Australia Admits Recent Stellar Job Numbers Were Cooked

Two months later we find that the media, and all those mocking the government propaganda apparatus, were spot on, because moments ago today, Australia Treasury Secretary John Fraser, during testimony to parliamentary committee, admitted that jobs growth for the two months in question "may be overstated." What's the reason? The same one the propaganda bureau always uses when its lies are exposed: "technical issues", the same explanation the Atlanta Fed used in its explanation for a strangely belated release of its GDP Now estimate one month ago.

Schools: France vows to fight terror conspiracy theories

And now that massive terror-related news stories have struck France - and hard - a whole host of conspiracies have cropped up among kids eager to share the latest snippet from the internet.

And they are proving to be a growing concern for the French government desperately trying to battle radicalization among young people, who have a tendency not to believe the official version of the story.

Education Minister Najat Vallaud-Belkacem (pictured below) spent Tuesday hosting a conference on the topic of fighting the spread of conspiracies at schools.

Treasury officials wined & dined by arms giants & ‘rogue banks’

Treasury officials regularly accepted invitations to lavish dinners with lobbyists for banks that were being investigated for market rigging, a new report has found.
The explosive research, which was conducted by the National Audit Office (NAO), was published on Tuesday.

It reveals that banking lobby the British Bankers’ Association was a frequent provider of hospitality to senior Treasury officials, despite the fact some of its members were being investigated by UK authorities for market rigging.

Hillary Clinton, liar extraordinaire

If there are two things that Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton is really good at, it is raising money and, in equal measure, lying. Being so adept at both makes her the quintessential political candidate of the 21st Century.

WHILE THE CHILDREN IN FLINT WERE GIVEN POISONED WATER TO DRINK, GENERAL MOTORS WAS GIVEN A SPECIAL HOOKUP TO THE CLEAN WATER

News of the poisoned water crisis in Flint has reached a wide audience around the world. The basics are now known: The Republican governor, Rick Snyder, nullified the free elections in Flint, deposed the mayor and city council, then appointed his own man to run the city. To save money, they decided to unhook the people of Flint from their fresh water drinking source, Lake Huron, and instead, make the public drink from the toxic Flint River.

Can Tasers damage the BRAIN? Use of the 'non-lethal' weapons has been linked with symptoms similar to those seen in dementia

In the US, more than two million people have been hit with Tasers by police over the past decade and more than 9,200 in the UK since they were widely introduced in 2009.

But a new study has raised concerns about the impact that the 50,000 volt shock these 'non-lethal' weapons inflict on the human body.

Researchers, who were funded by the US Department of Justice, found the burst of electricity from stun guns can impair a person's ability to remember and process information.

Some of those who were hit by the electric weapons also showed short-term declines in cognitive function which were comparable to mild dementia.

The scientists behind the study said it raises serious questions about the ability of suspects to understand their rights and answer questions after they have been hit by a Taser.

Sloppy Language and Thinking

George Orwell said, “But if thought corrupts language, language can also corrupt thought.” Gore Vidal elaborated on that insight, saying, “As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate.” And John Milton predicted, “When language in common use in any country becomes irregular and depraved, it is followed by their ruin and degradation.” These observations bear heeding about how sloppy language is corrupting our society. -- Before we invest resources into worrying about such matters, we might focus on language corruption, because it is polluting our thinking, resulting in inept and dangerous social policies.

Local woman helps save hikers on Mount Baldy

Lisa called 911 and was told by the dispatcher that help was on the way. Two hours later, they were still waiting on the side of the steep hillside. So, she called for help several more times.
"Three times I'm told they've already picked you up," said Woll. "So, I spent another 15 minutes, 20 minutes convincing them, 'No, we're still on the side of the mountain.' Then they finally got our coordinates and they still didn't come.

COP NEVER FIRED AFTER 2 FITS OF ROAD RAGE – ON THE 3RD FIT, HE SHOT A LADY IN THE HEAD FOR HONKING

It was recently revealed in court documents that a former police officer who shot a woman in the head during a road rage incident has a history marred with violence and anger issues. Kenneth Caplan, a reserve deputy constable with Harris County Precinct 6, was charged last year with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after shooting a woman in the head during a fit of road rage.

The Federal Reserve will slash interest rates and the United States economy is on the cusp of a recession, says Peter Schiff, president and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital. -- Schiff further explained that the only way the Fed can save the U.S. economy is to cut interest rates. The Fed, says Schiff, may go as far as instituting negative interest rates.

