Sacred Cow BBQ 15 Oct: Frederick C Blackburn, NSA Whistleblower

Lehigh Valley, PA CopBlockers Arrested For Filming Police- Need Help Now

[Posters note: The cops arrested them for nothing and stole all their camera equipment, and did not give it back. they posted the police dept phone numbers at the bottom of the article,. Public pressure CAN indeed help and does often work in these situations..] "About three hours later, we were all released without our camera equipment & cell phones nor any tickets with the officer’s name on it (they’re going to mail the charges to us). I wasn’t leaving without knowing who they were. I turned and demanded each and every one of their business cards. I was denied. I, then, asked if I could just write down their names. I was told to do it on my own time. I also asked for a receipt for my property being held. Again, I was denied. I began to argue over it, and was threatened with arrest if I didn’t leave. Finally, Rick & Scott convinced me to leave the station…for now. Help me get my camera back!

Film: EXPULSION - Syrian Christians under attack from ISIS/FSA and NATO

A documentary short film on Syrian Christians
by Anastasia Popova
2015
Anastasia Popova’s brief documentary film Expulsion (Izgnanie), made for the Russian television channel Rossiia, focuses on the plight of Christians in war-torn Syria. This subject is worthy of greater attention than it has received in the mainstream Western media, hence our effort to subtitle her project.
After all, Christians are one the most persecuted groups in the world. Their depopulation is a general trend in the entire Middle East and North African region (MENA), not just in Syria. This documentary states that, for instance, half of Palestine’s population was once Christian, but now only 5% remain.

Iraq shows off airstrike by new Chinese-made combat drone (VIDEO)

The US will lose most of their arms exporting business over the next few years.

The Iraqi military has released a video displaying the combat deployment of a CH-4B drone which the country recently bought from China. Baghdad has been diversifying its arms supply to decrease its reliance on American producers.

The Caihong (Rainbow) 4B drone flew from the al-Kut Air Base southeast of Baghdad and shot an AR-1 laser-guided anti-tank missile at an Islamic State target, according to the Iraqi Defense Ministry. The first-ever Iraqi combat drone mission was supervised by Defense Minister Khaled-al-Obeidi.

Hezbollah attack kills 5 'ISIS' fighters in north Lebanon

Check out this comment in The Jerusalem Post. Bob Ben-Gurion • 2 days ago

Immediately prior to my stint in Vietnam (many, many years ago ... even before many posters here were even born), I was heartened to know that I (and others) had received the very finest “training” that the American military could provide. And that --- coupled with the very latest in weaponry --- caused me to adopt a now-strange feeling of invincibility. The very first time that a VC mortar shell
exploded, some tens of yards from my position, that notion of “invincibility”
immediately evaporated … and I soiled my combat fatigues. Even now, at 67-years old, I will never forget that singular moment in time: the noise, and the
screams, and the smells, and the fear.

But as time went on, and I experienced more and more of those dreadful moments … I got used to it … AND IT WAS THEN THAT I TRULY BECAME A REAL SOLDIER.

If the world were 100 people, and all assets 100 M&Ms: experiencing the 1% owning more than all 99% combined

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

I wrote that Credit Suisse documents in Global Wealth Report 2015 that the world’s wealthiest 1% now own more assets than Earth’s 99% combined. Here’s a revealing 3-minute video from 2013 on the wealth transfer from “former” colonized countries to their “former” imperial masters:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uWSxzjyMNpU

... and just ‘cuz it’s 30-seconds, consider a moment more of who’s “developing” whom:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cNmGUEH7-KI

To visualize this pyramid of wealth inequality/poverty, imagine 100 people with a total of 100 M&Ms to be divided among them. This is the approximate wealth analogy reported by Bank Suisse:
1 person has 50 M&Ms.
7 people have 5 each.
22 people have one half an M&M each.
70 people have ~1/20th of an M&M; literally taking 3-4 M&Ms to smash, then dividing the tiny pieces among 70 people.

Hillary Clinton LAUGHS when Jake Tapper asks her about the FBI's investigation into her emails

Hillary Clinton still gets a kick out of what rival Bernie Sanders said about her 'damn emails' at Tuesday night's debate.

She laughed about it again on Sunday when State of the Union host Jake Tapper brought it up.

But Clinton continued laughing when Tapper asked her about the FBI's investigation into her emails - opening herself up to criticism that she's making light of the ongoing scandal, which has caused her poll numbers to dip in recent months.

