From the Very Creation of the Internet, U.S. Spy Agencies Fought to Block Encryption

American spy agencies have intentionally weakened digital security for many decades. This breaks the functionality of our computers and of the Internet. It reduces functionality and reduces security by – for example – creating backdoors that malicious hackers can get through.

The spy agencies have treated patriotic Americans who want to use encryption to protect their privacy as extremists … or even terrorists.

As Gizmodo’s Matt Novak points out, this attack started at the very birth of the internet:

John Nash, ‘A Beautiful Mind’ Subject and Nobel Winner, Dies at 86

John F. Nash Jr., a mathematician who shared a Nobel Prize in 1994 for work that greatly extended the reach and power of modern economic theory and whose decades-long descent into severe mental illness and eventual recovery were the subject of a book and a 2001 film, both titled “A Beautiful Mind,” was killed, along with his wife, in a car crash on Saturday in New Jersey. He was 86.

Dr. Nash, and his wife, Alicia, 82, were in a taxi on the New Jersey Turnpike in Monroe Township around 4:30 p.m. when the driver lost control while trying to pass another car and hit a guard rail and another vehicle, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.

Banks and Punishments

Occasionally people inquire as to the different treatment of different kinds of persons in our legal system. As the U.S. Supreme Court has explained, corporations are persons just like my readers. The only difference between a corporate person and a human person is that when a human person breaks the law, the human person depending on the offense, may go to jail. When a corporate person breaks the law, the corporate person may be punished, but is never sent to jail.

The Destabilization of Macedonia? Greater Albania and the Process of "Kosovization"

The last open armed conflict in the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia – FYROM (former Socialist Republic of Macedonia as one of six federal republics of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) is just an expected continuation of constant tensions between the ethnic Albanians and the Macedonian Slavs during the last quarter of century.[i] However, these tensions are time to time transformed into the open armed conflicts of the Albanian extremists, usually coming from Kosovo, with the Macedonian security forces.

Hillary Clinton Says She Supports GMOs

In a recent speech before the world's largest biotechnology meeting in San Diego, Clinton -- who commands speaking fees of about $225,000 per speech -- was enthusiastic in her support for the use of GMOs in farming and agriculture in general. She also spoke positively of using taxpayer-funded federal financial subsidies as payoffs to American companies, to keep them from relocating outside the United States.

Voters don't trust news media's coverage of Hillary Clinton: Poll

Rasmussen Reports released the results of a national survey on Thursday that revealed 61 percent of likely voters have no trust in the political news they are getting. That's a 16-point increase from the 45 percent who said they did not trust the political news in a poll conducted in October 2014. Only 21 percent of the respondents said they still have confidence in the political coverage they get, but that's a 12-point decrease from the 33 percent in the October 2014 survey. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.

Sorting Out Medical Advice from Medical Nonsense

While it’s hard to comprehend, some health recommendations are completely fabricated and are not based in any science. Dr. Kendrick wrote about this in a recent article for The Independent:1

“If you are a man, it has virtually become gospel that drinking more than 21 units of alcohol a week is damaging to your health. But where did the evidence to support this well-known ‘fact’ come from?

The answer may surprise you. According to Richard Smith, a former editor of the British Medical Journal, the level for safe drinking was ‘plucked out of the air.’

He was on a Royal College of Physicians team that helped produce the guidelines in 1987. He told The Times newspaper that the committee's epidemiologist had conceded that there was no data about safe limits available and that ‘it's impossible to say what's safe and what isn't.’

THE BATTLE FOR PALMYRA: WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ACCORDING TO OUR MILITARY SOURCES

Even nominally friendly sites like NSNBC are misreporting events in this historically important town in the far east of Homs Governorate. Many sites are simply making the fatuous statement that the entire city of Palmyra has been overrun by ISIS fanatics and that includes Alalam and Al-Mayaadeen. Interesting to note that neither news source has anyone on the ground there to report directly.

U.S. Intelligence Predicted: U.S. Support For Rebels in Syria Would Lead To Fall of Ramadi

Thanks to Brad Hoff for pointing in the comments here to the Defense Intelligence Agency reports from August and October 2012 about the war on Syria. The DIA was the one U.S. intelligence agency that got the Iraq WMD case right but its appraisals, for example that the famous "aluminum tubes" were ordered by Iraq to build mortar tubes, were suppressed by the Bush administration. The now published heavily redacted DIA reports were released after Freedom Of Information Act litigation by the conservative Judicial Watch.