Banning Cash: Serfdom in Our Time

Negative interest rates mean that your bank account shrinks day by day, automatically. Your $1000 in January becomes $950 by December. And where does that money go? To the banks, of course, and to the government. They syphon your money away, drip by drip, and there’s nothing you can do about it.

Liberty Activists And ISIS Will Soon Be Treated As Identical Threats

By Brandon Smith

Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing.

My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared...

Suicide Epidemic: Why Does The Number Of People Killing Themselves Just Keep Going Up?

Did you know that more Americans now die from suicide than are killed in car crashes each year? According to the CDC, there has been a substantial spike in suicide deaths in the United States in recent years. Today, approximately 9.3 million Americans admit to having suicidal thoughts, and approximately 2.7 million Americans each year actually make a plan for how they would commit suicide. We are a deeply, deeply unhappy nation, but of course this phenomenon is not just limited to America. According to the World Health Organization, suicide is now the third highest cause of death in the entire world. Globally, suicide rates have soared by 60 percent over the past 45 years, and the WHO is now projecting that by the year 2020 someone will be committing suicide somewhere in the world every 20 seconds.

“Investors Have Completely Lost Faith In Deutsche Bank” A Top 10 Shareholder Admits

After a day of “rock solid” Lehman-isms, emergency bond buyback plans, and a stock price still unable to close green, Deutsche Bank is on the ropes (despite CNBC proclaiming that “it doesn’t feel like a Lehman moment.”) However, as dawn breaks across the motherland, something more insidious is breaking for Germany’s largest bank. Deutsche faces an uphill task rescuing its stock from record lows, especially, as Reuters reports, a top 10 shareholder exclaims “investors have completely lost faith in the bank,” and a fast recovery from this crisis was unlikely.

Assault with a deadly weapon: Florida man charged with throwing alligator into Wendy’s

It takes a Captive Wildlife Permit to legally possess an alligator in the State of Florida. So begs the question, if you have a CWP and CCW, can you legally carry an alligator concealed for defensive purposes? What would be the best way to carry a concealed alligator? I for one would want some sort of strap around its mouth, removed with a thumb break to prevent accidental (discharge) mastication.

Risk appetite has waned as a selloff in major stock markets worldwide, along with a renewed tumble in crude oil prices, and worries about European banks shook confidence in the greenback.

Trump, Sanders, and Kasich Do Well. Thanks a Lot, New Hampshire.

NATIONAL REVIEW: Could this night have gone worse for Donald Trump’s foes? Sure, he could have won with 90 percent or something. But this was about as bad a result as they could reasonably fear, and about as good a result as Trump and his fans could want.

Trump’s first-place finish was easy to predict, and in line with most of the polling. In fact, the traditional New Hampshire polling surprise this year was… that the actual results didn’t offer much of a surprise. It always looked like a tightly-packed crowd of candidates from second to sixth place, and the order of finish was pretty ideal for Trump. It’s him against the crowd, and his chunk of the base – even if it’s just a new generation of Pat Buchanan’s share of the vote – will always outpace his rivals, as long as there’s a bunch of them.

Tiny Homes: Zoning Issues Forcing Owners Out of Homes

local zoning boards have become increasingly tyrannical in the way they do business, moving from protecting neighborhoods from shady builders, to trying to reshape them into their image of what America should look like. In fact, many of these so-called “local” zoning departments are now taking orders directly from the federal government, in order to reshape American neighborhoods into culturally diverse Utopias that rarely turn out as planned.

What Is The Best Method Of Rebellion Against Tyranny?

Become a local pillar rather than a mere complainer. Seek to produce results rather than demanding others do it for you. When you act, act intelligently. Be steady in your resolve and do not let anger or panic rule your thinking. Be fair in your assessments, and above all, once again, if you fight, fight to win. Fighting merely in the name of fighting is a fool’s game.

Ron Paul: This Will Be a Disaster For Personal Liberty…

Even if mandatory health screening could be implementing without increasing costs or threatening liberty it would still be a bad idea. Government health care mandates undermine the basic principles of a free society. If it is legitimate for government to tell us what types of health care we must receive, then it is also legitimate for the government to tell us what to eat, when to exercise, and even how to raise our children. To paraphrase C.S. Lewis, a tyranny imposed for our own good is the worst form of tyranny because it is a tyranny without limits. All who love liberty must therefore oppose mandatory depression screening, or any other health care mandate.

White House pushes ahead with plan to slash pensions for up to one million retirees

The Obama administration is pushing ahead with its plans to slash pension benefits for up to one million participants in “underfunded” multiemployer pension funds as part of its drive to make defined-benefit pensions a thing of the past for all US workers.

