The Most Whiney, Thin-Skinned, Easily Offended Society In The History Of The World

I truly believe that we are the most whiney, sensitive, thin-skinned, easily offended society in the history of the world.

Nobody has ever been as prolific at getting offended as we are.

Nobody cries over insignificant nonsense as loudly and consistently as us.

It’s the one thing we seem to do better than everyone else on the planet. We corner the Offended Market, and it’s not even close. Modern Americans love to get offended more than we love eating Cinnabon or talking about our fitness goals. If it was an Olympic sport, we’d grab the gold, silver, and bronze every year. If it was a job, we’d all be millionaires. In fact, we have turned it into a job, and the people who do it professionally are millionaires (Al Sharpton, etc). It is our calling card, our national pastime. It is the battle we fight and the banner we wave.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am offended by that! :)

Seriously, we have too many people in this nation whose entire sense of self-worth is that they can always find something to be offended about. It makes them feel superior. It makes them feel important. It makes them feel they have some control over their otherwise powerless existence. Such people will defend their constant complaining by saying they have a First Amendment right to scream that they are offended by ... everything, and they are right.

I also have a First Amendment right to totally ignore such wastes of planetary oxygen.

GERMANWINGS - WILD TALES - UPDATED 9 APRIL (Mike Rivero's Commentary)

Last week they were insisting that Lubitz was NOT being treated for depression (but wouldn't say what he was treated for).

At this point, Lubitz' medical condition is a moot point.

The official story is laced with lie after lie after lie.

American Cops 25 Times more Likely to Shoot Whites than Any Other Race

Cops are 25 times less likely to shoot unarmed blacks than whites or Hispanics, according to a little-known study which makes the South Carolina police shooting of an unarmed, fleeing black man even more egregious than before, if that’s even possible.

The study by Washington State University-Spokane, which barely received any news coverage, found that police were more likely to hesitate when shooting a black suspect due to “real-world concern over discipline, liability or public disapproval.”

An incredible interview of Dr. David Duke on Buenos Aires Television with Adrian Salbuchi on why those who really believe in human rights, Gentiles and Jews alike, should stand up for the Palestinian people and against the Zio racism and extremism that afflicts not only Palestine but so much of Western media, finance and politics!

Dean Clifford - Finally Free After 16 Months in Jail

Dean Clifford has been part of the Freeman on the Land/Sovereign Movement for over a decade, a mission that has led him to unravel the legal system and inform himself about government policy enforcement. In standing up for his rights and exposing corruption, Dean has attracted a great deal of attention from the Canadian government and law enforcement, resulting in several arrests, dozens of bogus charges, and most recently the unlawful kidnapping and forced confinement for 16 months in a Manitoba jail for charges of which he remains unconvicted. Dean returns to Red Ice for a special extended segment to discuss his imprisonment, the circumstances surrounding the pending charges, and the indignities and injustices bestowed upon him in the name of Her Majesty the Queen in Right of Canada.

Indiana and the Fake Right and Left

Five years ago, Rand Paul, who at the time was running for his Kentucky Senate seat, created a minor controversy when he applied the rules of liberalism consistently and fairly. Asked about his thoughts on Title II of the 1964 Civil Right Act, which criminalizes “discrimination” by private businesses on the basis of race, Paul said what every libertarian should say. In essence, much as an individual has the right to think and say what he wants, he also has the right to engage in whatever economic activity he wants with whomever he wants.

AE911 Truth founder Richard Gage kicks off month long European tour with lecture in Reykjavik, Iceland April 11

In a few days, Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth founder and 28-year professional architect Richard Gage, AIA, embarks on an intensive month-long speaking tour that is designed to illuminate Europeans on the facts of the destruction of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers on September 11, 2001.

Armed with unbiased expert analysis and eyewitness testimony, Gage exposes major flaws in the official 9/11 narrative, upon which a dubious perpetual war on terror and erosion of civil liberties across the globe has been predicated. Mounting death tolls, stratospheric military spending, and widespread government insolvency are prompting citizens of all countries to call for a closer examination of the evidence of the catastrophic events of 9/11 — events that have been the impetus for these planet-wide ills.

