What Will You Do When You Can No Longer Buy Or Sell Without Submitting To Biometric Identification?

In some areas of the world, payment systems that require palm scanning or face scanning are already being tested. We have entered an era where biometric security is being hailed as the “solution” to the antiquated security methods of the past. We are being promised that the constant problems that hackers are causing with our credit cards, bank accounts, ATM machines and Internet passwords will all go away once we switch over to biometric identification. And without a doubt, we have some massive security problems that need to be addressed. But do you really want a machine to read your face or your hand before you are able to buy anything, sell anything or log on to the Internet? Do you really want “the system” to be able to know where you are, what you are buying and what you are doing at virtually all times? Biometric security systems are being promoted as “cool” and “cutting edge”, but there is also potentially a very dark side to them that should not be ignored.

The Untouchables: You Can't Sue General Mills if You "Like" Their Products on Facebook

Are your Lucky Charms less than magically delicious? Are your Cheerios less than cheery? Perhaps you broke off a tooth when there was something extra crunchy in your Cinnamon Toast Crunch or became totally ill from something totally disgusting in your bowl of Total. If so, I hope you didn't "like" them on Facebook.

General Mills has taken "CYA" (Cover Your A**) to an entirely new level.

If you "like" one of their products on Facebook or download coupons from them, their new terms of use state that you can no longer take them to court for any reason. Here is the new clause, straight from the horses...ahem...mouth.

Iran nuclear deal on track as country slashes highly- enriched uranium by 75% ahead of schedule UN watchdog has reveals

Iran has slashed its nuclear stockpile by almost 75 percent the International Atomic Energy Committee has confirmed.

The IAEA has spent the past six months investigating whether the Tehran regime has complied with its international obligations.

In a report to the United Nations, the IAEA has confirmed that Iran halted aspects of its nuclear programme on January 20 opening the possibility of the easing of international sanctions.

As a result of Iran's compliance with the international agreement it is now possible for Tehran to access foreign currency reserves frozen since the dispute arose.

The IAEA confirmed that Iran has diluted half of its higher-grade enriched uranium reserve to a level that cannot be used to make a nuclear bomb.

Russia and West reach surprise deal on Ukraine crisis

Vladimir Putin has secured key concessions from Ukraine and its Western supporters as the Kremlin was offered a central role in determining the future of its neighbour and former client state.

Four-way talks in Geneva involving Kiev and Moscow, alongside the US and EU, called for steps to end the occupation of eastern cities by pro-Russian sympathisers.

If the agreement holds, a monitoring mission of the Organisation of Security and Co-operation in Europe would oversee the handover of occupied government buildings by protesters in return for an amnesty for anyone not facing capital crimes.

Ukraine’s interim government in turn agreed to accept future talks on far-reaching constitutional reform that would grant the Russian-speaking east the extensive autonomy demanded by the Kremlin.

Why “anti-vaxxers” need to be more vocal about their decision

Many doctors, major news outlets, governmental organizations, and many everyday people say that vaccines are safe, effective, and have saved millions of lives. But this proposition does not become true through repetition. And the assertion of an “authority” cannot substitute for factual information to support this conclusion. Through discussing this topic with doctors and others, and researching the way that the vaccine industry works, I have found that people who believe vaccines are 100% safe and effective are either unaware of all of the evidence to the contrary or they are ignoring the evidence for one reason or another.

18 Stats That Prove That Government Dependence Has Reached Epidemic Levels

Did you know that the number of Americans getting benefits from the federal government each month exceeds the number of full-time workers in the private sector by more than 60 million? In other words, the number of people that are taking money out of the system is far greater than the number of people that are putting money into the system. And did you know that nearly 70 percent of all of the money that the federal government spends goes toward entitlement and welfare programs? When it comes to the transfer of wealth, nobody does it on a grander scale than the U.S. government. Most of what the government does involves taking money from some people and giving it to other people. In fact, at this point that is the primary function of the federal government.

