U.S., QATAR PLAN TO REBRAND ALQAEDA INTO "MODERATE" REBELS

The CIA supported and equipped "moderate" rebels in Syria are loosing out against al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra. The last "moderate" group active in north Syria, Harakat Hazzm, had to give up its headquarter -including a ware house full of U.S. weapons- to Jabhat al Nusra and dissolved. The U.S. military plans to recruit, pay and train new "moderate" rebels but the effort is starting veeerrry slow. Just 100 have been vetted so far to be "moderate" enough for the program. There are simply too few non-Jihadi rebels and warlords available willing to die for U.S. dollars.

US Officials Dismiss Netanyahu’s ‘Impossible’ Iran Deal

US officials have shrugged off Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dictated terms for an alternative Iran deal as completely “impossible” to see accepted.

Officials said that not only would Iran never accept the terms laid out by Netanyahu, but that virtually none of the other P5+1 nations would tolerate the Israeli demands either.

The demand for a complete, unconditional dismantlement of Iran’s civilian nuclear infrastructure would never be accepted, and the call to couple it with a round of new sanctions, seemingly just for spite, would all but guarantee Iran would abandon the talks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli elections are just 13 days away, and there are no guarantees that Netanyahu will get any of what he wanted, after the speech to Congress.

There are also no guarantees that Netanyahu won't bomb Iran unilaterally before the election, to show just how "butch" he can be; and he will have to contend with the absolute wrath of the international community which has had it up to HERE with his warmongering and threatening of his neighbors in the Middle East.

But internal polls in Israel suggest that the Israeli voters feel Netanyahu is completely out of touch with domestic problems they face, and want him to focus on domestic issues more.

And if he loses the election, without the power of the office of Prime Minister, is headed toward some massive corruption charges, to which he is going to have to answer.

I have no crystal ball here, but would tend to predict that Netanyahu has created the "perfect storm" for himself, by attempting to sway US foreign policy so blatantly, and ignoring festering domestic problems at home.

Cleveland Mayor Forced to Apologize for Claiming 12-Year-Old Shot by Police Was Responsible for his own Death

The mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, apologized Monday for papers filed by the city that claimed a 12-year-old boy was to blame for his fatal shooting at the hands of police.

The family of Tamir Rice, shot to death last November by Cleveland police, filed a lawsuit (pdf) against the city and the officers involved in the shooting. In its response filed Friday, the city originally claimed Rice was responsible for his own death. After news of the city’s stance got out over the weekend, Mayor Frank Jackson apologized to Rice’s family and to Cleveland residents, and said a new response to the family’s suit would be filed within 20 days. “In an attempt to protect all of our defenses, we used words and we phrased things in such a way that was very insensitive to the tragedy in general, the family and the victim in particular,” Jackson said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Insensitive", Mayor Jackson?!?!?

How about bloody downright stupid!!!

Private Police: Mercenaries for the American Police State

Whatever scant protection the weakened Fourth Amendment provides us dissipates in the face of privatized police, who are paid by corporations working in partnership with the government. Talk about a diabolical end run around the Constitution.

We’ve been so busy worrying about militarized police, police who shoot citizens first and ask questions later, police who shoot unarmed people, etc., that we failed to take notice of the corporate army that was being assembled under our very noses. Looks like we’ve been outfoxed, outmaneuvered and we’re about to be out of luck.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Courtesy of the last two administrations, the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eviscerated to the point where now, the only categories of persons they protect anymore are the huge corporations which fund election campaigns.

Azerbaijan should be very afraid of Nuland

The US’ Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, visited Baku on 16 February as part of her trip to the Caucasus, which also saw her paying stops in Georgia and Armenia. While Azerbaijan has had positive relations with the US since independence, they’ve lately been complicated by Washington’s ‘pro-democracy’ rhetoric and subversive actions in the country. Nuland’s visit, despite her warm words of friendship, must be look at with maximum suspicion, since it’s not known what larger ulterior motives she represents on behalf of the US government.

Report: Cops Tased Man Repeatedly “Until His Heart Blew Out”

“He would release, Taser again, release, Taser again.” said Mize. “It was scary and out of line. They killed a husband, a father and a grandfather in front of the grandbabies, wife and the daughter.”

“They kept tasing him until his heart blew out… It was too much. They did too much,” Mize added. “He was not a bad person,” said Mize. “Yes he had a record and none of it was violent. He was a family man. He was a good sweet family man.”

“I wish I never called the police,” said a distraught Temple, adding “They shouldn’t have tased him.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Congress: Mummies R Us Karen De Coster

snip: The multi-millionaires in congress are destroying life and freedom through a governing body that lords it over all of us. Politics, by definition, is coercion, and still, no matter how much people – voters – learn about the establishment and its reason for existence, they sanction it. They sanction it each time they concede to the government’s arbitrary decrees and go along with its mandates. And especially, the masses consent to total control and tyranny each time they vote for any one of these swines. These monsters, who have been given extraordinary powers to rule, have become so accustomed to ramping up their powers and stomping their legislative jack boots down on our heads that they are not the slightest bit tolerant of resistance. They loathe your disobedience, your verbal challenges, your hostility to their supremacy.

Nancy Pelosi, the repulsive, arrogant she-devil that she is, once likened the middle class resistance to her socialist-fascist agenda as an “astroturf” movement. That happened when she didn’t like the swastikas stuck in her face as she tried to ram her perverted health care plan down our collective throats. In fact, the Dems are certain that there is no real resistance at all. They believe it’s just a big setup, with the Republican Party hiring stand-ins to show up and to protest. The term used to describe the resistance is “manufactured outrage.”

Netanyahu's Arsenal of Nukes The Israeli Elephant in the US Congress by BARRY LANDO

snip: Although it has possessed nuclear weapons for more than half a century, Israel still refuses to own up to that fact, and the United States blandly continues to go along with that fiction. When asked in 2009 if he knew of any country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons, Barack Obama avoided the trap by saying only that he did not wish to “speculate”.

The question is, whether you support Netanyahu’s policies or not, how can the U.S. and Israel and their allies block attempt to block Iran from acquiring the bomb, while pretending that Israel doesn’t already have one? How do you justify such a flagrant double standard?

