WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"From 1928 to 1932, the German National Socialist (Nazi) Party's share of the vote skyrocketed from 2.6 percent to 37.3 percent. While many commentators have attributed the Nazis' success to its appeal to the lower middle class ... the facts unequivocally reveal that it was the upper middle class that most strongly voted for Hitler... The Nazis were seen as patriotic, anti-communist, and religious. The people who voted Nazi were not so much people who had fallen economically, but people who feared falling and wanted to stay on top." -- from the book Rollback by Thomas Bodenheimer and Robert Gould

The threat of sanctions worked against Israel in 1956 — and it can work again

In 1957, President Eisenhower addressed the US public:

“Should a nation which attacks and occupies foreign territory in the face of United Nations disapproval be allowed to impose conditions on its own withdrawal? If we agreed that armed attack can properly achieve the purposes of the assailant, then I fear we will have turned back the clock of international order.

If the United Nations once admits that international disputes can be settled by using force, then we will have destroyed the very foundation of the organization and our best hope of establishing world order. The United Nations must not fall. I believe that in the interests of peace the United Nations has no choice but to exert pressure upon Israel to comply with the withdrawal resolutions.” [1]

Israel Created Hamas to Avoid Peace

Israel does not want peace. Israel created Hamas

Five Latin American countries withdraw envoys from Israel

The decision of the Latin American countries to recall their ambassadors in Tel Aviv is a "deep disappointment", says Israel.

El Salvador on Wednesday became the fifth Latin American country to withdraw its ambassador from Israel in protest at Israel's military offensive in Gaza.

Brazil, Chile, Ecuador and Peru have already recalled their ambassadors.

Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor said that the move encourages Hamas; "this decision encourages Hamas which has been recognized as a terrorist organization by several countries. The countries standing against terror must act responsibly and should not reward them. While Hamas has been responsible for hindering a ceasfire, El Salvador, Peru and Chile were expected to support international attitude for peace and demilitarization of Gaza", the statement said.

Earlier Israel criticized Brazil over its decision to recall its ambassador in protest at Israel's military offensive in Gaza.

Israeli General Insists Strike on Gaza Power Plant an Accident

Israeli Air Force General Yaron Rosen today denied that yesterday’s attack on the Gaza Strip’s only power plant was intentional, saying the nation had no interest in striking the enclave’s only source of electricity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"No, really, it looked just like an Egyptian horse ranch to us when we attacked!!!" -- Nodding Yahoo*

*On June 8, 1967, Israel attacked and tried to sink the USS Liberty, an intelligence gathering ship, killing 34 US sailors. While the attack was underway Israel kept telling the US that Egypt had attacked the ship, to trigger a US attack on Cairo. The attack was on the way to Cairo when the crew of the USS Liberty finally got past the Israeli jamming and got a message out identifying their true attackers. The strike against Cairo was recalled and the official story is that Israel mistook the USS Liberty for an Egyptian horse carrier ship, because as we all know, Egyptian horse carrier ships have huge dish antennas all over them!

Anonymous 'knocks out' Mossad website over Israel’s Gaza offensive

Hacker group Anonymous has reportedly taken down the website of the Israeli secret service Mossad in protest of Israel’s military incursion in Gaza. The ‘hacktivists’ have already targeted a number of organizations in their mission to stop the “genocide.”

Mossad’s website went offline at around 00:40 GMT and is still down at the time of writing. The Israeli government has yet to make any comment on the supposed hack attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After so many hack attacks on my servers from Israel's supporters, it's nice to see them getting a taste of their own medicine!

FLASHBACK - JFK Vs The Federal Reserve

It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America.

"United States Notes" were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a "Federal Reserve Note" issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a "United States Note" from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy's Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says "Federal Reserve Note" on the top while the other says "United States Note". Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number.

France evacuates French and British expats from Libya

The French government says it has evacuated French and British nationals from Libya, as battles rage between government forces and militias.

A French diplomatic source said 40 French nationals, including the ambassador, had been evacuated by ship along with seven British nationals.

France's embassy in Tripoli has been closed temporarily, the French foreign ministry said on its website.

Libya has been gripped by instability since the 2011 uprising.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There was no uprising in 2011. There was a US-sponsored overthrow of the government of Gaddafi, to end the threat of the Gold Dinar and force Libya to sell their oil only for US dollars. The Libyan people have decided to take their nation back from its US puppet ruler just as the people of Iraq are doing, and Iran did in 1979.

A deeply troubling response to Hamas

This newspaper has long admired Israel and its beleaguered and resourceful people, who have suffered appalling provocation from enemies intent on wiping their country from the map.

Indeed, before anyone condemns them for acting against Hamas, we should consider how outraged we would be if our government stood by while neighbours rained rockets on our towns and villages.

But it is precisely because we have such high regard for Israel that we are so profoundly troubled by the scale of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s (below) bombardment of Gaza.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even the corporate media is starting to turn on Israel.

Ebola: Hunt Continues for Potential 30,000 'victims' of Outbreak (Video)

Five days ago American Patrick Sawyer, 40, died of Ebola. However, days before his death he visited four airports and those in contact with him in Nigeria's capital Lagos airport may be at risk spreading the disease globally. Now the hunt is on for 30,000 people who may be hosting the organism which kills 90 percent of its sufferers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a reminder, this particular strain of Ebola kills 56% of those it infects.

Humanize Palestine

The holiday at the end of Ramada brings mixed feelings and we could sense this here in Bethlehem on the faces of our Muslim neighbors, friends and colleagues. They tell us of their sadness at the massacres of whole families but they also tell proudly of resistance, persistence, resilience, self help and help to other. It is still a month of blessings. I was at the bank of Palestine on Saturday and saw lines of people sending money to colleagues and friends in Gaza. We had cloth and food drives. Convoys bringing medical aid are finally being allowed to enter even as 150 bodies were pulled from under the rubble in one neighborhood alone. Israeli soldiers speak to Haaretz of large scale destruction of civilian neighborhoods in Gaza and surprise and fear at the resistance fighters. Most people understand that Gaza is a big crowded prison that is being subjected to a most ruthless occupation that destroyed its economy and means of livelihood.

States Retain Authority to Secure Borders Against Illegals

Governor Rick Perry of Texas has taken the defense of Texas into his own hands, deploying up to 1,000 National Guard troops to his state’s border with Mexico. Accusing the federal government of offering nothing but “lip service” on securing the southern border, Perry declared, "I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor. We are too good of a country.”

Regardless of whether Perry’s actions serve to stem the tide of illegal immigrants flooding across the border, the effort of a state government to take control of its own safety is constitutionally sound and should be praised by all constitutionalists.

US Negotiating New Military Base in Uzbekistan

The United States is in negotiations to open a new military base in southern Uzbekistan that would bring $1 billion to the Uzbek budget annually, uzmetronom.com reported Wednesday.

“According to experts familiar with the situation, the main goal of a high-ranking American visitor, with the ranking of general, is to attain Uzbekistan’s consent to deploy an American contingent and military equipment, including aviation, in the Uzbek city of Termez, which is just across the Amu Darya River from Afghanistan,” the online newspaper reported commenting on the visit of the commander of the US Central Command Army, General Lloyd Austin, to Uzbekistan.

The US is ready to pay Uzbekistan $1 billion annually, according to uzmetronom.com.

Vladimir Putin Nemesis of the New World Order

Mother Russia is a much different country from the Stalin gulags. With all the faults of a long tradition of authoritarian rule, it is natural for observers in the West to be suspect of the latest would be Czar. The remnants of the cold war linger with concerns of the true motives and goals of a second Vladimir Putin era. By most reliable accounts, he never left the power circle prior to his return as President. Upon his latest election, The Guardian published an article Putin's election victory is a headache for the west. "Nobody is any doubt that the Putin who returns to the Kremlin in May is the same Putin who has effectively run Russia for the past 12 years – prickly, uncompromising, suspicious and fond of snide remarks about western hypocrisy and double standards."

THE PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS COLUMN (July 31, 2014)

Reading the Western Media, watching Western TV, and listening to Western radio, one is left with the propaganda that the Palestinians are to blame for the Israeli attack on Gaza, just as one is left with the propaganda that the Malaysian airliner deaths are Russia’s fault. There is no evidence, but propaganda does not require evidence. Just repetition.

‘Children killed in their sleep’: Israeli artillery fire hits UN school, killing at least 20

Israeli military fire hit a United Nations-run school in Gaza today, killing at least 20 people and injuring an estimated 90 people. The school under attack, called the Abu Hussein girls’ elementary school, is located in the densely-populated Jabaliya refugee camp.

The United Nations Relief Works and Agency (UNRWA), the group that serves Palestinian refugees, issued a stern statement placing the blame for the attack on the Israeli army.