The White House campaign, carried out in a conspiracy with the major trade unions and multinational corporations, takes place in the wake of the 2013–2014 bankruptcy of Detroit, which set a precedent for slashing the legally protected pension benefits of retirees.

And yet negative interest rates – supposed to help economies recover – haven’t prevented Japan and Europe’s economies from absolutely tanking.

That is a matter of record. The responsible thing for Ted Cruz to do right now is to admit this will become a question in coming months and to take himself to court or before Congress to determine, unequivocally, whether or not he is eligible to be President of the United States, or for that matter, whether or not he is eligible to be a United States Senator.

Fusion Center Issues New Statement on Its Warning That Police Should Watch Out for Don't-Tread-on-Me Flags

Today the Utah Statewide Information and Analysis Center, a "fusion center" partly funded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, responded to the controversy over a bulletin it sent to law enforcement officers last week.

The bulletin, which was first covered here at Reason, had been distributed in anticipation of last Friday's funeral for LaVoy Finicum, the rancher killed during the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. The document warned that "[c]aravans of individuals traveling to the funeral services may be comprised of one or more armed extremists," and it displayed several "visual indicators" that an officer might be dealing with "extremist and disaffected individuals." These images ranged from the Gadsden flag (a popular patriotic symbol featuring a rattlesnake and the slogan "Don't Tread on Me") to an altered version of the skull-and-lightning-bolt logo favored by fans of the Grateful Dead.

Don’t worry. Governments will rise to the occasion and soon will be making cash illegal. People will be forced to put their money in banks or the market, thus rescuing the central governments and the central banks that are incestuously intertwined with them. Beyond that, cash is probably the last arena of personal autonomy left. It can be spent any way one pleases, with no one watching. It can be hidden from the government to avoid taxes. It can be used to engage in transactions of a semi-legal nature. It has power that the government cannot control; and that is why it has to go.

Hillary Helps a Bank—and Then It Funnels Millions to the Clintons

The Swiss bank UBS is one of the biggest, most powerful financial institutions in the world. As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton intervened to help it out with the IRS. And after that, the Swiss bank paid Bill Clinton $1.5 million for speaking gigs. The Wall Street Journal reported all that and more Thursday in an article that highlights huge conflicts of interest that the Clintons have created in the recent past.

The piece begins by detailing how Clinton helped the global bank.

The TPP If Ratified: Corporations Will Overturn U.S. Laws, Speed up Destruction of the Environment, Outsource Jobs…

In fact, the TPP is almost entirely ignored and avoided. When it’s mentioned it’s as something our authoritarian government knows better how to handle than we do. Its defenders, including President Barack Obama, present it as a way to jab a finger in China’s eye. Its opponents argue that it attacks U.S. sovereignty and benefits foreign nations. What, if anything, it does to Vietnamese workers, for example, is just not registering, and the idea of a U.S. billionaire in 2016 bringing that to public attention as a moral concern would get you mocked as a dreamer faster than Hillary Clinton changes positions when a check book is opened.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What this agreement does is corporatize government, period, end of discussion.

It should be peacefully protested by the American people, who will wind up losing jobs, and whatever rights we may still have left, under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

IF you understand that the US has already become a third world nation, particularly, in older, urban areas, where jobs have been outsourced/offshored in earnest, the ratification of the TTP will make it far worse!!

Past American appeals to Russia haven’t stopped it from aggressively escalating its support for the Syrian regime. | AP PhotoRussians lay siege to Obama's Syria strategy

As Russian-backed troops encircle the key rebel stronghold of Aleppo in Syria — a potential turning point in the Arab state’s nearly five-year-old conflict — President Barack Obama’s diplomacy-first approach is also coming under siege.
Some opposition leaders and analysts are warning that unless Obama sends a tough message to Russian President Vladimir Putin — possibly even using military force — the Moscow-supported regime of Bashar Assad will weaken the opposition so badly that peace talks being promoted by the United States will become irrelevant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the most deliciously ironic way possible, you have to love the title of this article, and how it appears to be deliberately "grooming" Americans for a war with Russia.

Thank you, Ms. Toosi, the writer of this completely disingenuous piece of codswallop, but no.

I have noticed in your bio from politico.com that you "reported" on the following:

Nahal Toosi is a foreign affairs correspondent at POLITICO. She joined POLITICO from The Associated Press, where she reported from and/or served as an editor in New York, Islamabad, Kabul and London. She was one of the first foreign correspondents to reach Abbottabad, Pakistan, after the killing of Osama bin Laden. Read more: http://www.politico.com/staff/nahal-toosi#ixzz3zhH4dbGH

However, people know that Osama bin Laden died of natural causes in the winter of 2001.

