Any lawyers willing to do it? Support the Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) movement, on American university campuses across the nation.
It is high time to engage the enemy with weaponry with which they are not only familiar, but weaponry which can penetrate their defenses and do damage. ‘Know thy Enemy’, learn from his successes.
Ahmad Saadaldin on Panel 3 (Overcoming obstacles: SJP – Student for Justice in Palestine successes) stood out as an especially inspiring representative of … a younger generation of activists.
The US administration and the US Congress have succumbed to the demands of the Zionists and the Zionist regime. American politicians and media have fallen captive to the Zionist network. This is a lethal ailment that afflicts the US.
Regrettably little is being done to cure this fatal disease.
The few prophetic voices we have, like Gideon Levy, will continue to remind us of the false prophets who have led us into the darkness.
As part of his mission, Levy came to Washington last week to speak at the National Press Club.
Levy came to Washington with the simple message that change in the situation between Israel and it neighbors will have to come from the U.S. He feels that Israel is a “lost case”. Change will not come from an Israeli society which “has surrounded itself with shields, with walls, not just physical walls but also mental walls.”
He sees three principles which allow “Israelis to live easily with the brutal tyranny that is the occupation”.
Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016.
Clinton’s Republican rivals or would-be rivals immediately fired the brickbats, accusing the 67-year-old former First Lady of being a «Washington insider» and the «embodiment of all that is wrong» in US politics.
Hillary Rodham Clinton is lambasted by Republicans as a «liberal».
Whether described as «liberal», «conservative» or «hawk» – all American presidential candidates are the same in practice. Puppets for sale.
The unintended irony of Clinton’s Republican detractors, who include rabid rightwing Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, as well as the maverick Senator Rand Paul, is that every single one of them will have to spend similar amounts of cash in their anticipated presidential campaigns.
“Operation Decisive Storm” – yet another Pentagon-style illegal war – has already plunged Yemen into the twin plagues of civil war and humanitarian disaster.
So what we have is the ‘Empire of Chaos’ ‘leading from behind’ in the war on Yemen and also de facto ‘leading from behind’ in the fight against ISIS/ISIL/Daesh; the ones doing the heavy lifting are Iraqi militias supported by Tehran. The hidden agenda is always – what else –chaos; be it across “Syraq” or inside Yemen. With an extra bonus; while Washington is engaged on striking a nuclear deal with Tehran, it also turbo-charges an alliance against Tehran using the House of Saud.
By one estimate U.S. online political advertising could quadruple to nearly $1 billion in the 2016 election, creating huge opportunities for digital strategy firms eager to capitalize on a shift from traditional mediums like television.
House Republicans this week will vote to hand the heirs and heiresses of America's largest fortunes a $269 billion tax break by repealing the federal inheritance tax.
The legislation would shield the very richest families from taxes on the fortunes they inherit. After years of GOP attacks on the inheritance tax, also known as the estate tax, only a few thousand of the wealthiest families are subjected to it -- 4,700 total in 2013, according to the Joint Committee on Taxation. Only individual fortunes worth over $5.43 million can be taxed under current law, an amount that doubles to $10.86 million for wealthy couples. The Republican proposal would eliminate all of these estates -- which are over 15,700 percent richer than the median American household -- from taxation.
A lead article in Monday’s New York Times describing a debate within the US government over whether to assassinate another American citizen brings into relief one basic fact: the United States is run by criminals.
The Times article revealed the name of an American citizen who had been placed on the so-called “kill list” for drone assassination. Due to a number of contingencies, the life of Texas-born Mohanad Mahmoud Al Farekh was ultimately spared. He was captured in a raid in Pakistan last year and was taken to the United States to face trial in Brooklyn, New York.
In collaboration with Big Business and special interests, the Obama administration’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is plotting a new program to track Americans’ vaccination records, wage a massive propaganda campaign to “encourage” more inoculations, and foist more controversial vaccines on adults against their will. Federal bureaucrats and crony capitalists set to profit from the proposal claim the goal is to improve “public health,” and establishment media outlets have largely parroted that line so far. However, critics of the unconstitutional scheme, formally dubbed the “National Adult Immunization Plan” (NAIP), say the ultimate goal is to forcibly vaccinate all Americans and move toward a radical new healthcare paradigm in which medical “treatment” is delivered at gunpoint.
