Ammunition now plentiful one year after mass shortages

About a year ago, ammunition shortages were causing fear and panic in the gun community, especially after news came out of the Department of Homeland Security’s purchase of over one billion rounds for government use. Additionally, the continuous message being made to honest Americans by politicians like President Obama, former NYC Governor Michael Bloomberg, and a host of others that new gun laws and restrictions were headed down the pike, caused many of the 90 million strong gun owners to hoard ammunition for fear it would no longer be plentiful.

How safe is your Money? Five Major U.S. Banks Hacked this month

The FBI is investigating five major bank security breaches this month that experts think may have come from state-sponsored hackers in Russia. The attacks, which happened earlier this month, gave hackers access to gigabytes of checking and savings account data that could be used to drain accounts.

Not safe in the banks regardless, but more reason to keep ONLY WHAT YOU NEED in there for bills etc...

Government propaganda and the enslavement of humanity

As we move through 2014 and beyond, humanity stands in awe of government propaganda, engineered narratives and ongoing scaremongering. With part of humanity awakened to the control system’s tactics, many of us are locked in focus mode, brainstorming new ways of exposing the ongoing propaganda. No sooner do we expose one false flag, when another is engineered. There is enough lies and propaganda to confuse an entire generation if you are not paying attention.

Erdogan takes office as Turkey president

Recep Tayyip Erdogan is officially sworn in as Turkey’s new president after winning the country’s first-ever popular vote for the head of state.

Erdogan, who served as prime minister for three consecutive terms, took the oath of office during a special session of the parliament on Thursday.

“In my capacity as President of the Republic, I swear upon my honor and repute before the great Turkish nation and before history to safeguard the existence and independence of the state,” he said at the swearing-in ceremony.

Lawmakers from the mainstream opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) walked out of the session before Erdogan took his oath.

'No Russian troops in Ukraine': Moscow's OSCE rep responds to Kiev's claims

The OSCE was told there was no Russian presence spotted across the Ukraine border, refuting Thursday's claims that a full-scale invasion was underway. Both the Ukrainian monitoring team head and Russia's representative have given a firm 'no.'

The chorus of allegations about Russia's military invasion of Ukraine had President Poroshenko calling for an emergency meeting of the country’s security and defense council, while Prime Minister Yatsenyuk on Thursday called for a Russian asset freeze.

No actual evidence has been given either by either foreign governments or the media, apart from claims that photographs exist that someone had "seen."

Is America Becoming a Third World Country?

Ted Baumann
Activist Post

I often ask myself: “Is America becoming a Third World country?” I’ve traveled all over the world and seen the ins and outs of developed and undeveloped nations, observing economic and political structures that work and many that don’t. And what I too often see in the Third World — it’s that fair and equal treatment under the law often goes amiss...

Washington Sabotages Russian/Ukrainian Summit

On Monday, Vladimir Putin and Petro Poroshenko met in Minsk. It was their first official bilateral meeting. They discussed relevant geopolitical issues. Key is resolving Southeastern Ukraine’s ongoing conflict.
Putin urges doing it peacefully. Poroshenko’s continues war without mercy. He deplores democracy. He wants freedom fighting self-defense forces crushed. He wants unchallenged hardline rule.
He lied saying his visit was “to stop the bloodshed and to start the process of finding a political compromise. The interests of the people of Donbass should and will be taken into account.”
His actions speak louder than words. Peace is an executive decision away. He can make it by calling off his dogs. He can choose diplomacy over confrontation. He can order a ceasefire. He can do so straightaway. He can meet face-to-face with Southeastern Ukrainian leaders. He can respect their democratic credentials. He can listen to their demands.

Hate Speech from a Christian (sic) Organization

The demand conveyed in the above box is plastered on top of the most non-Christian web site on the internet: CUFI, Christians United for Israel. Would that it would read: Christians United for Isolation of Israel, then it would offer a Christian message of a peaceful means to stop genocide in Palestine. The very thought that an organization could call itself Christian and demand that Christians support the wanton slaughter of children and mothers and fathers caught like animals in a cage and mercilessly shot to death borders on the actions of human madness. What ministers of god would dare such mendacity in Christ’s name? How abhorrent.

Israel lobby eliminates another critic

The United States, wallowing in arrogance and hubris, pretends to be “the world’s sole superpower,” the “exceptional and indispensable nation” chosen by history to exercise hegemony over the world.