Sweetener Stevia Was Once Hailed As An Anti-Fertility Agent for Population Reduction

Check out this textbook written in 1970 by Paul and Anne Ehrlich, the precursor to the textbook Ecoscience they wrote with Obama Science Czar John P. Holdren seven years later. The book advocates all manner of horrors to depopulate what they consider an overpopulated world, including everything from adding sterilants to the water and food to producing a sterilizing virus that requires a vaccine antidote one could apply for... it's a nightmare.

As such, it was pretty shocking to find a passage where the authors excitedly discuss using stevia rebaudiana — the same sweet leaf hailed everywhere today as a wonderful, healthy sugar alternative — as an anti-fertility agent

Note that part about infecting the world with a virus that prevents pregnancy, then selling the antidote!

Pentagon eyes Alaska for $1bn missile defense radar against Iran, N.Korea

he US Department of Defense says Alaska is its preferred location to deploy a new long-range “must-have” radar to enable missile defense systems to better intercept potential enemy threats, such as from Iran or North Korea.

The Pentagon says that the new Long Range Discrimination Radar (LRDR) will begin defensive operations in 2020 and will boost the capacity of ground-based interceptors in Alaska and California. The Clear Air Force Station, an Air Force Space Command radar station in central Alaska, has been chosen as the preferred location for the radar.

Secret Pentagon Report Reveals US "Created" ISIS As A "Tool" To Overthrow Syria's President Assad

From the first sudden, and quite dramatic, appearance of the fanatical Islamic group known as ISIS which was largely unheard of until a year ago, on the world's stage and which promptly replaced the worn out and tired al Qaeda as the world's terrorist bogeyman, we suggested that the "straight to beheading YouTube clip" purpose behind the Saudi Arabia-funded Islamic State was a simple one: use the Jihadists as the vehicle of choice to achieve a political goal: depose of Syria's president Assad, who for years has stood in the way of a critical Qatari natural gas pipeline, one which could dethrone Russia as Europe's dominant - and belligerent - source of energy, reaching an interim climax with the unsuccessful Mediterranean Sea military build up of 2013, which nearly resulted in quasi-world war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And having created this new Emmanuel Goldstein, the US now paints all the people of nations trying to throw off US puppet rule as 'ISIS' so Americans don't realize the truth behind these imperial conquests and re-conquests and re-re-conquests!

Hillary Clinton Endorses GMOs

What they want the rest of America to eat is another story altogether - especially if Hillary is elected president in November 2016. At a July 2014 biotech conference, she publicly endorsed GMOs saying "I stand in favor of using seeds and products that have a proven track record." She attacked GMO critics adding "(t)here is a big gap between what the facts are, and what the perceptions are." The Clinton and Bush II families ate organic foods. Walter Scheib was White House executive chef from 1994 - 2005..... On May 17, the Washington Times said Hillary's biotech/agribusiness ties earned her the nickname "Bride of Frankenfood." "In the GMO debate, Mrs. Clinton has consistently sided with the chemical companies," WT said.

Obama, Master of Diversion, Proposes Bogus Reforms of Militarized Police

“It is the MISSION of the police that is lethal, racist, oppressive and unacceptable to Black America; the equipment and clothing is incidental.”

President Obama took his police “reform” shell game to Camden, New Jersey, this week, announcing a ban on the sale of some types of military equipment to local police departments, and restrictions on other weapons, gear and equipment. As with all of the administration’s responses to the nine-month-old Black Lives Matter movement, it was an exercise in public relations and calculated diversion, crafted to camouflage the essential nature of the Mass Black Incarceration State – what Michelle Alexander calls the New Jim Crow.

Why the US is Finally Talking to Russia

The Dr. Zbig “Grand Chessboard” Brzezinski-style strategy has always been to lure Russia into another Afghanistan in Ukraine, leading to a collapse of the Russian economy with the Big Prize being a Western takeover of Russia’s oil and natural gas wealth, and by extension Central Asia’s. Ukrainians would be used as cannon fodder, as were Afghans since the 1980s Arab-Afghan jihad.

