Monsanto/FDA: 2 crime families, trillion-dollar hustle

Quoted in the New York Times Magazine (October 25, 1998, “Playing God in the Garden”), Philip Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications, famously stated: “Monsanto shouldn’t have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the FDA’s job.”

From the Federal Register, Volume 57, No.104, “Statement of [FDA] Policy: Foods Derived from New Plant Varieties,” here is what the FDA had to say on this matter: “Ultimately, it is the food producer who is responsible for assuring safety.”

The direct and irreconcilable clash of these two statements is no accident. It’s not a sign of incompetence or sloppy work or a mistake or a miscommunication. It’s a clear signal that the fix was in.

Heartrending Gaza: Reporter breaks into tears live on air (VIDEO)

A reporter for Al Jazeera news channel broke into tears halfway through a television broadcast while relaying the horrific scenes and destruction he witnessed following over two weeks of Israeli shelling in Gaza.

The correspondent, who had just returned from Gaza's Shejaia neighborhood – which came under heavy Israeli bombardment on Sunday, leaving dozens dead – began speaking about what he and his TV crew witnessed. He stated that his team saw a lot of bodies, adding that the crew was in a state of shock.

However, as he was describing the “laying bodies,” he broke into tears. He tried to compose himself and continue, but subsequently walked off screen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be why Israel opened fire on Al Jazeera's Gaza office.

UN Security Council Demands Investigation Into Downed Malaysia Airlines Flight

The 15-member UN body, whose five permanent members are China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States, also demanded that armed groups controlling the crash site of flight MH17:

"refrain from any actions that may compromise the integrity of the crash site, including by refraining from destroying, moving or disturbing wreckage, equipment, debris, personal belongings, or remains, and immediately provide safe, secure, full and unrestricted access to the site…"

Establishment media criticizes Ron Paul for failing to attack Russia

“Normally the Texas Straight Talk column deals with libertarian issues such as Paul’s longstanding criticism of the Federal Reserve. But Sunday’s piece on the Ukraine, ostensibly about why the United States should stay out of the affairs of others, may prove problematic for his son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul,”

writes Kevin G. Hall.

Mr. Hall’s remark reveals a surprising ignorance of libertarianism. The political philosophy emphasizes building positive relationships based of free trade and mutual consent and avoids negative relationships predicated on military interventionism and violence.

NY Fed Slams Deutsche Bank (And Its €55 Trillion In Derivatives): Accuses It Of "Significant Operational Risk"

First it was French BNP that was punished with a $9 billion legal fee after France refused to cancel the Mistral warship shipment to Russia (which promptly led to French National Bank head Christian Noyer to warn that the days of the USD as a reserve currency are numbered), and now moments ago, none other than the 150x-levered NY Fed tapped Angela Merkel on the shoulder with a polite reminder to vote "Yes" on the next, "Level-3" round of Russia sanctions when it revealed, via the WSJ, that "Deutsche Bank's giant U.S. operations suffer from a litany of serious problems, including shoddy financial reporting, inadequate auditing and oversight and weak technology systems."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the pot calling the kettle black, in light of Wall Street's $90 trillion derivatives exposure. Of course, this may just be trying to lay the blame for the coming crash in Europe's banks.

Flight MH-17 Black Boxes To Be Analyzed In "Impartial" London

The Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: Financial Warfare against Russia, Multibillion Dollar Bonanza for Wall Street

While the mainstream media casually accuses Moscow without evidence of having orchestrated the shoot down of Malaysian Airlines MH17 in liaison with the Donesk rebels, the backlash of the crisis on international financial markets and on Russia’s financial system has passed virtually unnoticed.

Moreover, the political threats and insinuations directed against the Russian Federation in the wake of the July 17 disaster, have been coupled with a renewed wave of economic sanctions directed against major Russian corporations and financial institutions.

MH-17 crash issue

There are a lot of lies about the flight MH17 killing.

1) If You compare the traces of MH17 for the last three days, you will find it was shifted for 100km to the north by Ukrainian air control service right to the was zone. Why they do that?

2) Rebels has no weapons to hit a Boeing-777 because it flies too high and too fast. Rebels has only few “SA-18 Grouse”, which can go up to 5 km only! UA knew that so they didn’t close that area for big altitudes flights. To launch a “SA-18 Grouse” the target MUST be visible, but there were heavy clouds at that area, so “SA-18 Grouse” could not be launched at B-777 even for a try.