In truth, the US is the two-bit punk puppet of the Israel Lobby. If the Zionist government orders Washington to eat dog excrement, Washington eats it.

Not even the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the US Military could get the facts acknowledged that Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in 1967, which made casualties of most of the crew, was not a “mistake,” but the intentional act of destruction of a US Navy vessel and its crew.

Not even state universities in the hinterlands of America are independent of the Israel Lobby, which can determine tenure and hiring decisions independently of the decisions of faculty and deans.

The Time Is Ripe For A False-Flag Attack On American Soil

Brandon Smith
Activist Post

Government engineered false-flag terrorism is a historically established fact. For centuries, political and financial elites have been sinking ships, setting buildings on fire, assassinating diplomats, overthrowing elected leaders, and blowing people up, then blaming these disasters on convenient scapegoats so that they can induce fear in the public and transfer more power to themselves.

Skeptics might argue whether certain calamities have been proven beyond a reasonable doubt to be false-flag events, but no one can argue that such tactics have not been used by the establishment in the past. Governments have openly admitted to creating bloody and catalyzing tragedies under false pretenses, like Operation Gladio, a false-flag program in Europe supported by European and American covert agencies which lasted decades, from the 1950s to the 1990s...

Elizabeth Warren finally speaks on Israel/Gaza, sounds like Netanyahu

The last time Elizabeth Warren was asked about her views on the Israeli attack on Gaza – on July 17 – she, as Rania Khalek put it, “literally ran away” without answering. But last week, the liberal Senator appeared for one of her regularly scheduled “office hours” with her Massachusetts constituents, this one in Hyannis, and, as a local paper reported, she had nowhere to run.

One voter who identified himself as a Warren supporter, John Bangert, stood up and objected to her recent vote, in the middle of the horrific attack on Gaza, to send yet another $225 million of American taxpayer money to Israel for its “Iron Dome” system. Banger told his Senator: “We are disagreeing with Israel using their guns against innocents. It’s true in Ferguson, Missouri, and it’s true in Israel . . . The vote was wrong, I believe.” To crowd applause, Bangert told Warren that the money “could have been spent on infrastructure or helping immigrants fleeing Central America.”

Breaking: CDC whistleblower’s contact censored

The journal Translational Neurodegeneration has removed Brian Hooker’s analysis of the vaccine-autism connection from its website—after having published it.

CDC whistleblower William Thompson contacted Hooker months ago to tell him that yes, the CDC had committed egregious fraud in 2004, when it gave the MMR vaccine a free pass.

Based on information Thompson sent him, plus FOIA requests, Hooker put together a re-analysis of the 2004 CDC data and concluded: the vaccine causes great harm; there is a connection between the vaccine and autism; and African-American male babies are at a 300% increased risk of autism from the vaccine.

This is what the journal Translational Neurodegeneration published—and this is what it took down and censored this morning.

Measles-mumps-rubella vaccination timing and autism among young african american boys: a reanalysis of CDC data

A significant number of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder suffer a loss of previously-acquired skills, suggesting neurodegeneration or a type of progressive encephalopathy with an etiological basis occurring after birth. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectof the age at which children got their first Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine on autism incidence. This is a reanalysis of the data set, obtained from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), used for the Destefano et al. 2004 publication on the timing of the first MMR vaccine and autism diagnoses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the report by Brian Hooker which Translational Neurodegeneration has removed from their servers after the whistle was blown regarding the CDC's cover-up of the link between vaccines and autism.

Mercury/vaccines/autism: more fraud at the CDC

Tommy’s thrust, of course, was to exonerate mercury in vaccines and give these vaccines a free pass. Which he eventually did, in the final version of a study published three times.

In the Simpsonwood transcript, the real explosion comes on page 43. No one, to my knowledge, has emphasized this enough.

On page 43, a Dr. Rapin asks Tommy a basic question:

“How did they make these diagnoses [of neuro-developmental delay, aka neurological damage, in the children you’re tracking]?”

Tommy replies: “What I am presenting to you now is just the results of the automated data. That means I don’t know anything about how these diagnoses were made…[but later in my presentation we’ll be in a] better position, at least for some of the outcomes [of neuro-developmental delay] to tell you how they were diagnosed.”