US Republican Senator Bob Corker says he has struck a deal with Democrat lawmakers in the Senate that would allow Congress to review any nuclear agreement with Iran.
The US Senate Foreign Relations Committee is scheduled to vote on Tuesday afternoon (2:15 p.m. local time) on the Corker-Menendez bill that would prevent President Barack Obama from lifting sanctions against Iran until Congress reviews a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.
Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told MSNBC network on Tuesday morning, “We have reached a bipartisan agreement that keeps the congressional review process absolutely intact, full of integrity.”
President Barack Obama is endeavoring to produce a noteworthy agreement that will oblige a lot of trust between two long-lasting enemies who have been persuaded the other side is intent on crushing them. It will require fragile arrangements, including transactions over who gets the opportunity to arrange. To succeed, it will drive both sides to relinquish old, agreeable political develops in which every side characterized itself to some extent by making an adversary of the other.
Yes, there is still bias “out there,” as some have written, about an American woman running for President, but I do not believe the bias is decisive: after all, America has broken what surely was its fiercest taboo with the election of a black man, twice. There is, however, another bias “out there,” and a decisive one: a bias against the Clintons, a ghastly pair in almost every respect, America’s contemporary version of the Borgias – both of them grasping, vicious, ruthless, two-faced, and lacking only the Borgias’ good taste in art and literature.
As the National Journal reported in 2014, even the pathetically weak anti-war left is not ready to reconcile with Hillary given her warmongering as Secretary of State. And with good reason. Scratching just lightly beneath the surface of Hillary Clinton’s career reveals the empirical evidence of her historic support for aggressive interventions around the globe.
Clinton famously voted in 2002 to support the Iraq war; in 2011, she argued for NATO missile strikes against Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi. She also speaks favourably of her good relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Secret phone recordings have revealed that a Democratic member of Congress and top Pentagon leaders went around then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to negotiate with the Libyan regime of Muammar Gadhafi because they were convinced she was hell-bent on taking the U.S. to war.
Libya was once the most stable country in Africa, it also had the highest standard of living as of 2011 — HAD. Enter military-industrial-complex and corporate imperialism. Oh Hillary, I though you were a progressive that loved peace? Damn, has the media been lying to us again? Yes, Obama and Hillary took Libya from a stable, prosperous country to a completely failed state in 4 short years. Here’s how:
The Anti-Americanism typical of the “Russian structure” is a continuation of the intellectual of the Slavophiles. These latter thought that one cannot fully assume Russian identity more than by getting rid of the footprint of the West, liberating oneself of this European [i.e., Western-European] manner of viewing oneself which became the norm after Peter the Great. But Europe today is no longer the Europe of the epoch of the Slavophiles, nor of the first Eurasianists. Europe is distinct from the West, that is, from the sphere of influence of the United States. Becoming Russian, today, is to liberate oneself at all levels from Western and American influence. Westernism is not solely an intellectual position, but simultaneously a contagious disease and a betrayal of the fatherland. It is for that reason that we must restlessly fight the West. In fighting against the West, the Russians affirm themselves as Russians, belonging to Russian culture, to Russian history, to Russian values.
But, most importantly, Hillary Clinton is the next big “civil rights” story. Now that Americans have had their Black president, the media will need some big story to get excited about so that 2016 can be another “groundbreaking” and “historic” election. Progressives, after all, want to show “progress.” THE FIRST WOMAN PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES is a no-brainer. The headlines will write themselves. The fact that she is probably at least as legitimately qualified for the job than any possible contenders will barely even matter. None of the bullshit-policies-she-comes-up-with-so-she’ll-have-something-to-talk-about will matter, and neither will her various campaign promises.
For using children for the purpose of an election campaign and for presenting gay lifestyle as a positve if it can be seen by children.