14 Foods That Cleanse the Liver

Modern society is a sad state that produces many over-processed livers. When we overeat or eat processed or fried foods, and, anytime we are exposed to environmental pollutants or stress, the liver becomes overworked and overloaded. When the liver is taxed, it can’t process toxins and fat in an efficient way. There are many foods that can help cleanse the liver naturally by stimulating its natural ability to clean toxic waste from the body.

White House Petition Against Mandatory Vaccination Reaches 100,000 Signature Threshold — Will Obama Respond?

The petition up on WhiteHouse.gov against mandatory vaccinations has, at the time of writing this, reached well over the 100,000 signatures needed by March 6th in order to supposedly garner a response from our president’s administration.

The petition is short, sweet, and to the point:

No human being should be FORCED to be vaccinated against their will and/or personal/religious beliefs. I petition against making vaccinations of any kind mandatory. This includes forcing children to be vaccinated to attend public schools, activities, and daycare centers. This also includes adults working in the public or private sector.

The fact that this even has to be petitioned in the first place, however — that the people so fear their government would take away their basic sense of medical freedom — is a sure sign of tyranny.

Video: Student Loans Are Like STDs (Everyone Is Catching Them)

Student loan debt is the next big economic sledgehammer that's about to come down on this country...the next big bubble to burst following the housing bubble.

Consider this. Student loan debt is somewhere upwards of $1.3 Trillion in this country these days — and that's just the official government loans, not private lenders, etc. The Congressional Budget Office is estimating that's going to double in the next decade as tuition rises and more people go back and get even more loans, going to grad school in the hope that if they take on even more debt and get another degree, maybe they'll finally be able to get that magical job where they can afford to live to be debt free one day to match it... a condition known these days as "American Dream Syndrome."

DEADLY BACTERIA RELEASE SPARKS CONCERN AT HIGH-SECURITY LOUISIANA LAB FOR VACCINE RESEARCH ON PATHOGEN THAT ESCAPED

A dangerous, often deadly, type of bacteria that lives in soil and water has been released from a high-security laboratory at the Tulane National Primate Research Center in Louisiana. Officials say there is no risk to the public. Yet despite weeks of investigation by multiple federal and state agencies, the cause of the release and the extent of the contamination remain unknown, according to interviews and records obtained by USA TODAY.

The incident has raised concerns that bacteria from the lab may have contaminated the facility's grounds and though initial, limited tests didn't detect it, some officials are pressing behind the scenes for more action, records show. The safety breach at Tulane's massive lab complex 35 miles north of New Orleans is the latest in a recent series of significant biosafety accidents at some of the most prestigious laboratories in the country where research is performed on bacteria and viruses that are classified as potential bioterror agents.

The latest wake-up call arrived in a Guardian article earlier this week. The story features a secret prison not unlike the CIA torture detention centers all over the world whereby the Chicago police hold rounded up US citizens for hours or days at a time for interrogation. The same internationally illegal roundups of suspected “potential terrorists” (which by latest Gestapo America standards can easily be you or me) that the CIA and military black ops deploy globally, are being covertly conducted not only in Obama’s hometown where his thug buddy Rahm rules, but likely every US city and soon coming to a neighborhood near you.

Mystery of U.S. defense contractor who fell to his death from Saudi hotel room just minutes after sending frantic text begging friend for help

An American defense contractor found dead at the bottom of a Saudi Arabian hotel in January had injuries consistent with homicide, according to a medical exam carried out after his body was returned to the U.S.

Christopher Cramer, 50, of New Hampshire, was found dead on January 15 outside the Sahara Makarim Hotel in the city of Tabuk. Saudi police have classified Cramer's death as suicide, but just hours before his death he had frantically texted friends in the U.S. begging for help.

DoD Releases “Evidence” of Snowden’s Damages to National Security… and It’s COMPLETELY Redacted

Per a Freedom of Information Act Request lawsuit filed by Vice News, the Department of Defense has released a report on the damaging effects of Edward Snowden’s 2013 NSA leaks. The only problem? It’s redacted. Entirely. Not a crumb of evidence was present in the “evidence” the government released.

The “assessment” is made up of multiple reports collectively over 100 pages long and was released by the Defense Intelligence Agency, a wing of the Department of Defense. It was made by two dozen DIA analysts and is fully blocked out, save for several headings.

Boost for Bibi? Widening rift with Obama could propel Netanyahu in upcoming election

Israelis are increasingly convinced President Obama is meddling in their upcoming election, and some observers predict the White House's alleged effort to undermine Benjamin Netanyahu could indeed wind up tipping the scales – in favor of the prime minister.

Tsarnaev lawyers urge appeals court to move trial from Boston

In a federal appeals court Thursday, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s defense team argued that what the federal district court has been doing for five and a half weeks – interviewing prospective jurors – is essentially meaningless. The saturation of media coverage and, perhaps even more important, the personal connection Massachusetts residents feel to the Boston Marathon bombing, add up to a “presumption of prejudice” so strong, argued public defender Judith Mizner, that jurors cannot predict how they will react once evidence is presented during trial.

City of Cleveland: 12-year-old Tamir Rice caused his own death by failing to ‘avoid injury’

According to court documents obtained by BuzzFeed’s Stephanie McNeal, the city of Cleveland, Ohio is claiming that 12-year-old Tamir Rice’s death — as well as the pain and suffering caused to his family by it — was his own fault.

Tamir Rice was shot and killed while playing with a replica gun in a park last November. Rice had been playing with the replica in the park when rookie Officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner pulled up in a police cruiser and, within two seconds, shot him dead.

The incident was captured on video, but neither Officer Loehmann nor his partner knew that when they gave investigators their initial statements, in which they claimed that Rice was with a group of young boys and was waving the gun around with the intention of shooting someone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am very ready for the assassinations of innocent kids of color by cops end in this country right now.

But it is going to take one hell of a lot of work, on the part of police, families, and faith communities, to get this country to the point where this never happens again.

Officials in the judiciary, police department, and local city officials should be shamed and shocked by this; this 12 year old kid should not have had to die, with officers lying through their teeth about what really happened here.

Police chief apologizes after being arrested in Dania prostitution sting

It wasn't just any cop who answered the online ad for the "two-girl" special.

It was the top cop from the Miami Gardens Police Department, deputies say.

Police Chief Stephen Edward Johnson, 53, was arrested Friday by detectives posing as escorts in a Dania Beach hotel room.

