Era Of Shattered Illusions

Catastrophe occurs when too many people refuse to accept that around us always are two universes at work. There is the cold, hard reality that underlies everything. And on the surface is a veil of deceit and compromise. The more humanity compromises vital truths in order to enjoy the comfort of illusions, the more mind-shattering it will be when those illusions fall away. These two worlds can coexist only for short periods of time, and they will always and eventually collide. There is no other possible outcome.

The U.S. has more jails than colleges. Here’s a map of where those prisoners live

The map shows the raw number of prisoners in each U.S. county as of the 2010 Census. Much of the discussion of regional prison population only centers around inmates in our 1,800 state and federal correctional facilities. But at any given time, hundreds of thousands more individuals are locked up in the nation's 3,200 local and county jails. This map includes these individuals as well.

Fired Cop with Violent past Is about to Get His Job Back

A former Des Moines thug police officer with a disturbing past is likely to get his job back by the end of this month.

His name is Cody Grimes. Ring a bell? If so, that's because he's been in the news before.

Three times.

For really, really disturbing reasons.

CNN-Edited Interview Proves that Dr. Duke is Right about Zio-Censorship

A comparison between the full, uncensored interview transcript and the final edited version broadcast by CNN of Dr. David Duke’s recent interview proves beyond any doubt that Jewish Supremacist media such as Mr. Zucker’s CNN censor the news—exactly as Dr. Duke said in the interview! In fact, the part of the interview saying that the Jewish networks censor the news was itself cut out!

Total Smart Grid Control: “Warren Buffett Wants to Tell You When You Can Wash Your Clothes”

Bloomberg News began its recent piece on this with the slightly different line, “Warren Buffett wants to tell you the best time to wash your clothes.”

But the article continues on with not just Buffett wanting to give you a friendly reminder of a more cost-effective time of day to use energy…

No apparently, in conjunction with Siemens AG, Buffett’s UK Northern Powergrid Holdings Company is testing a new smart-grid system that will be able to literally take control of when a homeowner can use their appliances. They are testing quote, “a so-called smart grid that has the ability to control when consumer appliances will be used in the home.”

Woman Allows Thousands of Bedbugs to Feed on Her over 5 Years, Makes Incredible Discovery

Now her literal blood sacrifice has paid off. She and her husband Gerhard, both biologist at Simon Fraiser University in Vancouver British Columbia, say they have figured out how to attract and repel the bloodsucking parasites.

It turns out bed bugs communicate by odor. The researchers have been able to identify that histamine effectively repelled the creepy creatures.

Watch a meteor turn night into DAY: Security cameras capture the moment a space rock blazes across sky in Bucharest

At 3:05am local time, several security cameras throughout the Romanian city captured the incredible sight of the space rock lighting up the area.

The flash lasted for several seconds, with locals expressing their shock at the eerie glow which engulfed parts of the capital.

The Romanian Space Agency (Rosa) said the event was caused by a meteoroid entering the Earth's atmosphere and was recorded at an altitude of 31 - 43 miles (50 – 70km).

Michael G. Waltz: Profit-Making Proponent of Endless War Michael S. Rozeff

hoo-rah stupidity!

“He who joyfully marches to music rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance and all the loathsome nonsense that goes by the name of patriotism, how violently I hate all this, how despicable and ignoble war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder.”
- Albert Einstein

CHARLIE HEBDO WHERE'S THE BLOOD?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absence of blood is curious, but if you look closely at the slow motion at 1:03 you will see that the gunshot fired at the cop on the ground (who happens to be Muslim) actually misses him and strikes the pavement several inches past him.

But the main reason I wanted to post this is that it confirms that an Israeli media deputy editor "just happened" to be there to get the scenes on video.

UPDATE: I am receiving emails that the unedited video showing that the gunshot misses the man on the ground are being pulled down from services like Vimeo because of "disgusting content", which is apparently code-speak for "embarrassing revelation that undermines the official story." So grab a copy off the web while you still can!

UPDATE 2: YouTube just yanked the version above. Here is another.