To an American, her fast-paced, feel-good YouTube clip might look like a bland and insincere attempt to touch base with all the main voter groups, or a firm promise to look after the interests of the middle class, made in a hip, iPhone-ready format.
Russian election watchdogs, however, would cry foul from the first seconds. "According to Russia's 'law' on 'elections,' Hillary would have already been disqualified," tweeted Leonid Volkov, "it is forbidden to involve in election or referendum campaigning such persons as have not attained the age of 18 on the day of the vote, and to use their images and statements in campaign materials." The only exception made is for families of the candidates themselves.
The very same people that caused the last economic crisis have created a 278 TRILLION dollar derivatives time bomb that could go off at any moment. When this absolutely colossal bubble does implode, we are going to be faced with the worst economic crash in the history of the United States. During the last financial crisis, our politicians promised us that they would make sure that “too big to fail” would never be a problem again. Instead, as you will see below, those banks have actually gotten far larger since then. So now we really can’t afford for them to fail.
One by one, four former Blackwater security contractors wearing blue jumpsuits and leg irons stood before a federal judge on Monday and spoke publicly for the first time since a deadly 2007 shooting in Iraq.
“I know for a fact that I will be exonerated, in this life and the next,” said Paul A. Slough.
“I am very sorry for the loss of life,” Dustin L. Heard said. “But I cannot say in all honesty to the court that I believe I did anything wrong.”
“As God is my witness,” Evan S. Liberty said, he fired only at insurgents who were shooting at him.
“The verdict is wrong,” said Nicholas A. Slatten, a former Army sniper who was convicted of murder for starting the melee with a precision shot through the head of a young man stopped at an intersection. “You know I am innocent, sir.”
The judge, Royce C. Lamberth, strongly disagreed, sentencing Mr. Slatten to life in prison and handing 30-year sentences to the three others.
First introduced in the House of Representatives in 2011, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) is once again back in play and is being considered for legislative action this month. Much of the same concerns that accompanied its introduction in 2011 remain specifically that it is a blank check for cybersurveillance dressed up as a bill to promote cybersecurity.

With the passage of House Bill 195 into law, the State of Louisiana has banned the use of cash in all transactions involving secondhand goods. State representative Ricky Hardy, a co-author of the bill, claims that the bill targets criminals who traffic in stolen goods. According to Hardy, “It’s a mechanism to be used so the police department has something to go on and have a lead.” The bill prohibits cash transactions by "secondhand dealers," defined to include garage sales, flea markets, resellers of specialty items, and even non-profit resellers like Goodwill. Curiously, it specifically exempts pawnbrokers from the ban. But of course, pawn shops--and not rented stalls at local church flea markets--are notorious as places that criminals frequent to convert stolen goods into quick cash. So what gives? Are the authors of the bill and those who voted for it ignoramuses--or are they deliberately obscuring the real purpose of the bill?
Palestinian children as young as 11 are being employed under dangerous conditions in Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank in breach of international law, a human rights group said on Monday. Hundreds of child labourers are working in farms and agricultural businesses in the strategically sensitive Jordan Valley for just £13 a day, according to a new report from Human Rights Watch, which documented cases of young people suffering work-related ill health and injuries.
American politicians and media have fallen captive to the Zionist network. This is a lethal ailment that afflicts the US.
C-Span refused to cover the conference? Speak of “Silencing voices of TRUTH” or any exposure of even the most legitimate and reasonable discourse about Israel — Apparently, “The invisible dictatorship (to borrow a phrase) J.I.D., which controls America certainly saw to it!”
Whether it is not already too late to do much about it, we shall see.
Let us get it out on as many Websites as possible, Twitter and Facebook it, as well. We should not underestimate the power of the internet.
Hillary Clinton’s promise to represent “everyday Americans” is completely at odds with her personal lifestyle, obsession with money, and the fact that her 2008 campaign was funded by giant transnational banks.
Hillary Clinton has announced her candidacy for President of the United States. While the European press showers her with praise without thinking, Webster G. Tarpley recalls her balance sheet: in all circumstances, she supported war and corporate interests.