After making a phone call to negotiate a price of $100 for a threesome Friday, Johnson knocked on the door of Room 423 at 6:20 p.m., a sheriff's report said. What he found inside were cops posing as prostitutes in an undercover sting operation by the Broward Sheriff's Office.

The Next Empire

Throughout history, political, financial, and military leaders have sought to create empires. Westerners often think of ancient Rome as the first empire. Later, other empires formed for a time. Spain became an empire, courtesy of its Armada, its conquest of the New World, and the gold and silver extracted from the West. Great Britain owned the 19th century but lost its empire due largely to costly wars. The US took over in the 20th century and, like Rome, rose as a republic, with minimal central control, but is now crumbling under its own governmental weight.

Invariably, the last people to understand the collapse of an empire are those who live within it.

Paul Craig Roberts – The CIA May Have Just Assassinated Boris Nemtsov In Moscow To Blame Putin

10 Reasons Washington Has War Fever

But as Dorothy told her dog, Toto, in the classic "Wizard of Oz" movie, "I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore," we're also not in the America of our Founding Fathers any more, either. Real capitalism and free markets simply do not exist any longer. A few powerful interests manipulate all markets, unlimited fiat money is a profitable franchise and we are attempting to police and control the entire world to maintain our leadership position held since the end of World War Two.

Today you are a fool to trust what the government or press claims is true, fair and balanced, as it's all just propaganda. Regulatory organizations exist only to protect the favored industries not the public, our legal system is a joke and all wars fought for democracy against evil are just looting expeditions against other nations out for profits, gain and natural resources.

Rehab, Jeb Bush-Style

The Republican front-runner seems to be addicted to the warmongers and regime-changers who inspired his brother’s foreign policy. Which should drive a sane person to drink.

If you want to know why bad decisions on foreign policy tend to get repeated, perhaps a good place to start is reliance on the same people who made those bad choices in the past to get it right the second time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF the tickets are Jeb vs/Hillary, the American people have absolutely no real choice in the 016 election.

It is simply a question of which candidate corporations think they will get the most mileage out of supporting, period, end of discussion.

They are both dyed in the wool interventionists and war mongers, not at all interested in the welfare of America's citizens, but eagerly doing the bidding to those corporations which fund them.

With either candidate, expect more wars, and an ever deepening downturn in the money Americans can expect, reasonably, to earn. But hey, those corporations which support these candidates will be going like gangbusters!!

Exxon Mobil Settles $9 Billion New Jersey Environmental Case for $250 Million

A long-fought legal battle to recover $8.9 billion in damages from Exxon Mobil Corporation for the contamination and loss of use of more than 1,500 acres of wetlands, marshes, meadows and waters in northern New Jersey has been quietly settled by the state for around $250 million.

The lawsuits, filed by the State Department of Environmental Protection in 2004, had been litigated by the administrations of four New Jersey governors, finally advancing last year to trial. By then, Exxon’s liability was no longer in dispute; the only issue was how much it would pay in damages.

The stakes were high, given the enormous cost the state’s experts had placed on restoring and replacing the resources damaged by decades of oil refining and other petrochemical operations, as well as of the public’s loss of use of the land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder who, and for how much, got the damages reduced so incredibly, given the damage done.

The National-Security State’s ISIS Racket

Never mind that the national-security apparatus produces the very threats it then uses to scare people with. After all, did anyone hear of ISIS before the U.S. invaded and occupied Iraq, a country that had never attacked the United States or even threatened to do so?

No. That’s because there was no ISIS before the apparatus invaded and occupied Iraq. It was the invasion and occupation, along with other interventions by the apparatus, such as in Syria and Libya, that has produced ISIS, the new, scary enemy of the day.

But of course, no statist wants to hear that. The national-security state is akin to a god, one that is keeping them safe from all those scary creatures thousands of miles away from American shores, creatures that are brought into existence by the very policies of the apparatus itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ISIS is a tool of American military training and funding; a "terrorist organisation du jure" which allegedly beheads people, and tortures puppies.

And if you have a hard time wrapping your head around that, please look at the following:

As reported at beforeitsnews.com:

In fact, there is a direct link between those terrorists and the U.S. foreign policy. Last year, Spiegel declared that Americans were training the Syrian rebels in Jordan to oust Assad.[8] But the evidence went back to 2012: “Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, were trained in 2012 by U.S. instructors working at a secret base in Jordan, according to informed Jordanian officials. “The officials said dozens of ISIS members were trained at the time as part of covert aid to the insurgents targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. The officials said the training was not meant to be used for any future campaign in Iraq.”

This was reported at globalresearch.ca:

The Washington Post would report that the United States military accidentally dropped by air at least one pallet of weapons and supplies that ended up in the hands of the so-called “Islamic State” or ISIS. While a combination of factors about this particular story appear suspicious, including SITE Intelligence Group’s involvement in quickly disseminating an alleged video of ISIS terrorists rooting through the supplies, one fact remains. While the US claims it has “accidentally” allowed weapons to fall into the hands of ISIS terrorists, in reality, the US has been arming, funding, and aiding ISIS and its terrorist affiliates either directly or through Saudi, Qatari, Jordanian, or Turkish proxies since at least 2011.

And this, reporteed at thenewamerican.com:

Some astute U.S. lawmakers who previously warned that Obama’s strategy of arming al-Qaeda and other jihadists in Syria would backfire did speak out about the insanity. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), for example, outlined those concerns on Fox News after the president’s speech about supposedly degrading and destroying ISIS. “The one thing we need to remember about all of this,” he said, “we need to remember how we got here. The reason we got here is we took it upon ourselves to topple secular dictators who were the enemy of radical Islam.” But what about all those air strikes Obama is supposedly conducting against ISIS? Well, according to the Assad regime, which is locked in mortal combat with ISIS and other Western-backed Islamists, Obama’s unconstitutional military adventures, perhaps not surprisingly, have done nothing to weaken it. “All the indications say that (Islamic State) today, after two months of coalition air strikes, is not weaker,” explained Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moualem in a recent TV interview cited by Reuters. The most powerful military in the world could not even “weaken” a rag-tag group of terrorists after two months of air strikes and countless millions worth of military support to “moderates”? If that is the case — which sounds rather implausible — perhaps Americans deserve a refund for the hundreds of billions of dollars spent each year on the military. More likely, though, is that, as top Obama officials have explained openly, the real purpose of the “anti-ISIS” war is to remove Assad — at least initially — on the road toward “world order.” “I recognize the contradiction in a contradictory land and a contradictory circumstance,” Obama claimed in September 2014, downplaying the insanity and deception as if it were all some confusing misunderstanding. The week before those comments, though, his own ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, admitted in a separate TV interview that deposing Assad was among the real goals of the administration’s “contradictory” Syria policy. “The training also will service these troops [Obama’s so-called ‘moderate rebels’] in the same struggle that they’ve been in since the beginning of this conflict against the Assad regime,” Power said, contradicting the key selling point for arming “moderate” jihadists — to fight ISIS.

