. News Media That They Do Not Want You To Know

Do you trust the news media? Do you believe that the information that they are giving you is true and accurate? If you answered yes to either of those questions, that places you in a steadily shrinking minority. Yes, on average Americans watch approximately 153 hours of television a month, but for their news they are increasingly turning to alternative sources of information such as this website. Big news channels such as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are losing hordes of viewers, and they are desperately searching for answers. Things have gotten so bad at CNN that they have been forced to lay off hundreds of workers. The mainstream media is slowly dying, but they will never admit it. They are still convinced that they can find some way to turn this around and regain the trust of the American people. But it simply is not going to happen. The following are 10 things about the U.S. news media that they do not want you to know...

Proto-Nazism on Exhibition

Israel’s policies and actions toward the Palestinians has been a principal incitement of international terrorism. To say that, does not excuse the latter, but does help to explain it. Had Israel chosen a different path from its founding (Arno Mayer’s Ploughshares into Swords records in detail the events of 1945-48 demonstrating the Zionist paradigm of ethnic cleansing of the indigenous Arab population, with few dissenting voices, such as Martin Buber and Judah Magnes), one can speculate that the historical outcome would have been a different spirit and structure of the Middle East, far more promoting of Jewish security certainly than in the present.

Ancient Roman Nanotechnology Inspires Next-Generation Holograms for Information Storage

The Lycurgus Cup, as it is known due to its depiction of a scene involving King Lycurgus of Thrace, is a 1,600-year-old jade green Roman chalice that changes colour depending on the direction of the light upon it. It baffled scientists ever since the glass chalice was acquired by the British Museum in the 1950s, as they could not work out why the cup appeared jade green when lit from the front but blood red when lit from behind.

Only in the last 20 years have scientists begun to understand the phenomenon observed in the Lycurgus Cup, but until now, they have not been able to utilise its effects in currently-available technology.

To apply this phenomenon in modern optics, an interdisciplinary team of researchers have created nanoscale metallic nanoparticle arrays that mimic the colour effects of the Lycurgus cup, to form multi-colour holograms. This breakthrough could lead to the shrinkage of standard bulky optical devices.

Output last year was 10 per cent higher than in 1978, a new study by the Office for National Statistics said.

However, the proportion of people working in manufacturing has fallen sharply, down from 25 per cent 35 years ago to just 8 per cent now.

Fake news sites are using Facebook to spread Ebola panic

These sites claim to be satirical but lack even incompetent attempts at anything resembling humor. They’re really fake news sites, posting scary stories and capitalizing on the decontextualization of Facebook’s news feed to trick people into sharing them widely. On Facebook, where stories look pretty much the same no matter what publication they’re coming from, and where news feeds are already full of panicked school closures, infected ISIS bogeymen, and DIY hazmat suits, the stories can fool inattentive readers into thinking they’re real. Panicked, they share, spreading the rumor farther and sending more readers to the story, generating ad revenue for the site.

It’s proving to be a very successful strategy, particularly for a site called the National Report, which saw its traffic spike to 2 million unique visitors yesterday according to Quantcast.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) said Tuesday that he wants to "find a way" to provide health insurance to the state's 70,000 uninsured, even though he vetoed legislation in April that would have done just that -- and at no cost to the state.

During a gubernatorial debate, LePage said he vetoed the Medicaid expansion billbecause it would have covered people with incomes at 400 percent of the federal poverty level. The bill would have accepted millions of dollars in federal funds for the state's MaineCare program under the Affordable Care Act, which LePage has criticized. The federal government would have paid for the entire cost of the Medicaid expansion until 2017, at which point it would lower its coverage to 90 percent.

Iraqi Kurds to vote on sending forces to Syria

Israeli minister airs Iran nuclear concerns at Pentagon

Israeli Defence Minister Moshe Yaalon said on Tuesday he shared with his US counterpart his country’s concerns about the direction of talks between world powers and Iran on its nuclear programme.