Doctor (71) sentenced for Holocaust denial

On Thursday a jury at Linz Court unanimously agreed that a letter the doctor had sent to the local council and the administration of the Mauthausen concentration camp memorial site proved that he believed that the gas chambers and the systematic genocidal killing had been made up. The man, from the Mühlviertel region, wrote that he became convinced after visiting the Mauthausen site that the gas chambers had never existed and that therefore the Holocaust "must be a lie made up by Zionist bankers, who are still up to their mischief in Israel and the 'Arab Spring'". He went on to claim that Hitler and Germany were not to blame for WWII and that Austria would be forever burdened with the "Holocaust cudgel".

The alleged Nazi gas chambers

Eisenhower, Churchill, de Gaulle

Three of the best known works on the Second World War are General Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe (New York: Doubleday [Country Life Press], 1948), Winston Churchill's The Second World War (London: Cassell, 6 vols., 1948-1954), and the Mémoires de guerre of General de Gaulle (Paris: Plon, 3 vols., 1954-1959). In these three works not the least mention of Nazi gas chambers is to be found.

Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; the six volumes of Churchill's Second World War total 4,448 pages; and de Gaulle's three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages. In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi "gas chambers," a "genocide" of the Jews, or of "six million" Jewish victims of the war.

Man Who Filmed Eric Garner Death Is in Prison, Fears He May Be Poisoned by Guards

By now everyone in America knows the name “Eric Garner.” What few people know about, is the man who filmed his demise at the hands of the NYPD. 22-year-old Ramsey Orta caught the infamous footage on his cell phone, and the day after Eric Garner’s autopsy report came out, he was arrested by the NYPD for carrying an unregistered firearm. Then last February he was arrested again for selling drugs to an undercover cop. Orta has since claimed that these arrests are in fact, acts of vengeance and harassment perpetrated by the NYPD.

It’s hard to say for sure if his claims are true, because none of us know what kind of person Orta is in real life. Is he a career criminal who just happened to film a police abuse incident, or is he really being targeted by the police for his actions?

Founder of French extreme-right party defends having described Nazi gas chambers as a 'detail of history'

The founder of France's extreme-right Front National party defended this week having described Nazi gas chambers as a ''detail of history''. In words which will revive accusations that the party remains anti-Semitic, Jean-Marie Le Pen, 86, said in an interview with BFMTV channel he had 'never regretted' making similar statements in the past. 'What I said corresponds to what I think.'' The gas chambers were a detail of the war, unless we admit that the war was a detail of the gas chambers!,'' Le Pen declared.

Openly US-coordinated-and-assisted terrorist attacks by Saudi dictator Salman Abdulaziz have killed hundreds of civilians in Yemen, the poorest country in the Middle East, over the past two weeks. The Red Cross continues to try to get Abdulaziz to stop blocking humanitarian aid from entering the country, saying the situation for civilians is catastrophic and getting worse. Instead of allowing aid, Abdulaziz increased his attack by firing explosives into Yemeni cities from naval vessels, in addition to his airstrikes.

Turns Out Feds Actually Tracked Most International Calls For Nearly A Decade Before 9/11 -- Didn't Stop The Attack

One of the big arguments trotted out repeatedly by surveillance state defenders concerning the NSA's Section 215 program to collect records on all phone calls is that such a thing "would have prevented 9/11" if it had been in place at the time. Here's former FBI boss Robert Mueller making just that argument right after the initial Snowden leaks. Here's Dianne Feinstein making the argument that if we had that phone tracking program before September 11th, we could have stopped the attacks. And here's former NSA top lawyer and still top NSA supporter Stewart Baker arguing that the program is necessary because the lack of such a program failed to stop 9/11.

Easter vault raiders steal up to £200million: Hatton Garden gem thieves cut through roof and disabled alarm system before abseiling down lift shaft to loot 300 safety deposit boxes over four days

The estimated £200million-worth of jewels and diamonds stolen in the Hatton Garden gem heist 'are already out of the country', an expert has claimed.
Thieves used heavy-duty cutting equipment to break into a vault packed with jewels in London's diamond district after abseiling down a lift shaft in a meticulously-planned raid over the weekend.
The gang are thought to have struck on the Thursday night after workers had left the City for the long Easter weekend, giving them four days to break into around 70 safety deposit boxes kept in an underground vault.