So folks, the very force the US government is decrying and condemning verbally is that same force that the the US government is supporting, covertly, monetarily, and with US weapons.

Deal with it; the words "credibility" and "Federal Government" can no longer be used in the same sentence.

Hillary Clinton Exposed Part 2 – Clinton Foundation Took Millions From Countries That Also Fund ISIS

The Gulf monarchs didn’t attain absolute power by being teddy bears. They are devious, ruthless experts in playing one side against the other. Incredibly, many of these same countries allowing funds to flow to ISIS were simultaneously padding the coffers of the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. The Washington Post reports:

The Clinton Foundation accepted millions of dollars from seven foreign governments during Hillary Rodham Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, including one donation that violated its ethics agreement with the Obama administration, foundation officials disclosed Wednesday.

Most of the contributions were possible because of exceptions written into the foundation’s 2008 agreement, which included limits on foreign-government donations.

Liquidation looms for insurance cooperative

An insurance cooperative created to provide health care in Iowa and Nebraska will be formally liquidated this weekend.

Iowa Insurance Commissioner Nick Gerhart said Thursday that a Polk County judge has agreed to approve the liquidation plan, which will be finalized on Saturday night.

CoOportunity is a federally funded nonprofit established to provide health care in Iowa and Nebraska. Gerhart took the cooperative over after he determined the nonprofit’s claims would exceed its available cash.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We will see more of these. The more-costly Obamacare policies come with sky-high deductibles, which means they don't really pay that much for your health care. The costs that used to be covered by the major health insurance companies that wrote the ACA are now being shifted onto supplemental insurance programs, which are then driven into bankruptcy.

Thank you, Obamacare!

What Happens When An Unstoppable Force Meets An Immovable Object?

"Once there was a man of Ch`u selling shields and spears. In praising his shields he said, 'My shields are so solid that nothing can penetrate them.'

In response to his words somebody asked, 'How about using your spears to pierce through your shields?'

To this the man could not give any reply. Indeed, impenetrable shields and absolutely penetrative spears cannot stand together at the same time."

I strongly oppose 'Audit the Fed,' Yellen says

U.S. Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen testified before Congress on Tuesday after presenting her semiannual monetary policy report.

The Federal Reserve will not hike rates for the next few Federal Open Market Committee meetings, according to Yellen's prepared remarks.

So what kind of "funny business" has been going on here, that she is frightened of the light of day on the actions of the Fed?!?

Mandatory Military Service for Congress

For US foreign policymakers, war is not unlike a video game. Press a few buttons here, issue a few directives there, and presto, events take a different turn. At night, they still sleep safely in their own beds, risking nothing more than their own political power.

Maybe mandatory Congressional military service wouldn’t do anything to change their perspective. Maybe they’re so permanently deranged that experiencing the terror of war wouldn’t cause them to waver a bit. I don’t think so, though. I think politicians are self-interested human beings like the rest of us, and that forcing them to immediately confront what they’ve done to the world would make for a lot fewer wars. Or a lot fewer politicians.

CIA Planning Major Expansion of Cyber-Espionage Capabilities

The CIA, usually known for it’s human-based intelligence gathering work, has announced plans to expand its cyber-espionage operations.

The changes will come as part of a restructuring effort after the agency decided that in the age of digital media, it’s traditional, human-centered approach to intelligence gathering is behind the times, US officials told the Washington Post.

“[CIA Director John] Brennan is trying to update the agency to make sure it is prepared to tackle the challenges in front of it,” said a U.S. official familiar with the plan told the Post, adding that “I just don’t think you can separate the digital world people operate in” from the CIA’s traditional methods.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This announcement makes me feel anything but more safe.

Rather, in the hands of this particular organisation, such capabilities are going to be used to chill free speech even further, and and attempt to forcibly manufacture consent, where none actually exists.

Even though Brennan would probably love to see the internet suppressed completely, except for limited commercial application, free honest (and peaceful) discussions of what is going on with government will still exist, in some incarnation or another; as the old phrase goes, the genie is out of the bottle, and unlikely to be re-bottled any time soon.

And I will state again: I am a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence of any kind. I look for peaceful, workable, logical solutions to this country's problems, and those of the world.

But the most monumentally simple way to avoid threats to this country, and her people, would be for this government to stop mucking about in other people's countries for resources to which it has absolutely no moral right whatsoever.

I look at what China and Russia are doing to get what they need; they are making deals.

What does the US government do to get what it needs, and prevent the financial and political aspirations of other countries whose currencies might eclipse the US dollar? It wages wars.

And what is wrong with this picture?!?

Hillary Clinton’s War on Women

Hillary Clinton portrays herself as a champion of women in the workforce, but women working for her in the U.S. Senate were paid 72 cents for each dollar paid to men, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis of her Senate years’ salary data.

During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.

The analysis compiled the annual salaries paid to staffers for an entire fiscal year of work from the years 2002 to 2008. Salaries of employees who were not part of Clinton’s office for a full fiscal year were not included. Because the Senate fiscal year extends from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30, Clinton’s first year in the Senate, which began on Jan. 3, 2001, was also not included in the analysis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For all women bandying about the word "inevitability" when discussing Hillary's potential run for the Presidency in 2016, please think again; she is not the champion of workplace equality you have allowed yourself to be hoodwinked in to believing she is.

With Hillary as President, we will see more wars, more income inequality, more US poverty, and infinitely less freedom of the press, particularly for the independent media, which she despises with almost missionary fervor.

Bail-Ins have begun: J.P. Morgan to Start Charging On Some Deposits

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. is preparing to charge large institutional customers for some deposits, citing new rules that make holding money for the clients too costly, according to a memo reviewed by The Wall Street Journal and people familiar with the plan.