Monsanto and Big Food Losing the GMO and "Natural" Food Fight

After 20 years of battling Monsanto and corporate agribusiness, food and farm activists in Vermont, backed by a growing Movement across the country, are on the verge of a monumental victory—mandatory labels on genetically engineered foods and a ban on the routine industry practice of labeling GMO-tainted foods as “natural.”

On April 16, 2014, the Vermont Senate passed H.112 by a vote of 28-2, following up on the passage of a similar bill in the Vermont House last year. The legislation, which requires all GMO foods sold in Vermont to be labeled by July 1, 2016, will now pass through a House/Senate conference committee before landing on Governor Peter Shumlin’s desk, for final approval.

FLASHBACK 2013 - Lawmakers, Utah sheriffs want to rein in renegade BLM, Forest Service officers

Multiple rural county sheriffs from Utah testified Thursday about the abusive use of police power by Bureau of Land Management rangers or forest protection officers with the U.S. Forest Service.

They are asserting it is time to rein in the authority the agencies should have never been allowed to exercise.

Sheriffs from San Juan, Kane and Garfield counties spoke in favor of HB155, sponsored by Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab, which proposes to limit BLM rangers and forest protection officers from exercising police power over state and local laws unless someone's safety is at risk or federal contracts are in place with local police agencies.

There’s an outside chance Lerner could go to jail, but it’s unlikely, given that GOP leadership isn’t doing much about anything.

Deal reached on calming Ukraine tensions

Top diplomats from the United States, European Union, Russia and Ukraine reached agreement after marathon talks Thursday on immediate steps to ease the crisis in Ukraine.

Reached after seven hours of negotiation, the agreement does not set out specific directions for Ukraine's future, but it requires all sides to halt any violence, intimidation or provocative actions. It calls for the disarming of all illegally armed groups and for control of buildings seized by pro-Russian separatists to be turned back to authorities.

The agreement puts on hold — for now at least — additional economic sanctions the West had prepared to impose on Russia if the talks were fruitless. That will ease international pressure both on Moscow and nervous European Union nations that depend on Russia for their energy.

GM seeks to squelch lawsuits stemming from ignition defect

General Motors says it will soon file a motion with a federal bankruptcy judge in New York seeking a court order preventing the families of accident victims from suing the company over defective ignition switches that have been tied to fatal crashes.

As part of the 2009 bankruptcy and restructuring of GM the Obama administration inserted a clause holding the reorganized company harmless from lawsuits stemming from before July 2009. Many of the deaths and injuries resulting from the faulty ignition switches installed on several 2003-2007 GM models, which have now been recalled, took place prior to 2009. At the time, GM was facing 2,500 lawsuits of various kinds. Most received pennies on the dollar.

BLM Honcho: “It’s not MY job- but I can sure doubletalk”

This past week the nation got a glimpse of the leadership for the Wild Horse and Burro Program within the Department of Interior (DOI). NBC aired a Today program, “ Wild, but not Free,” in which Joan Guilfoyle, the Chief, responded to questions presented by journalist, Lisa Myers of NBC.

In discussion Joan Guilfoyle lauded the Bureau of Land Management within the DOI for its “balanced multiple use approach” which includes recreation, livestock, mining, wildlife, and wild horses and burros. She failed to tell the nation up to 2.9 M livestock are on BLM public lands compared to 32,000 wild horses. She failed to tell the nation 70,000 bighorn (a species of concern), 700,000 pronghorn, 1 M elk, and 20 M deer, all wildlife, are on the BLM public lands compared to 32,000 wild horses. Ms. Guilfoyle says the wild horses are overpopulated. There should only be 23,000 on our public lands. You tell me, “Is this a “balanced multiple use approach?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, rather than actually manage the land, the BLM simply takers it, then rents it back to the ranchers.

Attempts by democratic governments to ban books rarely work out well.