3) Rebels (and nobody else) can’t confuse Boeing-777 with An-26. The “Antonov An-26? is not a jet plane, it has two engines with propellers. It is significantly smaller than a B-777, it has a speed 540 km/h, and cannot fly higher than 7300 m. It’s impossible to confuse a B-777 that flies at 10,000m with a speed 900 km/h with An-26!

Where are the *&%#$*@ sanctions against Israel for the genocide happening in Gaza? How come Israel can murder whoever they want?

Israel has murdered over 600 people in a few days time but I am not hearing the U.S., EU or anyone else calling for sanctions against them.

Remember Syria? The lies of a chemical attack last year? Remember how the U.S. and the world were outraged? BUT Israel can get away with $%^&*# murdering everyone they want... and #$%^&*@ Silence from every government!

Israel is not the chosen country of the world in God's eyes. The Jews are not the chosen people of the world in Gods eyes. We All are chosen people, including the Palestinians! They have the right to live their lives in Freedom and liberty without being massacred by Israel!

Enough is enough! If Russia was doing to East Ukraine what Israel is doing to Gaza we would be in WW3 with the U.S. and EU bombing Russia. Yet Israel can do as they please and murder who ever they please.

Israel-Gaza conflict: Air Canada cancels Tel Aviv flight over safety concerns

Air Canada has cancelled its scheduled flight to Tel Aviv from Toronto tonight, following the lead of other airlines concerned about rocket fire near Ben Gurion Airport.

U.S. flight ban could be Hamas' biggest success in latest clash with Israel

The Federal Aviation Administration on Tuesday barred U.S. airliners from traveling to and from Israel for at least 24 hours, in the wake of now-confirmed reports saying a rocket landed near Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion airport, the country's only international airport.

Several airlines already had suspended operations or diverted flights.

The ban comes less than a week after a Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 was shot down over Ukraine. For Hamas, it could be the biggest break the Islamist group has had since the most recent fighting started -- potentially increasing Israeli's physical and psychological isolation from the rest of the world. The airport handles about 14 million travelers a year.

Obamacare hit by ruling, but subsidies to continue

President Barack Obama's health care law is enmeshed in another big legal battle after two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.

A divided court panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people pay their premiums, saying financial aid can be paid only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.

About 100 miles to the south in Richmond, Virginia, another appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing consumers in all 50 states to purchase subsidized coverage.

The White House immediately declared that policyholders will keep getting financial aid as the administration sorts out the legal implications.

Yet Suliman said that these warnings are disingenuous, and in Gaza — a cramped home to nearly 2 million people — there’s a cruel irony in this advice to evacuate: there’s hardly anywhere safe to go.

“This is a tactic to tell the world that the IDF cares about civilian lives so that when they kill civilians they can say, ‘We warned people, they didn’t leave, Hamas is using them as shields.’ This is completely ridiculous,” Suliman said. “They are saying, ‘We want the residents of the northern Gaza districts to leave their houses,’ but 250,000 people live in the northern Gaza districts. They are telling a quarter of a million people to leave their houses.”

“That’s laughable. Where are they going to go?”

Clashes between Libyan army troops and anti-government militia groups in the eastern city of Benghazi have left 16 people dead and 81 injured.

“Most of the dead and injured are soldiers. Three civilians, including an Egyptian, were killed when a rocket hit their house,” AFP quoted a hospital source as saying.

Fighting broke out on Monday, when militants attacked an army base and clashed with government troops and forces loyal to retired General Khalifa Haftar. Haftar launched a military offensive in the country’s east on May 16, saying that he wants to crush the militants and “establish stability in Libya.”

Emergency Action: Artists Against the War - rally at Rabin Square, Tel Aviv, Tue. July 22,2014

War is bad. We didn’t come into this world to kill one another.
We believe that civic and political equality should reign from the Mediterranean to the Jordan river. We believe in the shared and beautiful life of jews and arabs, Israelis and Palestinians, we believe that there is a peaceful solution to the terrible war being waged right now, and we disparagingly kick at the nationalist militaristic propaganda being touted at the Israeli public.
We are against missiles, tanks, cannons, and rockets from Israel and Gaza, and against violence from any direction aimed at any religion, gender, race, or color.
There is an opposition in Israel. The occupation of the Palestinian people must end. Peace talks must start. The State of Israel must change immediately!