The largest U.S. bank by assets is aiming to reduce the affected deposits by up to $100 billion by the end of 2015, according to a bank presentation Tuesday morning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We will, most likely, see this move from large institutions to very much smaller to, finally, the place where you do you banking.

And paired with that, I would be willing to bet, currency controls, which will only allow you to take out relatively small amounts of cash out of your checking account at one time.

PLEASE, do not have any more money in your checking account than you absolutely need to pay your bills; place the rest under your personal control. And do not hold anything in a safe deposit box you value, because those are now the property of the US government, in case of "national emergency."

9 surprising industries getting filthy rich from mass incarceration

It’s no coincidence that the United States now imprisons more of its people than any other country in the world: mass incarceration has become a giant industry in the U.S., resulting in huge profits not only for private prison companies, but also, for everything from food companies and telecoms to all the businesses that are using prison labor to cut their manufacturing costs. The prison-industrial complex even has its own lobbyists: according to a 2011 report from the Justice Policy Institute (JPI), the U.S.’ largest private prison company, the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), and their competitor the GEO Group have both spent hundreds of thousands of dollars lobbying for longer prison sentences. And the American Bail Coalition has been lobbying for the bail bond industry for 23 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current prison system in the US is corrupt, insane, and guarantees a ridiculously high rate of recidivism.

Even our most prestigious journals publish research based on falsified studies, according to Charles Seife, a journalism professor whose class spent a semester trying to figure out why the data don’t get corrected once research fraud comes to light. “As a result,” Seife writes, “nobody ever finds out which data is bogus, which experiments are tainted, and which drugs might be on the market under false pretenses.”

James O’Keefe: “I Am Afraid for My Life”Journalist set to release bombshell story

Whatever its nature, the story promises to be a big one given the impact generated by O’Keefe’s previous work.

In 2007, O’Keefe posed as a donor wanting to give money to Planned Parenthood to pay for the abortion of black and other minority babies. Workers at numerous Planned Parenthood clinics agreed to accept the donation on these terms.

O’Keefe’s biggest scalp was undoubtedly his 2009 take down of ACORN, an advocacy organization for people on low income. Hidden camera footage published by O’Keefe showed ACORN employees giving advice on how to evade detection for tax evasion, human smuggling and child prostitution. Congress voted to eliminate federal funding for ACORN as a result of the exposé.

In August 2014, O’Keefe demonstrated the porous state of the U.S. border when he crossed an unguarded footbridge in the upper Rio Grande while dressed as Osama Bin Laden.

Coins for Abbott: Indonesians rally to repay tsunami aid, call Australian PM ‘Shylock’

Indonesians have mobilized in record numbers to collect cash for the Australian PM, who touched a raw nerve by bringing up Australia’s $1 bn in tsunami relief aid to Jakarta while making a clemency appeal for convicted drug traffickers.

Images of Australian Prime Minister Tonny Abbott with red tape crossed over his mouth can be seen all over Indonesia, particularly in Jakarata. Loads of silver coins are covering banners spread on the ground – all part of the “repay” protest campaign that has spread like a bushfire across the island nation.

Gone Midnight in the Place where the Sun don't Shine.

The world is in the spin cycle of a backwards washing machine. It's not as much backwards as it is haphazard. From spin it next goes to wash and then it goes to rinse. You can apply a metaphysical perspective to this, should you be so inclined and actually in possession of one. Most people are not. In order to both pursue what you are after and- at the same time- justify it against all the admonitions of conscience, you have to suspend or discard reason altogether. You have to take logic and turn it into a tortured origami. You have to intentionally embrace denial, in place of being open to the truth because otherwise, your humanity will shotgun your bullshit into an inactive state and then you lose all your hooks, hinges and hangers.

Not Very Funny

This is the serious part of tonight's event, except that Lee often deals with very serious topics. So what I mean is: this is the unfunny part of tonight's event, except that I'm going to talk about the United States government. One of my favorite things that Mark Twain didn't really say but definitely should have said was "Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it." He left out the possibility of imbeciles who are putting us on.

They have spent hundreds of years creating the public mindset which they manipulate in our generation with the most perfect precision. Words, phrases and thought patterns are a political science that triggers exact and predictable responses to political rhetoric.

They have many names — the elite, Illuminati, Zionists, Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, World Bank and International Monetary Fund, to name a few — but in the end they are one in the same. Their goals are one in the same. Their goals are not your goals, but they are masters at convincing you they are.

Houston Muslim School Burned Down In What Investigators Say Is Likely An Arson Attack

Unfortunately, the execution of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill was not the only Islamophobic violence that happened this week. The same week, an Arab American family was assaulted in Dearborn, and now in Houston comes a horrible story of what appears to be an arson attack on an Islamic school for young children.

The Quba Islamic Institute opened in January of 2013 with the goal of doing Sunday school, summer school, and after-school programs for young children as well as host other Muslim events. Here's a photo from children there shooting hoops they posted yesterday on their Facebook:

The Pentagon's massive $534 billion budget request could force deep cuts elsewhere

The Pentagon decision to seek a 2016 budget that far exceeds federal spending caps poses the risk of a big across-the-board funding cut like the one that forced the department to put civilian workers on unpaid leave two years ago.

But defense officials say the department will not repeat some of the decisions it made in 2013 that exacerbated the problem once the automatic cuts, known as "sequestration," went into effect nearly halfway through the fiscal year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of spending requested by the Pentagon can only mean one thing: they have been informed that they will be fighting in perpetual wars which will see no end in the lifetime of the Pentagon officials requesting this money.

Republicans seize on HSBC scandal to hold up Loretta Lynch's confirmation

Senate Republicans are seizing on the global tax scandal engulfing HSBC to delay the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, the Guardian can reveal.

The Republican chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, Chuck Grassley, was on Friday preparing a fresh tranche of questions for Lynch about the huge cache of leaked data showing how HSBC’s subsidiary helped conceal billions of dollars from domestic tax authorities.
HSBC could yet be prosecuted over tax-dodging scheme, warns Loretta Lynch
Obama’s nominee for attorney general negotiated a deal with HSBC two years ago that saw it avoid criminal charges but Lynch says DoJ still has powers to act.

Grassley and another Republican senator are planning to investigate whether Lynch could have done more to stand up to the world’s second largest bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions Republicans are bringing up are fully legitimate, and whoever vetted Loretta Lynch should have known that these issues would come up during the process of confirmation.