This brings us to the issue of collateral. We've borrowed so much money the lenders are getting nervous.

This caused several other nations to demand the same and President Nixon had to slam the gold window closed or the treasury would have been emptied, since the United States was even then in debt for more money than the treasury could cover in gold.

Obama gave an interview to Major Garrett of CBS News, who asked a series of provocative questions suggesting that the White House should step up its campaign of economic warfare against Russia. Before the interview, the White House announced that a new round of economic sanctions had been “prepared” for use against Russia if there was no progress in resolving the crisis in Ukraine.

Nick Kollerstrom on WWI & WWII revisionism, Academic Freedom Conference (audio)

Just as leading American conservative Pat Buchanan calls World War II “The Unnecessary War,” Nick Kollerstrom argues that World War I was also avoidable: “A single sentence and the war in the West would not have taken place.”

The two World Wars of the 20th century killed about 100 million people – more than half of them civilians. The leaders who blundered into these wars – from both sides – merit our revulsion as the worst botchers and butchers in human history. We must tear down the statues, desecrate the idols, and profane the sacred myths peddling the Big Lie that there was anything heroic about these two hideous festivals of mass carnage.

Bottom line: War is a Racket and All Wars Are Bankers’ Wars.

Germany has no alternative to Russian gas

Germany faces a renewed debate on energy in the wake of the ongoing Ukraine crisis. To a large extent, the country depends on Russian oil and natural gas imports. Just recently Chancellor Angela Merkel made it clear that “all of Germany’s energy policies must be reconsidered.” According to Germany’s Energy Balances Group (AGEB), imported rose to 71 percent of all sources of energy last year.

The most important energy supplier is Russia: It provides 38 percent of Germany’s natural gas imports, 35 percent of all oil imports and 25 percent of coal imports, covering a quarter of the country’s entire energy needs. There are no suitable alternatives in sight that could cover shortfalls of this magnitude.

Two More Victims Of The Retail Apocalypse: Family Dollar And Coldwater Creek

Did you know that Family Dollar is closing 370 stores? When I learned of this, I was quite stunned. I knew that retailers that serve the middle class were really struggling right now, but I had no idea that things had gotten so bad for low end stores like Family Dollar. In the post-2008 era, dollar stores had generally been one of the few bright spots in the retail industry. As millions of Americans fell out of the middle class, they were looking to stretch their family budgets as far as possible, and dollar stores helped them do that. It would be great if we could say that the reason why Family Dollar is doing so poorly is because average Americans have more money now and have resumed shopping at retailers that target the middle class, but that is not happening. Rather, as you will see later in this article, things just continue to get even worse for Americans at the low end of the income scale.

Ebola Outbreak Updates: Virus Caused by New Strain, a Look Inside an Isolation Ward, and How the Virus Spreads

The Ebola virus that has killed more than 120 people so far this year in West Africa is a new strain, scientists say.

This is evidence that the disease did not spread from outbreaks in other regions of the country.

Ebola virus carries a fatality rate of 30 to 90%, depending on the strain. This particular outbreak caused death in 86% of confirmed cases (12 out of 14 patients died).

US caught in own web of lies

America has found itself in an untenable situation in the Ukraine. As the second day of military incursions by the coup backed Kiev government proceed in the East, the Obama administration has begun to realize that it has been “blindsided.”

A presidential candidate is beaten in the streets by neo-Nazi thugs and nothing is done. A government responsible for murdering over 100 of the protestors that backed their takeover is now moving military forces across their country to attack the “babushkas resistance,” the heart of the resistance to the Kiev cabal, led by Russian speaking grandmothers.

The US position is clearly unsound and if violence unfolds as Kiev intends despite stories of its forces switching sides, the Obama administration will be severely weakened.