Translation. The whole presentation has just fallen apart.

CDC scientific fraud: an update on Dr. Poul Thorsen who authored fraudulent study 'disproving' vaccine-autism connection and stole millions of dollars

The very legitimacy of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a trustworthy safeguard of public health hangs in the balance as evidence continues to emerge about rampant deception, fraud and even money laundering within the agency. Specifically with regard to vaccines and autism, key players involved in the propaganda campaign to deny this link are now being exposed as liars working on behalf of the vaccine industry.

One such liar is Dr. Poul Thorsen, a Danish scientist who was indicted for stealing millions of dollars from the CDC and using it to cover up vaccine dangers. Thorsen, as you may recall, was heavily involved in producing a stream of fraudulent studies that supposedly "disproved" the now-evident link between vaccines and autism. The CDC has also continually cited Thorsen's studies as "evidence" that vaccines are safe, declaring the debate to be over in light of their findings.

18 Signs That The Obama Administration Is Openly Hostile To The Military

Has there ever been an administration that has had more disdain for the U.S. military than the Obama administration? The way that this administration treats our veterans and the way that this administration is gutting our armed forces is absolutely shameful. As you will read about below, Obama and his minions have been purging the military of officers that do not agree with their agenda, they have labeled veterans returning from overseas wars as “potential terrorists”, and they have turned our military into a playground for political correctness and social experiments. Not that Obama has been afraid to use the military. In fact, he has sent troops more places than just about any other president in U.S. history. He is running our brave men and women into the ground at the same time that he is relentlessly reducing the size of the Army, Navy and Air Force.

Column: Local government funds vacationing in Israel

Congratulations to Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel for further instilling the AIPACer ideology in Ohio government. Now, Ohio municipal and school administrators will quit complaining about the cessation of state funding.

The cessation of local funding has created surpluses in the Ohio treasury. Consequently, Mandel has increased transfers of Ohio money to Israel. The 2013 transfers amount to $26 million; the 2014 transfers exceed $48 million. Ohio holds $109 million of Israeli bonds which have a significant default risk. Ohio administrators should now be placated, with the knowledge that their lost revenue has gone to Israel, our allied theocracy.

In an Aug. 8 Washington Times advertisement for Israeli bonds, Mandel adroitly explains why Ohio is holding the $109 million of Israeli bonds. Cynics may question why Mandel is promoting investment in Israel instead of investment in Ohio. For Mandel, that question is unfair, since it goes to the essence of his AIPAC ideology

Kiev Forces Defeated in East Ukraine. Could Obama’s Legacy Be Destroyed by His Ukraine Policy?

The Ukrainian Government that the Obama Administration installed after Obama’s successful coup d’etat in Ukraine is now crashing and burning in the process of the newly installed Government’s ethnic-cleansing program to get rid of the people in Ukraine’s southeast, the area of Ukraine that had voted overwhelmingly for the President whom the Obama Administration (the State Department and the CIA) had overthrown in February.

The residents there rejected this new Government; this new Government is trying to exterminate them; and the local rebel-fighters against that are winning, and are decimating thousands of troops who were sent in to kill them and their families, and are shooting down many of the bombers that have been sent in to bomb them.

Christopher Bollyn - "The Islamic State and John McCain"

Why has Sen. John McCain supported the gang of terrorists who behead innocent American journalists? Why is a leader from the U.S. Congress meeting with and supporting groups of mad-dog fanatics in the Middle East; the very same groups who we now find ourselves at war with?

Christopher Bollyn - "John McCain and the Zionist Crime Syndicate"

Sen. John McCain is the most active supporter of the Zionist war agenda in the U.S. Congress.

Liberty in 1967 and other treasonous and criminal activity by the senator from Arizona, who was then the Republican party's candidate for president.

To understand why Sen. McCain puts his support for the Zionist crime syndicate ahead of what's best for the American people it is essential to understand who supports John McCain. The following paragraphs from Guilt by Association make that quite clear:

“We are not going to be diverted by these things,” Sharif said on Wednesday, referring to calls for his resignation by thousands of protesters camped outside the parliament during the crisis which erupted two weeks ago.

The statement comes as cleric Muhammad Tahir ul-Qadri issued on August 25 a 48-hour deadline for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to step down. . .