Police clash with opposition in Podgorica; parliament deputies injured

The Democratic Front demonstrators took part in a protest march against the policy of Montenegrin Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic, including his plans to join NATO, on Saturday after police had bulldozed a tent camp, which the protesters set up outside the parliament building 20 days ago. Witnesses said the police had brutally beaten the demonstrators and arrested several people. According to the protests’ organizers, Premier Milo Djukanovic a personal order to crack down on the camp. According to Radio and Television of Montenegro (RTCG), police used tear gas and percussion grenades to prevent protesters from Montenegro’s Democratic Front to break police cordons set up outside the Montenegrin parliament. The city center is totally blocked. Branko Radulovic, the parliament’s vice-speaker, and Deputy Nebojsa Medojevic have been injured.

Bernie Sanders Fulfils Promise to Sandra Bland’s Mother

During a chance encounter at a restaurant last week, presidential candidate Bernie Sanders met Sandra Bland’s mother and family members. Instead of using the private moment as a political photo op, Sen. Sanders promised to continue saying her daughter’s name in the pursuit of justice. At the Democratic presidential debate on Tuesday, Sanders kept his promise to say her name.

In her blog, Rev. Hannah Bonner recalled eating with Sandra Bland’s mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, in a Thai restaurant at Union Station in Washington last week when they noticed Sanders sitting at another table. After Bonner asked the presidential candidate if he would like to meet Bland’s mother, Sanders replied, “Yes, please.”

Bonner wrote, “You do not often get to witness moments like that. Moments when agendas are laid aside and people who might not otherwise ever have the chance to connect without cameras watching can simply honor one another’s pain and humanity.”

Dozens of Jews illegally enter torched West Bank shrine

The military said some 30 Jews descended upon the Joseph's Tomb compound in Nablus, a site revered by Jews as the tomb of the biblical figure Joseph. The area is under full Palestinian control but Jewish prayer is permitted there when coordinated with authorities. The military said Sunday's visit was not, and the worshippers had no permit. When they arrived they were confronted by Palestinians and a violent clash ensued. In consultation with Palestinian security forces, the military extracted the worshippers. One of them was lightly wounded and five were taken for police questioning.

Kershner takes all the stabbing allegations as fact, rejecting any evidence to the contrary, and nowhere in this lengthy story do we find any concern for how Palestinians are feeling even though more than two dozen have been killed since Oct. 1 and more than 1,300 wounded (compared with four Israelis killed and some 28 wounded in the same time period).

"A Very Heavy Agenda" - New documentary released about the neocons and how they run foreign policy for Dems & Repubs

They work both sides of the Democrat Republican fence (not that it is much of a fence anyway) and are now up to their eyeballs in reviving the cold war.

About the video:

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.

The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Part 2: How We Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The New Neocons 1hr 35mins

After the Cold War, the US-NATO reach expanded significantly to take in most of the old Soviet Union clients in the Warsaw pact. Neoconservative darling Robert Kagan and his diplomat wife Victoria Nuland played key roles inside and out of various administrations and think tanks as they greased the skids for a US-sponsored coup in Ukraine. Part 2 shows the resurrection of old cold warriors from beltway depths to deliver blatant propaganda with techniques reminiscent of a red scare era that had only just faded from memory. US-funded outfits like Radio Free Liberty are pitted against Russia’s RT as each nation accuses the other of waging an ever more desperate and transparent "Information War".

Part 3: Maintaining the World Order 1hr 30mins

"When the Berlin wall fell, our work wasn't finished". -- Victoria Nuland, November 2013

“Fuck the EU” -- Victoria Nuland, February 2014

While stage managing the American empire has undoubtedly proved to be a more difficult task now than in the bipolar world of the cold war era, it is not for lack of greed or hubris that the Kagans and others continue to sell their vision. Did they create these ideas because they truly believe in America's right to be the dominant force in the world? Or, do these ideas help sell weapons and control resources like oil and rare minerals? Part 3 shows interview footage of an obscure PNAC member (Thomas Donnelly) taking credit for the ominous “New Pearl Harbor” phrasing in the notorious 'Rebuilding America’s Defenses' document. But the evidence shows the genesis of the concept to be patriarch Don Kagan, in conjunction with his son Fred, in prior op-eds that call for ‘a catalyzing event’. Other newly sourced footage shows the pair advocating for a US military ground invasion of Palestine on September 12th, 2001 and displaying an unnerving prescience about the 9/11 attacks themselves.