Kevin Rojano was convicted Dec. 3 of sodomizing a child younger than 10 and lascivious acts with a minor, and he was initially sentenced to 25 years to life in prison.

But Orange County Superior Court Judge M. Marc Kelly trimmed 15 years off Rojano’s sentence, saying it would be cruel and unusual punishment to impose the maximum prison term because the 20-year-old lacked “callous disregard for (the victim’s) well-being,” reported the Orange County Register.

A year or more ago, we mentioned on these pages that this person was a scam. It appears that the truth of it has now surfaced and we are glad for that. We are glad whenever the truth makes an appearance in the midst of the madness that composes the world as we presently know it, simply because we do not know it. Ah... but it knows us. It's a button pushing automaton that knows where our tendencies and weaknesses lie. It's engaged in a full scale assault against our better nature and that accounts for why there is such an army of walking wounded, accompanied by zombies in the making. It's not a pretty sight.

Here is proof positive that in the land of preeminent materialism, insanity has become full blown. There is madness in the enforcement arm of corporate controlled society and madness in the culture, as it reaches for ever greater absurdities of experience.

The Nineveh Plains Protection Unit: US Christians fund emerging private war on Iraq jihadists

After fighting with rebels in Libya and embracing the revolt in Syria, Matthew VanDyke has rolled up in northern Iraq, but the celebrity American revolutionary-cum-filmmaker has traded his fatigues for a three-piece suit.

VanDyke, who rose to fame as a foreign fighter backing Libyan rebels against Moamer Kadhafi, has just finished leading his new military contracting firm through its first assignment — training Christian volunteers to take on jihadists.

Funded by Christian groups from abroad, mainly from the United States, the Nineveh Plains Protection Unit (NPU) aims to bring a local Christian militia to bear against the Islamic State group that has seized swathes of Iraq and Syria.

VanDyke is one of the best-known — and least camera-shy — figures in an expanding and complex constellation of foreign fighters, organisations and donors getting involved in a private war against the jihadists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian, I am very tired of seeing these battles in the Middle East characterised as a latter-day crusade.

Oh, I am quite certain that there are those in the military, in DC, and the various alphabet soup "security agencies" in this country who LOVE to see these "Christian Soldiers" get lots of press, to inflame the masses in this country to want to enlist and just tear up any Muslim in the region with their bare hands.

I would not bet against some covert US government agencies actually funding these activities.

There is only one minor problem, however: these movements in the Middle East are economic and political in nature, not religious.

Religion is just the window-dressing here, applied sort of like a smokescreen, to keep people from recognizing what is really going on.

It is about who is in control of the vast riches of the region of the Middle East and Africa, and in what currency these assets will be sold.

In this country, and around the world, people are waking up to this reality.

I am sure that these Christian mercenaries are well-intentioned. However, the harder thing to do is to ask those in control and power in this country why the US keeps propping up tin-pot dictators in places like Yemen and Bahrain, and keep getting surprised when a desperate civilian population has had enough, and - literally throw the bums out?!?

US aerospace command moving comms gear back to Cold War bunker

The US military command that scans North America’s skies for enemy missiles and aircraft plans to move its communications gear to a Cold War-era mountain bunker, officers said.

The shift to the Cheyenne Mountain base in Colorado is designed to safeguard the command’s sensitive sensors and servers from a potential electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack, military officers said.

The Pentagon last week announced a $700 million contract with Raytheon Corporation to oversee the work for North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) and US Northern Command.

Admiral William Gortney, head of NORAD and Northern Command, said that “because of the very nature of the way that Cheyenne Mountain’s built, it’s EMP-hardened.”

“And so, there’s a lot of movement to put capability into Cheyenne Mountain and to be able to communicate in there,” Gortney told reporters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The timing here strikes me as most odd; there must be something going on here other than Cheyenne Mountain's being EMP-hardened.

That appears to be the "good reason" for American taxpayers to have to shell out yet another $700 million to retrofit the space; it doesn't feel like the "real reason".