MH17 – Sacrificed Airliner

Will the Empire allow the investigation to follow its course? The Western propaganda machine is in full gear. The twisting of facts, obscuring of evidence, and maneuvering public opinion all over the world: all this is being done with determination and routinely applied precision.

So much is at stake! Increasing cooperation between Russia, Latin America and China could mean the end of Western neo-colonial control of the world. The creation of alternatives to the World Bank can free billions of human beings from market feudalism and its slavery. Powerful news organizations broadcasting from Russia (RT), Venezuela (TeleSur) and Iran (Press TV) are consistently breaking the depressing and nihilistic monopoly of Western propaganda and control of people’s brains all over the world.

Israeli play expelled from Edinburgh venue as Scots protest against Gaza attack

Campaigners in Scotland have succeeded in pressuring the organizers of an arts festival into removing the Israeli state-funded Incubator Theater Company from a city center venue in Edinburgh.

Protests against Incubator’s play, a “hip-hop opera” titled The City, began with a letter signed by over fifty of the most high-profile artists and writers in Scotland, including the Scots Makar (poet laureate) Liz Lochhead. The play was on the program for the Edinburgh Fringe, reputedly the world’s largest arts festival.

Other signatories to the open letter calling for a boycott of Incubator included novelist and painter Alasdair Gray and playwright David Greig.

As atrocities mount in Gaza, US approves Israeli request for more bombs

Hours after Israel shelled yet another UN school sheltering internally displaced families and a marketplace in Gaza, killing dozens of people, an unnamed defense department official revealed to CNN that the US had approved an Israeli request to tap into the one billion dollar weapons stockpile the US keeps in Israel.

Abbas runs out of excuses for inaction on Israel’s war crimes

Israel’s latest attack on Gaza has now entered its fourth week; the number of Palestinians killed is nearing 1,300. And the Palestinian Authority still refuses to take any real action.

During a meeting in Ramallah this week, Mahmoud Abbas, the PA’s president, said, “The ugly and grotesque Israeli crimes against the Palestinian people must be stopped.” He added, “We ask the world to support us in seeking justice, and from now on we will study all our options to reach this purpose.”

That is typical talk from the PA. For years now, the authority has been studying “all our options” — without holding Israel to account.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

PA works for Israel today, just as HAMAS did originally when it was set up by Shin Bet to be the controlled opposition to Yasser Arafat's PLO. Which should be a warning to Abbas that when Israel sees him as to powerful, they will turn on him as well.

Hamas video exposes IDF blunder in deadly border infiltration

Hamas has been using Monday’s attack on a guard tower near Gaza to highlight its alleged victory over the Israel Defense Forces in this month’s fighting. The aftermath of the incident also reflects a rare shortcoming by the IDF Spokesman’s Office during the war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had heard through other sources that the IDF had suffered a humiliating defeat at the hands of HAMAS, but of course, not a word about it is on the US corporate media.

Anger and anguish as Gaza toll mounts

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu said Thursday morning that the destruction of Hamas tunnels from the Gaza Strip will go on, "with or without a cease-fire." Meanwhile, Israel is calling up 16,000 more reservists to, as officials put it, let soldiers now in Gaza return to see their families and get some sleep.

Israel clearly has the military high ground in the ongoing fight against the Palestinian militants, reports CBS News' Barry Petersen, but there has been broad condemnation for the Israelis' alleged pre-dawn attack Wednesday morning on a U.N. school in the densely populated Palestinian territory.

Official report on Kiev military losses

Info provided by John Durham, from the official report from the Ukraine Interior Minister, Avakov (who by the way will eventually be tried for war crimes, but chances are he may not live this long). I’ve seen this leaked report and I can confirm its existence.

Official Ukrainian Military Report of Losses for July 9-15, 2014(Arsen Avakov, Minister of Interior and V. Gritsak, Head of the ATO)

1. Desertions: 3473
2. Killed in Action: 1600
3. Wounded in Action: 4723
4. Tanks: 35
5. Armoured Battle Vehicles: 96
6. Artillery : 38
7. Aircraft: 7
8. Helicopters: 2
9. Automobiles: 104

In the event the negative trend continues…I estimate that 2/3 of the active combat military units currently participating in the ATO will simply cease to exist in as little as 4 to 5 days.

Argentina placed into ‘default’ rating as debt deal deadline expires

Argentina’s credit rating was downgraded to “selective default” by Standard & Poor’s as the South American country missed Wednesday’s deadline for a grace period during ongoing negotiations with holdout debt holders.

Wednesday is the cutoff for Argentina to make good on a $539 million payment to bondholders, which was placed on hold by a US judge’s order tying that payment to ongoing litigation by vulture funds which refused the country’s original cents-on-the-dollar debt restructuring offer.

Analysts generally do not believe that a default by Argentina will have the same consequences as in 2001.

US resupplying Israel with ammunition even after condemning shelling of Gaza school

No sooner than the White House condemned the shelling of a United Nations-operated school in Gaza on Wednesday did news break that the Pentagon will supply the Israeli military with new ammunition to further their campaign on the war-ravaged city.

That afternoon, CNN reported that the United States military will be honoring a request from Israel for assistance in the midst of their weeks-long campaign against militants from Hamas residing in Gaza City.

After consulting with the Centers for Disease Control and NC Department of Health and Human Services, it appears the risk for communicable disease is low. No further testing is needed and the patient will be sent home. The Emergency Department at Carolinas Medical Center remains open and operating normally."

CMC officials said earlier Wednesday that a patient was being tested, but a spokesman would not specify what for. Officials with CMC said Wednesday afternoon the patient had recently visited Africa.

House report advises eliminating IRS commissioner job, ACA management

Republican lawmakers on Tuesday proposed a total revamping of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), accusing the agency of being a political group rather than a nonpartisan government collection agency, according to the House pf Representatives Oversight Committee's latest report titled, "Making Sure Targeting Never Happens: Getting Politics Out of the IRS and Other Solutions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suggest that before making any changes to the IRS that you check those bills of ratification of the 16th Amendment that supposedly authorized a personal income tax (which was prohibited in the original Constitution), because Judge James C. Fox states quite clearly in Sullivan vs United States that the Amendment actually failed ratification, and the United States Supreme Court ruled in Stanton vs Baltic Mining that the 16th Amendment (even if ratified) did not actually confer any new tax powers on Congress, making the IRS and the income tax a 100 year criminal fraud perpetrated by the US Government and the FED against the American people.

Razing Gaza: Before and after satellite images show the true devastation of Israel's bombardment as 700 homes and mosques are turned to rubble and 400 craters blight the war zone

The obliteration of Gaza from relentless Israeli air strikes and tank shelling was laid bare today in a series of satellite images charting the escalating violence across the region.

Analysis from UN satellite experts reveal how hundreds of buildings have been razed to the ground in a series of attacks that have killed more than 1,300 Palestinians over the last three weeks.

Using images from July 6 - before the conflict began - and comparing them with ones from July 25, they have identified 700 destroyed structures, many of them homes and mosques.

Twin Strikes Claim 37 Lives in Gaza as Israel War Widens

Twin strikes on a United Nations school and the main public market in Gaza City claimed the lives of 37 people, Palestinians said, as Israel expanded its three-week-old offensive in the territory.

The UN Relief and Works Agency accused Israel of violating international law with the attack on the school, which it said was sheltering 3,300 people who had sought refuge there from the fighting. The Israeli army said troops were responding to fire launched at them from the vicinity. It also said it was looking into the report of an air strike on the market.

The attacks came as the Israeli military pushed deeper into the Hamas-controlled territory, according to military spokesman Brigadier-General Moti Almoz, in an interview with Army Radio. Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said today his army is ready to broaden its incursion further as it hunts for tunnels militants built to slip into Israel.

‘Telegenically Dead Palestinians’: Why Israel Is Losing the American Media War

In many ways, the story of this month's eruption of violence in Israel and Palestine has been depressingly familiar. But in one interesting way it has been a little bit different from the beginning: American audiences are seeing the story of the conflict, perhaps more than ever before, through Palestinian eyes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic case of being hoisted with your own petard. As the independent media has gained audience over the last decade, corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms have, to continue their profits, maintained that they are still in control of the minds of America and can make the dumb sheep think whatever they want them to.

Israel took them at their word and sent our the order, "Make them think we are the good guys as we slaughter the Palestinians."

And the corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms have, to put it mildly, cratered this assignment.

Which is a good thing. Israel is not only wrecking their own credibility but that of the governments that support them, and the aforesaid corporate media, ad agencies, and public relations firms.

'Bout time.