How deeply Ms. Lynch is, herself, mired in this controversy, is not something which should have been discovered so late in the process, and Democrats have only themselves to blame for not taking a closer look at this earlier.

Americans want someone in this very high position who will justly administer the laws, not bend them for the sake of the very well positioned.

But of course, Eric Holder himself has played fast and loose with the law, in terms of APgate surveillance; IRSgate; his persecution of James Rosen; the Marc Rich Pardon; Fast and Furious; and his position against 2nd Amendment Rights.

It is obvious, with the "baggage" Ms. Lynch carries, that this White House wants someone who "followed in Holder's footsteps" in terms of potential comfort with corruption on the biggest possible scale, and the outcomes of Ms. Lynch's tenure as the Attorney General, should she get confirmed, would most probably be more of the same.

We should all rage at how the HMRC Gestapo pick on the little people while doing cosy deals with the super rich

As someone who was subjected last year to an HMRC inspection of my tax affairs, I could not be more outraged at the revelations that some of the wealthiest people in Britain have been engaging in tax avoidance on a vast scale by exploiting the secrecy offered by HSBC’s Swiss private bank.

Labour, on whose watch most of this scandal occurred, have demanded to know whether David Cameron interrogated Stephen Green — the former HSBC chairman, who was in charge of the Swiss operation — when he granted him a peerage and a job as Trade Minister.

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband — who as the Mail reports today has, with his brother, pursued lucrative tax avoidance strategies — is trying to start a new class war by throwing rocks at rich Tory donors such as philanthropist Lord Fink, whose name appears on the list of clients in Switzerland.

There is a permanent class wear, waged by the upper classes on everyone else.

Overflow funeral crowd mourns 3 Muslims killed in N.C.

The crowd of more than 5,000 mourners attending the funeral Thursday in Raleigh for three Muslims who were shot to death was so large the services had to be moved from a mosque to a nearby athletic field.

The service for Deah Shaddy Barakat, a 23-year-old dental student, his wife Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha, 21, and her sister Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha, 19, of Raleigh, began after midday Muslim prayers.

The three were killed at an apartment building in Chapel Hill, N.C., on Tuesday in what police say was an apparently long-simmering dispute over a parking space. Police are also investigating whether religious hatred was a factor in the shootings.

Then we find that despite Poroshenko's immediate actions to the contrary following it, there's a new cease fire supposed to be taking place in The Ukraine. Would this have anything to do with Greece moving into the Russian orbit or... just another gambit, as the result of failed western policies, to injure Russia for not knuckling under to the international force of ZOG? As it so happens, more and more corporations are doing more and more business with Russia than ever before. Something is going on but I wouldn't know what that is.

Obama’s Force Authorization is a Blank Check for War Worldwide

Even if our policies led to no boots on the ground, the unintended consequences of blowback and the enemy obtaining more American weapons will continue. The CIA has said that 20,000 foreigners are on their way to Iraq and Syria to join the ISIS. Our government has no more credibility in telling us the truth about the facts that require us to expand our military presence in this region than Brian Williams. Constant war propaganda has proven too often to be our nemesis in supporting constant war promoted by the neoconservatives and the military industrial complex.

It’s my opinion that giving additional authority to wage war in the Middle East is a serious mistake. Instead, the authority granted in 2001 and 2002 should be repealed. A simple and correct solution would be for our elected officials to follow the rules regarding war laid out in the Constitution.

Lawyer moved Halliburton subsidiary bribes through secret Swiss HSBC accounts

A network of secretive banks and offshore tax havens was used to funnel $182 million in bribes to Nigerian officials in exchange for $6 billion in engineering and construction work for an international consortium of companies that included a then Halliburton subsidiary.

In 2010 Nigeria indicted former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney, who was CEO of Halliburton before he was elected, only to later clear him when Halliburton worked out a $35 million settlement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No surprise here: this is the way many very large corporations operate.

The bribes are just a cost of doing business.

Bob Simon, ‘60 Minutes’ Correspondent, Dies in Manhattan Car Crash at 73

Mr. Simon was a passenger in a livery cab that sideswiped a Mercedes-Benz sedan stopped at a red light on 12th Avenue near West 30th Street about 6:45 p.m., the police said. The cab then careened into the median, crashing into the metal stanchions separating the northbound and southbound traffic lanes. Mr. Simon was taken to Mount Sinai Roosevelt Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Some readers have tried to link Simon's death with his recent coverage of the HSBC scandal, but the description of this accident sounds like a genuine mash-up. Not reported in this version is that Simon was not wearing his seat belt.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

Another JPMorgan Banker Murder-Suicide Added To The List Of 71 Dead NWO Bankers By Un-Natural Causes!

By now, there have been so many banker-related suicides that it has become a moot point of i) tracking them all or ii) trying to find a pattern.

And yet, one name continues to stand out: JPMorgan.

The bank which has been most prominent among the list of “suicided” bankers notched one more casualty over the weekend when “a JPMorgan Chase & Co. employee strangled and stabbed his wife to death before turning the knife on himself, according to police who are treating the couple’s death in Bergen County, New Jersey as a murder-suicide.”

Amazon Japan’s Child Porn Problem?

Amazon Japan, the Japanese arm of Amazon, the world’s largest online shopping website, is facing an investigation by the Japanese police on suspicion of aiding and abetting the sale of child pornography on its website—a problem that the company should have known about at least since 2009. In that year, as a member of the NGO Lighthouse (formerly known as Polaris Project Japan), we brought attention to the problem in petitions and emails to the company.

The issue is not about Amazon selling this trash itself, it’s about so-called third-party vendors who showcase the porn on Amazon’s site. But according to its critics, the net result is basically the same: Amazon’s accusers say it is facilitating the sexual exploitation of children.

Three American students have been shot to death at a residential complex of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and a suspect has been arrested over the incident, according to local police.

Chapel Hill police told local news outlets that Craig Stephen Hicks, 46, was arrested and charged with killing the three Muslim students.

He is being held at the Durham County Jail, and is expected to make a first court appearance Wednesday morning.

In a statement posted online, Chapel Hill police said that "preliminary investigation indicates that the crime was motivated by an ongoing neighbour dispute over parking."

"We understand the concerns about the possibility that this was hate-motivated and we will exhaust every lead to determine if that is the case," the statement said.

The Significant Difficulty of Clear Thinking in Dark Time Zones.