THIS COULD SINK BANKS IN GREECE, PORTUGAL, SPAIN, AND ITALY

The European Commission is now contemplating pulling the rug out from under the banking miracles in Spain, Portugal, Greece, and Italy.

In total, there are €40 billion in deferred tax assets dressed up as core capital in the banks of these four countries. That’s how precarious these banks are. At one unnamed bank in Greece, these deferred tax assets account for 30% to 40% of its core capital. Without Greece’s special state guarantee, these deferred tax assets could not be part of the core capital, and without this additional “capital,” the bank would be toast.

But on paper, these crummy sorts of assets do a nice job of propping up these banks. And that’s why these four countries have bent over backwards to make it happen. Why bail out rotten banks with real money when fake assets can accomplish the same?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More taxpayer bailouts coming in Europe in the not too distant future, I see.

Only a dullard would believe that banking institutions will not eventually drop their interest rate pay outs to depositors, as their own costs are taxed or central banking policy demands that the value of the currency must be diminished.

The example that Australia Wants To Tax Bank Deposits: Will The US Follow? This report poses an obvious question for anyone keeping money in the depository system.

“Several months ago, the government of Australia proposed to tax bank deposits up to $250,000 at a rate of 0.05% (5 basis points). To be clear, the proposal seems to plan on taxing the banks based on the amount of deposits they’re holding—but it’s pretty obvious this will be passed on to consumers in the form of lower interest rates.”

1. Taxes on bank deposits are generally the same as negative interest rates.
2. Taxes always start small… then increase over time.
3. Taxes are rarely used for their stated purpose.

Afghan soldier shoots at US troops

The incident happened after a meeting between Afghan provincial leaders and a US embassy official in the compound of the provincial governor in Jalalabad, said General Fazel Ahmad Sherzad, police chief for eastern Nangarhar province.

The Afghan soldier opened fire "right after the US official had left", he said.

The American troops immediately returned fire, killing the Afghan soldier, he added.

It is the second insider attack this year. An Afghan soldier killed three American contractors on January 29.

The Afghan soldier was identified by Gen Sherzad as Abdul Azim, from Laghman province.

EPA Issues Moratorium on New Pesticides That Kill Birds and Bees

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a moratorium that will restrict the use of new pesticides that have been blamed for declining bee populations, though the policy does not apply to products currently on the market.

The chemicals in question, neonicotinoids, are a new class of insecticides that affect the central nervous system of insects and result in paralysis and death.

California Water Authorities Using Smart Meter Data as Evidence to Impose Fines

Essentially, consumption of utilities in your home is being big brother tracked and traced at all times on the smart grid.

Sure, it was sold to everyone as a “smart” solution for keeping consumption in check, that it would decrease utility bills because people could use it to check out how much they use and find smart ways to cut down. (How many people are really even doing that, by the way?)

Not only is this going to be used to serve up “peak pricing” models against the population — to price electricity and water higher during times of higher consumption by the population — it’s also going to be used to allow the people to tattle on themselves via their data, a set up that will come with heavy financial consequences.

As we can see happening now in California during its historic drought, smart meters are also being used by authorities to seek people out and impose fines.

Why Rand Paul’s Campaign Will Never Succeed

Earlier today Rand Paul announced to his supporters in Louisville, Kentucky, that he is officially running for President. He stood before the enthusiastic crowd, and spoke of defeating the Washington machine, reining in special interests, and returning our government to its constitutional limits. While these are all worthy goals, one must wonder if he has taken the right approach.

See, Rand is quite similar to his father in many ways, but he’s also quite different.

Psychological Warfare and the Fragmentation of the Psyche

The subject of dissociative identity disorder and the fracturing of the psyche is a complex topic that is becoming more mainstream through alternative media. The causes, nature and extent of the disorder are still shrouded in mystery, though modern medicine and psychology do have a lot to say about the matter. One of the reasons the disorder is controversial is that it doesn’t seem to fit well in the dominant materialist/biologist reductionism upon which mass science is built. Given the presupposition of modern science that the psyche is entirely equated with the brain itself, the assumptions are thus that any possible solution to mental problems of this nature can only be remedied or suppressed through the addition of, and rearrangement of, molecular compounds.