Yet the Obama administration overplayed its hand, and realpolitik now spells out the deepening of the Russia-China strategic partnership across the entire Eurasian land mass; Eurasia as a prospective, massive commercial emporium stretching from Beijing to Berlin, or from Shanghai to St. Petersburg and beyond towards Rotterdam and Duisburg.

Without the exceptionalist obsession of some key Beltway factions, none of the elements of Cold War 2.0 would be in play, as Russia is a natural ally of the US in many fronts. That in itself reveals the state of “strategic thinking” by the current US administration.

The lodge boasts of its Government Communications Headquarters heritage on its website.

A source close to Harding revealed: “The Mercurius Lodge is known as the Spies Lodge because it was set up by GCHQ and over the years many intelligence officers have become members.

“These are people trained to find out sensitive information and yet none of them had any idea of Keith’s background and past convictions.

US Launches New Assault Against Russia

If someone had the impression that the visit of Secretary of State John Kerry to the town of Sochi, followed by negotiations with Victoria Nuland, his deputy in Moscow, could be regarded as first steps in the direction of normalization of US-Russian relations, they would be deeply mistaken. In short, Washington, particularly the Obama administration, is trying to solve its problems at the expense or rather with the help of Russia, to ensure the victory of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming elections. However, the United States continues to apply pressure on Russia, using a variety of different strategies.

Proven: American vaccines cause permanent brain damage

New research on vaccines quality has been recently conducted. The American scientists proved that vaccines may lead to Vaccine-Induced Brain Damage Syndrome (VIBDS).
That is possible due to toxic additives that were found in the vaccines. Such components as aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, antibiotic drugs, etc lead to the permanent cognitive function suppression as well. Each of these ingredients is known as neurotoxin. Once the brain has been poisoned enough by one of these chemicals, that brain will fail to grasp the dangers present across all chemicals.

Opponents to Kiev’s security operation in eastern Ukraine protest in Zurich

About thirty demonstrators held a rally in Zurich, one of the biggest Swiss cities, on Saturday to protest against the Kiev-led security operation in eastern Ukraine. They included pacifists from Zurich, Luzern and other Swiss cities as well as German anti-fascists.
"Though the truce in Ukraine continues, peace has not come and regrettably is nowhere in sight. The Ukrainian side continues shelling the populated localities in Donbas; Western countries continue supporting the incumbent Ukrainian government with weapons and credits and are sending military instructors to Ukraine. The aim of this manifestation is to tell the truth about the real situation in Ukraine and give a rebuff to a barrage of misinformation spread by the local media," Maxim, one of the rally’s organizers, told TASS.
Protest actions against the Kiev authorities policy in Donbas have become regular in Switzerland.

Ukraine’s Ten saboteurs claim responsible for murder of LPR commander

Commander of the 4th police battalion of the self-proclaimed Lugansk People’s Republic (LPR) Alexei Mozgovoi was killed in a special mission of Ukraine’s Teni (Shadows) commandos, the detachment’s head Alexander Gladky said on Sunday.
Earlier, Mozgovoi had survived several attempts on his life. After the last attempt in late March, he said that it was a provocation aimed to destabilise the situation in the self-proclaimed republic.
In early April, the 4th battalion of territorial self-defence was set up on the basis of the Prizrak (Ghost) brigade, following a resolution on the LPR territorial defence signed by the republic’s leader Igor Plotnitsky on March 7, 2015.
Head of LPR Igor Plotnitsky said the murder was in the interests of Kiev, which, he said, instead of moving towards peace under the Minsk agreements, is trying to fail the political stability around the republics in Donbass.

Ole has spent at least 25 years investigating a multitude of conspiracies, and this area of history involves such an incredibly sinister agenda that it is now illegal in some European countries to question the official story or even attempt to investigate the facts. We discuss the sad fact that in the west, where we have a strong tradition of philosophizing and discussion, this story involves so much horror, misery and bloodshed that most will not even dare entertain the notion of a massive cover-up at play.