Medical Tyranny: Supreme Court Just Ruled the Government Can Force a 17-Year-Old to Take Chemotherapy

How can any American living here in the supposed “land of the free” honestly believe we still are?

The Connecticut Supreme Court has now ruled that yes, the government has the power to force a minor to undergo chemotherapy treatments even if she doesn’t want to.

That’s right. The court has unanimously determined that a 17-year-old patient cannot refuse chemotherapy treatment, even if her mother agrees they want to seek alternative treatment, for her Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

We aren’t just a fascist oligarchy and a police state, but we absolutely a medical tyranny.

You know this isn't going to stop with cancer treatments, either.

House passes 40-hour workweek for Obamacare; Dems buck Obama veto threat

The House passed a bill Thursday that defines full-time work under Obamacare as a traditional 40 hours, with a dozen Democrats choosing to rebuff President Obama’s veto threat before the measure heads for a tougher test in the Senate.

Obama Has Killed More People with Drones than Died on 9/11

Obama has increased the number of drone attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere.

Law school teacher Marjorie Cohn – president of the National Lawyers Guild – writes:

"Obama has killed more people with drones than died on 9/11. Many of those killed were civilians, and only a tiny percentage of the dead were al-Qaeda or Taliban leaders."

Is she right?

5 Times “Obeying the Law” in America Was a Terrible Idea

In the midst of outrage against police brutality, cop apologists argue that to avoid police brutality, people should simply be obeying the law. This justification however, reveals itself as unwise at best (and flat out stupid at worst) when applied to previous laws in American history.

Who profits from killing Charlie?

And yes, I am Charlie. Not only because they made us laugh; but because they were sacrificial lambs in a much nastier, gruesome, never-ending shadowplay.

Cui bono?

Careful planning and preparation; Kalashnikovs; rocket-propelled grenade launcher; balaclavas; sand-colored ammunition vest stuffed with spare magazines; army boots; piece of cake escape in a black Citroen. And the icing on the lethal cake; faultless Paris-based logistical support to pull that off.

They might have spoken perfect French; others said it was broken French. Anyway, what matters is that they uttered the magic word; “We’re al-Qaeda.”

And just to make sure everyone had the perpetrators implanted on their brain, the killers also said, “Allahu Akbar”; “We have killed Charlie Hebdo”; and “We have avenged the Prophet.”

DUI Checkpoint? “You Do Not Have to Roll Your Window Down. You Do Not Have to Talk to Police.” Say Nothing, and Display THIS

As DUI checkpoints have become widespread on roadways in nearly every state across the union, controversy has grown over the extent of police powers and where the line is drawn on an individual’s constitutional rights.

While police may be searching for evidence randomly from everyone on the roadways in the name of public safety, you do not have to be caught up in their sweep. Violations of your Constitutional rights are unlawful, and you do NOT have to comply with unlawful requests. You do NOT have to talk to police. Know your rights and protect yourself from potential abuse.

Here’s how one guy got through a DUI checkpoint in Florida without a word to police – and hanging this piece of paper out the window...

Waging War on Islam by Stephen Lendman

snip: MSM hype anti-Islamic bigotry. Finger-pointing the wrong way. Blaming innocent Muslims for false flag attacks.

America's phony war on terror persists. Not a single independently verified Muslim terror plot in America was foiled. No real terrorists were arrested. None!

Fabricated ones were hyped. Previous articles discussed a fake shoe bomber. Fake underwear bomber. Fake Times Square bombers.

Fake shampoo bombers. Fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake mass casualty attacks on New York landmarks.

Fake Oregon bomber. Fake armed forces recruiting station bomber. Fake synagogue bombers. Fake Chicago Sears Tower bombers.

Fake FBI and other government buildings bombers. Fake National Guard, Fort Dix, and Quantico marine base attackers.

Fake Boston bombers. Fake 9/11 ones. Numerous others. Incidents usually strategically timed. It remains to be seen what follows Wednesday's Paris killings.