GMO cotton seeds made by Monsanto collaborator banned in Indian state after crops fail

Genetically modified (GM) Bt cotton produced by Maharashtra Hybrid Seeds Company (Mahyco), a collaborator with international biotech kingpin Monsanto, has officially been banned from the Indian state of Karnataka, a major cotton-producing region of India, after the heavily hyped transgenic crop failed to deliver on both pest resistance and yields.

Hailed by Mahyco as the answer to higher yields and improved pest resistance, the crop turned out to be a complete dud, leading to about 54,000 hectares', or around 133,000 acres', worth of failed cotton crops. For the farmers who planted all this fake cotton, this translates into a financial loss of 230 crore rupees, or the U.S. equivalent of nearly $38.1 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Many of the farmers who lost their farms to this mandated cotton experiment committed suicide as a result.

Snowden made a video-link appearance during Putin's marathon televised question and answer session to ask the president about Russia's attitude to mass surveillance.

Snowden asked: "Does Russia intercept or store or analyse the communication of millions of individuals?" He went on to ask whether increasing the effectiveness of internal security systems could ever justify such actions.

To applause from the studio audience, Putin responded: "Mr Snowden you are a former agent, a spy, I used to work for a intelligence service, we are going to talk the same language."

WASHINGTON, April 13, 2014 — One thing Harry Reid does well is live up to his moniker, “Dirty Harry.” On his side of the Democrat wing of the organized crime family in Washington, Reid has few equals as a world class bag man.

It may be pure coincidence that the army of heavily armed agents of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) are now pulling back from their positions encircling Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s family ranch, North of Las Vegas. But it’s doubtful. It may have everything to do with a new round of intense scrutiny of Reid’s use of influence to reward family members and campaign donors in lucrative development deals across the state.

What amount would be fair and why?”

The following Bradley Award-losing essay submission likely inflamed the judges of the prize; rather than focusing on taxes and wealth merely in relation to the economy – the obsession of nearly all news media reports and academic literature - it instead focuses on taxes and wealth in relation to ethics, equity, and ecology.

On the list of features that you’d rather your tablet computer didn’t offer you, ‘involuntary electrocution’ is probably pretty high up the list. Nokia obviously skimped on their market research, as it turns out that its a problem currently affecting the Lumia 2520.

The tablet has been taken off sale in Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Russia, Switzerland and the UK, and owners are being encouraged not to charge it, as this has the risk of leading to an electric shock. US owners are urged not to use travel adapters for the sam reason.

The AC-300 charger is only used for the Nokia Lumia 2520, so owners of other devices needn’t worry. It turns out that a fault in the plastic casing can lead to the exposure of internal components which, if touched whilst live, can have some rather shocking results (sorry).

Court Declares That, Yes, Bloggers Are Media

...it is hard to dispute that the advent of the internet as a medium and the emergence of the blog as a means of free dissemination of news and public comment have been transformative. By some accounts, there are in the range of 300 million blogs worldwide. The variety and quality of these are such that the word “blog” itself is an evolving term and concept. The impact of blogs has been so great that even terms traditionally well defined and understood in journalism are changing as journalists increasingly employ the tools and techniques of bloggers – and vice versa. In employing the word “blog,” we consider a site operated by a single individual or a small group that has primarily an informational purpose, most commonly in an area of special interest, knowledge or expertise of the blogger, and which usually provides for public impact or feedback.

Unsettling video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen

A new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous gathering of al Qaeda in years. And the CIA and the Pentagon either didn't know about it or couldn't get a drone there in time to strike.

U.S. officials won't comment on that, but every frame of the video is now being analyzed by the United States.