Check Out Irwin Schiff's Extensive Website - While It's Still There

Renown tax protester Irwin Schiff died tragically in an Indiana prison yesterday. The feisty 87-year-old left quite a legacy and a lot of writings behind. There must be hundreds or even thousands of pages and files on his website. I don't know who owns the site or if it will remain, or if it will be scrapped, so now's your chance to read and download Schiff's writings and audio/video presentations. Regardless of what one thinks of his tactics or positions, Irwin Schiff gave his life for a cause he believed in. He fought in a non violent intellectual way and they killed him for it, refusing to even let him go to be with his family as he was dying of cancer. This simply reveals the brutal nature of the state. On his site, Schiff urged readers "But remember we are now dealing with the Federal Mafia and my website may be in danger, so download and save as much material as you can."

KALIBRating the foe: strategic implications of the Russian cruise missiles’ launch

The firing of cruise missiles by the Russian Navy, from the Caspian Sea, was not necessary for its military operation in Syria. However, this convincing show of force, demonstrates Russia’s technical superiority over NATO in this domain. Therefore, the so-called anti-missile shield, currently deployed by the Atlantic Alliance around Russia, is now obsolete.

A massive blow using Kalibr-NK LACMs was struck from the southwestern Caspian Sea. .
The Dagestan, a missile-armed frigate with a displacement of about 2,000 tons, acted as the flagship of the Russian naval assault force accompanied by the small missile patrol ships the Veliky Ustyug, the Grad Sviyazhsk, and the Uglich (with a displacement of about 1,000 tons).

Bombshell from Hillary's email stash: Smoking gun emails reveal Blair's 'deal in blood' with George Bush over Iraq war

The disclosure is certain to lead for calls for Sir John Chilcot to reopen his inquiry into the Iraq War if, as is believed, he has not seen the Powell memo.

A second explosive memo from the same cache also reveals how Bush used ‘spies’ in the Labour Party to help him to manipulate British public opinion in favour of the war.

The documents, obtained by The Mail on Sunday, are part of a batch of secret emails held on the private server of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton which U.S. courts have forced her to reveal.

Former Tory Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said: ‘The memos prove in explicit terms what many of us have believed all along: Tony Blair effectively agreed to act as a frontman for American foreign policy in advance of any decision by the House of Commons or the British Cabinet.

Syrian army, backed by Iranian fighters, advance south of Aleppo: monitor

Syrian troops backed by Hezbollah and Iranian fighters made advances on Saturday in their offensive to retake territory around the northern city of Aleppo from insurgents and jihadist fighters, a monitoring group said.

The campaign around Aleppo, which the army launched on Friday, is one of several assaults it has waged against rebel fighters since Russian jets began carrying out air strikes on Sept. 30 in support of President Bashar al-Assad.

It has concentrated so far on clearing rebel areas south of Aleppo rather than the city itself, which is home to 2 million people and divided between government forces and rebels.

Billionaire Donor: Rand Paul ‘Alienated Anti-Establishment Voters’ by Attacking Donald Trump

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) —
A defiant Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)is brushing off weak fundraising and weaker poll numbers as would-be donors and home state Republicans push him to abandon an uphill presidential bid to focus on his Senate re-election.

While showing some frustration, the first-term Kentucky senator this week claimed his superior political organization would prove wrong those doubting his chances in the White House contest. At the same time, he released fundraising numbers that place him squarely in the bottom tier of the GOP’s 2016 class over the last three months, a painful symbol of stalled momentum for the libertarian favorite who was considered a major presidential contender earlier in the year.

'They don't care who gets killed': Ex-drone pilot turned whistleblower to RT

What masquerades as our government here in America is really a criminal gang run by Psychopaths!

Herridge: Whistleblowers Call Out Double Standard in Hillary's Email Scandal

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another indication that the real scandals still hidden behind Hillary's server are so big, they could bring down the entire government. As a result, we see GOP members of Congress undermining the credibility of the Benghazi probe, The FBI complaining that Obama is interfering with their investigation, and Bernie Sanders dropping the email issue, even though it could remove his chief rival for the Democratic nomination! Not without as good reason are so many people of both parties trying to protect Hillary right now!