We will meet on Tuesday, July 22nd, at 8:00pm at Rabin Square, Tel-Aviv

600 deaths in Israeli Gaza op: Military hits mosques, stadium, homes, hospital

Israel kept up attacks on Gaza on Tuesday, killing three Palestinians and hitting over 70 targets, including five mosques, a sports stadium and the home of the deceased Hamas military chief.

The latest casualties in the fortnight-long violence have brought the Palestinian death toll to 570, according to AP. Almost 100 of them are children and many others are civilians.

A United Nations school which is helping to shelter displaced Palestinians in the center of Gaza also came under attack from Israeli fire as a team was inspecting damage from the day before, a UN official said.

The official mentioned that a team, who had been given permission by Israel to enter, were at the school, which is run by the UN in Al-Maghazi, when Israeli tanks resumed their shelling and hit the building.

The City of New York approved a proposal by one of the largest real estate developers in the city to build in a 'poor door', or a separate door for residents living in affordable housing to enter their building.

According to a Saturday report from the New York Post, the city approved the application of Extell, one of the most prominent developers in New York, to install this separate set of doors into a high-rise located on 40 Riverside Boulevard, a location situated next to the Hudson River.

Extell's proposal allows them to force affordable housing tenants to walk through an entrance located in a back alley behind the building to enter, leaving the more prominent front entrance for tenants paying for nicer apartments.

Ron Paul Rewind: Israel Encouraged Growth of Hamas

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ron Paul is, as usual, correct.

Israel loves to play this little game of "who do we talk to" to avoid peace talks. When Yasser Arafat united Palestine under the PLO, Israel's Shin Bet created and funded HAMAS as "controlled opposition, so that Israel could say, "We don't know who to have peace talks with, PLO or HAMAS." Then Yasser Arafat was assassinated and PLO collapsed, and HAMAS found itself the de facto Palestinian government, and following their election win in 2006, the legitimate one. So they started to act like a government, trying to take care of the Palestinians. So Israel set up FATAH as controlled opposition, so they could again play the game of "who do we talk to" and say "We don't know who to have peace talks with, HAMAS or FATAH." That is why when HAMAS and FATAH formed a unity government, Netanyahu went ballistic, because he could not avoid peace talks any longer. And because Netanyahu does not want peace with Palestine, he wants Palestine itself, he launched a war on Gaza.

Explosive new book claims Bill Clinton's phone sex calls were intercepted by Israel, Russia and the UK and used in a 'blackmail' attempt by Israeli Prime Minister

According to a new blockbuster book, tapes of Bill Clinton’s steamy phone sex with Monica Lewinsky posed a threat to national security and resulted in a not-so-subtle ‘blackmail’ attempt by the Prime Minister of Israel, who used the torrid exchanges to try to ‘convince’ the President to secure the release of an American spying for the Israelis.

The book, Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine by Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper, has been described as 'scrupulously researched' and 'juicy'.

The contents of this latest tome about the ultimate power couple have been widely leaked and have already been the subject of numerous news reports.

Halper reports evidence that not only the Israelis but also the British and Russians had ‘scooped up’ the microwaves off the top of the White House and taped Clinton's phone sex conversations with Monica – and perhaps other women.

So what was the point of David Cameron’s supposedly dramatic cabinet reshuffle last week? Forget the idea that it was about advancing women over the “pale, male, and stale”.

The “catwalk” of promoted women ministers outside 10 Downing Street was pretty degrading, and the gender balance of the cabinet has only changed marginally.

Israel hits hundreds of targets in Gaza as soldier is confirmed missing

Israel continued to pound Gaza overnight, including hitting 100 targets in Shujai'iya, the scene of the most intense fighting of the conflict, as the Israeli military confirmed that one of its soldiers was missing.

Hamas claimed on Sunday that it had captured an Israeli soldier during the intense battle in Shujai'iya.

The Israel Defence Forces (IDF) named the missing soldier as Sergeant Oron Shaul, 21, a combat soldier of the Golani brigade.

Hamas and Islamic Jihad reportedly agreed to a five-hour pause in the fighting. However, Haaretz quoted senior Israeli officials as saying a humanitarian ceasefire was "not on our agenda right now".