Charlie Hebdo and Tsarnaev’s Trial: Qui bono? by Paul Craig Roberts

snip: The Roman question is always: Who benefits? The answer is: Not France, not Muslims, but US world hegemony. US hegemony over the world is what the CIA supports. US world hegemony is the neoconservative-imposed foreign policy of the US.

According to National Public Radio, Charlie Hebdo is about free speech. The US has free speech, claim NPR’s pundits, but terrorists have taken it away from the French.

Just how does the US have free speech when NY Times reporter James Risen was psychologically put on the rack to force him to reveal his source, despite the fact that Risen and his source are protected by the US Constitution and whistleblower protections. Clearly, in the US “national security” has trumped everything else.

BEX Alert!!! - "Michael Hayden: NSA Metadata May Be Key to Solving Paris Attack"

The Islamic terrorist attack at the French magazine Charlie Hebdo underscores the importance of national surveillance programs, specifically the collection of metadata, former NSA and CIA director Michael Hayden said Thursday on Newsmax TV's “America’s Forum.”

“One of the things the French will come to us almost certainly and ask as they continue their investigation, they're going to come across different communications devices and they know that NSA does magnificently collecting metadata in a variety of areas around the world,” Hayden said.

“A lot of people were hyperventilating about that six, 12 or 18 months ago. The French are going to come to us and ask us in that ocean of metadata, do these new numbers that we've just associated with these people, do these new numbers show up and what have they been doing and with whom have they been in contact? We did that stuff for a reason. We did it to keep you safe, not to invade your privacy.”

MASSACHUSETTS LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES CLAIM THEY'RE CORPORATIONS AND THEY'RE EXEMPT FROM FOIA REQUESTS

A public records battle is brewing in Massachusetts between the state’s ACLU regional chapter and a coalition of law enforcement agencies who have formed a private corporation and are now claiming they are exempt from public records laws. The North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, or “NEMLEC,” is a 501(c)(3) corporation formed by 58 city police and sheriff’s departments in Middlesex and Essex County, Massachusetts. Each of the member departments has committed to devote 10 percent of its resources to NEMLEC when needed, pays annual dues, and in return can call in NEMLEC’s resources when requested.

FLASHBACK 2009 - Charlie Hedbo fired a writer for a joke they said as anti-semitic - then he was charged with a hate crime

Maurice Sinet, 80, who works under the pen name Sine, faces charges of "inciting racial hatred" for a column he wrote last July in the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. The piece sparked a summer slanging match among the Parisian intelligentsia and ended in his dismissal from the magazine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Freedom of speech only applies if you target Muslims!!!

Policing comes to a stop in New York, people get along peacefully and society continues

We are constantly reminded by State institutions, from lecture halls to mainstream "news" organizations, that if it weren't for the police out there arresting everybody, society would break down immediately.

Oh there will be the motorcycle gangs with flamethrowers invading supermarkets, the wild-eyed adolescents disobeying teachers and leaving school, the religious conservatives forming new dictatorships, the horde of unwashed illegal immigrants urinating on our golf courses, the rabid murder parties and fornication spilling onto the streets, zoo animals escaping and mauling the children - the end of human civilization.

Well, there has finally been a "virtual stoppage" of police activity in New York, and the people there are... reading blogs, working, buying groceries, watching netflix, waiting in lines, saying hi to strangers, checking facebook. Same as usual. It looks like they haven't murdered each other yet.

Of course they haven't.

Amidst A Religious War in Europe Or Is It Just another False Flag Operation?

While every anti terror expert has agreed that the attack on Charlie Hebdo yesterday was a professional job, it seems pretty amateurish for a ‘highly trained terrorist’ to leave his ID behind. And since when does a terrorist take his ID on an operation? One possible explanation is that the so-called terrorists needed a few extra hours to leave France or disappear. They had to fool the French police and intelligence into searching the wrong places and the wrong people. Is it possible that they simply planted a stolen or forged ID card in the car they left behind?

If this was the scenario, it is possible that the attack yesterday had nothing to do with ‘Jihadi terrorism.’ It is quite probable that this was another false flag operation. Who could be behind it? Use your imagination...