"US Will Feel Tangible Losses," Russia Prepares To Unleash Retaliatory Trade Wars

"It's a troubling continuation/expansion of trade as a geopolitical tool," warns one Washington-based consulting firm as Russia prepares to unleash retaliatory actions to US and European sanctions. As Bloomberg reports, Russia said yesterday it may ban imports of chicken from the U.S. and fruit from Europe and is investigating McDonald's cheese for safety. In addition, a Russian lawmaker has drafted legislation that might result in U.S. accounting firms being barred from doing business in his country. All of this is odd given Jack "trust me" Lew's reassurance that Russian sanctions would have no impact on the US economy. Russia's response, US will feel 'tangible losses' from 'destructive, myopic' sanctions.

As Bloomberg reports, while Russia and the U.S. have long sparred over agricultural trade, the actions fueled speculation they could be retaliatory.

Situation atrocious’: Russian Red Cross says E. Ukraine faces humanitarian catastrophe

The Russian Red Cross is not alone in its efforts. Russian Human Rights Commissioner Ella Pamfilova has been trying to achieve the same goal.

"We have made requests to the Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives who are present there, and to the Red Cross,” Pamfilova told RT. “We ask all warring parties to grant us a humanitarian corridor to rescue children with severe illnesses. In order to leave the shelling zone, they need special transport and specialist medical help.”

Residential areas have come under fire in the east of Ukraine as Kiev’s forces continue their military operation there. Ukrainian troops and anti-government forces have been blaming each other for the civilian casualties.

The town of Gorlovka in the Donetsk Region has for the last several days witnessed massive shelling. Twenty-seven civilians, including 4 children, were killed in the region July 27-29, the city council said.

He has apparently given his blessing to the firing on refugees, and children.

IDF general: Israel did not target Gaza’s power plant

An Israel Air Force general charged with all aerial ground support during the campaign in Gaza denied Tuesday that Israel targeted the Gaza Strip’s only power plant earlier in the day.

“The State of Israel did not attack Gaza’s power plant,” said Brig. Gen. Yaron Rosen, the commander of IAF Air Support and Helicopter Air Division.

The general said it was possible the plant had been hit by Israel by mistake.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With all those GPS guided weapons, courtesy of the American taxpayer, General Rosen?

Australian Parliament Members Speak Out Against Israel

Several state and federal Australian MPs have come out against Israel for their war crimes in Gaza. Although Australia’s government is still largely pro-Jew, this is a good sign. It is certainly a better situation than what we see in Jewmerica where we literally have no politicians regardless of political affiliation speaking out against Israel and evil Jews.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Australia's parliament makes the US Congress look like a bunch of PUSSIES!

DEBUNKING 5 ISRAELI POINTS JUSTIFYING GENOCIDE

Israel denies Palestinians the right to govern and protect themselves, while simultaneously invoking the right to self-defense. This is a conundrum and a violation of international law, one that Israel deliberately created to evade accountability.

19 MORE ‘TERRORISTS’ MURDERED BY ISRAEL ~~ HUNDREDS WOUNDED

srael killed at least 19 Palestinians sheltering in a school in Gaza’s biggest refugee camp on Wednesday, a U.N. official said, as Egyptian mediators prepared a revised proposal to try to halt more than three weeks of fighting.

Some 3,000 Palestinians, including many women and children, were taking refuge in the building in Jebalya refugee camp when it came under fire around dawn, Khalil al-Halabi, director of northern Gaza operations for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said.

The Gulf of Mexico Is Still Dying: Pathogenic Micro-organisms Proliferate Due To Polluted And Poisoned ‘Bioterrain’

What are the major factors contributing to the unrelenting degradation of the Gulf of Mexico?

We need to look no further than the mouth of mighty Mississippi River to assess some of the most obvious causes of the relentless destruction of the GOM. If one just considers what the Mississippi River dumps into the GOM on a daily basis, it is easier to grasp the enormity of the problems confronting every stakeholder. The most obvious types of pollution entering the GOM are conveyed in vast amounts from various sources throughout the American heartland. Countless kinds of harmful contaminants and toxic chemicals find their way into the Gulf via the Mississippi which comes from many different sources.

* Chairman of the Moscow Society and Regions Program - a project of the Globalist Carnegie Endowment For International Peace
* Adviser and Analyst for the hated drunken inept President Boris Yeltsin (1994-1995)

MH17 Wreckage Seems to Show It Was Struck with Bullets and a R-60 Air to Air Missile

Russian air control radars apparently registered an unidentified blip suddenly appearing on screen close to flight MH17 at the moment it was apparently hit; this blip later disappeared. Kartopolov insisted the radar signature was a Ukrainian military jet, apparently an Su-25 that could have attacked Flight MH17, using its two R-60 short-range heat seeker “shoot-and-forget air-to-air,” which these military planes are designed to carry for self defense.

According to the chief of staff of the Russian Air Force, Lieutenant-General Igor Markushev, who together with Kartopolov presented the official Russian outline of the MH17 crash, Ukrainian officials deny any of their military aircraft were in air at the time over Donbas, “but you see that is not so,” which is an indication of guilt, he alleged.

Further evidence to support this claim is shown below.

CDC: Stopping deadly Ebola outbreak will Be a 'marathon'

The deadly Ebola outbreak in West Africa is not showing any signs of slowing down, prompting U.S. health officials to issue more warnings for their staff in the region, encourage U.S. doctors to collect information about sick patients' travel histories and take more actions in the affected countries to bring the virus under control before it spreads to other regions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Outside of talk, I don't see where the US Government is giving this crisis the attention it deserves. The attitude seems to be that if they cannot use it to get more votes this November, it just isn't a priority compared with illegal immigration, sending weapons to Israel, and starting a war with Russia!

The problem is that it is only a matter of time before one of those illegals coming into the US bring Ebola with them. Obama is risking a major pandemic in this nation for the sake of his immigration policy success in the history books.

Video: If you voted for Hamas, Israel has a right to kill you, says president of NY Board of Rabbis

There was a pro-Israel rally of 10,000 people in New York yesterday, a half block from the United Nations, and Rabbi David-Seth Kirchner, the president of the NY Board of Rabbis, suggested that Palestinians who voted for Hamas are combatants who deserve to be targeted by Israel. He said:

When you are part of an election process that asks for a terrorist organization which proclaims in word and in deed that their primary objective is to destroy their neighboring country and not to build schools or commerce or jobs, you are complicit and you are not a civilian casualty.

The crowd cheered. Kirshner went on to say that the Israeli army is “the most moral army in the history of civilization.” He ended his remarks with the word, Amen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what about the slaughter of innocent Palestinian children, too young to vote, Rabbi?!?

I am certain that you have some kind of tortured logic with which to justify these actions, and I really wish, in your statements, that you would have just said it, in this speech, just to make your position perfectly clear.

In the last election, vetted by international observers, and characterized as being free and fair, Hamas won the election. THAT really annoyed Netanyahu no end.

And this year, when Fatah and Hamas were to announce a unity government, THAT darn near had Prime Minister Netanyahu exploding, because he could no longer say he didn't know who to talk to about peace. So what did he do?!? He suspended peace talks in April of this year.

And now, another massive IDF attack against Gaza, which will most probably kill hundreds of thousands. Apparently, when he makes that observation that the IDF is " ...the most moral army in the history of civilization.", it is painfully clear, the from Rabbi Kirchners's perspective, that morality equates to genocide.

Oh, and by the way, that statement about Palestinians not building schools or commerce or jobs?!?

I would like to thoughtfully point out that concrete, and other building materials are forbidden in Gaza.

So I would like him to elucidate, please on just HOW the Palestinians in Gaza are supposed to be able to build ANYTHING, with these restrictions in place, and here they are:

List no. 1: Items Subject to Specific Permission / List No. 2: Construction Items and Materials null UNRWA worker inspects a load of metal stock at the Kerem Shalom Crossing terminal before transfer to the Gaza Strip, June 2010 (Photo: Reuters) According to the decision taken on June 20, 2010, by the Israeli Security Cabinet, the Government of Israel - having reviewed the propositions put forward by the USG, the OQR and others - formed two categories of listed items whose entry into Gaza would be subject to Israeli control.