MH17 being shot down with missile *Video*

FOOTAGE TAKEN THE DAY OF THE CRASH REVEALS MISSILE HIT ON STARBOARD SIDE OF AIRCRAFT

WEBMASTER ADDITION: There are two things about this video we need to look at. First, there is no column of smoke riding up from the ground indicating a surface to air missile. Second, not that it it the starboard engine which is on fire. A radar guided missile like the BUK aims for the centroid of the radar return, meaning in the case of a 777 the fuselage just aft of the wingbox. An air-to-air missile fired from a SU-25 is guided by infra-red and will aim for one of the two engines, which this video shows to have been the case.

Israel using US-supplied CW against Gazans: Analyst

A political commentator says Israel is using US-supplied chemical weapons to target Palestinians in Gaza amid the regime’s deadly offensive against the blockaded territory, Press TV reports.

In an interview with Press TV on Sunday, Gordon Duff, a senior editor at Veterans Today, said Washington’s supplying of chemical weapons to the Tel Aviv regime “is one of the shames of the American relationship with Israel.”

The analyst added that the US has given “an infinite number of chemical weapons” to Israel, stressing that the regime has “burnt many Palestinian children” using US-supplied “white phosphorous bombs.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel sees Gaza as their own territory, so what we have here is Netanyahu using banned chemical weapons against his own people , the very crime the United States Government accused Syria's Assad of as justification to remove him from power.

FLASHBACK - Leaked documents show US Embassy in Ukraine is staging a False Flag

Evidence, including intercepted emails from “Anonymous Ukraine” and interviews with US special operations contractors, has led to the discovery of plans to stage a series of terror attacks in the Ukraine to be blamed on Russian Special Forces.

In a series of emails released on March 12, 2014, three in particular stand out. Implicated is Lt. Colonel Jason Kresh, Assistant Attaché at the US embassy in Kiev and Colonel Igor Protsyk, Chief, Bilateral Cooperation Division of the PKO General Staff, Armed Forces of the Ukraine.

Emails outline a plan for a staged attack on a Ukrainian air facility including maps of which planes are to be damaged. Other operations are outlined as well.

One thing is made clear; the attacks are to appear as though done by Russia. This is stated repeatedly.

Ukrainian fighter jet 'near' plane before crash

Russia has responded to claims it is responsible for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17, reportedly claiming that it has flight records showing a Ukranian fighter jet was close to the passenger jet before it crashed.

At a specially called briefing, Russian Lieutenant-General Andrey Kartopolov said MH17 had strayed from its regular route and had been recorded in the proximity of a Ukranian SU-25 fighter jet, which is equipped with air-to-air missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US media is in lock step (goose step?) with the US Government's push to frame Russia for the shoot down of MH17, even though nobody can come up with a reason why Russia or the Eastern Ukrainian republics would do such a stupid thing. But the rest of the world is clearly not buying the rush to judgement and starting to ask of the shoot down of MH17 was the false-flag discussed in those leaked emails from Kiev last March.

Dirty Dealing Harry Reid

Rather than write an article on this, I thought I would just post an email I received this morning. Harry Reid is up to his usual tricks. You remember him. He's the one who owns land close to the public land that Cliven Bundy was running his cattle on. Reid, with his son working with the Chinese, was hoping to make a fortune over selling land to them. Our land, by the way. Federal property does not belong to these crooks in D.C. but to all Americans.

Now he's trying to ram through legislation that would allow for taxing activity on the Internet. This is only the camels nose in the tent. Once it starts, where does it stop? Let's fight to keep our Internet free. It seems that these politicians are desperate for more money. More taxation without representation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It isn't just the money. They can write the internet taxes in a way where large corporations survive by passing the tax along to their users while small independent media websites (like this one) are forced out of business.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

State Dept. withholds intelligence on MH17 downing


State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf described Russia's statements on MH17 plane crash as "misinformation" - but when reporters asked her whether Washington would be releasing their intelligence and satellite data, Harf only replied "may be." So far the US has been backing its statements by social media and "common sense."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common sense tells us that neither Russia nor the Eastern Ukrainian republics had a reason to shoot down a passenger jet, knowing that it would turn world opinion against them.

Common sense tells us that Kev has a very strong motive to shoot down flight 17 and frame Russia and the Eastern Ukrainian republics for it, to turn world opinion against them.

Common sense says that Flight 17 is the false-flag talked about in the leaked emails from Kiev last March which called for a false-flag attack to justify US involvement in Ukraine.