Jeffrey Epstein: Prince Andrew's paedo billionaire pal 'bullied journalist into suppressing exposé'

A journalist who planned to expose the Wall Street tycoon at the centre of the Prince Andrew “sex slave” saga says he bullied her into silence.

Vicky Ward claims that in 2002 two young sisters gave her harrowing accounts of how convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein had molested them.

British-born Vicky said Epstein “attacked both me and my sources” and “spooked” everyone at America’s influential Vanity Fair magazine out of printing the girls’ stories.

Her decision to speak out comes a week after it emerged that Virginia Roberts had claimed in court papers that she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew when she was Epstein’s 17-year-old “sex slave”.

Right on cue, Netanyahu chimed in, “The heinous acts in Paris today won’t be the last.”

By way of deception wage war, goes the Mossad motto.

BEX Alert!!! - "Alan Dershowitz: France Reaped What It Sowed in Paris Attack"

While France is reeling from the terrorist massacre of 12 people at the Paris offices of a satirical magazine, the country is also "one of the worst … when it comes to rewarding terrorism," lawyer and author Alan Dershowitz told "MidPoint" host Ed Berliner on Newsmax TV Wednesday.

"They play with everybody. They reward every terrorist," Dershowitz said of the French.

"They've never been part of the international campaign against terrorism. They are part of the problem, not part of the solution." . . .

. . . "Not tens, hundreds or thousands," he said, "but millions will be supporting what happened today. It's very, very big problem. The reason it has so many supporters is because it works. Terrorism works. It achieves the goals and results. Palestinians would not be getting a state today if it wasn't for their terrorists."

6 Points To Consider When Analyzing The Charlie Hebdo Attacks

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In the aftermath of yet another highly publicized terror attack - this time in France - by Islamic fundamentalists, the Western public is once again experiencing a variety of emotional reactions that they have carefully been trained to experience whenever such events take place at home or abroad.

The xenophobic pro-war right is predictably using the attack as an example of how all Muslims are terrorists and how their total annihilation and implementation of police state tactics are the only solution. On the one hand, the pathetic left-wing attempts to blame the victim for incitement and focuses on the need to become more politically correct, self-censoring, and linguistically minimal. The vast majority in the middle, however, believe the official mainstream version of events, quake in their boots, and move on to the next form of entertainment provided to them by the culture creators without a second thought.

White House: America Needs to Work Harder to Explain True ‘Tenets’ of Islam

Apparently the White House Press Secretary hasn’t gotten the memo about the centuries old acts of Islamic Jihadism. When asked about the terror level threat in the United States being increased, he told reporters they’d have to speak with Homeland Security. Islamic Jihadists just don’t understand the ‘religion of peace’ according to the White House.

Militant flags, petrol bombs found [or planted] in Paris attack getaway car: Source

French investigators found a dozen Molotov cocktails and two militant flags in the getaway car used in the massacre at a Paris magazine, a source close to the case told AFP Thursday

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is starting to look like a cheap detective movie, where the clues are always in clear view of the camera to make sure the audience sees them!

It reminds me of a line spoken by detective Hercule Poirot in "The Orient Express", when looking at a murder scene, "There are too many clues in this room!" Ultimately, the clues turn out to be planted fakes leading a false trail away from the real killers.

Charlie Hebdo shooting suspect defended by classmates on Twitter

Classmates of an 18-year-old accused of being the getaway driver in the deadly attack on Charlie Hebdo magazine offices in Paris on Wednesday have defended him on Twitter, saying he was in class when masked gunmen opened fire.

Mourad Hamyd turned himself in to police in his home town of Charleville-Mézières, near the Belgian border, after he was named as one of three suspects in the attack, which killed 12, and saw his name on social media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Weird. That egg-timer just ran out! :)

Jan 08 08:45

Mourad Hamyd surrenders because his name is all over the media, but insists he is innocent.

French media later reported that Hamyd was being held, but not charged.