In an audio message released by Yaalon’s office after his meeting with Chuck Hagel at the Pentagon, Yaalon said they also talked about the conflicts in Iraq and Syria and the US-Israel defence partnership.

“The Iranian issue indeed worries us,” he said in Hebrew. “The question of if there will be an agreement and what kind of agreement worries us. I’m talking about that here and behind closed doors we express our concerns.”

Expert-level talks between Iran and world powers are to be held in Vienna on Wednesday and Thursday, according to an Iranian official.

Iran and the P5+1 group of nations — Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany — are seeking a comprehensive agreement over Tehran’s nuclear programme by a November 24 deadline.

Is It Haskalah Or Culture Of Deceit?

The new play by Bernard-Henri Levy, "Hotel Europe," that opened in Paris in September, was scheduled to run until January but will close in November due to a lack of people willing to play audience. BHL induced Sarkozy, Hollande and Valls to promote his play but apparently that didn’t help its reception.

A Swiss comedian, Matthieu Béguelin, commented on Hotel Europe’s aborted run by saying: "La pièce de BHL fait un four." In theatrical vocabulary, the expression means that BHL’s play was a flop. As you probably know, the French word "four" means "oven" and the media were quick to react with commentary that BHL is Jewish and ‘oven’ can evoke the Nazi crematoriums. The comedian replied amongst other things that he was amused that nobody who talked about the walloping of BHL had dared to use the same common expression.

Turkey refuses to reveal name of suspect in death of Press TV reporter

[ Editors Note: Turkey is not releasing the name of the truck driver, or it seems anything else, a strong indication it is not too concerned about bad international PR on the incident. It was strange to hear about her parents seeking legal action, and because she is not an Iranian, as a country it cannot take the lead.

But PressTV will need to do more than write stories about it or it will leave the impression that their contract reporters can only expect moral support if they get whacked for writing good stories. She was reporting what all the other mass media people had to have been seeing, but chose not to report it.

If Turkey did kill her, it was sending a message to all the other journalists to keep their mouths shut. Hell, they were able to have Biden eat crow when we all know what he said was true, even if it gave the US a free pass on its on terrorism involvement...Jim W. Dean ]

Russian bases to span entire Arctic border by end of 2014

Russia will have military control of the entirety of its 6,200 km Arctic coastal zone by the end of 2014, just a year after Moscow announced its ambitious plan to build military presence in the region, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has announced.

“We have set quite a pace in our foray into the Arctic,” Shoigu said during a military council meeting in Moscow. “By the end of the year we will already deploy most of our units in the region – from Murmansk to Chukotka.”

Moscow announced its intentions to create a special force grouping in the strategic region in December last year, with Vladimir Putin saying that Russia needs to activate “all the levers for the protection of its security and national interests” in the “promising region.”

The undertaking, which Shoigu labeled “fundamental,” is now in full flow.

ICD 9: International Medical and "Legal" Execution Coding Brought Under Obamacare

According to reports, more than 68,105 new medical codes are being added due to the Obamacare monstrosity. Doctors all across the nation have been complaining due to the overwhelming burden it places upon them. Just the time consumption alone, making sure these codes are accurate, will inevitably take time away from the doctor/patient relationship creating a barrier of paperwork while destroying the personal experience with your doctor. While these doctors are correct to state it will be even more of a burden, they are not correct to state this has come out of Obamacare itself. Let me explain.

These codes were not created by Obamacare, however Obamacare is trying to implement every American citizen under international codes to link us to the “international” system. These codes were actually created by the WHO (World Health Organization) . The WHO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.

Bayer and Death: 1918 and Aspirin

In looking at reports of those who died, two distinct groups became readily apparent to Starko, based on a very distinctive time frame from health to death:

1. People who died of pneumonia from a bacteria infection became sick and things deteriorated at varying rates from there to death; and

2. People who died so astoundingly fast that those deaths became a classic part of the frightening legend of the 1918 “flu” – people perfectly well in the morning and dead within a matter of hours.