It is these banking families and tiny collectives of mercenary beings who are behind nearly every conflict on Earth. Their greatest defense for their continuance is to paint themselves as victims of history, when their own victims outnumber them a million to one. They control those portions of history that are selectively written. They control what books are published and what the books contain. They control the curriculum of the educational systems. They control the news and whatever art is permitted to be displayed or performed. They are near exclusively Satanists and that is why illiterate zombies like Kanye West are celebrated and enjoy such a wide proliferation of their incredibly mediocre efforts. They are the force that causes catamite redundancy clowns like Beck to proclaim that uninspired pornographers like West are geniuses. This allows for the airways of the world to be polluted by the banal and profane efforts of people like Nikki Minaj and Lil' Wayne.

Australia discontinues water, electricity services for Aboriginals

The Australian government has decided to discontinue the provision of water and electricity supplies to up to 200 indigenous communities, saying it can no longer afford the basic services, delegating it to state governments.

The remote communities, located across the northern tip of Australia and the Kimberley in the country’s northwest, will be deprived of essential services with the decision by the federal government, Vice News agency reported on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Western Australia (WA) state government has said it cannot afford to cover the costs either, estimating that at least some of the 274 communities in the state - perhaps as many as 200 - will have to close.

WA Premier Colin Barnett has, however, announced that cutting water and electricity supplies does not mean the communities will have to close down.

“There is nothing to stop people going on to land,” Barnett said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, Australian government; I have been to Sidney, and loved the city, and the people.

Obama still argues that we can't have transparency or the terrorists will win

The Obama administration, self-described Most Transparent Administration in History™, is currently engaged in a multi-pronged legal battle to prevent an iota more transparency related to illegal torture. If there was any lingering hopes that the President might use the last two years of his final term in office to bring some accountability to the despicable actions of the CIA or the US military, it appears that he will instead continue to use the power of the office to fight to keep them hidden.

Later today, the government will showcase its latest suppression effort, as the Justice Department will urge a federal judge in New York to keep secret hundreds of photos of torture from Abu Ghraib prison from almost a decade ago. President Obama once promised to release the photos, only to reverse himself months after coming into office – and he’s since been fighting for years to keep them secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absence of) surprise here.

History will ultimately judge President Obama as one of the most profound disappointments of American leadership in the 21st century.

And despite his faux populist persona, he is no less a slave to the global corporate and banking institutions than are his Republican counterparts.

It doesn't matter any more which of the two parties gets elected nationally; what wins is more corporate wealth; more personal wealth inequality; and more wars.

Pro-Israel lobby threteans Democrats who plan to skip Netanyahu speech

Several pro-Israel lobby groups in the United States have threatened to “publicly condemn” Democrats who plan to skip the Israeli prime minister’s speech about Iran before Congress next month.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s well-funded Jewish conservative backers say they may use their funds to draw attention in the districts and states of any Democratic lawmaker who is not at the US Capitol to listen to Netanyahu on March 3.

Netanyahu has been invited by House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner to address a joint session of Congress to speak about the “threat” of Iran’s nuclear energy program.

“This is, I think, a critical visit by the prime minister. If these Democrats would rather put partisan politics ahead of principle and walk out on the prime minister of Israel, then we have an obligation to make that known,” said Matt Brooks, the executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, a political lobbying group which promotes Jewish Republicans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Messrs Kline and Brooks: what is in the best interests of Tel Aviv, many times is NOT in the best interests of the American people, the American military, and the American economy; waging war against Iran happens to be one of those things NOT in the best interests of this country.

And the utter, unabashed hubris, Mr. Klein, of demanding that Democrats who don't show PROVE that they were ill and could not attend Netanyahu's speach by way of presenting a Doctor's note to you?!?

But Mr. Klein, I cannot possibly thank you enough for having given me a marvelous idea for a slogan campaign, that the American people - and all of Rivero's Rangers - should be up to, regarding Netanyahu's blatant attempt to sway US public policy against Iran.

It should be Teeshirts, Bumperstickers, and logos, faxed into every congressional office thickly, and that is:

Regarding Netanyahu's address to Congress:

"Hell, no, don't you go
Hell no, don't you go
Did you not get the word
To put YOUR country
first,
second and third?
Hell, no, don't you go,
hell, no, don't you go
We don't need Bibi
To dictate our foreign policy,
Hell no, don't you go
Hell no, don't you go,
IF you don't treat your fellow citizens right,
you'll be treated like Kryptonite.

Thanks again, Mr. Klein! You are too kind. :-)

CDC Caught Hiding Data Showing Mercury in Vaccines Linked to Autism

In a press release issued recently, one that almost no mainstream media sources have bothered to report, it was announced that Dr. Brian Hooker had finally received documents from the CDC through a Freedom of Information Act that revealed the CDC had access to data linking Thimerosal in vaccines to autism, non-organic sleep disorders, and speech disorders.

Two members of Congress helped Dr. Hooker draft his letter to the CDC, after having spent nearly 10 years submitting over 100 Freedom of Information Acts to no avail.

This information, so far, has been completely blacked out of the mainstream media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the US, medical care is ALL about profit, and very little about actual true patient care; this blackout on the information demonstrating thimerosal as toxic is only one more example of the trend here.

John Kerry notes successes against Islamic State, says more time is needed

A U.S.-backed coalition is “on the road” to winning the fight against Islamic State terrorists who reached new heights of barbarism last week, Secretary of State John F. Kerry declared Sunday, a rosy outlook rebutted by Kurdish leaders close to the conflict and Republican critics who say U.S. leadership is sorely lacking in several corners of the globe.

Mr. Kerry said the U.S.-led coalition, working with Arab partners, had taken back wide swaths of territory while eliminating top Islamic State commanders who had menaced a cross-section of Iraq and Syria, leading him to believe they are winning.

“I absolutely do,” he told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “And I think the evidence is not in my saying it, but it’s in the facts of what is happening.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Secretary, forgive me, but as a rational American citizen who loves her country very much, and is very concerned about it's future course, I am having an industrial-strength palm to forehead moment, at velocity, right now.

Sir, you have offered absolutely no specifics, stating instead, "...it's the facts of what is happening."

Mr. Secretary, this is sound and fury, signifying....absolutely nothing. There are no facts, no specifics, and the Kurds, on the ground fighting ISIS, have a spectacularly, diametrically opposite assessment of what is going on than do you.