In Charleville-Mezières, students from Lycee Monge and the surrounding community have been tweeting with the hashtag #MouradHamydInnocent.

In Brief: Conservatives Need to Be Careful How They Condemn the Paris Shooting

Before you get all smug and superior about how you, a brave Christian conservative, would never be so savage as to want violence to be done to satirists, not like those fuckin' Moo-Slims who are just fuckin' animals who fuck animals or whatever the fuck you think, before you go down that road, you need to accept what exactly the French magazine Charlie Hebdo was publishing that so enraged a trio of gunmen that they shot and killed a dozen people at Charlie Hebdo's office in Paris today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Now, if you are Catholic, ask yourself if you are offended by this Charlie Hebdo cover. Be honest with yourself.

Using its global reach irresponsibly. Betraying its readers in the process. Why don't Times editors tell readers about Obama's Ukrainian friends? Abhorrent ones.

Touching a raw nerve. Showing increasing numbers of people fed up with managed news misinformation rubbish.

Wanting what Times and other MSM scoundrels don’t deliver. Real news, information and analysis.

On issues mattering most. Domestic and geopolitical. Things affecting ordinary people’s lives and welfare directly. At the most perilous time in world history.

Out-of-control US policies make global war possible. Madness if happens. The role of the media is to inform. Fully and accurately.

Telling people what they need to know. Especially on issues mattering most. What’s more important than war and peace?

PCR interviewed by Sputnik: Has President Obama delivered on his pledges? Whose interest has Obama served?

He has achieved the agenda of the neoconservatives and the military security complex. He has demonized Russia and its President. He has broken up the economic and political relationships between Russia and Europe. He has secured the agenda of the Wall Street, by establishing through the Department of Justice that there would be no prosecution of the criminal gangsters that dislocated the American financial system and ripped off millions of people. He has achieved the agenda of the lawlessness of the US, having determined that the people who tortured detainees will not be prosecuted, even though torture is a felony under the US law and is also prohibited under the international law.

It’s hard to feel any optimism about end-of-year reflections when the Isramerican military-industrial-corporate-media empire, which controls our reality, is going through its death throes and taking the planet down with it. If the empire ain’t killin’, it’s dyin’! The need to keep the world in a heightened state of panic means that rational decision-making must be sabotaged, which is why the same crises persist or get worse from year to year while omnipresent solutions to them are actively ignored. In other words, human time, the time associated with progress, stands still, and so every December 31 we reflect on a year that is morally, politically and economically worse than the one previous.

The French Connection – False Flags and the Charlie Hebdo Incident

Jay Dyer
Activist Post

A new year brings resolutions, and for the establishment, the resolutions are quite clear: more of the same! More false flags, more media circus and staged news, ad infinitum, ad nauseam. In the 1971 film "The French Connection," New York detective “Popeye” Doyle (Gene Hackman) uncovers an underworld drug smuggling operation involving the importation of millions of dollars in heroin by a French cartel that planned to use a media personality as an unwitting front.

Today, we all awoke to news the Onion-like French satire publication Charlie Hebdo had been attacked by terrorists, with Al Qaeda taking responsibility for the murder of several media figures. While it is tempting to get bogged down in “fluid” situation details, we must always recall similar patterns of such events in the recent past which will serve to inform the greater context of this new event in the never-ending “war on terror.”...

Rand Paul & Wife Kelley Ready to Revisit Monica Lewinsky if Hillary runs- (But MUM on Vince Foster, & Hillary's Drug-Smuggler Pal Jorge Cabrera)

As the 2016 presidential primary heats up, Rand Paul and his wife Kelley Ashby have both broached the 1990's scandal of Bill & Hillary Clinton and Monica Lewinski. Kelley, described in Vogue Magazine as Paul's 'charming, secret-weapon wife' who worked for a political consulting firm, zeroed in on Monica Lewinski. She told Vogue that "Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky should complicate his return to the White House, even as First Spouse." Rand followed up by telling NBC News "Yes, I think it's a factor... it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history... This is with regard to the Clintons, and sometimes it's hard to separate one from the other. But I would say that, with regard to his place in history, that it certainly is a discussion." What Rand WON'T focus on is the Clinton's involvement in the death of Vince Foster, Drug-running at Mena, Hillary's Drug-Smuggler Pal Jorge Cabrera, or explosives found inside the OKC Federal Building under Clinton's watch.