This process, called inversion, has been occurring more and more often, despite the fascistic suggestion by President Obama that headquartering outside the United States represents a betrayal of God and country. Members of the Obama administration have taken to labeling business inversions a lack of “economic patriotism” – presumably under the assumption that to stay in America, cut jobs, and lose all profits in order to pay higher taxes represents a sort of higher moral value than moving one’s headquarters and continuing to pay millions of workers and reward consumers with better and cheaper products.

For the casual observer, the crisis in Libya has spun beyond comprehension.

Nor do the equally binary “Islamist versus secularist” or “liberal versus conservative” models fully apply in Libya where there are no “seculars” or real liberals to speak of.

Instead, what we have is numerous factions with different international and domestic connections, varying goals and competing interests. It is a complex picture of Islamists, organised crime, ultra-conservatives and traditionalists.

The video, reproduced courtesy of Middle East Eye, outlines briefly the political turmoil that has wracked Libya since the overthrow of Gaddafi in 2011 and culminated in the seizure and destruction of Tripoli airport by Islamist militias on 23 August 2014.

America’s Corrupt Institutions — Paul Craig Roberts

Judges prefer plea bargains despite the fact that plea bargains amount to self-incrimination, because plea bargains dispense with time-consuming trials that cause backed-up and crowded court dockets. Trials also demand far more work on the part of a judge than accepting a plea bargain.

The fact of the matter is that in America today you are expected to convict yourself. Even your lawyer expects it. The torture is not physical; it is psychological. The system is severely biased against the defendant. Conviction by a jury brings a much heavier sentence than conviction by a deal that the defendant’s attorney negotiates with the prosecutor’s office. All the prosecutor wants is a conviction. Give him his conviction for his record as an effective prosecutor, and you get off lighter.

The injustice lies in the fact that the rule applies to the innocent as well as to the guilty.
The prosecutor and often the judge do not care whether you are innocent or guilty, and your lawyer knows that it does not matter to the outcome.

This Is Outrageous — Toxic Decayed Meat Being Sold As “Fresh”

This toxic practice makes seriously decayed meat look fresh for weeks and is banned in many countries including the European Union and Japan.

Many consumers are unaware that over 70% of beef and chicken in the United States and Canada is treated with poisonous carbon monoxide gas and the FDA allows it, despite the known public health risks.

A bill was introduced in Congress that would require the labeling of meat that has been treated with carbon monoxide but it was never enacted and the topic was swept under the rug entirely. [Bill: H.R. 3115 (110th) introduced on July 19, 2007; never enacted.]

This practice makes meat appear and smell fresh even when contaminated with harmful bacteria such as Clostridium botulinum, Salmonella, Campylobacter, and E-coli 0157:H7.

Natural News EXCLUSIVE: Bombshell email from CDC whistleblower reveals criminality of vaccine cover-up as far back as 2002

CDC scientists who conspired to commit scientific fraud in order to obscure the link between the MMR vaccine and autism knew that they might have been engaged in criminal acts as far back as 2002, documents now show. (Journalists and bloggers, please cite Natural News as the source for this investigative story which the mainstream media has utterly refused to cover.

Will Republicans Block Action On Corporations Abandoning The U.S.?

There is legislation before Congress to do something about corporations renouncing their US "citizenship." The odds are that Republicans will block it -- and not just because they have obstructed everything else.

There is a wave of news about corporations using a technicality called an "inversion" to renounce their US "citizenship." An inversion is when a US company buys or merges with a non-US company, and then pretends it is no longer a US company. Today it's Burger King. Not long ago it was Walgreens.

Israel lost the war in Gaza but the struggle for justice goes on

A ceasefire is not enough. Rebuilding Gaza is not enough. Even ending the siege would not be enough. It would only be the start.
We have to say never again. Never again must Israel be allowed to massacre Palestinians as it has in Gaza in 2006, 2008-2009, 2012 and 2014 – the years since it decided to turn Gaza into a giant open-air prison.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde under investigation in France

Christine Lagarde, the chief of the International Monetary Fund, was placed under official investigation Wednesday for negligence in a French corruption probe that dates back to her days as France’s finance minister.

In a statement after a fourth round of questioning before magistrates, Lagarde said she would return to her work in Washington later in the day and said the decision was “without basis.”

She and her former chief of staff face questions about their role in a 400 million-euro ($531 million) payment to a businessman.