Usama bin Laden has died a peaceful death due to an untreated lung complication, the Pakistan Observer reported, citing a Taliban leader who allegedly attended the funeral of the Al Qaeda leader. "The Coalition troops are engaged in a mad search operation but they would never be able to fulfill their cherished goal of getting Usama alive or dead," the source said. Bin Laden, according to the source, was suffering from a serious lung complication and succumbed to the disease in mid-December, in the vicinity of the Tora Bora mountains. The source claimed that bin Laden was laid to rest honorably in his last abode and his grave was made as per his Wahabi belief.

Here is the narrative of the guy who got assassinated in Abbottabad, as reported at whatreallyhappened.com:

What appears to have happened is that President Obama tried to steal the Pakistanis' thunder by sending in the SEAL team to capture the body, then claim victory for the US. But as the "victory" was leaked to the press, word finally reached the White House from Abbotabad that the dead man wasn't the real Osama Bin Laden (who had died of Marfan Syndrome in December of 2001), so the body was dumped into the ocean and a flurry of hastily made (and very sloppy) fake photos leaked to the internet and members of Congress to cover up the latest monumental goof!

So, congratulations, my dear Ms. Toosi, you have just been outed as a lying whorespondent, selling the narrative of empire to a war weary and war-skeptical America.

I hope those big checks are a real salve to your professional conscience; or, perchance, have you had that surgically removed, as have so many of your colleagues?

Let me go on record saying that I do not like Basshar al Assad.

But at the end of the day, when most of the jihadis are removed, through Russian help, it is the Syrian people, and the Syrian people only, who have the right to chose their own destiny.

And I would like, as a final note, to remind you, Ms. Toosi, that during the last election in Syria, with monitors watching every voting precinct, in what was declared a free and fair election, Al-Assad won re-election in a landslide against his competition.

DANGEROUS SPEECH: WOULD THE FOUNDERS BE CONSIDERED DOMESTIC EXTREMISTS TODAY?

Not only has free speech become a four-letter word - profane, obscene, uncouth, not to be uttered in so-called public places - but in more and more cases, the government deems free speech to be downright dangerous and in some instances illegal.

The U.S. government has become particularly intolerant of speech that challenges the government’s power,reveals the government’s corruption, exposes the government’s lies, and encourages the citizenry to push back against the government’s many injustices.

Indeed, there is a long and growing list of the kinds of speech that the government considers dangerous enough to red flag and subject to censorship, surveillance, investigation and prosecution: hate speech, bullying speech, intolerant speech, conspiratorial speech, treasonous speech, threatening speech, incendiary speech, inflammatory speech, radical speech, anti-government speech, right-wing speech, extremist speech, etc.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist who never advocates violence, but advocates for good faith negotiations and logic as most generally the best answers to geopolitical problems, even I could be arrested, under the NDAA, and thrown into prison indefinitely, with no due process whatsoever.

I have to wonder what the founding Fathers - and the women who loved them, like Abigail Adams, the wife of John Adams - would think about that.

?We contacted you a couple of weeks ago to ask for your help to oppose a bad bill, SB 162, which implements vaccine mandates for all hospital employees having patient contact starting in 2017. SB 162 is authored by Sen. Patricia Miller and Sen. James Arnold. House Sponsors are Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer and Rep. Charlie Brown. There have been some very concerning developments with this bill requiring your immediate communication with your legislators.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how generous big pharma's overt, and covert, campaign contributions were to the campaigns of Rep. Cindy Kirchhofer and Rep. Charlie Brown, in order to get that bill passed.

Were I a medical professional in Indiana, I would be resigning, voting with my feet, and moving to a state where health care professionals had a choice about getting vaccinated.

ERDOGAN THREATENED TO ‘OPEN DOORS TO GREECE AND BULGARIA’ AND FLOOD EU WITH MIGRANTS – REPORT

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan threatened to “put refugees on buses” and flood Europe with migrants if EU leaders did not offer him enough cash to help curb the influx of asylum seekers, a leaked record of a high-level meeting claims.

"We can open the doors to Greece and Bulgaria anytime and we can put the refugees on buses,” Erdogan was quoted as telling European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and European Council President Donald Tusk after being told that the EU was offering Turkey €3 billion over two years.

The minutes of the meeting that apparently took place in November in Antalya have been published by the Greek financial news website euro2day.gr

After Tusk mentioned the difficult situation in the European Union, Erdogan, who reportedly demanded €6 billion over two years, said: “So how will you deal with refugees if you don't get a deal? Kill the refugees?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "truth"?!?!?