Kelly disgustingly argued in his written decision that Rojano never meant to harm the girl and claimed Rojano isn’t a pedophile. Kelly also seemed to blame the 3-year-old girl for causing her own rape.
“In looking at the facts of Mr. Rojano’s case, the manner in which this offense was committed is not typical of a predatory, violent brutal sodomy of a child case. Mr. Rojano did not seek out or stalk (the victim). He was playing video games and she wandered into the garage. He inexplicably became sexually aroused but did not appear to consciously intend to harm (the victim) when he sexually assaulted her.
Although serious and despicable, this does not compare to a situation where a pedophilic child predator preys on an innocent child. There was no violence or callous disregard for (the victim’s) well-being.”
Shocked by the judge’s decision, prosecutors are planning to file an appeal.
I think someone needs to check out the Judge's computer for child porn!
Hillary Clinton this week launched her bid for the US presidential elections in 2016. Among the copious coverage in Western media was the small but highly significant detail: her presidential campaign will have a war chest of $2.5 billion. The former US Senator and Secretary of State is said to have a personal net worth of between $50-100 million. However, if she is selected by the Democratic party to make a run for the White House most of her presidential campaign will be bankrolled by corporations and super-wealthy backers like financier George Soros through his Democracy Alliance foundation. That alone tells where her political loyalties and priorities lie.
Yes, there is still bias "out there," as some have written, about an American woman running for President, but I do not believe the bias is decisive: after all, America has broken what surely was its fiercest taboo with the election of a black man, twice.

Last month, California newspaper The Desert Sun published an investigation revealing that Nestlé Water’s permit to transport water across the San Bernardino National Forest for bottling has been expired since 1988. On Friday, the California Forest Service announced it would make it “a priority” to reassess the permit, and that it might impose as-of-yet unspecified “interim conditions” on the bottling operation in light of the severe drought, The Desert Sun reports.
On September 18, 2014, Scotland’s voters went to the polls to vote on the question: Should Scotland be independent as it was prior to 1603? In some areas 90% of the qualified voters turned out in hopes of having their say. The next day it was reported that the official result was only 45% “yes” for independence to 55% “no.” But as Hamlet might say, something is rotten in the state of Scotland with evidence indicating that the election was rigged.
The Young Turk movement, AKA Committee of Union and Progress, arose out of the Rothschilds’ oil interests in the Black Sea area of the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s. ‘Creating stability’ in an incendiary realm was necessary for the Rothschilds’ new oil enterprise Baku Oil. The instability of the Armenian Christians’ financial and intellectual prominence in the area was not “good for business.” . . .
1891: Out of the Donmeh a Zionist political group forms called The Committee of Union and Progress, later called The Young Turks. The group is headed by a Freemason Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carraso who organizes the secret Committee of Union and Progress in Geneva with the help of the Rothschilds.
1915: The Armenian Holocaust engineered by the ruling Jews of The Young Turks, leaves 1.5 million Armenian Christians starved, tortured, and murdered.

As you’ve likely heard by now, Killary Hillary Clinton has announced she is running for dictator president of the US.
‘Ol Hilldog is no stranger to scandal, controversy, mockery, and…well, I’ll just say it: hate. She just might be the most despised politician in the US today, but heck, you’ve gotta give her credit – she’s not going to let that stop her.
With the announcement of Hillary’s POTUS run came the unveiling of a new logo...
BEIRUT: Winter-like weather returned to Lebanon over the weekend, with heavy overnight rain along the coast and snowfall in the mountains.
Intermittent rain and snow will continue as temperatures slowly drop until Monday, according to the Meteorological Department at Beirut airport.
Some mountain roads, including the Kfar Debian road linking Beirut to the Bekaa Valley, were only opened for cars equipped with chains as a result of the snowfall Saturday, according to the Traffic Management Center.