In politics, there are two kinds of secrets. There are the little secrets; the sex scandals, the bribes, which are the fodder for political infighting. Then there are the great secrets, secrets so terrible they would bring down the entire government, such as the truth behind the JFK assassination, the truth behind 9-11, and so forth. Sanders' dismissal of Hillary's email scandal was not done to protect Hillary herself, but to protect the government Sanders hopes to lead. Sanders knows that if pursued, the public will learn that behind the server itself lurks far larger scandals, such as government-sanctioned gun-running from Libya to ISIS and Al Qaeda in Syria (using that Consulate in Benghazi), and whether the weak private email server holding US secrets, coupled with a "charitable foundation" legally allowed to accept money from foreign sources, signals a repeat of the 1996 Clinton "China-gate" secrets-for-donations scandal!

Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th US President and Russia fired exactly 26 cruise missiles, after which the carrier Theodore Roosevelt withdrew from the Persian Gulf

Comment by the Saker: the big news here is that the USA has pulled the aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) out of the Persian Gulf and that, for the first time in many years, no US aircraft carrier will be patrolling these waters. In fact, there are currently no US aircraft carriers anywhere near the Middle-East. Funny fact: Theodore Roosevelt was the 26th US President and Russia fired exactly 26 cruise missiles, after which the Theodore Roosevelt withdrew. Coincidence or the the Kremlin send a message to Uncle Sam?

Israel/Palestine: A reality check

Governments and their diplomats and all who report and comment in the mainstream media must stop giving credibility to the view that a two-state solution is possible.

It isn’t. Though not yet buried it’s been dead for many years – killed by Israel’s on-going colonization of the occupied West Bank which is best described, as I have previously noted, as on-going ethnic cleansing slowly and by stealth.

Washington Post Reduces Palestinian Victims to a Word Problem

snip: Netanyahu’s vow to “settle the score” suggests a view of human life as something that can be tallied up, with deaths on one side balancing deaths on the other. If media outlets are going to present that as a legitimate perspective, they might as well acknowledge what the actual “score” is: Since 2009, according to the Israeli human rights group B’tselem, Israeli security forces have killed 636 Palestinians, with Israeli civilians killing another 14. During this time, Palestinians have killed 43 Israeli civilians, and 12 members of Israeli security forces. This does not include the Israeli military assault on the Gaza Strip in July/August 2014, during which an estimated 1,767 Palestinians died, along with 64 Israeli soldiers and two Israeli civilians.

Russia can’t bomb its way to Syria peace: Obama

US President Barack Obama has warned Russia against its fight on Daesh terrorists in Syria, saying Moscow could not “bomb their way” to a peaceful solution in the war-torn country.

“They are not going to be able to bomb their way to a peaceful situation inside of Syria,” Obama said Friday during a joint press conference with visiting South Korean President Park Geun-Hye.

Obama made the remarks after US and Russia reached a provisional deal on aerial operations in Syria to prevent mid-air clashes in the Arab country.

He said the basic understanding aimed at “de-conflicting” US and Russian military in Syria does not mean that there has been a “meeting of the minds in terms of strategy.”

Russia has stepped up its bombing campaign in support of the government of Bashar al-Assad in fight against Daesh Takfiri terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since, in the US's backing and funding of militants against Al-Assad, and arming them to destabilize Syria, Obama was attempting (allegedly, but not really) to do the same thing, how in the name of heaven can he accuse Russia, in light of the fact that they are successfully dealing with the liquidation of all jihadists, with Iranian help?!?

The man is delusional, that he would believe that he would not be caught in his own lies about Isis, Al Nusra, and Al Quaeda at some point, and the Russian government has just called him out on this.

Food Riots Are Coming As Cost Soars: “50 Million Americans Are Dealing With Food Insecurity”

Almost beyond belief, a full 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase typically buy cheap, unhealthy food and still just have enough to feed their children. The price of food continues to quickly out-pace the paychecks of most middle class families. For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $5.88 per pound! There are nearly 50 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in various degrees of distress. Just over one out of seven Americans rely on obtaining food from various banks at one point or another and these food banks are beginning to experience record shortages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how deliberately food insecurity is being pushed by this Federal Government, looking at it as the mechanism to create a tipping point, where riots will ensue, to be put down with extreme prejudice, and be used as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and impose martial law in this country.

Obamacare's Latest Casualty: Largest Health Insurer On Colorado Exchange Abruptly Collapses

This wasn't supposed to happen.

With the mainstream media, at least the majority that is left of center, flooded with story after story touting Obamacare's success, the news coming this morning from Denver that Colorado's largest nonprofit health insurer and participant in that state's insurance exchange Colorado HealthOP is abruptly shutting down, forcing 80,000 Coloradans to find a new insurer for 2016, was a slap in the face for the Obama administration's crowning achievement.