In the middle of the clip, the man known as al Qaeda's crown prince, Nasir al-Wuhayshi, appears brazenly out in the open, greeting followers in Yemen. Al-Wuhayshi, the No. 2 leader of al Qaeda globally and the head of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, has said he wants to attack the United States. But in the video, he looks unconcerned that he could be hit by an American drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Probably because, like Osama Bin (Tim Osman) Laden himself, he actually works for the CIA. With all the "Wag The Al Qaeda" we are getting ahead of some new false-flag, this video is likely as fake as every Osama video since the real one died in 2001. But were this video real, then the message it sends out clearly to the world is that the NSA cannot find and track real terrorists, and its mission is totally about spying on law abiding people, to steal their business secrets, peek through webcams at young girls in their bedrooms, and so forth, all of it a violation of the Fourth Amendment and other laws.

So, if this video is real, and these people really Al Qaeda terrorists (and if you believe that one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you) then this means the NSA spy system is a total and costly failure that should be scrapped right now.

New IRS documents: Lerner colluded with DOJ to prosecute conservative groups

On Wednesday, the day after what's commonly called "Tax Day" each April 15, members of the House of Representatives announced that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) released documents that appear to describe a conspiracy by the IRS and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to "railroad" conservative organizations that posed a threat to the re-election of President Barack Obama and to his political agenda.

How it Was Done: 9/11 and the Science of Building Demolition

As public awareness grows about the truth about 9/11, it serves to point out that many features of the towers' destruction fit perfectly with standard patterns of demolition. Evidence which at first seems puzzling is in fact consistent with known demolition techniques.

WTC 7 differed from Towers One and Two in that WTC7 was a traditional "bottom-up" implosion. The Twin Towers, on the other hand, exhibited the more unfamiliar pattern of a "banana peel" demolition, which starts at the middle or the top of a building and progresses downward. The below demolition in China shows the pattern of streamers of arcing debris that we see coming from the Twin Towers, as the cutting of supports begins high above ground level and works its way down.

BLM declares Texas is Oklahoma land

The BLM wont be around much longer I think! Don't mess with Texas!

While the world watched, these cowboys sat ready to defend their way of life against more than 200 heavily armed federal agents and snipers hiding in the hills. The agents were sent by Harry Reid’s former senior advisor, 35 year old Neil Kornze, to confiscate open range cattle from the last rancher in Clark County, Nevada

Feds Provoke Range War Over Fees And A Turtle

Gopherus agassizii is the binomial name given to the desert tortoise, a roughly foot-long creature with a lifespan that can stretch to more than half-a-century. This turtle inhabits the Mojave Desert in America’s great southwest. On paper, the desert tortoise seems an innocuous amphibian; however, it has the curious attribute of being able provoke nearly open warfare between U.S. citizens and the federal government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article completely misses the point.

The Bundy family purchased all of that land back in 1887, and lived on and maintained it continuously since. Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 of the Constitution, known as the Enclave Clause, limits Federal Ownership of land only to land underneath Federal Buildings and military facilities. Back in the 1930s, the BLM simply confiscated most of the Bundy land, a violation not only of the Enclave Clause but of the Fifth Amendment, which states that the government cannot take private property without just compensation, and of the Homestead Act, which says the land belongs to those who live on it and maintain it. The BLM then charged the Bundy family grazing fees to graze their cattle on what had been their land.

Then in 1993, the BLM changed the deal, demanding the grazing fees but severely restricting the number of cattle the Bundys could graze on the land, officially to protect that turtle. But we know that was a ruse, as the BLM itself has been killing those same turtles due to lack of conservation funding. It was at that point that Cliven Bundy took the case to court, where it has languished for decades.

The severe restrictions on cattle grazing would have driven the Bundys out of business and forced them off of their ranch, which appears to be the real agenda here, as all of the Bundy neighbors have already been driven off of their ranches by BLM "tinkering" and Bundy is the last one left.

There are several motives at work here.

First there is the BLM itself, which wants to lease out fracking contracts and not share the money with the land's rightful owners.

There is also gold on that land and Glencore Xstrata, the company founded by financier Marc Rich (who was strangely pardoned by President Bill Clinton before he went to trial for illegal financial dealings), is already in negotiations for the mining rights, not with the Bundy family. but with the cash-strapped US Government.

