At least eight police officers were injured during a parade in Northern Ireland where members of the protestant Orange Order were commemorating a 17th-Century battle on a street in north Belfast. Police responded with water cannon and rubber bullets, and a helicopter was dispatched to monitor the scene. Clashes broke out as police moved in to prevent the march from diverting off its approved route. More than three thousand police officers were deployed at marches across Northern Ireland.

Iran deal: Bad news for ISIS & JSOP?

They’re calling it a “win-win.” But the Iran nuclear deal could be a “lose-lose” for two leading Middle Eastern terrorist organizations: Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and Jewish State in Occupied Palestine (JSOP).

Will terrorist leaders “Bibi” Netanyahu and “Caliph” al-Baghdadi call a joint press conference to denounce the deal?

The Iran nuclear deal represents an existential threat to these two terror organizations because it signals a possible change in Western policy away from the destabilization doctrine. Instead of pushing Balkanization and chaos, the West may now decide it can live with a reasonably stable Middle East. That would mean a long, slow recovery for the region from the wave of death and destruction that ensued from the Zionist genocide beginning in 1948, and the accelerated genocide provoked by the neocon coup d’état on September 11th, 2001.

U.S. law enforcement officials announced another terror arrest on Monday, after arming a mentally ill man and then charging him with having guns. ABC News quoted a “senior federal official briefed on the arrest” as saying: “This is a very bad person arrested before he could do very bad things.” But in a sting reminiscent of so many others conducted by the FBI since 9/11, Alexander Ciccolo, 23, “aka Ali Al Amriki,” was apparently a mentally ill man who was doing nothing more than ranting about violent jihad and talking (admittedly in frightening ways) about launching attacks—until he met an FBI informant. At that point, he started making shopping lists for weapons.

Greece ‘austerity deal’ explained in 1-minute video

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tips: What Really Happened, Zero Hedge

Appropriately for Greece being known as a birthplace of democratic ideals, Star Wars was created by George Lucas to tell the story of democracy devolving into vicious psychopathic empire. Real-world Greece (and here) is subject to vicious psychopathic wanna-be lords who only and always create debt owed to them, then demanding public austerity as the OBVIOUS mechanics of adding negative numbers forever only and always increases total debt.

The punchline of satire (my attempts here) and real-world is the same:

Be willing work-animals/slaves or die.

The .01% literal psychopathic “leaders” (and here) control today’s empire the very same as you read in high school history classes by controlling:

Greece’s union of civil servants, Adedly, called for a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, and for a series of demonstrations, the first one tonight at Syntagma Square, just below the Parliament, and another one on Wednesday evening, when Parliament is expected to vote on the new, even tougher, and immensely hated bailout package. The union for local government employees, Poe-Ota, also called for a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, the AFP reported. Two other demonstrations against austerity and the “euro” are planned for Monday night, one organized via social networks, the other by Antarsya, an anti-euro party that didn’t make it into Parliament.

3 Big Reasons Why The ‘Greek Debt Deal’ Is Really A German Trap

You see, the truth is that Greece desperately wants to stay in the euro, but Germany (and allies such as Finland) want Greece out. Since Germany can’t simply order Greece to leave the euro, they need some sort of legal framework which will make it possible, and that is what this new “deal” provides.

What is on display more brightly and clearly than ever, though, is the utter fakery of international banking. The players have lost faith in their own shenanigans. They simply go through the motions now awaiting the political fallout, which is to say the revolt of the people who can still do arithmetic. So, now Greece can supposedly expect another $90bn-equivalent in new loans on top of the $350bn-equivalent already racked up. That’s rich. The loan repayment schedule must look like a map of Middle Earth.

4,500 supporters of the Confederate flag create a spectacular EIGHT-MILE convoy in Florida to protest against the inflammatory symbol being taken down

Thousands of supporters of the Confederate flag have risen up - creating an eight-mile convoy of cars, motorbikes and pick-ups all displaying the controversial symbol.

Horns blared and flags fluttered from the 1,500 vehicles taking part in the Florida Southern Pride Ride on Sunday.

Protesters against the parade fired at least six gunshots towards the convoy but no one was injured, reported wftv.

"They were walking around both sides of the vehicle - in the front, in the back - and as they were walking across, they were hitting my car, using racial slurs and telling me that I didn't belong in their neighborhood because I was white," Pedersen said.

The group, all African-American, she says, kicked the vehicle and shook it violently. Her children were screaming from the back of the vehicle.

Pentagon Concludes America Is Not Safe Unless It Conquers The World. US Plans War against Russia.