In both groups, aspirin is now the likely causative agent.

Lancet Ebola Resource Centre

From the comments section: It is a known fact that viral RNA polymerase and replicase enzymes can jump around and scavenge genetic material. If the viral activity in a host population is large and active enough, there is a good chance that viral exchanges with other microbes can take place. If for example, the Ebola filovirus donates genetic material to a normally benign virus in a human or animal, (or the reverse) there could develop a new strain of virus never seen by nature.

This could result in nothing more than a harmless species or could cause catastrophic etiology.

If the health scientific community thinks the Ebola crisis can be contained and eliminated until better protocols are in place, they are thinking in fiction.

Viruses and other pathogens are integrated into the evolutionary patterns of life. Humans have tinkered in this process for sometime, and now there is a turning point in the biologic ecology.

Neves is to play the role of obedient tool in the hands of US administration.

(JTA) — When Rabbi Barry Freundel asked Bethany Mandel to take a “really long shower” before a “practice dunk” in the mikvah prior to her formal conversion to Judaism, the whole request seemed a bit odd, she says.

But Mandel eventually bought the rabbi’s explanation: that women performing the ritual for the first time at their actual conversions might in their nervousness and confusion turn around and mistakenly expose themselves to the three rabbis present. Mandel said she, like other women who took practice dunks, actually found the trial run helpful.

Beware the Corporate Takeover of Seed under Many Guises

Monopolisation of seed is not just a European issue but a global one, with international agritech giants buying out independent companies and leaving farmers with little choice but to purchase hybrid or genetically modified seeds in countries like the US. Monsanto bought 200 US independent seed companies over 10 years, with the corporation now estimated to own 23 % of the proprietary seed market (see [3] GM Crops Destroyed by Drought in US while non-GM varieties Flourish, SiS 56). A similar drive for seed monopoly is taking place in the African continent, with SeedCo, one of Africa’s largest home-grown seed companies being bought out by transnational corporations Limagrain, the biggest seed and plant breeding company in the EU. Limagrain is investing US$60 million for a 28 % stake in SeedCo [4]. SeedCo has sold 49 % of its shares in Africa’s only cottonseed company Quton to the Indian company Mayco, a Monsanto subsidiary. Syngenta in 2013 took over Zambia’s MRI seed, which is said to have the most biodiverse collection of maize seed varieties in Africa. South Africa’s largest seed company Pannar Seed was recently taken over by Pioneer Hi-Bred, a subsidiary of DuPont. These acquisitions of seed companies by a handful of corporate giants poses great threats not only to seed biodiversity, but also food sovereignty and people’s access to fresh foods, giving GM companies the chance to spread their patented seeds across the world.

Monsanto, Syngenta and DuPont already own 53% of the global commercial seed market and the following legislative proposals and treaties are set to increase their monopoly [5].

Fear of Ebola Now Creating Weakness in U.S. Stocks?

The fear of Ebola has caused pressure towards the U.S. stock markets, particularly in the travel sector and aviation stocks. The concern is real, and if it is allowed to grow in the United States, Asia, or Europe, we could see a significant decline in travel demand that could impact the next few quarters, as my stock analysis would suggest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stock market is already in trouble. Indeed it is on life support right now via QE. Ebola just makes a handy scapegoat when it crashes.

How Rudy Giuliani Got 'Klinghoffer' Right

Too many others who angrily attempted to drown out the music emanating from the Metropolitan Opera House on Monday night’s opening performance showed us just the opposite. Their language and tactics were offensive, embarrassing and, I hope, ultimately self-defeating.

Junot Díaz comes out in support of the academic and cultural boycott of Israel

One month ago Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz made headlines when he called on the Brooklyn Book Festival to reject sponsorship from Israel’s Office of Cultural Affairs. Two weeks later he expanded on this during a lecture at Clark University where he commented on the pressure scholars feel who speak out for Palestine, and shared how his personal history brings him to supper the Palestinian people. Now Díaz has come out in support of the academic and cultural boycott of Israel.