Section 215 of the Patriot Act can be used to collect any type of records whatsoever … including information on credit card purchases, medical records, library records, firearm sales records, financial information and a range of other sensitive subjects.

Many other government agencies track your credit card purchases as well. In fact, all U.S. intelligence agencies – including the CIA and NSA – are going to spy on Americans’ finances.

Heading Towards “Financial Maidan” in Ukraine? Inflation, Rampant Unemployment, Human Misery

Corruption is out-of-control. Grand theft is standard practice. Government, military and business officials are on the take. Lucrative schemes are created to plunder the state budget.

Ordinary Ukrainians suffer hugely. An billionaire oligarch class amassed enormous wealth – gotten the old-fashioned way by stealing it.

At the same time, millions of dollars are spent daily waging war on Donbass. Ukraine budgeted $5.4 billion for so-called defense and national security at a time it’s bankrupt and can’t pay creditors.

Proposal to extend ‘Patriot Act’ surveillance programs also blocked in Senate

Legislation to extend for two months a program in which spy agencies sweep up vast amounts of data about Americans’ telephone calls was blocked in the U.S. Senate early on Saturday, adding to uncertainty about the future of the program.

The Senate voted 45-54 on the procedural measure to stop debate on the extension of provisions of the “USA Patriot Act,” falling well short of the 60 votes in favor needed to advance the measure. The legal authorities that allow the collection of so-called telephone “metadata” expire on June 1.

Kansas Republicans Have Come Up with a Disgraceful New Way to Screw the Poor

Starting in July, a new law in Kansas will restrict the amount of cash a welfare recipient can take out of ATM's to just $25 a day—a move that critics say introduces a whole new host of financial burdens—including high ATM fees and travel costs—when they access cash.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if you let them get away with limiting access to cash because these are welfare recipients, then you open the door to letting them limit YOUR access to cash, for whatever reason they concoct, to protect the banks!

US torpedoes UN nuclear disarmament conference

After four weeks of negotiations at the United Nations on ways to improve compliance with the NPT, the United States announced on Friday that there was "no agreement" and accused Arab countries of torpedoing the nuclear disarmament negotiations.

The talks ended in failure after the US and its allies, Canada and Britain rejected a proposal made by Arab countries to establish a nuclear weapons-free zone in the Middle East by March 2016.

Israel, which is not a member of the NPT but attended the conference as an observer, also opposed the plan. The next treaty review conference is in 2020.

The US blamed Egypt and other Arab states for attempting to "cynically manipulate" the process by setting a deadline for Israel to meet within months on a Middle East zone free of such weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To me, it makes perfect sense that if one desires a nuclear-free middle east that one should start with the one nation that actually has such weapons. But apparently, Israel's puppet regime in Washington DC thinks the best way to have a nuclear-free middle east is to go on pretending there are not already nuclear weapons there!

Labour peer Lord Janner was re-appointed to a parliamentary committee last JUNE - despite being 'too ill' with dementia to be interviewed by police over child sex claims

Alleged paedophile Lord Janner was re-appointed to a parliamentary committee last June despite being 'too ill' with dementia to be interviewed by police, it was revealed today.

The Labour peer was put on Parliament's joint committee on consolidation bills - which considers how to combine complex acts - six months after detectives raided his home in London.

It was also three months after detectives searched his office at the House of Lords, during their investigation into allegations against him of sexually abusing boys, Exaro has found.

His appointment also came shortly after police sought advice from the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) because Janner's lawyers were claiming that he was in no state to be interviewed because of dementia.

Virginia Cop Resigns After Tasering and Pepper Spraying Man Having Medical Emergency

A Virginia cop who tasered a man sitting in the driver’s seat of his car, following it with a ten-second blast of pepper spray into the man’s face, was forced to resign last week after his chief said he had used excessive force.

But Fredericksburg police officer Shaun Jergens said he only did it because the man in the car was not complying.

However, David Washington was experiencing a medical emergency, perhaps a diabetic seizure, which is why he struck another vehicle before running over a median and knocking over a city sign.

When the car came to rest, the 34-year-old man remained motionless in his car with the seat belt strapping him in.

“Get out the car or I’m going to fucking smoke you,” Jergens yelled after tasering and pepper spraying him.