I hope very much that Dershowitz is telling the truth, but there is something about his denials that I find curious.

Alleged Gunman on School Grounds in Shoreline, WA: Real or Hoax?

I asked, but they haven't a clue as to what he looks like, only that he had a pulled over-head hoodie. More pictures and interview with Deputy Sheriff Gates to follow.

No clue as to whether it was a handgun or a rifle.
No notation as to the general size of the suspect, thin, fat, medium, tall, short....
No notation as to whether he had an accent or anything.....?

1.800.NOCLUE

Note: The rifle pictured is reportedly NOT the suspect weapon. No injuries are reported, and some of the children at other area schools are on lockdown as they received notification of the event after students had arrived.

The total lockdown was a joint decision by the district and area law enforcement. Any other incidents in the future will be handed on a case-by-case basis.

Do some deep-diving on this one, folks.....

BEX Alert!!! - "Michael Hayden: Paris Attack Is 'New Flavor of Islamic Terrorism'"

Wednesday’s deadly terrorist attack by hooded gunmen at the offices of a Paris satirical magazine is likely the wave of the future, says Michael Hayden, former head of the National Security Agency and the CIA, who appeared Wednesday on "America’s Forum" on Newsmax TV.

"We’re going to get the kinds of attacks like a drive-by shooting in Little Rock or an SUV in Times Square or the kind of event that we see today," Hayden said, noting that officials think terror groups will resort to softer targets because they are seemingly no longer able to pull off attacks like a 9/11.

"This is going to be the new flavor of the threat from Islamic terrorism."

Charlie Hebdo Killers Armed and Trained In Syria - Terrorism Made In France?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

It has now been officially revealed (to the surprise of virtually no one) that at least two of the suspects in the Charlie Hebdo shootings are French-born individuals who were recruited for and trained in Syria in order to fight against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

French police revealed today that the three suspects, Said Kouachi, 34, and Cherif Kouachi, 32, and Hamyd Mourad, 18, were the target of a massive manhunt. Said and Cherif are both French nationals while Hamyd’s nationality is not known at this time.

Cherif Kouachi was no stranger to French law enforcement. He was sentenced to three years imprisonment with 18 months suspended for terrorism charges in 2008 when was convicted of “criminal association with a terrorist enterprise.”...

Palestinians: On Their Own for Justice by Stephen Lendman

snip: Hold the cheers. The ICC is a Western tool. Serving its interests. Its January 1 statement said:

"(T)he Registrar of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Herman von Hebel, received a document…by the Palestinian government declaring Palestine's acceptance of the jurisdiction of the ICC since 13 June 2014."

"Acceptance of the ICC's jurisdiction does not automatically trigger an investigation."

The ICC was established to prosecute individuals for genocide and aggression. As well as crimes of war and against humanity.

Controlled by Western interests. Functioning as an imperial tool. Petitioning it at most will embarrass Israel.

None of its officials will be held accountable. Business as usual won't change. Palestinians remain isolated on their own.

Robert Fisk is right saying wanting international law enforced won't help them. Demanding justice this way never worked. Why expect something different this time?

Why the Republican Congress’s First Act Was to Declare War on Math

The first substantive act of the new, all-Republican Congress was a telling one: House and Senate leaders, now in partisan accord and able to impose an undiluted partisan imprint upon the institution, struck a blow in their decades-long struggle on behalf of low taxes for the rich and against the bookkeeping standards that have stood in their way. In a rapid vote yesterday, the House directed the Congressional Budget Office to use “dynamic scoring” — a Washington term of art to describe imposing conservative ideology upon the once-neutral task of measuring the budgetary impact of legislation.