According to AP, the health insurer announced Friday that the state Division of Insurance has de-certified it as an eligible insurance company. That's because the cooperative relied on federal support, and federal authorities announced last month they wouldn't be able to pay most of what they owed in a program designed to help health insurance co-ops get established.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to be the first of many collapses of these health care exchanges, because they were ultimately engineered to look great; and then fail, utterly.

Someone in the Obama administration had to know that this was going to happen, but preferred to indulge in "magical thinking", and refused to think such a possible scenario through.

And those with Obamacare are going to see their premiums skyrocket in 2016 - if they can still afford it, and if they cannot, they will be fined.

As reported at Breitbart.com in July of last year:

Oregon Insurance Commissioner Laura N. Cali has approved premium rate increases of 25 percent for the Moda Health Plan and 33 percent for LifeWise in 2016. Due to Obamacare’s radical plan design and high utilization costs, skyrocketing American healthcare costs are becoming the norm–and will be a top issue in 2016 elections. Following the Supreme Court’s 6-3 ruling that Obamacare subsidies were legal, President Barack Obama flew to Tennessee last week in attempt to rally liberals and consumer advocates to pressure state insurance regulators to limit proposed health insurance rate increases. Obama said that if commissioners do their job and actively scrutinize rates, “my expectation is that they’ll come in significantly lower than what’s being requested.” What the President was referring to in his speech are requests by Tennessee’s healthcare insurers, led by leaders Blue Cross & Blue Shield, for average 2016 statewide healthcare insurance premium rate increases of 36.3 percent.

This Police Department May Ban People Arrested For Crimes From Public Areas

Police in North Carolina may declare parts of the Charlotte metropolitan area off-limits to people who have been arrested for crimes, The Charlotte Observer reported this week.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says it is considering whether to propose an ordinance that would create "public safety zones," in which anyone arrested for a crime would be banned from returning to the zone for a year.

The proposal is still in the development phase and would need to be approved by the city council’s community safety committee, Deputy City Attorney Mark Newbold told The Huffington Post. He added that the city has not yet determined which type of public areas would be included in this new policy. "As it sits right now, we're still at the discussion level," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Let me get this straight: people who were not convicted for crimes, but arrested for crimes, could be prevented from entering a "public safety zone" in Charlotte?!?

Apparently, the police in Charlotte have opted for "Code Napoleon" law, were the accused were considered guilty before proven innocent, and have abandoned the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

This is insane, but a creeping reality in many other cities as well.

GOOGLE, THE NSA & DHS ARE CREATING A GLOBAL DNA DATABASE

According to the Verge, Ancestry.com, is seeking permission from the FDA to create a national DNA database. Ancestry.com claims they'll use your DNA to assess your families disease risk.

Would it shock you to know that Google, the NSA and DHS are using "front companies" to create a GLOBAL DNA database?
“On the heels of our AncestryHealth launch and our one million genotyped customers milestone for AncestryDNA, we’re excited to announce this collaboration with Calico to research and develop life changing solutions,” said Ken Chahine, Executive Vice President and Head of DNA and Health. “We have laid the groundwork for this effort through the combination of an unmatched family history database, one of the fastest growing genetic databases..."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, apparently, ancestry.com is not a benign service to help one find one's ancestral roots, but a willing collaborator with the NSA and DHS to create this database.

I used to think about using this to find out more about my ancestry, but hell, - not any more! And is Ancestry.com getting permission from its clients to use their genetic information in this database?!?

I would be willing to bet, not; whether you want to or not, your genetic information will be collected by the NSA and DHS, when you send it in for ethnic analysis.

COPS PEPPER SPRAY CROWD OF SCHOOL KIDS PROTESTING A COP CAUGHT ON FILM BODY SLAMMING CHILD

At Toleman High School on Wednesday, a brief video sparked outrage showing a police officer violently arresting a 14 -year-old boy.

Police said that student was acting unruly before the incident, allegedly trying to fight another student, so they moved in. According to police, while the officer was trying to arrest the 14-year-old, the student’s 17-year-old brother attacked the officer.

The video does not show the attack; it only shows the 17-year-old boy face down on the floor. At this point, the 14-year-old approached the officer, and he’s immediately and violently slammed to the ground.

As the protest grew, the mayor got involved. “I’m asking you to put your trust in me,” Mayor Don Grebien said to the students. “I’m going to listen to you.”

According to WDAM, Grebien pleaded for the students to head back to class. He decided to meet with a few students at city hall.