Police state government to start surveilling your poop in real time for illicit drug use… RFID tag readers in toilets will upload urine composition to the feds

The runaway surveillance state in America has just taken a leap into the gutter. Or the sewer, actually, where government goons running their fraudulent "war on drugs" have begun to monitor raw sewage for traces of illicit drug use.

The American Chemical Society reports this as GOOD news, saying:

The war on drugs could get a boost with a new method that analyzes sewage to track levels of illicit drug use in local communities in real time. The new study, a first-of-its-kind in the U.S., was published in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology and could help law enforcement identify new drug hot spots and monitor whether anti-drug measures are working.

True story behind Freedom Theatre's 'The Siege'

It seems nothing about Palestine ever escapes heated reactions, not least the Freedom Theatre’s latest production, The Siege. Conceived for a UK tour, the first in Britain by this dynamic theatre company from Jenin, it premiered in Manchester before opening in London on May 19th. In front of the venue, the Battersea Arts Centre, theatregoers were greeted by a Zionist group demonstrating and leafleting against the play. Yet again, the basic right of Palestinian freedom is threatened.

The Siege is based on the true story of Palestinian resistance fighters who sought refuge in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem during the Second Intifada, in 2002. Alongside five armed fighters, one of whom is badly injured, are some 200 priests, nuns and civilians, clearly not seen in the play but represented by a priest who agrees to shelter and initially feed them.

Palestine to chair UNESCO meeting

Palestine was elected to chair the third Meeting of States Parties to the UNESCO 1970 Convention on Illicit Trafficking of Cultural Property for the first time earlier this week.

Palestine became the 195th full member of UNESCO in 2011 with the support of a large majority of countries.

Chairing a meeting of nearly 130 state parties has "both symbolic and practical" significance for Palestine, Mounir Anastas, deputy ambassador of Palestine to UNESCO, told the Anadolu Agency.

Moldova: Israeli Oligarch stole $1 billion

I am glad to learn that 3.5 million Moldovans have been taken to cleaners by an Israeli-born young Jewish billionaire Ilan Shor, 28.

On Monday, a Moldovan court rejected the appeal by Ilan Shor against his earlier sentence of house arrest. Last year, he was accused of stealing nearly $1 billion, or 12 percent of Moldova’s GDP. His house arrest began only last week.

Pity, had he ripped Americans of $1 billion, he would be enjoying a beautiful ‘retirement’ in sunny Tel Aviv, home to 280 Jewish brothels.

Last November, a post appeared on the blogging platform Medium which claimed that between March 1, 2014 and August 31, 2014 - a period of six months - some 80 employees of London's Metropolitan Police had "travelled to Israel."

This overlaps in part with Israel's unprecedented assault on the Gaza Strip, which lasted from July 8 to August 26. During 'Operation Protective Edge', Israeli armed forces killed some 2,100 Palestinians, including more than 500 children.

On May 8 2015 I awoke to discover that not only were we not looking forward to a new coalition government in the UK, but that the overall collapse of the Liberal Democrats and the Labour Party had given the Conservative government a mandate. At an individual level I’m likely to see some benefits from the strong neo-liberalism that underpins this government’s ideology, but I’m concerned about a further deepening of the division between those who have and those who have not.

Bird flu is hitting an unprecedented number of CAFO lot chickens right now, but the situation is being reported in the mainstream media as a mystery. Why are backyard flocks escaping the virulent bird flu that’s wiping out millions of caged birds in biosecure metal buildings? Is it because birds raised in fresh air and sunshine are more capable of fighting off viruses? If that was true then why are the wild waterfowl: ducks and geese, etc., catching the deadly flu?

VETERANS' DAY - WALTER LEWIS SMITH

Here is one veteran; not a glyph on a wall, but a man with a name, a face, and a history. To his friends and family he was a real human being, even though to the War Department he was just another statistic.

But as I think back on him, I know for a fact that he and the millions of others who served in all the various wars the United States became entangled in would be shocked and saddened to see that the government for which they sacrificed so much has become the very embodiment of all that they fought so hard against. No more First Amendment, warrantless spying on Americans, show trials, confessions extracted by torture, workers looted to enrich Wall Street criminals, protesters beaten and shot; for this Walter gave up a lung?