Common sense says that since it was not Russia who lied to us about Saddam's nuclear weapons or Assad's chemical weapons (or torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, Lusitania not carrying weapons of war when sunk by the Germans) that we should go with Russia's view on this.

Key Piece of Video “Evidence” for Russian Responsibility for Malaysian Plane Shootdown Debunked

On Friday, the Daily Mail, one of the major UK tabloids carried photos and video of what was alleged to be a rebel “Buk” launcher heading back to Russia. The article carried a claim from some Ukrainian source that the launcher was missing several missiles after having shot them at the Malaysian 777. The article was prominently linked to the Drudge Report, and so was probably viewed by several million people.

Today, this meme made it into Uncle Sam’s official narrative, as per the following New York Times excerpt:

On the CBS program “Face the Nation,” Mr. Kerry referred to a video that the Ukrainians have made public showing an SA-11 unit heading back to Russia after the downing of the plane with “a missing missile or so.”

The video referenced by the New York Times was, in fact, posted on the Facebook account of the Ukrainian Interior Minister. The allegation was that the launcher was crossing the border with Russia.

Perverted truth: How rebel mourning MH17 victims was turned into looter with trophy

Twitter is quick, but too quick sometimes – recently it burst with photos of an evil Ukrainian militiaman who took a teddy bear from the victim of Malaysia plane crash as a trophy. But the full video shows he was just paying the tribute to the dead.

The footage shows that one of the members of self-defense troops suddenly saw a teddy bear which apparently belonged to a child who was among the 298 passenger on board the Malaysian jet.

“We want those bastards to see whom they shot down,” the man said, “Do you see?” meaning that there were innocent children who died in the crash.

Then he carefully put the toy back to a heap of other items that used to belong to the passengers. After that he took off his cap and marked himself with a sign of the cross paying the tribute to the memory of the victims of the catastrophe.

BEX ALERT - Two American soldiers die in Israel-Gaza conflict

Among the 20 Israelis who have died in the conflict, Max Steinberg and Sean Carmeli were two Americans fighting in the Israeli army.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CBS News is wagging two Americans serving in the Israeli army who have died in the invasion of Gaza to try to drag Americans' sympathies back towards Israel's side. But by doing so, CBS has reaffirmed the public perception of pro-Israel bias in that the hundreds of dead Gazans, many of them children, remain nameless and faceless in CBS' coverage.

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 not killed anyone or done more damage than knock 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 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!

Obama Leads Republicans’ War Against Russia

S. 2277 in the U.S. Senate is a bill with 26 sponsors, all of whom are Republicans. No Democrats in the Senate support it. But the bill would be a dream for Obama, who quietly does: it’s his actual policy. It aims to give him unlimited power to do to Russia what he wants to do to Russia: surround it with enemies and arm those enemies to the teeth. This Obama-Republican policy is now before the currently Democratic-majority Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and it proposes that the United States surround Russia with our nuclear missiles and Anti-Ballistic Missiles (ABMs), and with American corporate investments (tax-favored and partly financed by the U.S. public) in Russia’s adjoining countries of Ukraine and Georgia, plus in Moldova and in the Baltic nations near Russia, so as to make that strangulation even more provocative of a Russian military response, and thus of even more business to be generated for America’s arms-dealers.

‘Kiev will have to answer many questions’ as UN urges intl MH17 crash probe – Moscow

The UN Security Council has condemned the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine and called for an international probe into the incident in a unanimously adopted resolution.

All 15-member states voted to pass the Australia-proposed resolution, condemning “in the strongest terms” the crash of Malaysian plane on July 17 in Donetsk region of Ukraine, which resulted in 298 people dead.

Follow Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane crash in Ukraine LIVE UPDATES

The UN also urged a "full, thorough and independent international investigation" into the incident. The resolution also asked local self-defense forces for their cooperation, such as avoiding “from any actions that may compromise the integrity of the crash site.”

Russia's UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, said he was pleased that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will have an important role during the investigation and welcomed that fact that the Netherlands will take on the leading role as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common sense, people. Look for what should be there and isn't, and what should be there in the official story and isn't, is a REASON for either Russia or the eastern Ukrainian republics to shoot down a civilian passenger jet, knowing that such an act would turn world opinion against them.