One of Harry Reid's top (illegal) donors, Harry Whittemore, has plans to commercially develop that land, and the US Government has already announced a new exit from the nearby highway to serve that project.

And yet another finger in the Bundy's stolen pie is Rory Reid, Harry Reid's son, who is representing ENN Energy Group to obtain some of that land for a solar power project.

And this guy thinks it is all about turtles?!?

World War O

When George W. Bush unleashed unnecessary wars of aggression on Iraq and elsewhere, many writers dubbed it “World War W“.

Now, Obama is close to intentionally or unintentionally unleashing “World War O”.

Bush’s lying his way into an Iraq war and then using torture to try to justify it were war crimes.

But Iraq was a third-rate army … while Russia has nuclear weapons. Even if such weapons of mass destruction are not unleashed, there could still be an unintentional nuclear catastrophe.

And China may not sit idly by while its close ally – and economic partner – is challenged.

World War O would be bad indeed.

Social Security stops trying to collect on old debts by seizing tax refunds

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old.

The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to the Social Security agency. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century.

Looks like the armed push-back at the Bundy Ranch is already bearing fruit in other sectors of the government!

Russia Rejects GMOs, Will Grow Organic Food Instead

Russia will not import GMO products, the country’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said, adding that the nation has enough space and resources to produce organic food.

Moscow has no reason to encourage the production of genetically modified products or import them into the country, Medvedev told a congress of deputies from rural settlements on Saturday.

“If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic food,” he said.

Ukraine, Through the US Looking Glass

As the post-coup regime in Ukraine sends troops and paramilitaries to crack down on ethnic Russian protesters in the east, the U.S. news media continues to feed the American public a steady dose of anti-Russian propaganda, often wrapped in accusations of “Russian propaganda”.

The acting president of the coup regime in Kiev announces that he is ordering an “anti-terrorist” operation against pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine, while his national security chief says he has dispatched right-wing ultranationalist fighters who spearheaded the Feb. 22 coup that ousted elected President Viktor Yanukovych.

Vilifying Putin’s Russia

The re-integration of Crimea into the Russian Federation has been an unexpected bonanza for reporters and analysts in the mainstream Anglo-American news media. It has been a field day for the commentariat in particular, who are enviably free from the constraints of neutrality and objectivity. The Russian action in Crimea has gifted them with a pretext for seizing the moral high ground and proclaiming the superiority of Western political values and institutions. The post-Soviet world order is one in which the US-EU axis has repeatedly flouted international law with impunity.

Armed fed raid prompted by safety rules

Critics of the way federal agencies in Montana handled a recent raid on a company that recycles brass for ammunition are calling for an investigation.

Government officials have declined to respond to allegations that armed officers with weapons drawn locked up USA Brass employees, confiscated their cell phones and otherwise violated their rights.

The incident in Bozeman, Mont., drew little attention from media.

To protect against lead contamination, USA Brass had installed filters and added training. The company had passed a subsequent inspection before officers from the Environmental Protection Agency and FBI arrived, apparently with guns drawn.

The story has spread on the Internet among bloggers and Second Amendment advocates. A blog called Defensive Handguns described the raid this way: “Obama’s storm troopers raided USA Brass in Bozeman.”

The REAL Truth Behind Bundy Ranch Land-Grab in Nevada

Connections behind the tense situation in Clark County, Nevada regarding the aggressive seizure of cattle from Cliven Bundy, a private rancher who used public land for grazing purposes appears to have a direct pathway beyond Senator Majority Leader Harry Reid; involving the Obama administration and international projects directed under Agenda 21 initiatives.

Media reports state that in March, Reid applied “pressure [to] Nevada’s largest power company, NV Energy, to sign up as [ENN Energy Group’s] first customer.”

This deal with ENN and Reid is worth $5 billion for a “solar farm and panel manufacturing plant [to be constructed] in the southern Nevada desert.”