Items used as raw materials for improving protection for terror activists - Fibers or woven fabrics containing Carbon or Glass variants. iii. Vessels. List No. 2: Construction Items and Materials to be Allowed Entry into Gaza only for PA-authorized Projects Implemented by the International Community While such items are liable to be used for Hamas military purposes (building bunkers, fortifying positions and digging tunnels) Israel will permit their entry into Gaza so as to facilitate construction projects in Gaza - authorized by the PA and implemented and monitored by the international community. This list includes: Portland cement and lime (in bulk, bags or barrels) Natural and Quarry aggregates and all varieties of gravel Ready concrete Precast concrete elements and products Steel elements and/or construction products Iron for foundations and columns, at any diameter (including wielded steel nets) Steel cables of any width Forms for construction elements (plastics or galvanized iron) Industrialized forms for casting concrete Plastic or composite beams more than 4 mm thick Thermal isolation materials and products Blocs (at any width) - Concrete; Silicate; Ytong or its equivalent; or gypsum Materials and products for sealing structures Asphalt and its components (Bitumen, emulsion) in aggregate or packaged Steel elements or framing products for construction Cast concrete elements and products for drainage over 1 m in diameter Precast units and sea-borne containers Vehicles, excluding private cars and including 4X4 vehicles and other categories of motor vehicles liable to be used in terror activities Lumber beams and boards more than 2 cm thick, (liable to be used in "offensive" tunneling aimed at penetrating Israeli territory), unless incorporated in finished products Specific procedures, on a case by case basis, will be established so as to permit the transfer of such lumber for other purposes in Gaza.

If steel and concrete are denied items in Gaza, what, please can these people build from?!?

Congress Warns Obama Not to Push Israel for CeasefireSen. Kirk: Worth Thousands of Lives to Wipe Out Hamas

Efforts to negotiate a ceasefire in Israel’s ongoing invasion of the Gaza Strip aren’t sitting well with Israeli hawks, and by extension that means they aren’t sitting well with the US Congress.

That’s got Congressional officials up in arms, pushing President Obama to stop trying to negotiate a ceasefire in the conflict, and instead to endorse Israel’s war unconditionally, and irrespective of how bad it gets.

Underscoring just how far they’ll go, Sen. Mark Kirk (R – IL) insisted he was totally comfortable with Israel killing thousands of civilians in the current war if it meant wiping out Hamas, saying it was “worth it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, Senator Kirk, let me get this straight: you are for slaughtering thousands of non-combatants (women, infants, and the medically fragile elderly) in order to remove the duly elected government of Palestine, which was, in a free and fair election, won by Hamas?!?

It is pretty damned obvious, sir, that you have been truly been bought and paid for by the Israeli government. As reported at www.rightweb.irc-online.com in November of 2013:

An officer in the U.S. Naval Reserves and a former five-term House member, Kirk is one of Congress' top recipients of donations from "pro-Israel" advocacy groups, leading one critic to call him "AIPAC's Million Dollar Baby."[2] - See more at: http://www.rightweb.irc-online.org/profile/Kirk_Mark#sthash.pnXrgD6C.dpuf

And, as reported at huffingtonpost.com, in February, 2010:

Mark Kirk, the House member from Chicago who is now the GOP Senate nominee, is the #1 recipient of pro-Israel PAC money in the entire House. In fact, of the top 10 recipients from both Houses, he is the only House member. Why do the PACs love him? It is because Kirk is a pure Israel-firster. For Kirk, Israel can do no wrong. Add to that that he sits on the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Foreign Operations where he brings home the bacon for Israel big time. Its wish is his command.

And that money is sizeable, not only for Kirk, but also the top 20 recipients of pro-Israel money As reported in www.opensecrets.org:

Obama, Barack (D) $2,224,126 Lieberman, Joe (I-CT) $2,119,414 Kirk, Mark (R-IL) $1,712,133 Levin, Carl (D-MI) $1,404,375 McConnell, Mitch (R-KY) $1,358,155 Berkley, Shelley (D-NV) $1,282,305 Specter, Arlen (D-PA) $1,224,837 McCain, John (R-AZ) $1,172,307 Cantor, Eric (R-VA) $1,136,465 Clinton, Hillary (D-NY) $1,084,891 Ros-Lehtinen, Ileana (R-FL) $886,144 Durbin, Dick (D-IL) $829,484 Hoyer, Steny H (D-MD) $826,665 Cardin, Ben (D-MD) $799,665 Wyden, Ron (D-OR) $767,357 Lowey, Nita M (D-NY) $760,613 Harkin, Tom (D-IA) $740,445 Feinstein, Dianne (D-CA) $712,066 Boxer, Barbara (D-CA) $690,253 Engel, Eliot L (D-NY) $685,537 Industries in this Sector: Pick another Sector: Search for an industry: Find Your Representatives The numbers on this page are based on contributions from PACs and individuals giving $200 or more

So folks, please wake up and smell the falafel. US foreign policy, when it comes to the Middle East, is bought and paid for by the Israeli government, period, end of discussion.

It is time to send every Congressional represenative home, permanently, who has taken, and is taking, one cent from the Israeli lobby.

'It scares the Jesus outta me': Outrage as Nigerian 'Nollywood' star posts image of himself wearing Ebola mask in first class airport lounge as he flees Liberia

A Nigerian actor has sparked outrage after posting an image of himself wearing an Ebola mask while sitting in a first class airport lounge as he flees Liberia.

'Nollywood' star Jim Iyke posted a message on his Instagram page saying he had cut short a business trip to Monrovia in Liberia - where at least 600 people have already died from the disease.

The image of Iyke sitting on green leather-clad seats in the airport's luxury first class lounge while wearing an expensive designer watch and sunglasses was accompanied with the caption: 'Not ashamed to admit this scares the Jesus outta me #Ebola.'

Please Do Not Look Away From Israel’s Wholesale Slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza – Funded By U.S. Taxpayers!

Israel commits genocide and crimes against humanity. The UN and US turn blind eyes. And why not when the United States slaughters black males, children and the mentally ill for profit, sex and experimentation. The enforcers of these atrocities the United States government.

'You can't call it self-defence while you're murdering children': Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz lead the celebrity revolt over Gaza 'genocide'

Spain's leading film stars Penélope Cruz, Pedro Almodóvar and Javier Bardem are the latest major celebrities to go public with their views on the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

The trio are among a group of actors who have penned an open letter in a Spanish newspaper calling for Europe to condemn Israel's bombing of the Palestinian territory, which has now claimed at least 1,200 lives - many of them civilians.

The Spanish stars follow in the wake of celebrities, including singers Zayn Malik, Rihanna and Selena Gomez, and comedian Joan Rivers, who have spoken out either for or against the bombardment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only one who spoke out for it was Joan Rivers, who the Daily Mail apparently felt they needed to throw in there to make it look like opinions are evenly divided.

Did UN warn Israel SEVENTEEN times that bombed school was housing refugees? Horror as tank strike leaves 19 Palestinians dead and 125 injured

Israel was warned no fewer than 17 times that a school it destroyed with tank strikes killing 16 Palestinians and injuring 125 others had been housing refugees, the UN claimed today.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said children were killed as they slept next to their parents on the floor of a classroom in the Jabaliya refugee camp when shells smashed into the complex overnight.

UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl said it was the sixth time one of the organisation's schools had been struck by Israeli bombardments during the 23-day conflict.

In a furious response to the attack, he said: 'This is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today, the world stands disgraced.

'We know that there were multiple civilian deaths and injuries including of women and children and the UNRWA guard who was trying to protect the site.

'These are people who were instructed to leave their homes by the Israeli army.

Jul 30 07:32

What's not a target for Israel?

Israeli forces have killed more than 200 Palestinian children in the Gaza Strip over the past 23 days. In order to obfuscate this harsh reality, Israeli officials claim "self-defence" and contend that civilian deaths are justified because Hamas allegedly uses Palestinians in Gaza as human shields. Israel is an occupying power that is attacking and destroying an occupied Palestinian civilian population. These civilian deaths are not collateral damage. They are war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And Obama in his anger and outrage, especially after the insults to Secretary of State John Kerry ... sends more money to Israel and hits Russia with sanctions!

New York DHS will pay you $500 to rat out ‘prepper’ neighbors buying legal goods

New York’s Division of Homeland Security is posting signs on businesses to encourage people to snitch on fellow citizens who buy such things as MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat), ammunition, flash lights, match containers, gas masks and other items deemed to be ‘prepper’ in nature.

UN threatens sanctions on anyone trading oil with ISIS terrorists

The UN Security Council has voiced “grave concern” over reports of oil trading with ISIS militant groups in Iraq and Syria. ISIS has seized control of oilfields in the area and is reportedly using the revenues to finance its nascent Islamic State.

Russia submitted a draft statement to the Security Council on Monday night that would ban crude oil sales by terrorist organizations in Syria and Iraq, and potentially sanction anyone that does business with them. The measure “strongly condemns any engagement in direct or indirect trade of oil from Syria involving terrorist groups, and reiterates that such engagement constitutes financial support for entities designated by the Security Council 1267/1989 Committee as terrorist."

The statement also calls on all member states to take “necessary measures” to stop “nationals, entities and individuals” from engaging in transactions linked to non-state actors in the oil industry in Syria.