Of course I pointed out Hillary Clinton's role in wars in Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, Iran, Ukraine, etc., her profiteering off Boeing while marketing Boeing weapons as Secretary of State, her transformation of the State Department into a fully owned subsidiary of the military, her foundations taking money from Chevron and Exxon-Mobil while she persuades Eastern European countries not to ban fracking. Hillary backs Israel's crimes, opposes the UN and international law. The corruption and nastiness in her hidden emails need hardly be seen to be estimated. She was too corrupt for the Watergate Committee, for godsake, trying to keep Nixon in for Ted Kennedy to run against, just as the Democrats of 2007 kept the war on Iraq going in order to run against it again.

Bill Kristol and John McCain have replaced Robert Novak and Pat Buchanan in Republican foreign policy influence.
When the unexpectedly detailed P5+1 framework agreement with Iran was announced last Thursday, Illinois Republican Mark Kirk made a bizarre comment. “We all know” said the senator, that this is going to end with “a mushroom cloud somewhere near Tehran”—a result of Israel having to go to war to “clean up the mess” made by American and European negotiators. A few days earlier John McCain had expressed the wish that Israel “go rogue” and attack Iran in order to upend the Iran negotiations.
Parents in Australia who fail to vaccinate their children will have welfare payments stopped, under government plans.
Rules which until now have allowed a “conscientious objector” loophole are being tightened.
The vast majority of children in Australia are vaccinated but a growing number of refusals has been reported.
The prime minister fears risks to the population at large.
Back in 1976, the US Government mandated vaccinations for the swine flu,. then had to call them off when the vaccine killed fifty times as many people as the flu itself. Today the big push is for measles vaccination because of the measles epidemic which oddly enough seems to hit the children who have actually had the vaccine, suggesting that the vaccines do not work, or worse, are actually causing the illnesses. So far, the US Vaccine Court has acknowledged more than 100 deaths caused by the measles vaccine, while nobody in the US has died of measles itself in the last ten years!
Nearly two years after two bombs detonated moments apart at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, the lone person accused in the crime stands trial in federal court on terrorism and weapons of mass destruction charges. The jury is all but certain to convict, not least because his defense attorneys opened their arguments by pointing at their client and saying, “It was him.”
“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact”
The millions of dollars donated by foreign governments to the Clinton Foundation have boosted the couple’s global reach but critics warn they ensnare the White House candidate in conflicts of interest.
During the four years Hillary Clinton spent as US secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, foreign funds continued to flow into the charity founded in 2001 by her husband, former president Bill Clinton.
DHS claims its "PATRIOTIC" to influence TV shows, movies, invest in sports centers, casinos, shopping malls, rest homes and more! The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) inspector general has released hundreds of pages of emails plus other documents in support of its investigation of improper influence on the EB-5 immigration program. Many of the documents discuss hundreds of millions of dollars in financing for film and television productions from Sony Pictures and Time Warner with prominent politicians including former Pennsylvania governor Ed Rendall and the office of former Los Angeles mayorAntonio Villaraigosa interjecting in an effort to get approvals. We [DHS] were also told he was exerting influence to give these individuals preference and access not available to others.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused gay Americans of "waging “jihad” against Christians by opposing anti-LGBT religious freedom laws.
The Republican presidential candidate made the remarks Thursday at an Iowa homeschool forum hosted by conservative radio broadcaster Steve Deace, a highly influential figure in the state’s GOP primaries who regularly complains about the “rainbow jihad.”
“You look at the jihad that is being waged right now in Indiana and Arkansas, going after people of faith who respect the biblical teaching that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” Cruz said.
Former Florida governor and expected Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized US President Barack Obama for holding talks with Cuban leader Raul Castro while refusing to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the latter’s last trip to Washington.
“Obama meets with Castro but refused to meet w/ Netanyahu,” Bush tweeted Sunday. “Why legitimize a cruel dictator of a repressive regime?”
Well, Jeb, since you obviously have not been paying attention, Castro didn't try to upstage Obama with a grandstanding speech before Congress. Castro hasn't had his hand out every year for billions of taxpayer dollars while building a nuclear arsenal that makes all that financial aid illegal under US law, and wheras Israel has started war after war after war, creating a mess in the Middle East that Israel expects the US to clean up, Castro has been pretty much minding his own business. And if you don't understand that difference, you are far too stupid to be President!