As the police presence increased, so did the tension, and a window was allegedly broken.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS... is the best police can do with highschoolers?!? PEPPER SPRAY THEM?!?!? Is THIS how the Rhode Island Police interprets "To Protect and Serve"?!?

I would strongly urge every single parent of every single student at that high school to withdraw their kids immediately. Take the entire school down by completely eliminating its tax base.

Home schooling is completely legal in this state, providing that certain provisions are met.

But this behaviour from the Rhode Island police, because they felt they were "being threatened"?!? Were these people trained by the IDF?!? Because, in training with the IDF, Americans are made to feel by their police rather like the Palestinians are treated by the IDF, including our kids.

Cop shoots dead unarmed boy, 17, after the teen flashed his lights at the patrol car to signal mechanical problem - but now the officer claims he was attacked first

The devastated family of an unarmed teenage boy who was shot dead by a Michigan sheriff's deputy earlier this year after flashing his car lights at him has filed a lawsuit against the officer.

Deven Guilford, 17, was pulled over by Sgt. Jonathan Frost, of Eaton County Sheriff's Department, on a cold evening in February after flashing the officer because he believed his brights were on.

During the traffic stop, Guilford refused to put his hands behind his back or give Frost any official documents, leading to an altercation between them, according to county prosecutor Doug Lloyd.

This ended with Guilford lying dead in a snow-filled ditch, having been shot seven times by Frost.

Police Brutality and Public Trust of Law Enforcement: 1960s Vs. Today

The article below was printed in the August 31, 1967 edition of the Des Moines Register. It featured the results of a Gallup Poll regarding respect for police and the existence of police brutality.

These poll figures on police from 50 years ago provide a startling glimpse at the rise of the modern American police state.

Not quite half a century ago, and following the summer riots in Detroit and other cities across the U.S. no less, most Americans trusted and respected the police. Nearly eight out of 10 adults responded they had a “great deal” of respect for police.

Demoralized militants fleeing Daesh ranks en masse: Russia general

A senior Russian general says there has been growing discontent among Daesh militants with their command in Syria, with many of them deserting the terror group’s ranks as Moscow presses ahead with its air raids against terrorist positions in the Arab state.

On Friday, Colonel General Andrei Kartapolov, who heads operations in the Russian general staff, said “demoralized” Daesh Takfiris are now abandoning the extremist terror group “en masse” amid Moscow’s ongoing anti-terror air strikes in Syria.

"The majority of armed gangs are demoralized. Discontent with field commanders is growing amid the fighters, and there are instances of disobeying orders," he told a media briefing.

All residents aged 21 or over will no longer need a permit to carry a pistol or revolver on their person, when traveling on foot or in their vehicles. There are a few exceptions such as courthouses, schools, federal buildings, state parks, etc. But for the most part, so long as you’re legally allowed to own a firearm, you’re good to go in the State of Maine.

Showdown Tonight At a Washington High School: A Look At 3 Legal Precedents Regarding Praying At Football Games

The Constitution, moreover, demands that the school may not force this difficult choice upon these students."

Special Forces To Change ‘Free The Oppressed’ Motto After Complaints From Afghans Holding Sex Slaves

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Top Army leaders have ordered its elite Special Forces unit to change its motto from the Latin “De Opresso Liber” (To liberate the oppressed) to something that would be more culturally sensitive, after a large number of Afghans holding child sex slaves have complained.

“We want to make sure we are not offending our coalition partners and not judging them based on our own biases,” said Col. Dwight S. Barry, a Pentagon spokesperson.

In one high-profile incident, two Special Forces soldiers beat up an American-backed militia commander after they had learned he had raped a young boy and beat up his mother, a practice which goes back centuries and is perfectly normal in Afghan society. Fortunately, one of the American soldiers decided to leave the Army after the incident, while the other is being kicked out.

No matter whether in charge is a bubba from Arkansas, a sham cowboy, a sissy black, or a warmongering harebrained bitch: a stooge bears no responsibility. However indecent or heinous he might be, as long as he’s doing his Corporate Bidding, he’ll brazenly beat the rap. The rise of dissenting voices will remain offstage; unheard, ineffective. A Corporate State holds power over the citizens through the Corporate Media apparatus, which spreads scourge by shaping opinion.

Mesmerized by News channels and distracted by status quo-supporting Hollywood paradigm, Corporate Citizenry firmly believes itself to be free and safe, while shamelessly parroting events and statements it was indoctrinated to, proudly saluting its flag, listening to and thanking the Stooge-in-Chief.