Puffing the Venom

“Encouraging sectarian conflict is a two-edge sword. It might topple Iraq's Al-Maliki for example, but puffs of venom will reach Eastern Saudi Arabia which inhabited by Shiite Muslims as well as Bahrain and Kuwait. No one can predict the results which will surely change current political and demographic maps. Saudi and Qatari media are 'celebrating' ISIS's control in Iraq (Arabic speakers can easily demonstrate these celebrations), for nothing, except because ISIS is fighting Iran's allies.”

As expected, ISIS attacked Saudi border patron, two days ago. Two Saudi Arabian border guards have been killed and a third injured on the frontier with Iraq in a suicide attack, the Saudi interior ministry has said.

The pendulum swung far to the right after 9/11. Now it is swinging back,” Hamm said. “Fear and paralysis gripped the country after 9/11 and the creation of our authoritarian police state. We are overcoming this fear. The rebellion in Ferguson was not planned. It was spontaneous. People said, ‘Enough.’ They struck out in the only way they knew how. All the other ways—and I have no doubt that the people in Ferguson and St. Louis, as we have, marched peacefully, sent letters and went to city council meetings to protest police violence—have proved ineffective. We will see other incidents like this one, but because of demographic changes these rebellions will occur in places that did not rebel previously.”

France Armed Terrorists that Struck Paris

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

France, as part of a NATO-led coalition, has been arming, funding, aiding, and otherwise perpetuating Al Qaeda terrorists for years, beginning, on record in Libya with the overthrow of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and continuing until today with NATO's arming, harboring, and backing of Al Qaeda terrorists including the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS) within and along Syria's borders.

With the recent attack in Paris likely the work of the very terrorists France has been arming and backing across North Africa and the Middle East, the French government itself stands responsible, guilty of the continued material support of a terrorist organization that has now killed French citizens, including two police officers, not only on French soil, but within the French capital itself...

The greatest trick Obama ever pulled was convincing the world America isn’t still at war

The holiday headlines blared without a hint of distrust: “End of War” and “Mission Ends” and “U.S. formally ends the war in Afghanistan,” as the U.S. government and Nato celebrated the alleged end of the longest war in American history. Great news! Except, that is, when you read past the first paragraph: “the fighting is as intense as it has ever been since the U.S.-led invasion in 2001,” according to the Wall Street Journal . And about 10,000 troops will remain there for the foreseeable future (more than we had a year after the Afghan war started ). Oh, and they’ll continue to engage in combat regularly . But other than that, yeah, the war is definitely over.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And I can nearly guarantee you; the current wars are prologue for future wars, potentially against China and Russia to prevent the end of dominance by the US dollar.

The US government is financially on the ropes, and the only way the members of this government have known, historically, to get off those ropes, is to wage war.

This country experienced two massive depressions, followed, inevitably by war. Although the presstitutes dare not mention it, we are in another massive recession right now, because all the decently paying jobs, which used to support this country's middle class, have been offshored/outsourced to places with nearly slave labor wages.

And please, if you don't believe me, take a look at this; last year, Charlie Rangel, the senior Congressional Representative from New York, introduced a bill to reinstate the draft; but this time, should this be passed, it will be coming for both our sons and our daughters. When last I checked this month, it is still in Committee, waiting for the "right emotional moment" to be passed.

So please, do not listen to those advocating violence.

Because if American streets become violent, who wins? Cue Bono?!?

Brandon Smith

The structure of history is held together by two essential and distinct kinds of links, two moments in time to which no one is immune: moments of epiphany, and moments of catastrophe. Sometimes, both elements intermingle at the birth of a singular epoch. Men often awaken to understanding in the midst of great crisis; and, invariably, great crises can erupt when men awaken. These are the moments when social gravity vanishes, when the kinetic glue of normalcy melts away, and we begin to see the true foundations of our world, if a foundation exists at all.

In late 2012, for instance, the United States ranked toward the bottom of a world list of gas prices, wedged between the likes of Tunisia and Chad on one side and Russia and Kazakhstan on the other. Most first-world countries paid at least double what America did then, just as they do today.