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a telegenic rising star with appeal to conservative and establishment Republicans, told donors in a conference call today that he will run for president, according to multiple news reports.
Rubio told his supporters he feels "uniquely qualified" to be president and criticized Hillary Clinton as "a leader from yesterday."
The ISIL terrorist group has threatened to “burn the United States again" by conducting terrorist attacks against the country similar to the September, 11, 2001 attacks in New York City and the Washington, DC.
The Takfiri terrorist organization released a propaganda video on Saturday via the Internet titled “We Will Burn America”, warning that Americans are not safe anywhere in the world.
“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” a voice-over in the video says. “But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”
"Today there is no safety for any American on the globe," the voice adds, while showing footage of planes crashing into the World Trade Center in New York City as well as acts of savagery by the group in Iraq and Syria.
Aleksandr Dugin is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia. In addition to the many books he has authored on political, philosophical and spiritual topics, he currently serves on the staff of Moscow State University, and is the intellectual leader of the Eurasia Movement. For more than a decade, he has also been an advisor to Vladimir Putin and others in the Kremlin on geopolitical matters, being a vocal advocate of a return of Russian power to the global stage, to act as a counterweight to American domination. Dugin joins us to speak about the subject of his book, The Fourth Political Theory. He begins with an overview of this political vision, one that is a fundamental criticism of liberalism in all forms, but does not fall into communism, nationalism or fascism.
On 15 April 1912, the Titanic, the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service, sank in the North Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage. The large and unnecessary death toll – more than 1,500 passengers and crew – was the result of many factors.
It's a stark contrast: Just one day after Hillary Clinton, who could end up being the oldest Democratic presidential nominee in history, formally jumped into the 2016 race, the man who could be one of the youngest nominees, Marco Rubio, will follow suit.
Here are five things to know about Rubio:
1. Jeb Bush was his political mentor:
2. Rubio is one of the GOP's most promising politicians who also happens to be young:
3. He has struggled to find his footing on immigration:
4. He'll likely make foreign policy a central issue of his campaign:
5. He speaks the language of younger voters:
"Protecting Israel’s future is not simply a question of policy for me, it’s personal. I’ve talked with some of you I’ve know for a while about the first trip Bill and I took to Israel so many years ago, shortly after our daughter was born.
"And I have seen the great accomplishments," Clinton added; "the pride of the desert blooming and the start-ups springing up. I’ve held hands with the victims of terrorism in their hospital rooms, visited a bombed-out pizzeria in Jerusalem, walked along the fence near Gilo. And I know with all my heart how important it is that our relationship go from strength to strength."
GC: Why is this world so sad? Do you have a religious answer? A faith-based answer?
CO: Life is suffering, and the ancient story of John the Baptist and Herod belongs to modern history…. Our “Herod” (POTUS) stands militarily above all other nations, and only Russia seems to stop the U.S. from cutting off (bombing) any head(s) our Controllers desire.
They intimidate the Vatican, and instead of “putting on the armor of God,” (St. Paul), the Roman Catholic Church often acquiesces, and by the “sin of omission,” helps hasten the making of a Rich Man & Lazarus world, an inevitable War of Civilizations.
At any rate, how will that “Ole Time Religion” square with this basically unimaginable world towards which we are racing?
The world's central banks have a problem. When economic conditions worsen, they react by reducing interest rates in order to stimulate the economy. But, as has happened across the world in recent years, there comes a point where those central banks run out of room to cut — they can bring interest rates to zero, but reducing them further below that is fraught with problems, the biggest of which is cash in the economy.
The old recruiting slogan was “Join the Navy and See the World.” Those advertisements were prescient; the U.S. military has a presence of some kind in 171 nations and jurisdictions in addition to the United States and its possessions. Many times the presence is one officer as a military attaché or similar post or even a military dependent. But some countries host significant numbers of members of the U.S. armed forces.