Swedish banks walk tightrope with sanctions

News agency Reuters reports that the EU has agreed on a sanctions package against Russia, over its role in Ukraine, on Tuesday. The details of the sanctions package will be finalized and released on Wednesday. The sanctions target the finance, defence and energy sectors.

The sanctions are initially set to last one year but a review will take place after three months, to judge their effectiveness. The sanctions were decided to only target future contracts, leaving existing contracts intact, like France's delivery of helicopter carrier warships to Russia.

According to Reuters, one of the sanction with the most impact will ban Europeans from buying new bonds or shares issued by banks owned 50 percent or more by the Russian state.

On Israel’s Doomed Fate

Just a month ago it seemed as if only divine intervention could save the Palestinians. However, as things stand at the moment, even God may find it difficult to rescue his favourite people. Israel has sunk into a fatal political, military and ideological paralysis. The destiny of the Jewish State has been revealed. It has no future in the region.

The key to understanding of Israel’s paralysis is not complicated. As much as Israelis favour the deployment of their devastating military might and its fire power, Israelis do not like to be caught with blood on their hands. As much as they like to kill, they hate to be the killers. This dilemma has matured into a political, ideological, strategic and spiritual deadlock. It puts the Jewish State into an impossible scenario that makes dwelling on someone’s else land simply unimaginable.

Ukraine's pipelines will lose 50% of value when South Stream starts - Naftogaz head

The South Stream gas pipeline, which bypasses Ukraine, may halve the value of Ukraine’s gas transportation system (GTS), according to Andrey Kobolev, head of Ukraine’s national oil and gas company Naftogaz.

After the Russian–led South Stream project is complete and working at full capacity, the value of Ukraine’s GTS may fall as much 50 percent from the present estimate of $25-$35 billion, RIA Novosti quotes the head of the company.

“We have no wish to lose it, and it’s unreasonable," Kobolev said on a Ukrainian local TV channel.

Construction of the South Stream pipeline in Bulgaria and Serbia was suspended following pressure from the EU to comply with competition law. After a while construction resumed.

"They [Gazprom] are ready to invest their own 15 billion euro in South Stream construction … This gas pipeline will take away from the Ukrainian transit potentially up to 60 billion cubic meters. Currently the transit carries 86 billion cubic meters," Kobolev said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this was the reason the US put tighter sanctions on Russian energy companies; to make South Stream politically unviable for Europe, and force them to use existing pipelines from Ukraine.

Relevance of Hannah Arendt’s “A Report On The Banality Of Evil” To Gaza

HA’s penetrating analysis in the book furnishes insights both into the mind of the perpetrators, and the overall societal mindset they were embedded in, which made these horrendous acts possible without any weight on their conscience. It provides a template for studying all such acts of barbarity by the organized and brute force of the state, with full complicity of the overwhelming population, against people who are made stateless either in the sense of being deprived of the state they had hitherto lived in or are forced to live as stateless wards of occupying power.

Hoax alert: video of “child firing an RPG on Gaza Beach” actually from Libya

Earlier this month The Electronic Intifada rumbled a hoax video claiming to show “Hamas using children as human shields” – in fact the video was from Syria.

Two days ago another hoax video, this one titled “Palestinian child firing an RPG on Gaza Beach July 2014,” was uploaded to YouTube.

But in fact the video is not from from Palestine at all.

The original appears to have been uploaded to LiveLeak three days ago. The description of the video says it may have been from Libya.

"Nowhere to Go": Gaza Suffers One of Deadliest Days So Far as Israel Vows "Protracted" Assault

Despite a U.N. Security Council call for a ceasefire, Israel has intensified its attack on Gaza and warned of a "protracted campaign." Palestinian officials say more than 110 people have been killed in the past 24 hours, with some saying Monday was the most intensive night of bombing so far. In this time period, Israel attacked more than 150 sites including Gaza’s only power station and a media center that houses the broadcasting headquarters of Hamas and a number of other Arab satellite news channels.

Later in the day, Israel's Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu delivers his answer, in plain language: he remains dead set on achieving his version of a Final Solution to Gaza. [1] With or without "pressure".

So what's left for the Fab Five after having their illustrious Western collective behinds solemnly kicked? They decide to dump Gaza and instead sanction Russia - again! How brilliant is that as an exit strategy?

Deadly shelling hits UN school, killing 16, as Hamas mulls truce

Israeli shells struck a UN school in Gaza early Wednesday, killing 16, as ground troops made a significant push into the territory despite Palestinian efforts to broker a 24-hour truce.

It was the second time in a week that a UN school sheltering hundreds of homeless Palestinians had been hit, with the latest violence pushing the Gaza death toll over 1,260.

The bloodshed came as a top-level Palestinian delegation including Hamas and Islamic Jihad leaders was preparing to head to Cairo to discuss a new proposal for a temporary humanitarian ceasefire, a top PLO official said.

But there was no word on whether Israel would respond to the initiative, with the military striking 75 targets in Gaza overnight as ground troops made a “significant advance” inside the narrow coastal enclave, army radio reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is NOT alleged Israeli "self-defense".

Let us call it what it truly is: genocide, writ large, and enabled by an American government which, at this point, has lost all legitimacy and morality.

Congressional Report: Ebola Bio Kits Deployed to National Guard Units In All 50 States

The Department of Defense informed Congress that it has deployed biological diagnostic systems to National Guard support teams in all 50 states, according to a report published by the Committee on Armed Services. The report, published in April amid growing fears that the Ebola hemorrhagic fever virus might spread outside of West Africa, says that the portable systems are designed for “low probability, high consequence” scenarios.

Some 340 Joint Biological Agent Identification and Diagnostic System (JBAIDS) units have thus far been given to emergency response personnel. The systems are “rapid, reliable, and [provide] simultaneous identification of specific biological agents and pathogens,” says executive officer for the DOD’s Chemical and Biological Defense group Carmen J. Spencer.

Lancet Medical Journal Denounces Israel’s Aggression, Targeting of Children, and Attempts to Kill Gaza – Seven Quotes

Doctors and scientists, on behalf of 24 signatories, in the peer-reviewed medical journal The Lancet,write:

“An Open Letter for the People of Gaza”

Seven crucial quotes:

Gaza is being killed by one of the world’s largest and most sophisticated modern military machines.

This is a “military onslaught on civilians in Gaza”

These attacks aim to terrorize

We witnessed targeted weaponry used indiscriminately and on children

We denounce the myth propagated by Israel that the aggression is done caring about saving civilian lives and children’s well-being.

Israel’s behaviour has insulted our humanity, intelligence, and dignity as well as our professional ethics and efforts.

Should the use of gas be further confirmed, this is unequivocally a war crime for which, before anything else, high sanctions will have to be taken immediately on Israel with cessation of any trade and collaborative agreements with Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What has to happen, to end this carnage, is to immediately implement boycott, divestment, and sanctions against Israel, on a universal, international front.

And all of those alleged Congressional representatives who voted to support this genocide need to understand that there is an election coming in November, and We the People (whose real needs and concerns go largely unaddressed by this Congress), are angry about the continued US government's illegal support and enabling of Israel.

The Symington Amendment states, very unambiguously, that any nation which refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, has nuclear weapons, and refuses to have those weapons inspected, gets absolutely no US military or financial aid.

And yet Congress breaks this law with impunity, every time it signs another check for Israel's financial or military aid.

And every time Congress does this, it further destroys its own credibility, which is very close to completely on the ropes at this time in this country's history.l

Patent workers paid to exercise, shop and do chores, investigation reveals

Dozens of employees working for an obscure federal agency went years with little work to do, allowing them to collect salaries and bonuses while they shopped online, caught up on chores, watched television or walked the dog, an investigation revealed Tuesday.

The probe by the Commerce Department’s inspector general found that paralegals at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office’s appeals board were paid more than $5 million for their time even though there was so little work for them to do that supervisors didn’t care how they used it.

U.S., EU hit Russia with more sanctions as Ukraine fighting continues

Russia became more isolated Tuesday than it has been at any time since the end of the Cold War after new, hard-hitting sanctions were announced by the European Union and the United States, U.S. officials said.

U.S. President Barack Obama said the measures would take an "even bigger bite" out of the stagnant Russian economy than sanctions Washington and the EU had already implemented against Russia over its disputed annexation of Crimea and its support of pro-Russian rebels fighting the Ukrainian government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the editors of cnn.com: CAN YOU POSSIBLY, PLEASE, QUIT LYING ABOUT THE SITUATION WITH UKRAINE?!?!?