The U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel sent out the following press release today saying that Díaz joins Chuck D and Boots Riley as prominent artists who have recently endorsed the boycott:

L.A. Hotel to Host Anti-Israel Confab

A prominent Los Angeles hotel that has come under fire for hosting a conference organized by what critics call an anti-Israel hate group is standing by its controversial decision to permit the organization on its premises.

The L.A. Westin Bonaventure will host in November a conference organized by the American Studies Association (ASA), a controversial nationwide academic group that is known as one of the largest champions of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS), which seeks to isolate Israel and its citizens.

The Westin Bonaventure, as well as its parent group, Interstate Hotels & Resorts, has faced intense criticism from the pro-Israel community and Jewish groups for agreeing to host the ASA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BDS is protected speech under the First Amendment, and everyone supporting Israel is a traitor to the Constitution.

Emmanuel Eisenberg explains his right to disregard international law and destroy private property

The Israeli Antiquity Authority (IAA) continues to expropriate Palestinian land in Hebron, on the Tel Rumeida hillside. On Sunday 18 May 2014, the IAA workforce, under the instruction of project coordinator Emmanuel Eisenberg, continued to cause structural damaged to the Abu Haikel land, deploying questionable and illegal archeological practices, while at the same time utilizing the Al Jobeh family’s land without the family’s consent.

The excavations are illegal under Israeli law, according to the Oslo Agreement, which Israel signed in the mid-90s— a process jointly agreed upon by Israel and Palestine as a vehicle to peace and stability. Article 2 of the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement describes in detail how Israeli and Palestinians would jointly administer archeological projects in Palestinian territory. The IAA has not abided by this agreement in Tel Rumeida.

Dueling Narratives Emerge On Palestinian Internment Camps

The descriptions included in the research paper, which was published in the summer volume of the Journal of Palestine Studies, are chilling: arbitrary arrests of civilians who were jailed in prisons described as “concentration camps” and subjected to torture, hardship, food deprivation and forced labor. The references made in the study to Nazi camps are not coincidental.

Anti-gay Christian group threatens to sue hotel for hosting scholars who endorse Israel boycott

The American Center for Law and Justice, a Christian, right-wing legal organization, has written to a Los Angeles hotel warning it against hosting the American Studies Association’s annual meeting next month.

The letter, addressed to the general manager of the Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites, argues that by passing a resolution in support of the boycott of Israeli academic institutions, the American Studies Association (ASA) will practice “unlawful discrimination” over who is permitted to attend the meeting, scheduled to take place 4-9 November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is no connection between supporting BDS and any kind of limits on who can attend the meeting. This will never get to court, but is a desperate attempt by Israel's butt-boys to try to generate negative PR against BDS.

Obama admin withholding 2,100 US military torture photos

The Obama administration has blocked the public release of disturbing torture photos out of concern they would endanger US troops. Now, a federal judge is giving the government until December to justify its actions.

The US government has been blocking the release of US military torture photos from Iraq and Afghanistan out of concern they could endanger US troops. Now, a federal judge is giving the government until December to justify its actions.

In addition to the disturbing Abu Ghraib photos released in 2004, an estimated 2,100 images of US military personnel torturing and degrading detainees – possibly even more disturbing – may soon be released into the public realm.

Shots fired near Canada parliament

Multiple shots have been fired at the National War Memorial in Ottawa, just steps from the nation's parliament.

Witnesses reported seeing a man running toward the government buildings, which have been placed on lockdown.

A soldier has been wounded in the attack, Canadian media report.

The incident comes amid the nation's raising of its terror threat level from low to medium, after a Muslim convert was killed by Quebec police after hitting two soldiers with his car.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is reporting that shots have been fired inside the Canadian Parliament building. False-flag in play?