This hubristic, strutting popinjay wouldn't know the truth if it approached him to embrace him, gently.

And the truth here is, between Russian sanctions, after Turkey downed that Russian fighter, and Erdogan's refusal to allow Kurds to become a viable part of Turkey's political process, Turkey could well be looking at a looming civil war, tearing the country completely apart.

And that... is the truth.

Cops Recording Your Every Move For 10 Weeks Doesn't Violate The Constitution

A federal appeals court on Monday ruled it is not unconstitutional for law enforcement to set up a camera on a public utility pole and record a suspect's moves for 10 weeks straight.

Such warrantless recording is permitted, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit said, because people have "no reasonable expectation of privacy in video footage recorded by a camera that was located on top of a public utility pole and that captured the same views enjoyed by passersby on public roads."

The ruling stemmed in part from a nasty, years-long confrontation between two Tennessee brothers and local police -- long-simmering bad blood that led to shootouts, officer deaths and ultimately a criminal trial that ended in acquittals for the brothers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, according to current judicial rulings, Americans have no right of privacy...ANYWHERE.

Phones and other electronic devices are constantly surveilled, even without warrants, using what are called "stingray" devices, and to what end?!?

I frankly despise a government which constantly characterises me as "the enemy" when I am simply living my life, and doing nothing wrong or illegal; and right now, that is how America's Federal Government views all of us.

7 FAMOUS BRANDS THAT USE CHILD SLAVES TO MAKE YOUR CHOCOLATE

Children younger than 15 – some as young as 5 – work from 6 am till evening in West Africa at cocoa farms connected to Nestlé, Hershey, Mars, Kraft, ADM Cocoa, Godiva, and Fowler’s Chocolate to produce your favorite chocolates including Reese’s, Kit Kat, M&M’s, MilkyWay and Butterfinger. In September 2015, three class action lawsuits brought in California accused Nestlé, Hershey, and Mars of turning a blind eye to human rights abuses by cocoa suppliers in West Africa while falsely portraying themselves as socially and ethically responsible. Nestlé, Cargill and ADM are currently facing a separate lawsuit brought by three Malian former child slaves in 2005 that accuses the companies of aiding and abetting child slavery in Côte d’Ivoire’s cocoa market.

France Channel 2 Uses Russian MoD Videos to Claim Own Successes

The TV channel France 2 has illustrated the "progress of French aviation" in Syria using footage of air strikes inflicted by the aircraft of the Russian air force. The recording of a program was replicated on social networks.

The presentation of France 2, which blogger Timofey Vasiliev published on his Facebook, spoke about the large number of dead Syrian civilians because of the actions of the Russian airforce. No evidence for this was given, but the journalist said that the French aviation works more precisely.

Vasiliev wrote that in the news story, Russia was accused of using "unguided" bombs that lead to large civilian casualties, but France, working in a coalition, "successfully" destroyed terrorists of "Islamic State".

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree

A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries. Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.

On Saturday, Clinton spoke candidly about the difficulties and double-standards she faces as a female politician — a topic she rarely addresses other than to promote the historic nature of her candidacy.

“The fact is I do have a somewhat narrower path that I try to walk and I do think sometimes it comes across as a little more restrained, a little more careful, and I am sure that is true,” Clinton said during a town hall in Henniker, New Hampshire. “I am who I am, I can’t do some sort of personality transformation.”

Overwhelming Majority of Americans Believe that Both Parties Are Too Corrupt to Change Anything … Want a Revolution

We’ve previously noted that polls show that Americans are in a “pre-revolutionary” mood, that less than 1 in 5 Americans think that the government has the “consent of the governed”, that government corruption tops the list of Americans’ fears, and that 3 times as many Americans supported King George during the Revolutionary War than support our OWN Congress today.

You might assume that such statements are over-the-top … or that the results come from partisan pollsters.

But a group of Republican and Democratic pollsters and political strategists reviewed polling data last week, and revealed some stunning results:

California renter apocalypse: Why the rise in housing values is a reflection of a disappearing middle class. California rents up 5.7 percent last year.

The rise in rents and home prices is adding additional pressure to the bottom line of most California families. Home prices have been rising steadily for a few years largely driven by low inventory, little construction thanks to NIMBYism, and foreign money flowing into certain markets. But even areas that don’t have foreign demand are seeing prices jump all the while household incomes are stagnant. Yet that growth has hit a wall in 2016, largely because of financial turmoil. We’ve seen a big jump in the financial markets from 2009. Those big investor bets on real estate are paying off as rents continue to move up. For a place like California where net homeownership has fallen in the last decade, a growing list of new renter households is a good thing so long as you own a rental. The problem of course is that household incomes are not moving up and more money is being siphoned off into an unproductive asset class, a house.