Aside from the fractured eye and bruised face, Reid also somehow hit his bathroom cabinets so hard, he wound up in the same instant with not one but four broken ribs.
In the original version of the story told for weeks afterward, this magic bullet theory "accident" occurred in Reid's bathroom. However, Reid's exercise story, which pretty much no one believed from the get go anyway, later changed in two key ways.
Presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham Clinton is endorsing the illegal exploitation of disputed lands and risks undermining four decades of UN diplomacy by taking money from Morocco, critics say.
Clinton, who's expected to announce her candidacy for the Democratic nomination April 12, has come under fire for accepting foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation, most recently a $1 million donation from OCP, a fertilizer giant owned by the Moroccan government. Left unsaid in the initial reports: OCP — the Office Chérifien des Phosphates – is a major player in the exploitation of mineral resources from the Western Sahara, a disputed territory known as the “last colony in Africa” that Morocco took over after colonial power Spain abandoned it in the 1970s.
A senior Iranian diplomat has warned against the fallout of Saudi Arabia’s illegal military campaign against Yemen, saying it is a conspiracy that aims to disintegrate Saudi Arabia.
“The enemies of the [Middle East] region are unfortunately trying to disintegrate and weaken Saudi Arabia, and the aggression against Yemen and its consequences are the start point of this ominous plot,” Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Sunday.
He called on the United States to stop pursuing dual policies in the Middle East and recommended Saudi Arabia to stop counting on Washington’s help in Yemen.
The Iranian diplomat warned that the continuation of Saudi aggression against Yemen would lead to “inevitable consequences," adding that Saudi Arabia is playing with regional security by attacking Yemen.
PARENTS who refuse to vaccinate their kids will be denied up to $15,000 a year in childcare rebates and welfare under tough new rules won byThe Sunday Telegraph.
Our No Jab, No Play campaign has scored a stunning victory, with bipartisan support for the ‘‘conscientious objector’’ loophole to be completely closed to protect all children.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Social Services Minister Scott Morrison will today announce the historic reforms, which mean parents who fail to immunise their children will no longer be paid the $200-a-week childcare benefit, the $7500-a-year childcare rebate or the $726 Family Tax Benefit A annual supplement.

Are you SURE you want to let politicians decide what medications you must take while they pocket huge campaign contributions from the makers of those dangerous products?
Dozens of Ukrainian banks have reportedly gone bankrupt over the course of one year, with Kiev having to rely on external funding from the European Union (EU) amid insufficient insurance funds.
Managing Director of the Ukrainian Deposit Insurance Fund Konstantin Woruschilin said 46 banks in the country have declared insolvency, pointing to a number of contributing factors to the high number of bankruptcy, Russia-based Sputnik news agency reported on Saturday.
Woruschilin said the main factor is “the immoral behavior of bank managers,” with a number of cases involving bank employees stealing money for personal purposes.
Other factors were a drop in the country’s exports, a decline in consumption and high production costs, according to the director.
A German court has shut down a long-standing anti-Israel exhibition in the western city of Cologne, accusing its organizer of anti-Semitism and glorification of violence.
The German municipal court said the permanent exhibit, which displayed numerous pictures of the Palestinian children who were killed and injured during the Israeli regime’s bloody offensive against Gaza last summer, violates a law designed to protect minors.
Walter Hermann, the organizer of the exhibit, has protested for years against Israel with his exhibit dubbed the “Cologne Wailing Wall.”
Hermann, 76, whose anti-Israel campaign is named “Peace Demonstration,” told the German Express newspaper that the wanted to draw public attention to Israeli policies against Palestinian people.
US president criticizes prime minister for opposing deal without providing an alternative that 'makes it less likely for Iran to get a nuclear weapon'.
"The Prime Minister of Israel is deeply opposed to it, I think he’s made that very clear. I have repeatedly asked - what is the alternative that you present that you think makes it less likely for Iran to get a nuclear weapon? And I have yet to obtain a good answer on that that."