Americans deserve more from their leadership; and sir, right now you and this Administration are absolutely not providing it, in terms of facts and figures which can be fact checked.

Your statements about ISIS leave American citizens very skeptical indeed,about if you folks actually have a coordinated plan, thought through to its logical conclusion.

Invading Mosul Could Be Excuse for US Ground War in Iraq

US warplanes continue to pound Mosul, the largest city in ISIS territory and the major prize Iraqi officials are constantly talking about retaking. Yet officials are heavily debating the timetable for retaking the city, and how difficult it will be.

ISIS has shown an ability to defeat Iraqi troops in head-on battles, even when backed by US warplanes, and the militants have had half a year to fortify Mosul, which they know is going to be attacked sooner or later.

US officials have downplayed the chances of Iraqi forces retaking the city on their own, and may be planning to use the importance of retaking it as an excuse to justify the use of US ground troops in direct combat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that, once again, our military and civilian leadership are collectively suffering from severe SMD (selective memory disorder.)

Does ANYONE in Foggy Bottom NOT remember Muqtata Al Sadr, the founder of the Mahdi Army which threatened US forces to commit to the SOFA agreement with the Iraqi government, or face deadly consequences?!?

This man is no less respected and revered than when he made those demands of the US government and military, and they took him at his word.

I don't know what the bookies in Vegas will wager the chances of him reviving that military unit, if the US goes into Mosul with boots on the ground, but I surely would not bet against it.

But I think there is another agenda here, IF Obama gets his authorization to use military force against ISIS, no matter where it happens to be operating, (Lichtenstein, look out!!) I would almost be willing to bet that the capturing of Mosul would be about the US military using it as a forward base for sending US troops on the ground in Syria.

The map at the upper right of this article screams, "location, location, location...from which to send US land troops into Syria."

Here are 5 appalling facts about maternity leave in ‘family values’ America

For a country so taken with the idea of “family values,” the United States does a remarkably terrible job at helping people start families. We are the only industrialized nation that doesn’t have a law guaranteeing that new mothers receive paid maternity leave, and only 12 percent of women are granted paid leave by their employers. In most workplaces, paternity leave remains unheard of. Though it is technically illegal to fire workers after learning they are pregnant, it is very difficult to prove the cause of termination, and discrimination against pregnant and nursing employees persists. Nationwide Insurance employee Angela Ames, who was fired last year for taking time to pump milk during the day, was told by her supervisor, “just go home to be with your babies.” Yet in a mind-bending perversion of gender equality, Ames recently lost a sex discrimination lawsuit because judges pointed out that men can lactate too.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF American women are avoiding pregnancy in order to be able to work, without recrimination, what does that say about the future of our society?!?

For me, having to hand off an infant at 6 weeks to a stranger is....not a great solution, but it is the only solution many young professional women have.

A Day Of Reckoning For The Euro Has Arrived – 26 TRILLION In Currency Derivatives At Risk

This is the month when the future of the eurozone will be decided. This week, Greek leaders will meet with European officials to discuss what comes next for Greece.

According to the Bank for International Settlements, 26.45 trillion dollars in currency derivatives are directly tied to the value of the euro.

Let that number sink in for a moment.

To give you some perspective, keep in mind that the U.S. government spends a total of less than 4 trillion dollars a year.

The entire U.S. national debt is just a bit above 18 trillion dollars.

So 26 trillion dollars is an amount of money that is almost unimaginable. And of course those are just the derivatives that are directly tied to the euro. Overall, the total global derivatives bubble is more than 700 trillion dollars in size.

42 ADMITTED False Flag Attacks

There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes.

In the following 42 instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admits to it, either orally or in writing:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the oldest tricks in the book; and before the age of the internet, countries could get away with this kind of thing, because public awareness was very low, and the ability to fact check also low.

Now...not so much. Governmental lies can pretty much be clocked with an egg timer these days.

VIDEO: Cancer epidemic underway in Fukushima — Rates up 6,000% says head of cancer research center — “This is definitely a holocaust… everything’s being swept under the rug” — “Very, very frightening… my family members are brainwashed”

Fukushima resident Chieko Shiina, supporter of the Fukushima Collaborative Clinic (translated by Carole Hisasue), Jan 24, 2015 (emphasis added):

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At some point, the Japanese people will be overwhelmed with total anger and hostility against the government of Japan, and TEPCO, for all the terrible conditions which existed at the reactor before it came down, which could have been remedied, but were not by a hubristic and lackadaisical management.

They are also going to be furious at the lies and coverups when both those in management and the government knew what the logical health conclusions would be for the people in Fukushima and the people of Japan in general.

I don't know what form that anger is going to take, but I can guarantee you: it won't be pretty.

How Obama Is Making the World More Dangerous

Whether it be the Middle East, Asia, Russia’s border, or the world economy, the actions of the Obama administration have leaned towards various forms of provocation and aggression – economic sanctions, threats, funneling arms, etc. This dynamic makes an eventual regional conflict inevitable, beyond the one already occurring in Syria/Iraq, where a U.S.-led proxy war against Syria and Iran is dangerously close to a full-out regional war.

The US public is dangerously ignorant about the significance of these various regional conflicts. To the extent that they’re even reported, the “news” has excelled at blaming others and sharpening conflict, rather than shedding light or presenting peaceful alternatives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because a geopolitical military strategy is the most hamfistedly, pigheadedly stupid thing the US government could do is, unfortunately, absolutely no guarantee that the US government will not do it.

A proxy war with Russia, which could well devolve into an actual, hot, shooting war, is just such a concept.

And the cold, hard, truth of the business is that at this point, the US military does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war with Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

IF the Obama administration decides to give legal aid to Ukraine, this will be tantamount to having declared war on Russia.

This war will involve both NATO and Europe, which has seen two disastrous wars on its own territory, and it appears that Hollande and Merkel are doing their level best to stop World War 3.

But please, God, SOMEONE in Obama's inner circle has to have the courage to tell him the truth; that if he cannot manage Poroshenko, the absolute wild card here, he had better back away from this upcoming debacle, and at warp speed.

France's Hollande is already calling for more autonomy for the breakaway Eastern Ukrainian republics; if that does not happen, the bloodshed will continue, and the US will again be mired in an horrific war, propping up a tinpot dictator to absolutely no avail, and with no tangible good coming to the people of the United States because of it.