Bankers Suck Lifeblood from Argentina

Paul Singer is not a nice guy.

The Jewish billionaire head of Elliott Management Corp. and a few mega-rich vulture fund managers have no problem with the likely economic destruction of the sovereign nation of Argentina, birthplace of Pope Francis.

By demanding full value for defaulted Argentine bonds they purchased for a pittance and refusing to accept a reasonable settlement, the unscrupulous profiteers may have forced the South American country to the brink of bankruptcy. If they succeed in their piratical efforts, these plutocratic poobahs will almost certainly cause the total collapse of the struggling Argentine economy, creating rampant poverty, joblessness and chaos. Already in 2006, commentator Adrian Salbuchi, at Canada’s Global Research website, likened this to “financial genocide and terrorism.”

Former HHS Cyber Security Director Convicted For Child Porn

Former acting director of cyber security for the Department of Health and Human Services Timothy DeFoggi was convicted for a myriad of gruesome child pornography charges Tuesday, the Department of Justice announced.

DeFoggi, who had top security clearance in his capacity as cyber security director, first joined the child pornography website PedoBook in March 2012. The Omaha World-Herald reported that he was arrested in April of last year, when law enforcement officials serving a search warrant found him downloading child pornography in his home.

In addition to viewing and soliciting child pornography, reportedly asking another member of the site whether he’d share pictures of his son, he suggested meeting a fellow pedophile in person to violently rape and murder children together.

Beginning next year, if you buy a cell phone in California that gets lost or stolen, you’ll have a built-in ability to remotely deactivate the phone under a new “kill switch” feature being mandated by California law—but the feature will make it easier for police and others to disable the phone as well, raising concerns among civil liberties groups about possible abuse.

What is the Difference Between the Democrat NationalCommitee and the Communist Party USA?

In America, conservatives have always been acutely aware of Communism, but the 47% who still approve of Barack Obama and those who are members of the Democratic Party are the dupes of those whose quest for tyrannical power permits them to tell the most appalling lies, particularly about Republicans.

The Democratic Party is so politically corrupt and devoid of moral standards that it is currently engaged in seeking to harm potential Republican presidential candidates with an utterly bogus indictment of Texas Governor Perry and the slanders leveled against New Jersey Governor Christie. It is a tactic of those who fear a loss at the ballot box.

Watch: US aid to Israel – the real deal

The special relationship between Israel and the United States goes deep, real deep. It’s based on “security”, conflict and, most of all money.

Most of the money is for the Israeli war machine. But with 2,139 people killed – most of them civilians and including 490 children – and over 10,500 wounded in Gaza, and given the Israeli Wehrmacht’s long list of human rights abuses, is this special relationship worth the price?

The federal government issued sixty contracts from 2009 to 2014 in efforts to build Healthcare.gov, the federal insurance marketplace.

'We lost our jobs for reporting being raped': Haunting photo essay depicts the suffering of women who were victims of sexual violence in the U.S. military

This is one of the many reasons that the US military will have its butt handed to it by the Russians and Chinese if the idiots in DC get their war!
By the way around 5,000 of these rapes are male on male,courtesy of the homosexual rights people. This is a big sign of a demoralized and pathetic military!
We are in big trouble folks!

The Battle Within: Sexual Violence In America's Military is a photo essay by Pulitzer Prize finalist photographer Mary Calvert
An estimated 26,000 rapes and sexual assaults took place in the armed forces last year
Only one in seven victims reported their attacks, and only one in 10 of those cases went to trial

Federal Judge: Kauai's GMO Law Is Invalid

A Kauai County law requiring companies to disclose their use of pesticides and genetically modified crops is invalid, a federal judge ruled Monday.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai's new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren's ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge's ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance: Stephen Lendman

An American political commentator says Hillary Clinton represents imperial arrogance, and she was a wretched secretary of state.

Stephen Lendman, a writer, syndicated columnist, peace activist and radio show host, made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV on Monday while commenting on Republican Senator Rand Paul’s description of Clinton as being a “gung-ho, war hawk”.

“Hillary Clinton certainly is in the news these days. She gets a lot of comments made about her with [the] many things that she is involved in and certainly because at this stage of the game - which is very early - she is far away the leading candidate [for the] Democrat [presidential] nomination in 2016,” Lendman said.