The White House lashed out at Egypt on Saturday for jailing a US-Egyptian citizen for life over Islamist protest violence, calling for his "immediate release."
Mohamed Soltan, who is on hunger strike, received his sentence alongside 14 other defendants who got the death penalty, including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badie.
His father Salah Soltan was among those sentenced to death.
"The United States condemns the life sentence issued today in Egypt against American citizen Mohamed Soltan."
The defendants were accused of plotting unrest from their headquarters in a sprawling Cairo protest camp in the months after the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
(*It actually seems very convenient for the US that this sentence was handed to this individual , in Egypt , considering the way that The US has been operating it's 'foreign policy' , in recent times .)
As parents and concerned citizens rallied in Sacramento to oppose Senate Bill 277, the Senate Health Committee advanced the bill with a 6 to 2 vote. In what the Sergeant at Arms described as “The biggest turnout I’ve seen in 15 years,” the signed bill now faces further challenges on the way to law...
What’s left of Yarmouk Palestinian neighborhood in Damascus will soon duplicate the mounds of rubble and smell of death in Homs, the old city of Aleppo, Idlib, East Damascus, Deraa. Some Lebanese refugee camp residents and political analysts predict a similar fate for Ein el Helweh.
Over the centuries there have been many stories, some based on loose facts, others based on hearsay, conjecture, speculation and outright lies, about groups of people who "control the world." Some of these are partially accurate, others are wildly hyperbolic, but when it comes to the historic record, nothing comes closer to the stereotypical, secretive group determining the fate of over 7 billion people, than the Bank of International Settlements, which hides in such plain sight, that few have ever paid much attention.
One of the U.S. Navy’s biggest embarrassments continues to stir headlines and produce serious fallout for top military personnel.

This is the article which had been scheduled to appear in the Washington Post. After having cleared the legal department for all possible questions of inaccurate statements, the article was scheduled for publication when just as the presses were set to roll, Washington Post Managing Editor Bob Kaiser (Like George Bush, a member of the infamous "Skull & Bones" Fraternity), killed the article without explanation.

"If the people were to ever find out what we have done, we would be chased down the streets and lynched."
-- George Bush, cited in the June, 1992 Sarah McClendon Newsletter
Arkansas was the US end of the guns and drug running operation that covertly supported the Nicaraguan Contras against the Sandanistas. Everyone on the pipeline made a fortune from the cocaine smuggled back into the US by the CIA and sold on the streets of America to fund the operation. And Bill and Hillary Clinton, ensconced in the Arkansas Governor's mansion, were right in the middle of it, as Bill had to sign the checks used to launder the drug money through the Arkansas Development Finance Authority.
Hillary Clinton, a former US secretary of state (and senator, and First Lady), will reportedly announce her 2016 presidential run Sunday via social media. Expect these recent Clinton scandals to surface again (and again) for the duration of her candidacy.
Don't forget the cattle futures trades, the murder-made-to-look-like-a-suicide of White House Deputy Council (and rumored Hillary lover) Vincent Foster, the travel office firings, the links between the Clintons and Iran-Contra guns and drug running while in Arkansas, Whitewater, Flowerwood, Castle Grande, the Arkansas Development Finance Authority, etc.
Hillary posed before the White House Christmas Tree with known cocaine smuggler and Clinton donor Jorge Cabrera.
If ever there were a body of numbskulls taking in the “cool aid” of corporate largess, lobbyists and consensus science, the U.S. Congress, apparently, fits that bill when it comes to the hard-core facts regarding toxic ingredients in vaccines along with the so-called ‘science of vaccines’ and the vested-interest roles they have played in modern life.
Nothing expresses that more than the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (42 U.S.C. §§ 300aa-1 to 300aa-34), which has become more of a nightmare, especially for anyone who’s been damaged by vaccines. Congress apparently went ‘off the rails’ on that one; never has bothered to investigate all the damage vaccines are causing—see the VAERS reporting system—and now, the current members of the U.S. House of Representatives issued a House Resolution—H.Res.117—that readers need to know about...