The document announces a shift in focus from terrorists to “state actors” that “are challenging international norms.” It is important to understand what these words mean. Governments that challenge international norms are sovereign countries that pursue policies independently of Washington’s policies. These “revisionist states” are threats, not because they plan to attack the US, which the Pentagon admits neither Russia nor China intend, but because they are independent.

Be sure to grasp the point: The threat is the existence of sovereign states, whose independence of action makes them “revisionist states.” In other words, their independence is out of step with the neoconservative Uni-Power doctrine that declares independent action to be the right of Washington alone. Washington’s History-given hegemony precludes any other country being independent in its actions. By definition, a country with a foreign policy independent of Washington is a threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: instead of attempting to negotiate, like reasonable adults in the room would do, the Pentagon wage war with Russia and China?!? And saying this, in this report, PLUBLICLY?!?

A short memo to the Pentagon: have you all gone collectively barking mad, to believe that a war against Russia could be effectively fought and won at this point, when the American military doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a CONVENTIONAL war against Russia?

Have you collectively drunk the Koolaid, that the over-priced, under-performing, behind-schedule weaponry you have purchased will actually work for our men and women in uniform, who are going to need to rely on those weapons to actually work?!?

I would strongly caution all of you to reconsider this course of action. The unintended consequences of such an attack may well be horrific... and irreversible.

U.S. Military Makes Monumental Shift To Hollowpoint Pistol Ammunition

The stunning announcement was made at the U.S Army’s Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey yesterday during the military’s two-day “industry day” for the Modular Handgun System (MHS), which will conclude today.

A military lawyer who made a presentation during the Industry Day noted that the United States is not a signatory to the Hague Conventions which outlawed the use of “dum-dum” and expanding bullets more than a century ago. It is the military’s position that the shift to jacketed hollowpoint (JHP) ammunition, which more efficiently transfers energy to the target and which presents much less of a risk of over-penetration, is more humane and less of a risk to innocent civilians downrange in modern combat where there are often no clear front lines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why, and why now?!? This development is very alarming.

One Presidential Candidate Just Promised To Wage War In 4 Different Countries

Everywhere Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) looks in the world, he sees a crisis, and believes these combined crises could soon “throw the world into chaos we haven’t seen since WWII.”
In his first major foreign policy speech as a presidential candidate, Graham told a packed room at the Atlantic Council think tank in D.C. what he would do if he became Commander in Chief, a list that tilted heavily to where he would use military force.
Though he rattled off a laundry list of threats to U.S. national security throughout his speech, Graham called the current diplomatic negotiations with Iran “the greatest existential threat to world order” and “North Korea in the making.”
“I don’t mind Iran or any other nation having a nuclear power program for peaceful reasons,” he said. But if the current negotiations produce a deal that doesn’t include the ability for the U.S. to inspect Iran’s nuclear reactors “anytime, anywhere,” Graham would resort to “overwhelming” military force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how many stocks in defense industries Graham posesses, and how his personal profits will rise if, through some horrible nightmare scenario, he becomes the Republican's candidate for President, and gets elected.

And let's not pretend that we have not seen this before, someone originally considered "unelectable" by many, actually getting elected; remember George W. Bush's "election" (or, appointment, by the Supremes)?!?

Although Graham has served in the military (as a JAG for the Air Force), he personally has never seen combat.

And it strikes me that those candidates who have never been in the middle of a war zone are generally the most bloodthirsty about wanting to declare war on other countries, rather than try to do the adult, civilized thing by negotiation.

Confusing Congressional Food Stamp Cut Strikes In Michigan

Nobody could tell Audrey Webster of Clinton Township, Michigan, why her monthly food stamps went down from more than $100 to just $16 in February. The letter she received didn't say much.

"It said they would be cut, that's all," Webster, 63, told HuffPost. She said she didn't get much more information when she called the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

"They just told me that it was cut for the government's reasons," she said.

The culprit is Washington. The farm bill President Barack Obama signed into law last year came with small reductions to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Republicans pushed for steep cuts, arguing that food stamps were going to too many able-bodied adults who didn't have children and didn't have jobs. They pointed to a San Diego surfer who used his benefits for lobster and refused to get a real job. Democrats agreed to more modest cuts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is this woman supposed to do, dumpster dive for food to survive?!?

Most of the major food banks in this country are either completely tapped out, or running out of food on food distribution day. Trust me, I know: Mike and I support a local food bank, co-sponsored by my church and the local Catholic Church. It is always a race to make sure we have enough bags to provide for all the clients, characterized as "food insecure" by the state of Hawaii.