Of course, Kiev has a very strong motive to shoot down Flight 17 and frame Russia and the eastern Ukrainian republics to turn world opinion against them. Motive, means, and opportunity, makes a very strong case that Flight 17 was shot down by a Kiev Su-25, as both the Spanish Air Traffic Controller and Russian radar data suggest. Qui bono? Who benefits? Who gets what they want?

Their equipment and tactics are just like Hezbollah. Missile traps and IEDs everywhere – and they stay and fight instead of melting away like in the past.”

They stay and fight because, unlike Israel, Palestinians in Gaza have no choice, no alternative, no option to go back to a slow death under a crippling siege.

The Overthrow of Humanity

As far back as recorded history and, no doubt, much further than that, some groups of people have been trying to take over the known world. Sometimes it is one person, with an enormous ego or self appointed right of entitlement. But just as often it’s a group. The rest of us are viewed by them as cattle, useless eaters, cannon fodder, these days, organ donors but certainly, in their way.

Many people I talk to have trouble believing or understanding the long range goals of these so-called elite because the things they do are so fantastic and evil. The very first thing you need to do is stop relating what they are accused of doing with what you would do. There is no comparison. These people would eat their own children (and no doubt have) if they thought it would further their evil agenda.

State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative

The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media.

With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Defending the charges at today’s press briefing in an increasingly testy exchange with reporters, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf referred the press to social media, while reiterating that there was totally better evidence out there that they just can’t see.

It should be clear from the MH17 hoax that the US Government still does not fully comprehend that the tactics that worked in the 1950s and 1960s are hopelessly obsolete in the age of the internet.

This is actually a good thing, because the more they play these propaganda stunts and fall flat on their face, the quicker they hasten their own collapse, sending the US Government into the dustbin of history along with that other cold-war fossil, the USSR.

Infiltrated: Mossad in Malaysia

Malaysia's internationally known politician, Anwar Ibrahim (born 1947), country's former Deputy Prime Minister (1993-98) and Finance Minister (1991-98) and currently the Opposition leader - claimed that Israeli intelligence agents (Mossad) have infiltrated into Malaysia's Bukit Aman (Federal Police headquarter in Kuala Lumpur). The espionage link to Israel is the company named Asiasoft Global Pte Ltd. (Singapore), which has worked as a sub-contractor to upgrade the telecommunication systems for the police. Two of the directors of the firm, Izhak David Nakar and Ido Schechter, are reportedly Israeli citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israeli companies were given the keys to telecommunications here in the US, specifically AMDOCs and Comverse Infosys, and all of a sudden the drug enforcement officers could not stage a successful raid on Israeli drug smugglers, who seemed to "know" ahead of time where and when the raids would be taking place! The investigation led to the uncovering of the largest foreign spy ring ever found in US history, working for Israel. Shortly after the investigation stumbled on the Israeli spy ring, 9-11 happened, and three Mossad agents were arrested after being seen cheering and clapping as the World Trade Towers collapsed. there is evidence linking these arrested Mossad agents to 9-11, but that this evidence was classified by the US Government.

Burlington, IA City Council Out of Control!

Recently the City Council had the ‘first reading’ of a new proposed town ordinance that would make it a criminal offense to let your children or grandchildren play with these toy guns and BB guns in certain settings without obtaining WRITTEN permission from the City Council first.

This ordinance even bans your children from playing with toy guns in the backseat of the car while you drive – without permission from Mayor McCampbell and the council.

Can you imagine writing that? “Dear Mayor McCampbell – can my 5 year old play with his new toy gun when we drive through town tomorrow on our way to Grandma’s house?”

But that’s not all - if you are convicted of this “crime” you could face a fine in excess of $500 and/or a 30 day stint in jail!

Claim: Israelis tried to blackmail Bill Clinton with Lewinsky tapes to force spy release

In October 1998 in a bid to gain the release of Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard, an Israeli team led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened to blackmail President Bill Clinton with tapes of Clinton and then-intern Monica Lewinsky. When Clinton brought Israel’s request for Pollard’s release to CIA Director George Tenet, Tenet threatened to resign on the spot should Clinton cave and release Pollard. Clinton ultimately declined the Israeli request, though he would consider it once again before the end of his term.

10 Amazing Health Benefits of Cinnamon

by Natural Blaze

Although the U.S. FDA has attempted to create a spice scare, the history of cinnamon use spans thousands of years among disparate cultures, rendering FDA claims as nothing more than a ham-fisted desire to assert severe regulatory control over this natural product.