The real reason Netanyahu and the GOP hate this Iran deal

1) The nuclear architecture Iran gets to keep is way too big.
2) Sanctions relief will enable Iranian aggression.
3) The deal isn't strict enough in key areas.
4) Inspections won't be as strong as you think.

The thing about some of these arguments is that they are basically objections to any feasible deal with Iran. Many critics, particularly Netanyahu, have taken pains to deny that they oppose any deal altogether — but it seems quite clearly that they do.

Shell swallows BG for $70 billion

A new era of oil mega-mergers? Shell swallows BG for $70 billion
Collapse in prices creates backdrop for biggest energy merger in over a decade.

Royal Dutch Shell RD agreed to buy smaller rival BG Group BGG for $70 billion in the first oil super-merger in more than a decade to close the gap with the world’s largest oil firm U.S. ExxonMobil Inc.

In a joint statement, the two firms said Shell would pay a mix of cash and shares that would value each BG share at around 1,350 pence, more than 50% over its average price during the last three months.

Britain’s BG had a market capitalisation of $46 billion as of Tuesday’s close, while Shell was worth $202 billion. Exxon, the world’s largest oil company by market value, was worth $360 billion.

The Iran Nuclear Energy Agreement: Force Again Prevails Over Law — Paul Craig Roberts

The real question, however, is on what basis can Iran possibly trust Washington?

Iran should ask former Soviet president Gorbachev what Washington’s word is worth. In exchange for Gorbachev’s agreement to the reunification of Germany, Washington promised Gorbachev that NATO would not move one inch to the East and promptly took NATO to Russia’s border and is now working to incorporate former parts of the Russian empire into NATO.

Iran should ask current Russian president Putin what Washington’s word is worth. Sensing Russian strategic weakness, the George W. Bush regime broke the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty that Washington had signed with Moscow. Pulling out of the treaty, Washington quickly put anti-ballistic missile bases on Russia’s borders, hoping to degrade Russia’s strategic missile forces that serve as a guardian against Washington’s first nuclear strike, a policy now permissible under Washington’s revised war doctrine.

Authentic Journalism that Challenges Empire and Its Centers of Power

Exposing Lies of the Empire is a monumental work.

Some years back, I was approached to come up with a story that I’d really like to cover. There were many, but right away I was drawn to a story whose angle was completely marginalized in any media I had checked. I was interested to go to Zimbabwe and get a genuine impression from Zimbabweans of how they view the direction of their country under the government of Robert Mugabe. How they viewed the redistribution of land within the country.

Top Donor to Clinton Foundation (jewish) Oligarch in Ukraine

Follow the Money

Between 2009 and 2013, including when Mrs. Clinton was secretary of state, the Clinton Foundation received at least $8.6 million from the Victor Pinchuk Foundation, based in Kiev, Ukraine.

In 2008, Mr. Pinchuk made a five-year, $29 million commitment to the Clinton Global Initiative, a wing of the foundation that coordinates charitable projects and funding for them but doesn’t handle the money. The pledge was to fund a program to train future Ukrainian leaders and professionals “to modernize Ukraine,” according to the Clinton Foundation.

It said that if Mr. Pinchuk was lobbying the State Department about Ukraine, “this cannot be seen as anything but a good thing.”

Oh certainly, all you have to do is take a brief look at Ukraine to see what a wonderful thing it has been.

Mitch McConnell: Congress to 'respond legislatively' to Iran nuclear bill

Fresh off a trip to the Middle East, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is insisting that Congress get a chance to review and approve a nuclear deal with Iran.

"To the detriment of international security […] the Obama administration has always approached the goal of these negotiations as reaching the best deal that is acceptable to Iran, rather than what should be our national goal: ending Iran's nuclear program," the Kentucky Republican said in a statement Monday.

McConnell visited Israel, Jordan, Iraq and Afghanistan last week with a Senate delegation. On Thursday, a framework for a nuclear deal with Iran, the U.S. and five other world powers was announced — much to the dismay of many Republican lawmakers.