Let's look at the timeline here:

1.The duly elected government of Ukraine was dumped in a putsch.
2.Crimea, in a free and fair election, and with international observers present, chose to allign itself with Russia in light of the fact that Ukraine no longer had a legitimate government.
3.The US/EU/UCB-enabled Portoschenko was "elected" as president in an election so completely crooked that all officials participating in it had to screw their socks on.
4.Russia has done absolutely nothing wrong. They have also taken in children and women who are fleeing from the bloodbath which Portoschenko has ordered for those Eastern Ukrainian areas which want to be separate, adn more independent from Ukraine.

And of course, God forbid that you should mention the real reason for these sanctions, which are generally a prelude to war; money, and whose currency wil be supreme in world trade in the future.

The ruble and yuan are gathering momentum as the currency of choice, and that is the real reason for these sanctions; to prevent these currencies from rising any more than they already have, in terms of countries not wanting to use the dollar anymore as an intermediary currency.

And the US government will literally go to war rather than have that happen.

Russian Naval Destroyer Moving to Mediterranean

The Russian Navy’s Vice-Admiral Kulakov, an Udaloy-class destroyer, is moving to the eastern parts of the Mediterranean Sea, where it will join the permanent Russian naval task force, Northern Fleet spokesman Capt. 1st Rank Vadim Serga said.

Earlier this month, the Vice-Admiral Kulakov entered the port of La Valetta, Malta, where Northern Fleet sailors celebrated Russia’s Navy Day while berthed in Dock No. 6 at the Maltese shipyard.

Earlier, the destroyer has also entered the port of Ceuta, Spain, and Cyprus’ port of Limasol.

While everyone's attention is glued on Russia and whether Obama can successfully launch World War III, things are going from bad to worse when it also comes to US relations with Israel. Recall that here things were already on the verge of disaster after for some reason, Kerry was unleashed to "arrange" a ceasefire with Israel, when in reality the SecState somehow managed to infuriate every single feuding faction (there are a lot of them), Israel included, after Haaretz wrote that "Kerry ruined everything."

The banksters were deathly afraid that Hitler's resuscitation of Germany's economy, which had been on life support and falling fast, but got turned around in a matter of years into what got called an economic miracle would start spreading to other nations, many of whom were being destroyed from within by the perverted banksters choke-hold on those nations.

RAISING ON A BUSTED FLUSH - Israel Still Swears Hamas Kidnapped Those Teens

Prime Minister Netanyahu had promised that Hamas would pay for the murder of Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach, and Gilad Shaar. But on Friday, Jon Donnison, a BBC reporter, citing the the spokesman, Mickey Rosenfeld, called Israel’s claim that Hamas was responsible into question.

Donnison tweeted that Rosenfeld told him that while the cell on the West Bank was operating alone, it was affiliated with Hamas. However, it did not receive direct orders from Hamas leadership.

Those tweets became the basis for a widely shared blog post saying Israel now conceded that the kidnappers acted in a lone cell and Hamas had nothing to do with it.

The twittersphere exploded with I-told-you-so’s from pro-Palestinian activists, who claimed Israel had manipulated events surrounding the killing of the teens to prepare for and justify its assault on Gaza, which has since killed more than 1,000 Palestinians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rosenfeld is now recanting his admission, but we don't need his word anyway. The claim that HAMAS kidnapped and killed those teens never made any sense at all. HAMAS and FATAH had just formed their unity government. They needed world support for what they were doing and would not have carried out an act that would turn world opinion against them.

Kidnapping and killing those three teens does not get HAMAS anything it needs.

Kidnapping and killing those three teens does get Netanyahu what he needs; an excuse to bomb Gaza.

Man from Newfoundland wants Prime Minister Charged for Advocating Genocide against The Palestinians! Makes one proud to be a Canadian!!

Andrew Abbass didn’t quite know what to expect when he walked in the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary’s Corner Brook headquarters on Monday morning.

Abbass was there to file a complaint.

Nothing unusual there for the police force, but the focus of his complaint was a little out of the ordinary.

Abbass is seeking to have Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird charged with advocating for genocide.
“They accepted it and filed the case,” he said shortly after leaving the RNC.

His complaint, which also alleges creation and dissemination of propaganda, breach of public trust and uttering threats, stem from comments Harper and Baird have made about the ongoing Israeli conflict.
“In painting Hamas and the people of Gaza as a terrorist organization they’re basically sanctioning the killing of civilians,” said Abbass.

Obama: ‘Not a new Cold War,’ but new Russia sanctions announced

President Obama announced a new round of U.S. sanctions against Russian banks and a shipbuilding company Tuesday, saying Russia must pay an increasingly high price for its military aggression in Ukraine and the downing of a passenger jet.

The penalties follow tougher sanctions agreed to by European Union leaders earlier in the day.

“Today is a reminder that the United States means what it says,” Mr. Obama said in a statement on the South Lawn of the White House. “It didn’t have to come to this. There continues to be a better choice.”

Israel Right or Wrong: But What’s In It For Americans?

It is a familiar scenario. Israeli is killing hundreds of civilians, mostly women and children, and the Zionist propaganda machine is working overtime. The President of the United States reaffirms America’s solemn pledge to protect Israel at all costs and justifies the carnage by stating that Israel has a right to defend itself. Secretary of State John Kerry repeats the message and the US House and Senate pass unanimously American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) drafted resolutions affirming the same.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lies repeatedly and the US media gives him a bully pulpit to spread his disinformation about what is occurring, including the propaganda cartoon depicted above explaining why he had to use artillery and bombs to level a residential district, killing nearly 100 civilians in what was described as a “heinous massacre.”

The Greatest Injustice of the 20th Century

And the greatest theft ever orchestrated.

In the 1900s, Ashkenazi and European Zionist Jews, under the same pretext as that used by the so called ‘Christian’ Crusaders, flooded into Palestine armed with terror and violence and backed by the imperial might of Britain.

Many political analysts and historians of that time saw the Jewish invasion of Palestine as a British imperial project, this time using Zionist Jews as cannon fodder much like Zionist ‘Christians’ were used during the Middle Ages when the Europeans’ goal was to plunder the area and control the Mediterranean.

Now, the English empire wanted a beachhead to keep the Middle East in turmoil and divided so as to conquer and control the Arabs who control the oil while keeping their own hands on the wells’ spigots. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement: the Jews got their land and the Empire got an outpost.

Open Letter to the Liberal Party of Canada on Gaza Massacre

Dear Liberal Party of Canada,

Whatever one thinks of the Israel/Palestine "conflict" or Hamas or whether Israel is a democracy, we have one simple question: when will you speak out against Israel’s indiscriminate killing of hundreds of civilians, including over 200 children?

The Liberal Party statement is so detached from the reality of what is taking place in Gaza right now that we have to wonder whether perhaps the second half of the statement got lost somewhere.

Four boys playing soccer on the beach, three kids feeding birds on a roof, and over 200 more; murdered for the sole crime of being Palestinian children. And while the Liberal party's public statement goes to great length to criticize Hamas for targeting civilians, it is entirely silent on Israel's killing of Palestinian children or civilians in general.

The Liberal Party statement fails to point out that it was the Netanyahu government that instigated this "conflict" in the first place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's review the timetable.

Last month, three Israeli teenagers were kidnapped and killed in an IDF-controlled region of the West Bank, not Gaza. ISIS has taken credit and even the Israeli media admits that the two suspects named by the Israeli government are not part of HAMAS, but of a group known for disobeying HAMAS and trying to cause trouble for them.

But Netanyahu declares HAMAS, the legally elected government of Gaza, responsible and launches bombing raids into Gaza using the very latest high-tech weapons provided by the US Government and paid for by the US taxpayers.

To put Israel's actions into perspective, let us recall that over the July 4th weekend, 8 people were killed in Chicago. Using Netanyahu's logic, the Democratic party should be blamed and all of Illinois bombed and invaded!

The Palestinians, who have been attacked without provocation, fight back with their home-made rockets, which so far have mostly knocked a few roof tiles loose.

But to Israel's supporters, we should all forget that Israel attacked Gaza without a valid reason, and view Palestine's attempts to defend themselves as the crime, so that Israel can go on pounding the Palestinians with their superior weapons.

I want to point something out. The Israelis sit in their tanks, or the drone operations centers, or fly high above Gaza in their US-supplied warplanes, dropping the latest in US-supplied high tech lethal munitions, and imagine themselves the heroes they read about in the Torah. The Israelis, clearly unafraid of HAMAS rockets, line the hills overlooking Gaza and cheer the carnage, much as the Romans at the Colosseum cheered as the Christians were thrown to the lions. The Palestinians huddle in their giant open-air prison, without an army, a navy, or an air force, and fight back with home-made rockets made out of plumbing supplies.

Not since Thermopylae has the world seen such courage in the face of overwhelming odds. The Palestinians have balls the US and Israel can only dream of, and the world will remember their courage against the tyrants, and the lies by the corporate media's presstitutes and whorespondents trying to protect Israel's aggression!