Erdogan: US Must Choose Between Turkey and Syrian Kurds

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan today issued an angry condemnation after US envoy to he ISIS War Brett McGurk visited the Syrian Kurdish city of Kobani, asking how he could trust the US while they associate with the “terrorists in Kobani.”

Erdogan went on to warn that the US is ultimately going to have to choose whether its partner is Turkey or the Syrian Kurds. The State Department didn’t directly address this, simply saying they view the Kurdish PKK as “a terrorist organization.”

The US has long said that of the PKK, but is overtly backing the Kurdish YPG in northern Syria. Turkey insists that the two are essentially the same group, and at times Erdogan and other top Turkish leaders have also claimed the PKK and YPG are the same as ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By not involving the Kurds in a rational, political process inside Turkey, Edrogan may well be looking at generating a civil war inside his own country. As reported in last November's huffpo:

Would it have been better if the AKP hadn't won a majority in Turkey's elections Sunday? Based on the mood of those who don't support President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the AKP, you would think so. But the truth is, it wouldn't have made much difference. Against Erdogan's authoritarianism, only relentless persistence and a true alternative will one day prevail. The AKP won because Erdogan used two dirty weapons. One: violence against the Kurdish political movement, including the armed PKK. And two: authoritarianism. He killed civilians in the Kurdish majority Southeast during day-long curfews and "operations," bombed the PKK in Turkey and in the Qandil mountains in Iraq, jailed democratically elected mayors, didn't do anything to prevent violence against offices and rallies of the HDP (the leftist party rooted in the Kurdish movement) and increased the pressure on newspapers not yet under his control. And it worked -- he won 49 percent of the vote. Not that it has anything to do with democracy whatsoever, of course. The victory is soaked in suppression and blood. And the chance that Erdogan has had enough now is small. More media will be raided. Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu vowed to fight the PKK until the last man is standing, and Erdogan outright denied an agreement between the Kurds and the state reached earlier this year. The war rhetoric to gain votes didn't change to talk of peace after the majority was won back: Erdogan hurried to rant against the PKK in his first address after the polling stations closed.

What Edrogan wants to see happen to the Kurds is genocide, plain and simple.

To say that this guy is a loose cannon is like saying the Titanic hit a little ice. He appears to be getting more and more unhinged every day, and I do not believe that the Turkish Constitution has an element in it like the the 25th Amendment to the American Constitution, which provides for the removal of a President if he or she, for mental or physical reasons, is no longer able to carry out their duties.

Also, the fact that this country holds NATO status right now is more than a little scary. NATO was supposed to be a collection of democratic countries, but the anti-democratic bias of the last election in Turkey means that we have a dictatorship in this country, masquerading as a democracy.

To take the heat off of him for his domestic persecution of the Kurds, he may well haul off and attack Syria on his own (and the US may be impotent to stop him); if Russia counter attacks, he could well invoke Article 5 of the NATO Charter, which, through treaty, forces NATO members to come to each other's aid, if attacked by Russia.

That was very much how World War I started, due to treaty obligations.

IF I were John Kerry right now, understanding what a loose cannon and geopolitical liability Erdogan has become, because of the desperate situation into which he has put his country's economy, starting with shooting down a Russia fighter last year which resulted in Russian sanctions against Turkey, I would be on the phone with Edrogan right now, telling him to cool it.

CRISIS HOT UKRAINE’S ECONOMIC MINISTER RESIGNS, CITING HIGH-LEVEL CORRUPTION

This is what happens when an honest man, with high ideals, gets caught up in a US-controlled crony operation.

Ukraine’s minister for economic development and trade, Aivaras Abromavi?ius , a financial expert who was brought in to help Kiev with reforms, has announced his resignation, citing financial corruption at top levels of the state.

“Neither me, nor my team have any desire to serve as a cover-up for the covert corruption, or become puppets for those who, very much like the ‘old’ government, are trying to exercise control over the flow of public funds,” Abromavi?ius said in his official statement on Wednesday.
His ministry’s reform efforts have been “paralyzed” by the “concrete actions” of certain officials and groups, Abromavi?ius said, adding that he has been pressured by the president’s administration to appoint “questionable individuals” to his team or to key positions in state-owned enterprises.