And the jobs?!? It's a "fuggetaboutit" moment, for jobs which are available, and generally have hundreds of applicants.

We the People are irrelevant and expendable to this government, which allows large corporations to offshore/outsource jobs where the labor is the cheapest they can find.

Iran Accuses U.S. Of Shifting Nuclear Demands As Talks Drag On

The Iran nuclear talks turned Friday from talk of progress to a blame game, with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif accusing the United States of shifting its demands. He dismissed a warning that the U.S. is ready to quit the negotiations as counterproductive.

Hours after his comments, Zarif met again U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry for another try at resolving differences standing in the way of a landmark deal that offers Iran sanctions relief in exchange for long-term and verifiable curbs on nuclear programs which Tehran could turn to making weapons.

The tougher rhetoric mirrored the frustrations by the sides as the current round of talks entered its 14th day. After blowing past two extensions, negotiators had hoped to wrap up the talks by Friday, but Zarif's comments cast doubts that agreement was near.

The sides had hoped to seal a deal before the end of Thursday in Washington in attempts to avoid delays in implementing their promises.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These talks have been engineered to fail from the beginning.

Agency’s request for 52,000 rounds of ammo for Hoover Dam prompts inquiry

In a move that’s prompting questions about the stockpiling of weapons by the federal government’s nonmilitary agencies, the Bureau of Reclamation wants to buy 52,000 rounds of ammunition for use in law enforcement at Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.

After learning about the purchase request, Nevada Rep. Mark Amodei vowed to inquire with the bureau about its operations, number of officers carrying firearms and how much ammunition it uses, according Brian Baluta, a spokesman for Amodei.

Department officials declined to provide specific information to the Sun regarding details of the ammunition purchase request. “We want to limit the amount of information any bad guys might have about our protection capabilities,” said Rose Davis, a Bureau of Reclamation spokeswoman.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

52,000 rounds?!?


What in heave;s name are they expecting, for someone to attempt to sabotage the Dam?!?

The battle between the NSA, FBI and other government agencies who are pushing to outlaw encryption and those who want privacy is the same battle fought by the Founding Fathers more than 2oo years ago.

After all, the NSA is doing to modern Americans what King George did to Colonial America … which was one of the main reasons the Founders launched the Revolution. And see this.

And Benjamin Franklin was called a traitor (like Edward Snowden) for blowing the whistle on the government’s actions.


While encryption might seem like a new affair, it is actually very old school … and something which the Founding Fathers extensively used.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The current demand for only the encryption that only US government agencies can decipher, is a clear demonstration of a government terrified of its own citizens.

And, as Mike demonstrated, 6 times on this website, none of the alphabet soup agencies in the US were able to decipher the encryption he created.

And please rest assured, the "bad guys" (drug dealers, etc.) already have encryption in place which is pretty bullet proof at this point, and unreachable by Federal authorities.

Extensive records from SWAT team raids in northeastern Massachusetts released today by the American Civil Liberties Union corroborate what police reform advocates have long insisted: that “Special Weapons And Tactics” units spend a majority of their time responding to low-risk situations that do not require SWAT’s quasi-military approach.

The documents include after-action reports from 79 SWAT operations between August 2012 and June 2014 by the Northeastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, or NEMLEC, a consortium of police departments covering 925 square miles in Middlesex and Essex Counties outside Boston. According to NEMLEC, its SWAT team exists to respond to “critical incidents,” mainly “active shooters, armed barricaded subjects, hostage takers, and terrorists.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Overkill by police departments has become the new normal, all over this country.

What we have had happen, in terms of American policing, is a return to "Code Napoleon Law", in which the suspect was considered guilty until proven innocent, which is the absolute polar opposite of the "innocent until proven guilty" premise of American jurisprudence.

This kind of policing, many times taught by IDF or ex-IDF members, is about enforcing fear, and causing police to treat innocent Americans just the way the IDF treats innocent Palestinians.

This is absolutely so wrong, that I don't know where to begin.

Putin: Where was EU when Greek crisis was evolving?

The European Commission should have adjusted the economic activity of Greece before the crisis, Russian President Putin has said, adding that the EU shouldn’t have issued such high bonuses and loans to the debt ridden country.

“Of course, all the blame can be shifted to the Greeks. But if there were violations in their [Greece] activity, where was the European Commission? Why didn’t it make any adjustments to the economic activity of the previous government of Greece?” Putin asked talking at the Q&A session with journalists on the final day of BRICS/SCO summits in Ufa.