Schools should check kids brush teeth, says NICE

After local authorities identify areas that would benefit, free toothbrushes and fluoride toothpaste should be handed out to parents and carers for use at school and at home, it advises.

If a supervised tooth-brushing scheme is not feasible, children's teeth should be painted with fluoride varnish at least twice a year to strengthen teeth, NICE added.

Does topical fluoride really protect tooth enamel? Study suggests NO

A popular mantra in American dentistry claims that topical fluoride treatments help to protect teeth from cavities by forming a protective shield on the enamel of teeth. However, a new study published in the American Chemical Society (ACS) journal Langmuir has found that the "protective layer" created by fluoride is actually 100 times thinner than previously believed, which may render it practically useless as a cavity-preventing intervention.

Frank Muller, PhD, and his colleagues from Saarland University in Germany discovered that the fluorapatite layer formed by fluoride on teeth is only six nanometers thick. To put this into perspective, the width of an average human hair is roughly 10,000 layers thick. So everyday activities like chewing food, say scientists, are enough to disintegrate this thin fluoride layer in a matter of seconds.

1 dead after NC grandfather fires back at trio in attempted rape of teen granddaughter, sheriff says

A grandfather shot back and is believed to have killed a suspect in a home-invasion and attempted rape of his teen granddaughter on Monday night, Robeson County Sheriff's officials said.

The grandfather was also shot – but he also managed to shoot the 2 other suspects in the home-invasion and attempted rape, said Maj. Anthony Thompson with the Robeson County Sheriff's Office.

The incident started around 10 pm at a house on Yedda Road in Lumberton on Monday night when someone knocked on the home of the grandfather, his wife and their 19-year-old granddaughter, according to the sheriff's office.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I guess the three crooks thought they could get away with this because the police are busy writing tickets, harassing protesters, shooting dogs, and raiding Ocra gardens!

Fearing a Future Emergency, Governors Declare a State of Emergency

Eric Blair
Activist Post

When most of us think of a State of Emergency, we think of isolated natural disasters like hurricanes, winter storms or a flood that passes through. In those cases it's quite obvious when the emergency is over. But what if an emergency is declared for something that hasn't happened yet? How will we know when it's over?

Both Pennsylvania and Connecticut governors recently declared a State of Emergency, not because a disaster is taking place at this moment, but because bad things may happen in the future. This is an incredible development that citizens should be concerned about...

NOAA employee charged with stealing U.S. dam information

(Reuters) - A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) employee in Ohio has been charged with stealing sensitive information from a federal database for the nation's dams and lying about the breach to federal agents, prosecutors said.

Xiafen "Sherry" Chen, 59, was arrested on Monday at the NOAA office in Wilmington, Ohio, about 50 miles northeast of Cincinnati, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of Ohio said in a statement on Monday.

Chen was charged with theft, illegally accessing a federal database and two counts of making false statements to investigators. She could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the theft charge and five years each if convicted on the other charges, prosecutors said.

Preventing Taxpaying Milk Cows from Seeking Greener Pastures

First, Americans are the only people in the entire world who effectively suffer under an inescapable, worldwide system of taxation.

For example, if an American and an Italian both moved to Singapore (or any foreign country) and earned income there, the American would still have to file and pay US income taxes. The Italian would have no tax liability to Italy. That’s how it works for citizens of virtually all countries… except American citizens.

Documents Show US Siding With Israel in Death of Its Own Citizen

Instead of providing this training, the US should have been seeking accountability for the attack in which a US teenager was shot in the face at point blank range after he already lay wounded. But when it came to the only independent international inquiry into the attack, the UN Human Rights Council's Fact-Finding Mission, not only did the United States vote against the resolution to investigate, but the country tried to derail it. One cable noted that the US Mission in Geneva, where the council is located, had "explored ways to 'turn off ' the flotilla fact finding mission" and that "we very strongly favor having this fact finding mission (FFM) fall away."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There you have it. The official policy of the US Government is that Israel can murder any Americans they want to!