NEW BILL MAY FORCE POLITICIANS TO GET DRUG TESTED

West Virginia just joined a number of other states in proposing to drug test welfare recipients, despite studies proving such testing does nothing but waste taxpayer money. So, a legislator in that state devised the ideal counter-measure: mandatory drug testing for lawmakers.

House Delegate Shawn Fluharty has now introduced a bill requiring legislators to be tested for drugsbefore each voting session — and those who fail would be prohibited from voting and denied pay.
“I think the public expects us to adhere to the rules that we try to legislate,” said Fluharty in an interview with WTRF. “We have 134 people down here and we should be on their dime living within the standards that we implement. There’s no reason we shouldn’t do it.”

While drug testing those who receive welfare was initiated in several states ostensibly hoping to catch users and abusers to kick them off public assistance, thereby saving substantial cash, it hasn’t worked out that way — not even close.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I really think this should happen at the national level; drug testing on politicians, that is!!! :-)

Baby Taken Off Hospice After Being Given Cannabis Oil – Now the Govt is Taking it Away From Her

By Matt Agorist

Last year, Meagan and Brandon Holt’s daughter Maddie, who suffers from a rare and debilitating disease called Zellweger Syndrome, was given only a short time to live, and her family was forced to do what no family can ever imagine – put a 2-year-old in hospice care...

But then something amazing happened. Meagan began researching the effects of cannabis on intractable, or untreatable epilepsy.

Being in Washington state, where medical and recreational marijuana is legal, Meagan got authorization, and then a beautiful group of people began donating whole plant cannabis extract to their family.

From the first dose, Meagan says, they immediately noticed a positive shift in her health...

But all this hope would quickly be brought to an end thanks to a law that makes it illegal for growers to share cannabis with families like Meagan and Maddie who need this powerful medicine...

TPP Deal Just Signed: Paves Way for Authoritarian Technocracy

Beware TPP. It's nothing more than the further formalization of the worst part of the 20th century: The warfare/welfare state.

It's just been signed in New Zealand by the 12 negotiating parties and now US President Barack Obama is pressuring Congress to get it passed quickly. Obama wants it passed so that the US will be able to "write the rules of the road in the 21st century," enabling it to shape global trade to its own advantage.

Obama is nothing but a puppet for Western banking interests that want to disguise and expand their growing global control via TPP. It will be a disaster that places multinational corporations on an equal footing with nation-states.

TPP is an authoritarian exercise that further solidifies various kinds of global "bigness" while squeezing out the average citizen.

Presidential executive actions spur gun sales locally, sheriff, dealers say

"It's going to have an impact on sales. They're through the roof," Cape Girardeau County Sheriff John Jordan said of the executive actions. "They are scared of this president. ... People have had the rights to sell guns as an individual for 200 years."

Why Iowa Was a Voter-Fraud Circus

These obvious anomalies in Iowa quickly stacking up in just the first state contest deciding which party candidate will get the presidential nomination reminds us of the anomalies that invariably surface after every state sponsored terrorism false flag. The governments’ official narrative lies always fail miserably to conceal the lowdown truth. The corruption and criminality characterizing today’s US federal government crime cabal operating currently in Washington undoubtedly has to be the worst and most blatant in recorded American history. But then in the rise and fall of all known civilizations and empires throughout human history, this same final stage of unprecedented immoral and perverse decay occurs like clockwork just prior to their epic collapse as they crumble and crash to the ground. So why would the US Empire in all its present day depravity be any different? It isn’t, and it’s now tumbling down at freefall speed.

The entire world is about to get hammered and the average person on the street is the one who will pay the price, as is usually the case. We can expect more losses in markets, more losses in jobs and more losses to freedom as governments and central banks point the finger at everyone but themselves.

Are The US Payroll Jobs Reports Merely Propaganda Statements? — Paul Craig Roberts

The financial presstitutes do not explore these issues. They merely report the numbers that the official releases emphasize and ask no questions about them. Therefore, the decline in American economic prospects receives no attention. The Federal Reserve can even report that half of American 25 year-olds live at home with their parents without causing alarm. They do this not from choice but from necessity. They simply cannot find jobs that pay enough to support an independent existence. You would think that this would be an issue of national concern.

Censorship Around the World Still at High Levels

Censorship is still a big issue around the world. Censorship remains at high levels in many countries, despite the fact that we tend to think we live in a world without that much of it (at least in the so-called “enlightened and developed West”). Why are censorship levels so high? There can really only be one reason for it in the end: our so-called “authorities” are afraid of free thought, free speech and the free flow of information. Why? Because it would uncover their secrets, expose their corruption, contradict their fake narratives, dissolve mental structures and undo notions of citizen obedience and civic duty that have been drilled into us since birth, mainly through military- and Rockefeller-influenced education.