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: 

Earlier this week the US Government 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...

BREAKING: Jury awards Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in 'American Sniper' lawsuit

A jury awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle.

On the sixth day of deliberations, the federal jury decided that the 2012 best-selling book defamed Ventura in its description of a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man, whom he later identified as Ventura, after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs "deserve to lose a few."

Ventura testified that Kyle fabricated the passage about punching him. Kyle said in testimony videotaped before his death last year that his story was accurate.

The Cultivation of Hate

If there were any doubts that Western “leaders” live in a fantasy make-believe world constructed out of their own lies, the G-7 meeting and 70th anniversary celebration of the Normandy landing dispelled the doubts.

The howlers issuing from these occasions are enough to split your sides. Obama and his lap dog Cameron described the Normandy landing on June 6, 1944, as “the greatest liberation force that the world has ever known” and took all the credit for the US and Britain for the defeat of Hitler. No mention was made of the Soviet Union and the Red Army, which for three years prior to the Normandy landing had been fighting and defeating the Wehrmacht.

The Germans lost World War II at the Battle of Stalingrad, which was fought from August 23, 1942 until February 2, 1943, when most of the remnants of the powerful German Sixth Army surrendered, including 22 generals.

Church of the Nativity, April 2002

The Church of Nativity incident remains one of the most talked about acts of brutality by the Israel’s forces. The world saw a siege of the Church of Nativity on April 2, 2002 and it lasted till May 10, 2002. A group of Palestinian Arabs entered the church in Bethlehem, one of the most sacred sites for Christianity, seeking refuge from the Israeli Defense Forces. Israeli soldiers from the IDF surrounded the church and targeted Palestinians, exchanging fires and plunging into the discretion of Holy places of Christians, for which Israel is much noted for.

The first claim of a wrong move from IDF became clear from the statement of Michael Sabbah, Head of the Roman Catholic Church and the Latin patriarch of Jerusalem. He said:

"The basilica is a place of refuge for everybody, even fighters, as long as they lay down their arms. We have an obligation to give refuge to Palestinians and Israelis alike".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel is trying to move away from the embarrassment of having falsely blamed HAMAS for the killing of three Israeli teenagers in the West Bank by re-framing the current conflict as "Jews against Muslims." But you need to remember that Israel has a long history of attacking Christian holy sites, as well as blocking access to them during Christian holidays for "security reasons."

Israel’s Heart of Darkness

“They were conquerors, and for that you want only brute force nothing to boast of, when you have it, since your strength is just an accident arising from the weakness of others. They grabbed what they could get for the sake of what was to be got. It was just robbery with violence, aggravated murder on a great scale, and men going at it blind as it is very proper for those who tackle the darkness. The conquest of the earth, which mostly means taking it away from those who have a different complexion or slightly flatter noses than ourselves, is not a pretty thing when you look at it too much…”

A federal judge on Tuesday granted a 90-day stay in a ruling that upended the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public.

The order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Scullin brings a temporary reprieve to D.C. officials, who were sent scurrying over the weekend to interpret the effects of the ruling that gutted the city’s restrictive gun laws.

An order issued Saturday by the judge struck down the city’s ban on the carrying of guns in public as unconstitutional. While still struggling to comprehend the scope of the order, D.C. police ordered officers to stop arresting people for carrying legally registered guns on city streets.

The blinders and self-deception in such a statement are truly mind-boggling. As if corporate globalization, pushed by the U.S. government and its closest allies, with the help of the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF, had not unleashed a tremendous immiseration process on the Third World, with budget cuts and import devastation of artisans and small farmers.

Hawaii mayoral candidate tased after police chase (VIDEO)

Beau Hawkes isn’t the only contender in the upcoming Maui County, Hawaii mayoral race, or even the only one to be arrested in recent weeks. Currently, however, Hawkes is the only hopeful that can say he was tasered while trying to run from the cops.

Following an electrifying encounter with local law enforcement last Wednesday that ended with Hawkes being charged with resisting arrest and failing to obey an officer, the 34-year-old surfer candidate is free on $300 bail and says he is “absolutely” still running for office.

Furthermore, the potential future mayor of Maui says he’s going to sue the police department over his latest run in with the law and, once elected, will order cops to discontinue using their stun guns.

“Tasers are a violation of our human rights,” the mayoral hopeful told KITV News this week. “Maui Police Department will be the first police department to ban the user of Tasers.”

The latest arrival was Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who on Monday was in Trinidad and Tobago, the second stop on a five-country tour that began on Friday in Mexico.

Abe’s visit began just as Chinese President Xi Jinping wrapped up his tour, which included stops in Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba. Xi signed more than 100 trade agreements on the trip.

Russian President Vladimir Putin was in the region for a week from July 11, stopping in Argentina, Brazil, Nicaragua and Cuba.

Britain’s Plague of Pederasty and Power

As the bombs drop in Gaza and in eastern Ukraine, another siege has been underway in Great Britain. A sustained barrage of a different kind of bombshell continues to rain down on the centre of power in Westminster…

An epidemic of paedophiles, or to be more accurate, of ‘Pederasts‘, has for decades, freely festered in and around the governing institutions and media and entertainment in the UK.

Past proponents of the sordid practice (image, left, of ancient paedohile folklore), like the part publicly-funded Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE), were even paid to lobby for a more relaxed paedophile culture in Britain, including active lobbying to lower the age of consent to 12 years old. Many of those who were involved or helped to facilitate PIE’s presence in Westminster – are still in government, or quango organisations today.

Exposed - U.S. Diplomat Behind Artillery Satellite Images was Involved in the Toppling of Yanukovich

It turns out that the man the U.S. State Department chose to handle the the latest phase of Russia demonization played an integral role in the toppling of the Ukrainian government.

Geoffrey Pyatt was the man on the other end of the now infamous leaked Victoria Nuland call. That was the call in which the U.S. State Department got caught red handed discussing who they were going to install in the Ukrainian government after the fall of Yanukovich. If you haven't listened to that call, you should. It was very revealing.

Oh, by the way, you probably heard of this audio clip back when it was first released. The main stream media put all attention on the fact that Victoria Nuland said "Fuck the E.U." Apparently these "journalists" consider her potty mouth to be more important than the fact that the U.S. State Department was caught red handed installing a puppet government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I now fully expect the Federal Government to lie to me about everything they are doing, and at every serpentine turn in the application of both domestic and foreign policies which only benefit large corporations, and no longer We the People.

This isn't hyperbole; it is just an ongoing reality.

Boehner rules out impeachment: ‘Scam started by Democrats’

Talk of impeachment was cooked up by a White House desperate for something to rally Democrats ahead of November’s elections, House Speaker John A. Boehner said Tuesday, flatly ruling out any action on the controversial suggestion.

“We have no plans to impeach the president. We have no future plans,” Mr. Beohner said. “Listen, it’s all a scam started by Democrats at the White House.”

President Obama Needs to Cancel Executive Order 12333

We’re all too familiar with the bulk collection of cellphone metadata—information on whom you contact and when—that Edward Snowden revealed. However, Executive Order 12333 from 1981 (thanks, President Reagan) allows the NSA to collect the actual content from phone calls and Internet communications if they are amassed from outside U.S. borders. John Napier Tye, former section chief for Internet freedom in the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, recently wrote about this issue in The Washington Post.

On the crisis in Israel with Hamas and the Palestinians, Celente says, “If this continues to increase at the rate it is going, it will be hell for everyone. There is also the fear that this could spread into the Lebanese border. As a trend forecaster, if peace is not brought to that region and this continues to spread, and if it goes into Lebanon, it will be hell on earth for everyone in that region. . . . We are building up to World War III.”

U.S. Promises “Robust Retaliation” for Alleged Russian Troop Deployment on Ukrainian Border

Earlier in the week senior U.S. intelligence officials admitted they have no direct evidence Russia or the separatists shot down the Malaysian airliner.

“Rather than backing down after last week’s downing of a civilian passenger jet, Russia appears to be intervening more aggressively in the war in eastern Ukraine,” The New York Times reports.

Officials say the unconfirmed move represents “a dangerous escalation that will almost certainly force more robust retaliation from the United States and Europe.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US current propaganda is, "We think Russia might be planning to send troops into Ukraine, so we have to go ahead and send ours in. Just in case, you know. Because we don;t want to be caught by surprise. Right? Right? Right? Right? Right? Right?"

Israel-Gaza conflict: 10 Palestinian children killed and 46 injured in strike on hospital and park

Two strikes which hit the compound of Gaza City’s main hospital and a nearby park killed ten children and wounded 46 on Monday – hours after Israel and Hamas had declared a truce.