The fact is: quality cinnamon, such as organic Ceylon, is one of the most diverse and inexpensive ways to boost your overall health. Taken moderately it is far safer than what the FDA continues to approve on a daily basis as over-the-counter drug consumption for adults and children...

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public. This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn't have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

Roseburg VA employees speak out about 'toxic' workplace

Two longtime Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center employees say a vindictive management style has led to rapid turnover and diminished care at the hospital.

The director of women's care, Marcia Hall, has been at the Roseburg VA for 17 years. In the past half dozen years, morale has plummeted, she said.

"It's almost as if the system has been hijacked," she said.

VA doctor Steven Blum said the culture has become "toxic."

"It's abusive to work there," he said.

Black Hat presentation on TOR suddenly cancelled

A presentation on a low-budget method to unmask users of a popular online privacy tool, TOR, will no longer go ahead at the Black Hat security conference early next month.

The talk was nixed by the legal counsel with Carnegie Mellon’s Software Engineering Institute after a finding that materials from researcher Alexander Volynkin were not approved for public release, according to a notice on the conference’s website.

It’s rare but not unprecedented for Black Hat presentations to be cancelled. It was not clear why lawyers felt Volynkin’s presentation should not proceed.

Volynkin, a research scientist with the university’s Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT) was due to give a talk entitled “You Don’t Have to be the NSA to Break Tor: Deanonymizing Users on a Budget” at the conference, which take places Aug. 6-7 in Last Vegas.

Bill Clinton 'has a busty blond mistress nicknamed "Energizer" by his Secret Service detail who work to hide the woman from Hillary'

Bill Clinton's mistress has been nicknamed 'Energizer' by his security staff, a new book alleges.

Ronald Kessler's 'The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,' excerpts of which were obtained by the New York Post's Richard Johnson, makes the claim.

One excerpt includes a quote from a source that revealed 'Energizer' has no problem getting inside the Clintons' Chappaqua, New York home

'You don’t stop her, you don’t approach her, you just let her go in,' the source said.

The former president's other woman has 'very perky' augmented breasts, another source alleged in quotes shared by the newspaper.

The Stealing of America by the Cops, the Courts, the Corporations and Congress

Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft.

We’re operating in a topsy-turvy Sherwood Forest where instead of Robin Hood and his merry band of thieves stealing from the rich to feed the poor, you’ve got the government and its merry band of corporate thieves stealing from the poor to fatten the wallets of the rich. In this way, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. All the while, the American Dream of peace, prosperity, and liberty has turned into a nightmare of endless wars, debilitating debt, and outright tyranny.

Judge tosses senator's ObamaCare lawsuit

A federal judge on Monday dismissed a U.S. senator's lawsuit challenging a requirement that congressional members and their staffs obtain government-subsidized health insurance through small business exchanges, saying the senator had no grounds to sue.

Sen. Ron Johnson, a Wisconsin Republican, filed the lawsuit in January after the Office of Personnel Management decided months earlier that lawmakers and their staffs should continue to receive health care benefits covering about 75 percent of their premium costs after leaving the health insurance program for federal workers.

Slaughtering the men, women and children you illegally occupy and daily humiliate…It’s the new ‘self defence’

I mean, would a British government be mad enough to illegally occupy its next door neighbours for nearly 50 years, trash their heritage, steal their resources, move settlers into choice locations, cage the natives within the sealed remnants then bomb them all to hell and back for firing garden-shed rockets? Wellyes, I guess a Cameron government might do exactly that if told to… and call it self defence just like their Israeli buddies.

Silver Opium – The Eastern Revenge

When I began to explore the opium wars, which began in the early 1700?s and came into full view in the early 1800?s, Britain, France and the United States, had taken full aim at China in the name of “free trade”. Things haven’t changed all that much since the West looked East to find a flow of wealth they could not control.

The Chinese had a lock on trade in the early 1700?s by having products that people wanted to purchase, silk, tea and porcelain in particular. The Chinese were not that interested in what the East had to offer. At the time silver was not only money, but it was the currency of the day. People used silver like we use worthless paper dollars/debit cards today.

Government agents ‘directly involved’ in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Some of the controversial "sting" operations "were proposed or led by informants", bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

Sessions noted that the Senate bill could allow almost every Central American family to enter the U.S. legally.