Everyone in Hillary’s Inner-Circle Lawyers-Up; FBI Quickly Closing In on Hillary

Here’s the problem with Hillary's most recent version of the story… which is about the 12th version by the way: Senior officials at the FBI came out today and said the FBI does NOT even conduct “security reviews.” They conduct CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS!

As you’ll see in the video below, adding to Hillary’s nightmare is the fact that the FBI recently contacted all the members of her ‘inner, inner circle’ about her emails; every single one of them lawyered up. Current FBI Director James Comey has already threatened to take the evidence against Hillary public if Loretta Lynch at the Department of Injustice does not indict Clinton, and thus far the FBI has been silent, so that suggests even though there hasn’t been an indictment yet, the FBI still believes one to be forthcoming…

‘I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding’ – Trump at debates

I've had enough of this little phony. First he says he will have Canadian Ted Cruz as his Veep. Now he comes out for torture. This guy jumped the shark. He is buddy's with Netanyahu. This is the Neocon Stealth Candidate.
People in the alternative media who support this Neocon IDIOT better take another look at The Donald! Once again we have been had!

The Republican debates have wrapped up in New Hampshire, with some formidable bickering, topped by poll leader Donald Trump’s comment that he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding.”

Trump is also the person who recently in November said he does not care if torture doesn’t work, because “they deserve it anyway.”

Here Comes WHO: Zika Hype Goes Global

snip: Here’s what we are not told: the Zika virus was first isolated in 1947 and is associated with fever, rash and joint pain which usually lasts 2-7 days and does not result in death. It has never been associated with microcephaly. There has been a minor increase in microcephaly cases reported in Brazil but also a massive over-reporting of potential cases. And there has been no demonstration of a link between Zika and microcephaly.

Costco shopper who broke leg after shoving receipt checker loses lawsuit seeking $610,000

Jurors deliberated for about two hours before reaching a verdict. They found 9-3 that Holsclaw didn't unlawfully restrain Walls' "freedom of movement." And although jurors found 11-1 that McClaskey "committed a battery" by breaking Walls' leg, jurors also found 11-1 that McClaskey's use of force was justified.

Unarmed and Afraid in a Gun Free Zone

There are places in America where is ILLEGAL…actually AGAINST THE LAW…to save the life of someone who is in danger. Yes, you read that correctly. Imagine it being a crime to act as a first responder inside a first-aid-free zone. Politicians have passed laws that say “a person who possesses the instruments and skills to save lives may not, under threat of legal action, use their training and tools in these protected-zones”. Does that sound ridiculous to you? Well, it does to me too. But, that is EXACTLY the reality of so-called “gun-free” zones.

It’s called the “Providing Opportunities for Savings, Transactions, and Lending” Act, abbreviated as… wait for it… the POSTAL Act. And it provides explicit authorization for them to provide banking services including checking and savings accounts, money transfers, and “other basic financial services as the Postal Service deems appropriate in the public interest.” -- Bank of the Post Office. It’s incredible when you think about it.

The 200 Rulers of Global Finance

There has been an economic coup d’état in America and most of the world. We are now ruled by about 200 unelected central bankers, monetary apparatchiks and their minions and megaphones on Wall Street and other financial centers. Unlike Senator Joseph McCarthy, I actually do have a list of their names. They need to be exposed, denounced, ridiculed, rebuked and removed.

Hillary misleading about email probe during debate, former FBI agents say

In the New Hampshire debate with Senator Bernie Sanders, which aired on MSNBC, Clinton told moderator Chuck Todd that nothing would come of the FBI probe, “I am 100 percent confident. This is a security review that was requested. It is being carried out.”

Not true says Steve Pomerantz, who spent 28 years at the FBI, and rose from field investigative special agent to the rank of assistant director, the third highest position in the Bureau.

“They (the FBI) do not do security reviews,” Pomerantz said. “What they primarily do and what they are clearly doing in this instance is a criminal investigation.”

Risking World War III in Syria

Defense Secretary Ashton Carter last October said in a little noticed comment that the United States was ready to take “direct action on the ground” in Syria. Vice President Joe Biden said in Istanbul last month that if peace talks in Geneva failed, the United States was prepared for a “military solution” in that country. The peace talks collapsed on Wednesday even before they began. A day later Saudi Arabia said it is ready to invade Syria while Turkey is building up forces at its Syrian border.