The park in the Shati refugee camp was hit minutes after a strike on the outpatients unit at the Shifa Hospital on the edge of the city.

Ayman Sahabani, the head of the emergency room at Shifa Hospital, claimed that children were playing on a swing in the park when they were killed. Nine of the 10 killed were children under the age of 12, and 46 were injured. Camera crews were prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa, according to reporters on the scene.

IMF warns of adverse effects of anti-Russia sanctions

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has warned that the sanctions imposed on Russia over the ongoing crisis in Ukraine would have adverse effects on a global scale.

Speaking at a news conference on Wednesday, IMF spokesman William Murray said that the potential global impacts of the anti-Russia sanctions are “still under assessment, but clearly you would anticipate - through trade channels - that there would be an impact.”

Murray also emphasized that the sanctions are expected to affect the economies “that have very active and direct trade links with Russia, particularly in eastern and central Europe and central Asia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sanctions are most generally a prelude to war, and that is the scary part here.

And even more scary is the reality that the US government doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia, meaning such a war may well go nuclear in a heartbeat.

‘Mind-Blowing’ Bible Experience Answers: God Gave Israel To Jews?

So….I may get crucified for this but I have started to say it — most recently (terrified, trembling) to warm welcome in a synagogue in LA:

Actually if you read Genesis Exodus and Deuteronomy in Hebrew — as I do — you see that God did not “give” Israel to the Jews/Israelites. We as Jews are raised with the creed that “God gave us the land of Israel” in Genesis — and that ethnically ‘we are the chosen people.”

But actually — and I could not believe my eyes when I saw this, I checked my reading with major scholars and they confirmed it — actually God’s “covenant” in Genesis, exodus and Deuteronomy with the Jewish people is NOT ABOUT AN ETHNICITY AND NOT ABOUT A CONTRACT. IT IS ABOUT A WAY OF BEHAVING.

Deleted BBC Report. “Ukrainian Fighter Jet Shot Down MHI7?, Donetsk Eyewitnesses

The original BBC Video Report was published by BBC Russian Service on July 23, 2014.

In a bitter irony, The BBC is censoring its own news productions.

Why did BBC delete this report by Olga Ivshina?

Is it because the BBC team was unable to find any evidence that a rocket was launched in the area that the Ukrainian Security Service (“SBU”) alleges to be the place from which the Novorossiya Militia launched a “BUK” missile?

Or is it because every eyewitness interviewed by the BBC team specifically indicated the presence of a Ukrainian military aircraft right beside the Malaysian Airlines Boeing MH17 at the time that it was shot down?

FLASHBACK - The Godmother of Fake Hate Crimes

Her car had been vandalized, its windows smashed, tires slashed. And profane, anti-Semitic graffiti covered the wreckage.

The campus was shocked. CMC and all four of its sister colleges canceled classes (they didn’t even do that on 9/11). An emotional student body held a giant rally against racism. The riveting spectacle was covered by network news.

Undoubtedly, the whole affair would have been a great career boost for Dunn if only two students hadn’t seen her doing all the vandalism herself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With Israel's public image on the ropes, expect a flurry of these faked hate crimes to be staged, complete with the outdated Swastika, so that Israel can start screaming "Anti-semite" and "Jew hate" as a shield for their war crimes in Gaza.

FLASHBACK - Morton Downey's swastika

Downey's show started in the fall of 1987, was a bona-fide hit all through 1988, and was suffering in the ratings and close to dead by the middle of 1989. That's how quickly the American public got sick of him. By the fall of 1989 he was desperate to save his show from cancellation.

That's when he staggered out of a San Francisco International Airport bathroom with a swastika scrawled on his face and a story about being attacked by neo-Nazis who attempted to shave his head.

(Shave his head? Why? If a skinhead shaves your head, does that automatically infuse you with an affection for Adolf Hitler? I don't get it.)

Just TWO climate committee MPs contradict IPCC: The two with SCIENCE degrees

The UK's Parliamentary climate change select committee has just issued a written endorsement of the latest, alarmist UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. However, two MPs - the two most scientifically qualified on the committee - have strongly disagreed with this position.

The IPCC's latest AR5 report takes a firmly alarmist position on carbon and climate change, predicting massively accelerated global warming and attendant sea level rises, crop failures and other global disasters unless human emissions of greenhouse gases - particularly carbon dioxide - are sharply curbed. The UK parliamentary committee report just out now firmly endorses this.

But not all the committee's members are convinced.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of the governments enslaved to private central banks are desperately broke and in debt. Their solution, the only solution that ever occurs to them, is to find a way to take more money from you, even to the point of outright fraud and lies, which is the case with human-caused global warming. That ius why, despote several record winters following the 2000 declaration that snow is a thing of the past...

... the carbonazis are still trying to convince you that the Earth is warming up and you are the sole cause of it, with atonement only possible by surrendering more of your money to them.

I will go out on a limb here and predict we are heading into an even harsher winter than last year. I base this not only on the obvious cooling trend of the last several years but on the almost compete absence of sunspots during what is supposed to be the solar maximum. This is a repeat of the "Maunder Minimum", the observed decline in sunspots that triggered the Little Ice Age.

In 'Ugly' Resolution, US Politicians Back Israel's Assault on Gaza

As the civilian death toll in Gaza continues to climb, the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a symbolic resolution—backed by the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee—blaming Hamas for the bloodshed and condemning them for the alleged use of "human shields." But critics say this effort is just another U.S. affirmation of support and impunity for Israel, despite the fact that Israel's fighter jets, attack helicopters, drones, and soldiers are doing the killing.

"The resolution is a rhetorical statement, but it makes things really ugly," Phyllis Bennis, senior fellow at Institute for Policy Studies, told Common Dreams. "This resolution says that the elected representatives of the American people are standing with the slaughter of children and not saying a word about it. When you are doing that while you are paying Israel's bills and providing it protection in the United Nations, you are complicit."

POLICE STATE: Border Patrol Attacks Americans, Lets Illegals Go

Stossel found that the U.S. border Patrol is allowed to set up roadblock for 100 miles inland from the outer border of our entire country. But, as it happens, the largest portion of the country’s population lives within 100 miles from a border.

These agents are stopping cars with no cause whatsoever, forcing citizens to answer dozens of question, conducting searches of vehicles and tazing and detaining American citizens if they refuse to comply.

According to the U. S. Supreme Court the US Border patrol is not allowed to stop cars and search vehicles inside the U.S. but they are doing this anyway all across the country. The court has said that the Border Patrol may conduct a “brief” stop only to ask if the those in a vehicle are citizens and that is it.

FLASHBACK 2010 - Israeli assassinations: crime against humanity?

Dominating the world news, even in the United States, is the Al-Mabhouh assassination. Israel has a long history of engaging in targeted killings and assassinations, so why has this one sparked media frenzy? Many outlets are focusing on the use of fake passports, while others are condemning the lack of action by those governments whose passports were used. Very few are actually focusing on the act of assassination itself and its consequences under international law. While targeted killings of specific individuals with government approval are permissible under international law under certain conditions, assassinations (an attack on an individual who believes there is no need to fear the attacker) are not. Was the murder of Al-Mabhouh an assassination? If so, is this another Israeli crime against humanity?

Russia’s Defense Ministry has stated that “fake” satellite images of alleged shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory were created by US counselors “with close links to Ukraine’s Security Council.”

The authenticity of the images is impossible to prove, the ministry added.

The Defense Ministry stated that the images posted by the US ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt on his Twitter account, allegedly proving the shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory, are “fake,” ITAR-TASS reports.

“These materials were posted to Twitter not by accident, as their authenticity is impossible to prove – due to the absence of the attribution to the exact area, and an extremely low resolution. Let alone using them as ‘photographic evidence’,” Igor Konashenkov, the official representative of the ministry, stated.

As one of the first to predict an immanent Israeli defeat in this round of violence, I was delighted to read this morning that Zionist mouthpiece Jeffrey Goldberg admits that Israel has lost the war. “Why Is Israel Losing a War It's Winning?” asks Goldberg. The Jewish State is a regional super power, its lobbies dominate Western politics, it is technologically superior, so what could have gone wrong?

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.

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.

The US just entered the Ukraine war.

They just hope you won't notice because of all the blood and carnage down in Gaza!

Ukraine Offensive Grows Around MH17 Disaster Site

Ukraine’s military appears to have entirely abandoned a promised plan to avoid fighting in the area surrounding the MH17 crash site, and is said to have attacked the town of Shakhtarsk, just 10 miles away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clearly they are trying to take control of the crash site to prevent any embarrassing evidence from surfacing, just like the US Navy did off the coast of Long Island after accidentally shooting down TWA 800.

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.
